I like my students to have fun while learning.

My name is Jezanne, but you can call me Jez. I live in South Africa, in the capital city. I have 16 years teaching experience and I love walking and swimming!

For those of you who wonder about it, South African English comes from Britain, because our country was at one time a British colony. For this reason we were taught British grammar, pronunciation and writing in schools. So we speak British English, but with a little American influence here and there. My mother's family are originally from England and my father's family descended from the Dutch who live in The Netherlands (often also called Holland).

I have taught students from Brazil, Peru, Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Taiwan, China, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Mozambique, Central African Republic, the DRC, the Philippines, Poland, Angola, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Eritrea, Sudan, Syria, Jordan, Belarus, France, Mexico, Chile, South Korea and of course Japan. It's awesome to do this job!

I look forward to meeting you on-line!

Teaching Specialty:

Business Skills & Knowledge › Case Study

Case studies with advanced students are surely one of my favorite lessons to have! It's wonderful to hear students articulate their thoughts clearly on deeper business matters.

Topics › Discussion

Lately my students love coming to class and then together we choose a random topic to talk about. They feel that coming to class without preparing beforehand really tests the boundaries of their English abilities. Therefore they enjoy the classes even more. Of course if you prefer to prepare in advance we can choose a topic together before our next session.

Everyday English › Free Conversation

Regarding feedback, I will first find out your preference. So, if you want to talk freely during the session, I will take notes and then I will send detailed feedback for you to review your session in your own time. Or, you can choose immediate correction while we are talking.
