Hello, my name is Stephen.
I am a native speaking ESL teacher.
My top priority is to help you develop both confidence and competence when communicating in
English. I teach only 30 minute lessons.
In my classes I do my best to make students feel welcome, safe and relaxed. The best learning takes place when students feel comfortable enough to make mistakes. I welcome your mistakes; each one is a stepping stone that we can use to move forward. I will help guide you forward one step at a time using any mistakes as opportunities to grow.
Every master was once a beginner and the willingness to try is the beginning of greatness. People make mistakes but together we will learn from them quickly, finding our way to functional mastery.
Once you are comfortable, the lessons will focus on using language as a tool to help you
communicate your thoughts and feelings. When you can communicate and understand, we can
engage effectively and make powerful things happen!
Developing the ability to express and understand thoughts and feelings is key. Together we will
progress towards a future full of new possibilities through the power of English and communication!
I’m comfortable teaching anyone from children to fortune 500 CEO’s.
I have international business experience including staff management and training.
I’m passionate about both learning and teaching.
During my 3 years living in South East Asia, I fell in love with Vietnamese culture.
In addition to teaching English, I’ve been a professional coach for 14 years.
I have over 20 years martial arts training experience and enjoy studying philosophy and psychology in my spare time.
I welcome you to set up a session with me; there’s a good chance we’ll be a good match. I look
forward to hearing from you!
Best wishes and warm regards
Stephen du Preez
