My name is Anastasia Weaver, I am a native English speaker from South Africa. I have been teaching ESL online for the past two years. I am fun, energized and always excited to teach about my culture and learn about other cultures. I have always loved working with people, especially with children. I volunteered for a year at Shine Literacy which is an organisation that trains you to teach English as a second language to children aged between nine and ten years old. Watching the children learn and grow and seeing the joy on their faces, knowing that I was making a difference in their lives made me realize that I want to keep teaching.
I am passionate about teaching. I have completed a level 5, 240 hours TEFL course with I-to-I TEFL and can teach anyone from beginners all the way to upper-advanced students. I am so excited to start teaching and meeting students and most importantly build students' confidence and keep making a difference in peoples lives.
I love using authentic material when teaching to allow students to practice the language with real objects and using real life situations. I love using conversations to teach and we can talk about any topic the student would like to cover. For a more structured method, if students are trying to get through an exam, I love using the Present, Practice and Production(PPP) to allow students to learn and practice the English language structures( grammar, punctuation, essay writing) in a more structured way.
Book a free trial lesson with me and we can discuss what your languages needs are( exam preparing, job interview, wanting to improve your overall English skills), test your English level, discuss which topics YOU would like to focus on and how many lessons you would like to have.
I believe that learning should be a fun, and enjoyable thing to do and that the student and the teacher can both learn from each other.
