Samantha – Centurion Area – 072 149 9254
Samantha started the Active English Franchise in Centurion 13 years ago and her reputation as a dedicated and amazing teacher is well-known in the Centurion area where teachers, Lisa and Carla assist her.
They collectively teach at Sprokieland, Bundibos, Nebulae Montessori, Regio, Wierda Babasentrum, Bambi, Japsnoetjies, Centurion Babasorgsentrum, Ietsie Pienkz Ietsie Groenz and Wierie Woekerland.
Classes for grades take place at Rooihuiskraal Laerskool, Wierdapark Laerskool, Bakenkop Laerskool and Hennopspark Laerskool.
Valhalla Primary and Uitsig Primary have recently been added to this list. There is also a pre-school class at a venue "The Worx" in Saxby Avenue.
Sam has an absolute passion for teaching English, the children thoroughly enjoy their lessons and are very responsive.
Sam confirms that they are always excited to see what they are "going to make". The rate at which pre-schoolers learn always amazes me, our youngest learners are 3 years of age and after 6 months of attendance they respond to instructions and participate in the lessons.
Most of the grades she teaches started as pre-schoolers which is an indication that parents are satisfied and recognise the value of the lessons.
She recently received a letter from a student who achieved a distinction for English in Matric last year, she participated in the lessons in her primary school years and her mother wrote that the value of the lessons definitely attributed to her success.
Lisa – 084 607 3978
Lisa is one of Sam's teachers and says that when parents tell her how much their children enjoy and look forward to their lessons she feels a tremendous sense of pride because that is one of the greatest compliments one can receive. She adds that children do not 'filter' or wear masks,
their opinions and observations are honest.
Carla has been teaching part-time for Sam for 4 years – "the Active English programme encourages children to be creative and they can express themselves in a manner that they are comfortable with."
Carla enjoys watching them learn, grow and develop into confident English speakers.
