Candice S - Tutor in Lambton

I began teaching English before I even got my B.Ed. When I was in High School with 2 years left to graduate, a student transferred in from Taiwan. She could not speak a word of English and was due to graduate at the same time as me. I am proud to say, that with her dedication as well as my own, she was able to graduate in the same time as a First Language English speaker. We are still good friends today! I knew then that Education was my calling! No matter your age, your interests or your background, I believe we can learn a lot from each other. I always make it a goal to teach from a point of what interests you as the student.

Bachelor of Education - WITS university

I studied for 4 years to get my bachelors degree. At the same time, I was working as a student teacher at different schools. This gave me an opportunity to really understand different types of learning and how to reach students with all kinds of different backgrounds.

TEFL trained - i-to- i

To add to my years of teaching, I have done additional TEFL training to help me reach more students in an effective way.

Subjects taught
  • Vocabulary

    In a nut shell, experience. Vocabulary is the foundation of English. I have had the privilege of teaching English to many age groups and I know that when students feel comfortable with vocabulary, they are more likely to excel and do well in other areas of English.

    Candice teaches Vocabulary at High School, Primary School, and Adult level(s)
