Bio

I am a hardworking, outgoing person that prioritises holistic living; everyone needs a good balance of work and fun. In my free time I enjoy exploring my city and creating long-lasting memories.

I have worked with many students for a very long time and as a student myself I have found that the only way you can truly help someone is when you understand them and this is something I practice everyday in my lessons. By really taking the time to get to know them I have been able to help them excel academically because academics do not work in isolation from everything else in your life.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I tutored my peers throughout high school and have continued to tutor learners since then. I have worked with numerous outreach projects tutoring Maths and completed a Maths and Stat courses at university. I am currently getting my teaching qualification to teach Maths in all schools across SA.

Accounting

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I have been tutoring this subject for years and it's definitely my favourite one to teach. There is often a gap between linking the content taught and the real world but once that gap has been closed then learners always excel. I am confident in my ability to help close that gap and excite students.

English

Grade 1 - Grade 12

English can be quite a complex language but with the necessary skills it can be mastered. I know that I can equip students with the skills they need to excel and achieve great results in English. I also completed my TEFL certification to assist with non-native speakers.

Life Sciences (Biology)

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I really enjoyed Life Science in high school. I am currently completing a PGCE which qualifies me to teach Life Sciences in all schools across SA. I have specialised in various fields in my undergrad that has equipped me with all the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively teach this subject.

Afrikaans

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I obtained a Distinction for Afrikaans in high school and grew up hearing the language spoken all around me. I am confident in my ability to transfer knowledge and equip students with the necessary skills to excel in this subject. I have experience teaching learners Afrikaans at beginner level.

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from UCT and have done physics at both high school and university level. I am confident in my ability to tutor this subject to students to really help them understand it and be able to excel in it.

Natural Science

Grade 1 - Grade 9

Natural Sciences is one of my favourite subjects and I love teaching it especially because it includes aspects of both Biology and Physics. I am currently completing my PGCE qualification that will enable me to teach NS in schools all over the country.
