Hello everybody and welcome to Skyeng. My name is Timothy, but you can call me Tim. I am an actor, an E.S.L. teacher and an entrepreneur. As an actor it will be my pleasure to help you speak in whichever accent you prefer.

I currently live in a small seaside village called Kommetjie near Cape Town in South Africa, but I have lived in many places all over my homeland, in the U.K. and in Taiwan. Traveling is one of my great passions and a large part of it is the joy of meeting new people.

I studied at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, and graduated in 2008 majoring in Drama and Philosophy. In 2012 I was privileged to have won a brief but intensive apprenticeship at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon, in the U.K. There I studied Shakespearean text and performance.

Teaching language has always appealed to me because I also love learning new languages. I enjoy the sense of empowerment I feel when I am able to speak to foreigners or strangers in their own language. I feel that this ability is the quickest way to build interpersonal connections or to make new friends. As my country’s greatest leader, Nelson Mandela put it: If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his [own] language that goes to his heart.

I started teaching drama to high school and university students in 2006 while I was still studying. I have continued to teach drama, part time, through one of my businesses until now. For a short time between 2012 and 2014 I lived in Taiwan and taught English as a second language. So I have been a teacher for over 10 years and I taught English as a second language for nearly two years.

My principles regarding teaching English are based on the idea that the teacher will always also be a student. From the start of our work together I will be learning from you about how you’d prefer to be taught, at what speed you’d prefer to learn and how often you’d like me to make corrections as we speak together. For, in the end, the main point of our lessons will be about your comfort with the English language.

I spend as much of my free time with my wife and baby girl as I can. When I’m not with my family or at work I like to exercise. I run on our nearby beach at sunrise and sunset and I train in martial arts every other night. As an actor I love the performing arts and literature. I enjoy watching theatre and films and I am always thrilled to find a good book to read. As an entrepreneur I try to read as many books on business and self-empowerment as I can, but I find it easier and more fulfilling reading a good fiction novel.

I am excited about the prospect of working with you and helping you towards realizing your dreams of speaking and reading English with ease and comfort.
