Bio

A keen student and a competent teacher. I truly enjoy studying and learning for its own sake, exchanging what I have learnt with others in a casual and interesting setting is fun, too!

I believe the fact that I have focused heavily on self-study in the last few years (for example with new languages), enables me to understand and appreciate the difficulty of learning something without much outside help. Thus, I believe thanks to my experience of teaching myself, I better understand the difficulties of learning, and might thus be better able to assist others in similar areas.

Education

• 2014-2016 BCom Supply Chain Management at TUKS
• 2015-2017 Worked as bursary holder at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics
• 2020-[present] Student of Germanic and Scandinavian Philology in Göttingen, Germany

My Proudest
Achievements

• Languages: I taught myself 3 new languages in 2 years
• Bursary holder: I have received bursaries on two occasions from different institutions and companies, which for me was a sign of the trust and confidence others have in me.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

Economics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I'm a top achiever in Economics, achieving distinctions throughout my studies.

Accounting

Grade 1 - Grade 12

Accounting formed an integral part of my studies during high school and university. I performed really well and have been tutoring Accounting for a while.

Afrikaans

Grade 1 - Grade 10

Afrikaans is my mother-tongue and favourite subject to tutor. Since university I've also been interested in theories about the origins and development of the language. To me, along with German, it is certainly one of the most fascinating languages!

English

Grade 1 - Grade 12

English was my favourite language subject in High-School, even though it is not my mother-tongue I thoroughly enjoy studying it. I've completed a BCom degree in English and I read a lot. I am confident tutoring it as a first or second language.

  • University Tutoring

Economics

First Year

Economics was one of my favourite subjects at University. I passed it with distinction and I can teach it very well.

Accounting

First Year

Accounting formed an integral part of my studies during school and university, one in which I am dually qualified to tutor University first-year students.

Business Management

First Year - Third Year

Business Management formed the core of my studies in University, analogue and inclusive in my degree was also Supply Chain Management (focus of my degree) and International Business Management.

Statistics

First Year

I enjoyed statistics at university, because of its relation to Economics, which were among my favourite subjects in first year.

Business Law

First Year - Second Year

Business Law was for me a surprisingly pleasent subject to have, one in which I even enjoyed going to extra tutoring classes because of the import of extra help in such a complicated field.

Financial Management

First Year - Second Year

This subject is closely tied to Accounting with perhaps a spice of Economics, fields of study in which I excelled and had I keen interest in whilst at university.

  • Language Tutoring

German

Beginner - Advanced

I started teaching myself German during the end of 2017. After 2 years of self-study plus 6 months of classes at the Goethe-Institute. I have acquired a C2 Certificate with an average of 77%. Germanic languages are a great interest of mine.

Afrikaans

Afrikaans is my mother-tongue and favourite subject to tutor. Since university I've also been interested in theories about the origins and development of the language. To me, along with German, it is certainly one of the most fascinating languages!

Conversational English

Beginner - Advanced

English is a language I have come to admire as I've become older and learned more about its origins. I find it an interesting language to study and also a pleasant one to tutor.

English

Beginner - Advanced

Since University I have focussed greatly on the Teutonic languages and their roots, English being one of them and heavily influenced by Dutch, German and Old-Frisian - all of which I understand.
