Kia ora e te whānau SWIS,
Nō Āwherika ki te Tonga ahau. Ko Poneke tōku kāinga hou. Ko Rodda tōku ingoa whanau. Ko Peter / Pieter / UPeter / Pedro / 베드로 / 彼德 ōku ingoa.I’ve been teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL/ESL) since 2012 in South Africa, Korea, Colombia, China and New Zealand – to students from pre-primary to university level – and have a passion for languages. I decided to focus on Primary teaching so that I could be involved in more aspects of education and wellbeing for our tamariki and future leaders.
I am proudly South African and really appreciate the privilege of growing up in such a beautiful and culturally diverse country. I’m also a new father of 6 month old Grant, and my wife Lizani works at Wellington Hospital. We enjoy the mountains and the outdoors, trail running around Wellington’s hills in the evenings, and heading out tramping, camping, or climbing on the weekends. And of course, I’ll take any excuse to have a braai (South African BBQ)!
