Marion P - Tutor in Randgate

I have always enjoyed teaching languages and am fully fluent in English, Afrikaans and German. I enjoy teaching all age groups ranging from Primary school, High school to College level. I am currently teaching English FAL at TVET College level, and have been doing so for the past 9 years. This includes all facets of learning the English language from communication skills regarding School and Business English, grammar and language, reading and writing skills and English literature. I enjoy preparing students to excel in their exams and to prepare them for future studies. I particularly enjoy the English language, as it is a universal language that equips students well in all aspects regarding their future. I am also fluent in both the German and Afrikaans language. I was raised in a German household and attended a German Primary School. Thereafter, I attended an English High School and then studied at an Afrikaans University. My studies included majors in Psychology and Sociology. My Post Graduate Certificate in Education included majors in Languages and Life Orientation. I enjoy working with students of all age groups and have also completed a Counselling diploma. Besides English FAL I have also taught Educational Psychology and Child Health at College level, to equip learners to open Day Care Centers and Pre-Schools. I would very much enjoy teaching languages on this platform and help students attain their goals.

Subjects taught
  • Psychology

    Psychology was one of my majors when I obtained my BA Degree. I have always enjoyed assessing the principles of human behavior. Psychology has also helped me as a teacher to ascertain students behavior, and to use assessments correctly to understand where students are in their learning. I find it fascinating to understand how people learn, interpret events and make decisions. As I work with young adults every day, I can encourage them to make good choices in their daily lives.

    I have been an English language lecturer for the past 9 years, teaching English FAL level 2 to level 4 at College level, which is equivalent to grade 10 - 12. I am well qualified in Education and my Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) includes a qualification in teaching languages. I have also obtained a TEFL International qualification which allows me to teach English to foreign language students. Teaching languages is a passion of mine.

  • English as a foreign Language

    I have completed the 120 hour TEFL International qualification. I believe that English is a language that is important to learn as it is the official language of most countries. It is widely spoken, helps when travelling, is the primary language for business. I have also taught Business English at School and College level for many years.

  • Grammar

    I understand that the knowledge of grammar in any language helps the student with the improvement of written work and the correction of mistakes. The understanding of grammar helps students to acquire good communication skills, reading and writing skills, especially in the English language. I believe that grammar teaching can be made more interesting by teaching in context ie. integrating grammar into other parts of the curriculum, such as creative writing or reading (grammar should not be a stand alone activity).

  • Reading

    I understand that learning to read and reading is about listening and understanding , as well as working out what is printed on the page. Reading is wonderful because through reading stories, children are exposed to a wide variety of words. I need to assess what interests students at a specific age to make reading fun and exciting.

  • Vocabulary

    I enjoy teaching vocabulary , as words are vital for communication. I believe that a wide variety of vocabulary will improve all areas of communication, and is therefore important for listening, speaking, reading and writing.
