Danielle d - Tutor in Randhart

Hello! My name is Danielle. I recently completed my Education degree at the University of Pretoria. I have about a year and a bit of experience working inside the classroom and online. When I teach, I like to make the lessons fun and interactive because I believe that’s the best way to learn! I try and go beyond what is expected of a teacher. I like to adapt my skills to suit your learning style because I know we all don’t learn the same way.

120 Hour Certificate - learnTEFL

Subjects taught
  • TEFL

    I believe I’m the best tutor for this position because I’ve done a TEFL course as well as gotten experience teaching English online. I’ve learnt that it’s best have a variety of lessons based on the same concept rather than one big lesson because I know it’s daunting trying to learn a completely different language and one topic gets thrown to you and you’re expected to understand all of it in one go.

  • Primary School

    Foundation Phase (grades R-3). I believe I’m the best tutor for this position because I’ve studied for 4 years with practical teaching on how to teach these ages. I have learnt from other teachers and seen for myself what works and doesn’t work. I like to make my lessons fun and exciting where you sometimes don’t even realise that you’re learning.

  • Grammar

    I believe I’m the best tutor for this position because I’ve studied how to teach you grammar. I know some of the tried and tested methods that usually work for all learners and which ones don’t work. I try make it fun and interactive so that you will be able to grasp the concept that you need to know.

  • Reading

    I believe I’m the best tutor for this position because I’ve studied how to teach reading. I know how to correct mistakes and what will allow you to remember the word/s in the future when you see it somewhere else. I get involved in reading by having different voices, by acting out the scenes, by having puppets tell the story and I can adapt those skills to what you as my learner might want from me.
