Presentation

Online English tutor that specialises in learning in a natural and fun way.

Good day My name is Ruan Combrink, and I live in Centurion, South Africa. As well as being an Instructional Designer for online learning management systems, I am also an Afrikaans and English Tutor. I have been a language tutor since the start of 2021 and I completed my 420-hour level 5 TEFL Diploma in early 2022. Two of my biggest passions in life are interacting with people from different origins and walks of life, and helping students learn & grow. I have found through experience, that people learn more effectively when they are actively engaged in creative activities, which ensures that learning comes naturally. To do this, I incorporate game-like activities into my lessons that are customised to suit the individual learner's needs and wants. To ensure that I target the student’s need...

Good day My name is Ruan Combrink, and I live in Centurion, South Africa. As well as being an Instructional Designer for online learning management systems, I am also an Afrikaans and English Tutor. I have been a language tutor since the start of 2021 and I completed my 420-hour level 5 TEFL Diploma in early 2022. Two of my biggest passions in life are interacting with people from different origins and walks of life, and helping students learn & grow. I have found through experience, that people learn more effectively when they are actively engaged in creative activities, which ensures that learning comes naturally. To do this, I incorporate game-like activities into my lessons that are customised to suit the individual learner's needs and wants. To ensure that I target the student’s needs, I have a thorough conversation with each of my students, to find out exactly what their aims, goals, hobbies, likes and dislikes are so that I can tailor all of the content and activities to be truly centred around that student and their individual wants, needs and learning styles. I am a very welcoming and friendly tutor that is open to any questions and I encourage my students to rather try and fail than not trying at all. Mistakes are what the students learn from the most in the end. So if you are eager to improve your English or you feel that your child will benefit from extra tutoring, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Ruan is a very good and patient tutor. He focuses more on understanding the work so the student can be equipped with the correct tools. My child has build up her marks from the 60s and now she's in the 90s...

Mr Ruan Combrink has been very instrumental in our son’s academic life during the year 2021. Our son has been struggling with understanding Afrikaans as a spoken and written language and this disadvantaged him in a way that was starting to also frustrate him. Ruan’s style of teaching not only improved his symbols but also gave him communication confidence with his peers. Ruan has an impressive work ethic that goes without saying. He is punctual and attentive to detail. He goes the extra mile by drafting speeches after hours that we forgot to communicate to him during the day! It was a great pleasure to have him assisting us during the time that we did not know where else to run to. I would recommend his services to anyone who would like to have a professional, well skilled person tutoring his/her off springs. Kind regards Momo Makai

Ruan es un gran profesor. Tiene mucha paciencia y habla muy amable. Prepara muy bien las clases y siempre tiene material para aprender y practicar. Además si le escribes para preguntar cualquier duda, él te responde muy rápido. Lo recomiendo mucho porque estoy aprendiendo con él mucho mejor que en cualquier academia que haya estado,

Muy buen profesor y tiene mucho interés. Muy agradable y preocupado en la formación de sus alumnos. Me envía tareas para practicar. Hacemos mucho speaking con lo que me sirve para practicar el vocabulario y entender mejor.
