About GHS

Our Teachers

I used to teach in a primary school. I absolutely love my job and enjoy meeting students from all over the world. I spent 3 years in Vancouver. I am passionate about South Africa and especially love watching rugby and cricket. I have two adult children.

Preparing students for an exam, discussing South African topics or taking the class to practise their English skills on a wine farm in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, makes my job very rewarding!

Having been bitten by the travel bug shortly after birth, I've made it my life's mission to find a cure. I have found temporary relief in India, Guatemala, Italy, Egypt, Argentina and a few other places.

I have been in the EFL industry for around twenty years. I’ve taught at most of the established schools in Cape Town, been involved in running CELTA courses and been in management, but the undoubted highlight so far, was teaching in London for two years.

Working at Good Hope Studies has given me the opportunity to not only let my inner nerd prosper, but also to have an audience for my extremely lame jokes. When not at school, you can find me on my beanbag busy reading, drinking or doing something bizarre.

We tend to have fun in class, even exam classes! It's rewarding to see students making significant progress, wonderful to see friendships developing and to hear about their adventures. It's true, I love what I do!

A love of languages and exploring new cultures has been the driving force in choosing my profession. I find it a privilege to not only be able to teach my own language but also to learn from my students.

I have been in the ESL/TEFL field for over twenty years. Oftentimes I feel I receive as much as I give in my classroom; not only in terms of a cultural exchange, but also when sharing opinions on world events and the issues we face as global citizens.

I have always been passionate about teaching and taught for many years in Fashion Design before becoming an English teacher. What I enjoy the most about it is meeting new people from all over the world and learning about different cultures.

What was supposed to be a 2-week stay turned into me completing my CELTA qualification and becoming a teacher. This is the place to be. This job has allowed me to meet many amazing people and I get to witness them make so much progress during their stay.
