Hello, My name is Bernadette, however — you may call me Teacher B.
I have been working in the field of education since 2010, where I started off teaching art to children in the small town of Knysna, South Africa. When I have free time, I love painting, writing poetry, playing the guitar and of course, spending time outdoors — mostly at the ocean which is nearby my home.
In 2011, I started teaching EFL students in both group and private lessons. I have worked with students from all across the globe.
I am passionate about teaching adults and children. I have taught General, Business and Exam English students. I have had the opportunity to prepare students ahead of the following exams: CAE, IELTS, TOEFL and TOEIC alongside of working with Business and General English students. I tailor — make all lessons depending on level and students’ needs.
I use a variety of methods, though find the communicative approach alongside of the PPP method most successful and suitable. I design my lessons in power point, use audio clips, short films and text books so you find it easy to follow and well organized. You will see that lessons place particular emphasis on vocabulary acquisition, fluency enhancement and listening. Grammar errors are corrected immediately and a concise explanation is always provided. I am here to support you in and outside of lesson time! Contact me so we can conduct a needs analysis and begin with our journey to fluency.
