About Magda

My belief is that a good teacher or tutor is there to encourage a student to WANT to learn and to love what they are studying. Learning should be fun and rewarding. I believe that I am a good listener and although correcting mistakes when they occur, I redirect the student in a very positive way to the appropriate course of action and learning path.

The more confidence a student has in his/her ability to acquire certain knowledge or skill, the more easily they will be willing to learn and the more readily they will be willing to make the required effort to become proficient.

It is therefore of great importance as a tutor, to inspire the student to believe in themselves and in his/her abilities.

Confidence building in a student is the basis of not only helping a student acquire the required knowledge but motivates him or her to lead a wholesome and productive life.

I believe I am such a tutor and motivator.

Teaching and tutoring has been part of my business life. On graduating as an architect at Natal University I became a tutor to first year architectural students in their presentation and drawing studios.

Later I joined Peachtree Toastmasters where I eventually became its president. Wonderful experience with mature students practiced speaking, evaluating and lecturing. I was with this group for about 15 years.

With the Buckhead Business Association I was chairperson of the Transportation Committee and later of the Area Planning Committee. This role included workshops and seminars with adults. Assignments were set and presented. The assignments were evaluated and critiqued.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Architecture

I have a Bachelors professional degree in architecture and a Masters Degree from GA TECH in Architecture. Have practiced architecture for about 20 years, for MCRB Development Inc as Zak Architects.

ESL/ESOL

This year I have completed a 160 hour TESOL course. Very intensive and stimulating. I am Certified to teach ESOL with a certificate from Global Leadership College. I have numerous lesson plans applicable to different age groups and learning sophistication. I will make learning fun and enjoyable !!

I have spent years learning and practicing Public Speaking. Spent 15 years in Toastmasters also did a long course with Speak Easy.
Have conducted seminars and workshops and have developed skills with good delivery and audience participation.
Main thing is to make sure you the speaker has a comfort level and help your audience to understand and enjoy your message.
