Introduction:

I like my students to have fun while learning...

& let me tell you a few other things about myself.

My name is Jezanne, but you can call me Jez. I live in South Africa, in the capital city. I have over 13 years teaching experience and I love swimming!

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

I don't like to interrupt students. I always take notes while talking to students and then after the lesson I send detailed feedback with corrections regarding grammar or suggestions/recommendations in connection with expressions that are naturally spoken in everyday English.

Test Prep › IELTS

I completed an online IELTS training course. I did this 60 hour course through i-to-i online. I have extensive lessons covering all four parts of the test, the different question types and the skills needed to achieve the band score you that you want.
