Bio

I am an Afrikaans tutor with a passion for languages. I teach my students with patience as I realise how difficult it is to learn a new language. I ensure that my lessons are fun and exciting.

I use props and make each lesson exciting and age appropriate. I am patient and ensure that my students feel at ease in my classroom.

Education

• English and Afrikaans studies through UNISA. Passed with distinctions

My Proudest

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

Afrikaans

Grade 1 - Grade 12 IEB

As an Afrikaans native speaker, I want to motivate and inspire you to learn Afrikaans to the best of your ability. Together, we will explore the grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation of Afrikaans, making sure that you have a solid foundation to build upon.

  • Language Tutoring

TEFL

Beginner - Advanced

I obtained my TEFL qualification to help students to broaden their opportunities through learning English. I feel through teaching English to foreign learners will make a difference in their lives as learning a new language opens up new windows to the world around them.

Afrikaans

Beginner - Advanced

I have a passion for teaching Afrikaans as it is my home language and Afrikaans is a beautiful language. To me, Afrikaans is the easiest to learn as there are not many frustrating differences. It is important to keep lessons lively and engaging as I love what I do.

English

Beginner - Advanced

Teaching English as an advanced language has no limits and there is always room for improvement and as a language teacher, I strive towards that. Teaching tools such as debates, real live materials, idioms, sayings and slang, poetry, and comedy will keep my lessons lively and engaging.

  • University Tutoring

Afrikaans

First Year

I have always excelled in Afrikaans. I pride myself in understanding the technical aspects of the subject as well as the beauty of it. I wish to help others understand it better.

“As a parent i am always awed by Ericka's dedication and patience to my child and i keep telling my daughter that i wish i had found Ericka while she was still in grade 10. But by God's grace I am grateful that i found her when i needed her the most and she has exceeded my expectations on a tutor. To have someone who cares for your child as though they were their own child is amazing. Thank you Ericka, for all that you have done for my daughter, how you have increased her confidence in herself and for believing in her. You are awesome!!!”
