Über Mich

Recently moved back to South Africa from Japan.

I'm passionate about languages, and am currently studying Japanese. I love to share my language with keen learners, and help students overcome the challenges of learning English, no matter what level they're at.

I've taught students from 3 years old to 80 years old, and I know that at any age, although the difficulties we experience change, it's entirely possible to build our language skill.

I like to keep lessons stress-free, while still helpful and interesting, so I particularly enjoy teaching through casual conversation. Don't be afraid to try and to make mistakes. It's all part of the learning process!

I'm also starting a new Youtube channel with short English Conversation tips for Japanese students! Check it out! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC49WCoIaHYf0DRtyUclXnbA
