My name is Khanyisa Mnyaka and I'm from South Africa. I have been teaching English as a second language for the past 3 year in South Korea and Malaysia. I have taught elemantary, middle school, college and adults. I have a TEOFL certicate and can teach both grammar and literature. I currently live in South Korea teaching elementary school. I have a passion for teaching and I am very easy to work with. I can work with students of any age and I have the ability to adapt easily. I have been fortunate to work with students of different cultures in my teaching carreer and that has helped me understand people and embrace them. When teaching in Malaysia, I was given the opportunity to familiarise myself with students from the Arab world, that opportunity has helped me learn about their culture. I was also presented with the opportunity to fully immense myself within the South East Asian countries and work with students from that region. And working in Korea has given me an understanding of the Asian world and I have been able to fully participate in their culture. These experiences , coupled with my bachelors degree in Psychology make me a well rounded teacher, with the ability to treat students in respect of their cultures and back grounds.
The reason I'm applying with buddy school is that I want to continue learning about people of the world! I strongly believe that I am a global citizen and the possibility of helping students online is one that appeals to me greatly.
