I prepare lessons for each student individually based on their specific needs for each language. For example: if you language need is Business English, I prepare your lesson on what you need to do your work. If your language need is to practice your speaking skills, your lesson will be based on themes that you are interested in. If your language need is to learn English from scratch, we will discuss a program to get you started from the beginning to when you can speak English with confidence.
My tutoring also focusses on the development of my students. Through my classes, I aim to stimulate creativity, analytical skills, improve business skills, understanding of different cultures, problem-solving, communication skills, enhance my student's opportunities in worldwide jobs and to expand their worlds globally. Lessons are individually prepared for each student to learn grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, pronunciation and reading.
More about me:
I have been in tutoring and training for 15 years and I follow a communicative approach with interesting themes and discussions that draw on your life experiences and everyday situations.
I was born in South Africa and live close to Cape Town. I speak both Afrikaans and English as native languages. I studied Human Resources and specialized in training. In 2015 I added a TEFL/TESOL certificate to my qualifications. I was given a traditional African name by a student group in South Africa and they named me Noluthandu which means “a person who likes people.” This was a great honor for me. I am very much excited to walk the exiting path with you while learning a new language. Remember, it takes small steps to reach the top of the mountain of success.

English or Afrikaans classes - private (1-3 students)
I teach: Afrikaans, English
I am an Industrial and Automotive designer from Cape Town, South Africa. I have many interests of which languages are only one! I speak 3... languages, I know exactly how you feel when learning a second (or third) language! I've always loved different languages and fascinated by how a language links to culture and history. My mom, who is an Afrikaans teacher, probably has a lot to do with that.. I received my TEFL qualifications in 2012 but have had the opportunity to teach even before. I can help you improve your pronunciation and sentence building, allowing you to express yourself easily in any conversation. I have experience teaching in class and online, grammar and conversational classes to teenagers and adults, levels beginner to intermediate. The focus is always on clear communication and building student confidence! During my studies at university (in Barcelona) I also helped my classmates improve and prepare for presentations. I have a fun and enthusiastic teacher personality! Get in touch if you would like to improve your English skills in a positive and motivated environment. I look forward to helping you reach your language goals, whether it's conversational or simply travel essentials. You can also contact me if you want to learn Afrikaans and practice conversations.
