I will take you through a personalized tutoring program, that matches your skill. Additionally, we can also tailor the lessons to include one, or a diverse set of topics that may be of interest to you. They may range from technology to business, farming, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, to the existence of the universe, and even dark energy and consciousness.

However, I am particularly good with vocabulary, structured focussed writing skills (for emails) and preparing you for job interviews and even job applications, and how best to present yourself.

For 16 years I have run multiple businesses and board meetings as General Manager and CEO and have over the years written multiple business plans and generated tons of financial and management reports.

We will cover reading/speaking/listening and I will give you assignments to help you improve your end score.
I am very good at helping with structured, focused writing that is to the point and will help you with email writing.
Eight years of science, research, and publishing gives me the ability to teach complex language and vocabulary in multiple subjects, ranging from philosophy of mind, the universe, reality of all existence, dark energy and gravity, organic agriculture, technology in agriculture, internet of things, artificial intelligence, machine learning, sustainability in business, business English (see above), psychology, consciousness, and subjective & objective awareness. The student may request to go deeper into any of these topics to gain confidence in scientific and subject-matter orientated speech style and have a better hand over more complex vocabulary.
Our native South African accent is in its best form a very British accent. My teaching style is to bring you closer to British English, not American English.
