My name is Jean Pretorius. I am a 25-year-old male from the United States although, I haven’t been living in the US for quite a while now. I found out I was an enthusiastic traveler a few years after graduating university. I had decided to take my first trip abroad with no intentions of returning home. I had been told by a friend about the opportunity Asia had presented native speaking English people to become teachers.
After landing in Asia and attending a very intensive 140hour TEFL course at a very reputable teacher training facility in Thailand, they also provided me with a job. I have never looked back since then. As time passed I made the transition from being a classroom teacher to becoming an online teacher and eventually completely switched to online teaching as it provided me with more freedom to pursue my biggest passion which is traveling. Ever since I fully transitioned to online teaching I was able to assist my students much better by giving them more 1-on-1 time. I have taught over 5000 lessons to kids and adults of ages from 6 – 50+ providing with great understanding and experience when it comes to teaching English as a second language.
I hope to see you in class so we can work together in achieving your language goals.
