🎙️ Self-Introduction: My name is Joanne Cooper, a 29 year old native English speaking teacher from the beautiful country of South Africa. I have five years of teaching experience and am extremely excited to start my TEFL journey!

Ever since the 5th grade, I knew that I wanted to go into teaching, as I was inspired by the way my teachers worked tirelessly to improve the lives of their students and give them the tools to be successful in life. I started my teaching journey in 2015 as a learner facilitator in a special needs school, and from there, went on to work for a public primary school as a learner facilitator and classroom assistant, and have gone on to work for a private remedial school that specialises in teaching learners with various barriers to learning.

I have taught learners from the ages of five to fourteen, and have experiences with both one-on-one, classroom and online teaching. I am currently working on my bachelor’s degree in education and love the experience of getting to bond and interact with my learners.

💬 Teaching Style:

Through my work and university experience, I have learnt a variety of different teaching methodologies, skills and practical knowledge, such as classroom management and lesson planning. I have been told by my coworkers and students that I am kind, patient, hard-working and flexible in my teaching techniques, changing the way I present materials to suit the needs of each student under my care, according to their individual needs.

I am interested in TEFL as I am looking to broaden my teaching experience and get to know and exchange language and culture with learners from all over the world. I am always looking for a way to learn along with my students and make it a fun and enjoyable experience for both parties.
