Profissão: Business person, educator and project manager
Experiência de ensino: I somehow feel that one is born to be an educator. So my first lesson was in grade 2 where I helped Mrs Salmon out teaching a new girls Maths! For some reason, I did not go straight into teaching, but did a business degree. While working for Siemens, one of the task was to go on training to learn the new computer system they installed for the commercial officers and I ended up patiently training the staff to use it! I immigrated to Germany and one of the jobs that fasinated me that I did, was to sell Encyclopadia Britannica to the Germans. Remember back then in 1991, there was no Google. Part of this job was to train sales representatives how to sell. After this, it was time to settle down and have children, but being the person that I was, I had to do something, so we started an English play group. I realised that there was a need for English and then continued serving the community with anything from conversation to tutoring learners. I then proceeded to join a language Institute where I taught Business English. On my return to South Africa in 2007, I joined a training company where we provided soft skills development to adults, which included courses such as Introduction to Project Management, Customer Care and Finance for Non-financial Managers to name a few. I proceeded to work for the University of the Free State, where we provided English Literacy and English for Academic Purposes to first year students as majority of our students do not have English as their home language. My final job before immigrating to South Africa was to support teachers in Curriculum knowledge development, learning of new teaching strategies as well as introduce them to technology. So whether learner, teacher or business person, I love teaching/tutoring you!
