Work Experience

Position


Job title: Academic Mentor
Employer: Nerina residence, Stellenbosch University
Date of employment: 2019-2020
Summary of role:

I have served as academic mentor since high school. At university, I mentored my fellow students and mentees at my residence in English, French, psychology and law modules.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

The best way to learn a language, is by immersion. Since many students are unable to go to an English speaking country to do so, it is the role of the foreign teacher to bring their insight and experience to the students.

Furthermore, I would love to learn more about the South Korean culture and language, and it would be a great honour to learn through first-hand experience.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I took up French as a foreign language elective during the first year of my law degree. I loved the entire immersion process and ended up majoring in it! I learned a great deal about French culture, since we had many communication lecturers from different francophonic countries.
Being a student, trying to grapple with a foreign language myself, taught me many tips and tricks to become empowered in a different language. It also showed me that every person acquires language in a different way.
I would love to be able to help students become confident in speaking and engaging in English; to experience those “ah-ha” moments, when something finally clicks and it starts to become fun to learn the language. I want to help them build up a solid foundation and guide them as much as I can.
