Inge-Louise D - Tutor in Port Elizabeth Central

I have been working in private higher education for 7 years now and have been studying non stop since I left high school. So it is safe to say that I have a passion for education. At this point I have qualifications in Psychology, Research, Proofreading/copy editing and a TEFL with a Business English booster. One of my favourite things is to teach students how language use can differ from one context to another and how important the correct vernacular is for individual contexts. Your language use, both written and spoken, has such an impact on your personal brand, and knowing how to use this to your advantage is essential.

I also ran the Academic Writing programme at the institution I work at for the last 7 years.
