To all my wonderful students!
From next week onwards (7 November 2022) I will be taking a bit of a break from tutoring in order to welcome a new addition to our family!
I don’t have an exact date on when I will be back, but please keep an eye out on my profile for any updates.
If you have any questions or feel like a chat, you are welcome to pop me a message on my profile or via Direct Messages.
Thank you to every student for your kind words of motivation, wishes and thoughts. I’m definitely going to miss our chats and look forward to catching up soon!
Hello! Goeie dag! Mholweni! Sawubona! Lumela! Dumêlang!
My name is Cheree and I come from a beautiful country known for its gorgeous scenery, amazing animals, 11 official languages and wonderful people. Any idea which country that might be? Here is a clue…
I am from South Africa!
I have been teaching English as a second language for nine years, both in-person and online. After teaching in South Africa for four years, I decided to pack my bags, head off to the UAE, and take on a new challenge! My four years spent in the UAE were filled with many wonderful experiences, various cultures, and many different languages.
The UAE also gave me the opportunity to do a bit of traveling and I visited many countries including Tanzania, Thailand, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, USA, Iceland, Germany, France, Turkey, the Netherlands, Sri Lanka, Qatar, Italy and many more!
Two years ago, I made the big move to Germany, and I now live in Ludwigshafen am Rhein where I teach English online and create helpful classroom resources for teachers. I am also currently a student taking German lessons with Chatterbug!
Here are 10 fun facts about me:
My biggest (irrational) fear is a pipe!
My favorite thing about being a teacher is seeing students succeed and the confidence they gain.
I speak English, Afrikaans, and German.
When I was younger, I wanted to be a cashier because the buttons on the register looked like a whole lot of fun!
I have a giant sweet tooth and love afternoon tea!
My favorite movie is Father of the Bride.
I am a huge Disney fan and have visited the parks multiple times.
My favorite time of year is Christmas.
The strangest thing I’ve ever eaten was rotten shark meat: an Icelandic delicacy.
My hobbies include Irish dancing, gardening, crocheting and anything artsy.
When learning a new language, take it slow, break it down, practise, and never forget to breathe!
