My name is Melissa, and I come from South Africa. I have been teaching for 5 years now, and my lessons are never the same. I have an American bachelors degree in primary education as well as my TEFL from a British institution. I have been teaching in China for the past three years, before that I was teaching in my own country. Luckily, because we have the internet it has also been possible to teach online to other parts of the world. I enjoy many things and want to make the most of what I have.

HI guys, it's a pleasure to meet you. I love many things and love exploring. I like to learn about new cultures and different types of food from the world. I also enjoy the arts, such as painting, sketching, playing the piano and many outdoor activities. I love to explore the unknown and making friends. I like to exchange different view points. Even though teaching may seem very boring to many people, I see it as an adventure, when we teach both the student and the teacher learns, we all have something to give. I do love traveling, but I also love what I do and hope that I can help you.
Me as a teacher
As a teacher I am very patient and understanding. I try to push my students through encouragement. I change my teaching style according to my students. I respect my students and their views. I have a fun personality in my lessons and try to build the confidence of all my students.
Lesson and Teaching Styles
Both my lessons and teaching styles will be very different. Because everyone is different and learns in different ways, I try to change my methods accordingly. It consists of assessing the student, their knowledge, their capabilities and their goals. From there the lessons will change levels according to the students progress. I set the pace of learning to what I believe the student would be most comfortable with.
With your heart in mind, The message ye shall find. From day until night, We shall see a new light. Rather than being scared, Be aware for when true love comes, Faith shall be there. (This is a poem that I wrote myself)
I have never turned a student down or berated them. As a teacher it is my responsibility to commit myself to my students educational progress and their overall well being. I will always give my full attention to my students and will guide them to the best of my abilities. My students are an extension of my family and will always treat them with respect.
My teaching materials will vary according to levels. As many websites where teachers share thoughts and ideas, most materials will come from the internet but the lesson plan will be my own.

My latest experience was with Yingjiang Yi Zhong High school, from 2018 to 2020 I have been there for two years as as English teacher. The classes were mainly focused around the students understanding of the English language, it also focused on their reading practices and writing skills. (During my free time I have also done freelance writhing and online lessons on various platforms on the internet) From 2017 to beginning of 2018 I worked at WEB International.
