Native English speaker. Honor's degree in Applied Psychology, Human Sciences. In Pretoria, South Africa. Inquisitive. Multilingual.

Methodology

My teaching style is one that remains consistent, however very considerate to the group that I am dealing with at that particular session. It's incorporating elements of fun in the classroom - in delivery and outlook. I aim to allow the student to grasp the information and content easily by associating it with fun and in ways that speak to their age group.

I seek to understand the student as an individual holistically.

I am expecting the student to challenge themselves in and outside the classroom. I'll apply the content to everyday life + their work experience. Lessons will be delivered with discipline, intense focus on the content + fun - to not take away the human experience of it. :)

Background

I am an inquisitive intellect, who seeks to change the world a student at a time. English is one of the subjects I am most passionate about, followed by Life Sciences, which I teach too. I grew up in a multilingual family, therefore I am very open-minded and accepting of those different from myself. Studying under Human Sciences - General Psychology (Post-graduate Degree) has taught me a ton about the variety that exists within the walls of our societies concerning cultural perspectives, experiences, and stances on life in general. MY SPECIALITIES = Academic assistance, working with children - 5.5 years experience. I taught English and Biology at a pre-primary school and university students.

Miss Phila :)'s Resume

Work Experience
2016 - 2019
Tutor, teacher. University of KwaZulu Natal
University of KwaZulu Natal - Durban, ZA
I am very familiar with the use of online learning systems like Zoom and Skype. I have taught students at a university level, and I would attend to their queries and tutorials - online. I am very open-minded, and patient - which are the qualities that assist me to allow myself to relate to my students if/when I am able to. Teaching different age groups, ethnicities and cultures has given me the gift of seeing the world for its variety and embracing and learning from it.

2020 - 2020
Tutor/substitute teacher Dianthus Primary School
Dianthus Primary School - Durban, ZA
I was employed as a substitute teacher for grades 6 + 7. I taught Primary Biology, Zulu + English. It was a journey that forced me to explore the love I have for kids + their fragile minds. This was after my Honour's degree (post-graduate) year - therefore one could argue that I was well equipped for the position, the knowledge from my research papers, + a proposal = inclusive of human behavior to a level that granted me a great deal of depth concerning the subject. My major is NEUROPSYCHOLOGY.

2020 - 2021
Tutor PREPLY
PREPLY - Durban, ZA
I have been freshly employed on this platform, and I believe it is one that is (continues) to groom me with intellectual ways, ones that will shape me into becoming the best version of an online tutor. They use different communication tools, therefore sharpening my knowledge on such a vital part of the online teaching experiences. This has made me more open-minded and objective in nature. It comes with the growth factor and allows me to challenge myself cerebrally.

2020 - 2021
Tutor CHEGG
CHEGG - Capetown, ZA
This is another ESL company that I am greatly indebted to. They taught me skills that are deemed of empirical importance in this work platform. It is an online tutoring company, therefore - they are where my online teaching journey can be said to have started.

Education
2014 - 2017
Bachelor's - Human Sciences, Psychology - University Of KwaZulu Natal
Certificates: TEFL - TEFL Professional Development Institute 2020

Miss Phila is an excellent teacher. She is organised and well prepared for lessons. She explains clearly and uses both verbal and written in order to clarify or teach a point. I really want to learn isiZulu and I have found the teacher who can get me there. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Miss Phila is naturally an intellectual, educated qualified English tutor.

Choose her if you want to take your language learning from:

Basic to Intermidiate.
Intermediate to Advanced.
Advanced to Excellent.

I am a product of her work since February 2021, she is first class in tutoring.

I guess my child had the 20th lesson with Miss Phila yesterday. He was happy and enjoyed the lesson again. He doesn't feel stressed. I can clearly recognize his progress in understanding English after four months.
