My name is Alwyn, and I come from sunny South Africa however, I have been living in China for the past 6 years.
I enjoy hiking, composing music, watching a good movie or taking my two energetic dogs out for a walk.
I also enjoy learning new things and often find myself reading about topics such as physics and astronomy. I find those topics extremely interesting.
I'm easy to get along with, patient, kind and friendly. I'm considerate while teaching and understand that learning a new language is difficult.
I encourage my students to keep trying and to not feel ashamed when they make a mistake during our lessons. It's through those mistakes that I can help you improve your English, and it's through those mistakes that you become stronger.
My teaching experience
I have 6 years of experience teaching English as a second language and have helped many students reach their language goals. This includes classroom and online lessons.
Whether you want to learn English as a hobby, for an exam, a new job or because you're planning a trip abroad, I have a course that will suit your needs.
- Free Conversation Practice
- Traveling abroad
- Preparing for an interview
- Improving Business English
- Test Preparation
- Improve your Grammar
I offer extensive feedback after each class, which ensures you get as much information out of each lesson as possible.
I also offer (optionally) homework which you may complete in-between lessons to help cement the new language points we covered in our lessons.
Before all of this, I first get in touch with you to better understand your needs and goals and then, based on this information, I create a course specifically for you.
In other words, whether you're preparing for an interview for a job as a flight attendant, teacher, sales manager, or perhaps a CFO, my lessons and their content will be tailored to you and the specific job you're interviewing for.
My lesson Content
I mainly create PPT's for each lesson based on your specific needs, however, for my business English, grammar and vocabulary lessons I also make use of many different coursebooks specifically designed to cover these topics.
Coursebooks allow us to work in an organized, well-structured manner by doing each lesson, each section as it was designed. It means we will not only cover speaking but also listening, reading and writing, therefore giving you a more complete, well-rounded result. So if that's what you're looking for, let me know and we can discuss which book we should use in our lessons.
If this description sounds like the type of teacher you're looking for, go ahead and book a lesson so we can meet and discuss the next steps in your English learning adventure.
There is no better time than the present. Take action today, and take the first step in becoming a more fluent English speaker.
I look forward to meeting you, and until then wish you all the best.
