Summary

I am a 34-year-old South African native English-speaking CELTA-qualified English teacher, with 4+ years of experience teaching English to students locally and a further year of experience teaching English abroad. My involvement in language teaching stems from an interest in language acquisition and a passion for teaching in different cultural contexts. I am currently looking for teaching opportunities in the Middle-East and look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
