Hello I am Teacher Tessa from the beautiful country which holds one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Zimbabwe. I am a fun, friendly, cheerful and loving person which makes it easy for people to be comfortable around me. I love seeing progress and being a part of someone’s success and improvement. My hobbies and passions are: travelling, baking, reading novels, watching TV shows on Netflix and of course teaching!
Qualifications and Experience
in relation to teaching English, I have a TESOL Certificate from International Open Academy. I also have a Private Secretarial Diploma from LCCI( London Chambers in Commerce and Industry), a Bookkeeping and Accounting Certificate from City & Guilds, London and I am currently studying towards a Bachelor in Commerce (Business Management) degree.
I have six months experience in teaching English as a second language online to kids ranging from 5 up to 12 years of age and also adults with the use of textbooks focusing on speech, grammar, pronunciation and also some free conversation on various topics of interest. I have a great passion and love for teaching because it brings me a lot of fulfillment being a part of my student’s journey and helping them to reach their goals, this is such a beautiful and rewarding feeling!
My teaching style
“A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination and instill a love of learning”. My lessons are relaxed, fun yet productive because I believe each and every lesson should be one my student looks forward to so my approach is one that brings the synchronization of learning and enjoyment. I tailor each lesson according to the student’s need and this ensures the student meets his/her goal. I am patient and I understand mistakes are part of how we learn and without them it is impossible to learn or perfect knowledge of the language.
