Bio

I am an enthusiastic university student who loves to learn and help others learn. I am friendly, diligent, and I care very much about doing well and helping my students to do the same.

I am able to simplify concepts and use metaphors to explain things, and I care about my students and their progress. I self taught the syllabus for my high school career up to Cambridge AS level, so I have learned how to figure out concepts and help others to understand them. I thoroughly enjoyed tutoring school children at Kumon, and also worked as a Statistics 101 tutor at Rhodes university.

Education

• Achieved 7 distinctions in 2013 for AS levels through Cambridge.
• Currently in my 1st year of PhD in Entomology with a focus in Biological Control at Rhodes University.

My Proudest
Achievements

• I achieved the highest marks in South Africa for Biology and Geography at Cambridge AS level through the British International Distance College.
• I was able to achieve firsts in all my subjects in first year university and thus made the Dean's list in 2014.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

Life Sciences (Biology)

Grade 1 - Grade 12

Life Sciences was my favourite subject at school, and I have done very well in it, and continue to do so at university level. I have often helped my sister with this subject. I received the highest marks in South Africa at Cambridge AS level in 2012.

Geography

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I have been able to understand and remember Geographical concepts throughout my school career. I took this subject again in my first year of university and achieved the highest marks in South Africa at Cambridge AS level for this in 2012.

English

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I self taught this subject throughout my high school career, and managed to achieve good marks. I have experience helping with English tutoring at Kumon as well.

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I self taught this subject and enjoy learning about the processes. I have continued this subject in my university career.

Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I self taught this subject, and developed the skills to figure out how to use equations on my own. It excites me, and I can simplify the concepts so that learners could better understand them. I have experience tutoring statistics 101 at university.

Study skills

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I strongly believe that different study methods work for different people. Self studying has enabled me to find what works for me and I hope to aid others in finding their optimal studying techniques.

Additional Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I've found that Mathematics can be very enjoyable when you understand how to do it, and practice is the best way to understand. When helping others with Maths, I try to focus on the joy you can get out of it, as this helped me to achieve better marks.

  • Language Tutoring

English

Beginner

I have experience helping with English tutoring at Kumon as well as one on one tutoring. It is my home language, and I enjoy reading as many books as I can to improve it.

  • University Tutoring

Statistics

First Year

I did well in Statistics 101, and have experience tutoring university students at Rhodes University.

A lot of my friends found Chemistry difficult to understand, and I was able to help them with this. I am good at using equations and figuring out concepts.

Biology

First Year

I enjoyed taking Cell Biology in the first semester and continue to study Biology in my second year of university. I am a passionate tutor ready to tackle any challenge.

Zoology

First Year - Second Year

Zoology is one of my favourite subjects and is one of my majors for my third year at university. My interest in this subject is a great help towards helping others to understand, remember and apply its teachings.
