Iolanthe P - Tutor in Paulshof

I was born and grew up on a wheat farm in the Western Cape. I was at boarding school in Cape Town and did my B.A. at Stellenbosch University majoring in English and French. I then spent 4 years in the Netherlands working in Amsterdam and The Hague. On my return to South Africa, did an extra major at Wits, got married, had 2 children. After my divorce, I studied again obtaining my teaching diploma and honours degree in educational psychology. I have worked locally as a teacher and, since I qualified in 1997, as a remedial therapist in part time private practice. In South Africa I have worked with students from other countries in Africa and the Middle East. I have also taught English as a foreign language (TEFL) for 7 years in Taipei, Taiwan to scholars, students and business people. Since my return to South Africa in 2009 I have worked at schools and privately in educational support which not only includes homework and school work but general and specific study skills and improving students’ learning confidence and organizational abilities. Generally one may say that I ‘mentor’ – especially students from Grade 3 to Grade 7 with the aim of getting them ready and confident enough to deal with High School and life thereafter!I
