MY STORY

Hi. I’m Susan. And first of all, I'm a wife, mom and grandmother.


But, for the past 23 years, I’ve also been a daycare provider and mostly taught Xhosa and Afrikaans speaking children to communicate, understand and function effectively in English.

During these years, I’ve also helped their parents become confident in English so that they could either support their children at home or get better jobs, or even emigrate to the UK.


Becoming an internationally qualified Online English Teacher was the next logical step for me.

Yes … I decided to become an EFL teacher so that I could teach students all over the world to improve their lives by learning English.


Teaching is a vocation. It comes from the heart. And this is my professional goal : to help others be happy and content with their lives.


My motto is: "There is a consequence for EVERY decision you make, and you have to be willing to deal with it."


Apart from my husband, children and grandson, my next biggest passion is helping others acquire new skills so that they can have a better life.
