I am a Psychology and Communication Science graduate. I am an English Language Teacher and have taught at language centres in Cape Town and at universities in China. I own English Plus Global, a business that offers English courses to those who would like to develop or improve their English skills as well as English Teacher Training for those who would like to teach English.
As a teacher I work hard to create a learning environment that fosters critical thinking and problem solving. I present information in the most compelling way possible including relevant examples from the field of study. I believe transference of knowledge is important and I work to break down barriers between individual topics, to make connections, and encourage cross-functional applications.
I encourage my students to use novel ways to demonstrate their knowledge.
I strongly feel that the social and emotional development of students is paramount and that good content mastery can only happen when students develop their confidence and feel safe to express their thoughts and ideas.
My approach is tailored to the specific learning needs of each student. I get to know the students as individuals so I can appropriately support and challenge them academically.
I offer coaching workshops on a part-time basis. In my coaching I am a collaborative coach and use an integrated approach depending on my clients' needs. My own life experiences have given me the ability to work with compassion and understanding to help build on my clients' strengths enabling them to attain the growth they are committed to achieving.
I have been facilitating change in others for many years. I partner with my clients to help them design and create the life and careers they want. I tap into my clients' own resources focusing on positive emotions and core strengths.
