Hello, my name is Hannie du Plessis. Nice to meet you! I have a diploma in photography, and a TEFL certificate and currently I am a second-year BA arts student with two majors, one in psychology and the other in English. Both the process of self-growth and being an educator are inherent qualities for me. I want to share my values for self-improvement, honesty, the desire to achieve greatness, and my love for learning about different cultures through teaching English. I started my teaching career as an assistant photography lecturer in 2004. In 2014, I sold all my belongings and moved to Thailand. I received a TEFL certificate at Samui TEFL in March 2014. I have eight years of experience as a TEFL teacher. I have lived and worked in many different parts of the world including the United Kingdom, Thailand, America, and India. My hobbies include hiking, Forest bathing, photography, traveling (road trips) Pilates, and connecting with people through learning.
What students have taught me about myself; I help to make the process of learning fun and enjoyable, while breaking through complicated topics. I also try to help my students recognise their potential and fulfil it. My accent is very neutral with clear speech which makes it easy for students to understand me. I am extremely patient and kind and have a broad general knowledge. My favourite notification is “ you cheered him/her up”
I look forward to meeting you in the classroom.
