IMPORTANT NOTICE!!

As I am very busy these days, I only add bookable slots to my schedule on a daily basis. As a result, and I apologize for this, new slots that you can book may appear the day before, and thus not giving you much time to book them.

I hope you understand.

Thank you!

ABOUT ME

I have been a professional teacher now for nearly 9 years, which include in-classroom and online teaching.

I currently live in China with my wife, although originally I come from Cape Town, South Africa.

TEACHING

I have both classroom and online experience (MANY years), and would like to think that I'm a kind and friendly teacher while at the same time taking care to ensure my students improve and get better. So while our lessons may have a casual atmosphere, I do take teaching seriously and will try my best to point out what you're doing wrong and how you can improve.
