Bio

I am Sasha, and I believe that learning, connection and happiness are what life is all about! So, with that in mind, I want to help people to achieve their learning goals.

I found as a student that patience, humour and compassion were the qualities I appreciated most in my teachers. I apply these when helping anyone with any task, regardless of their skill level. I believe that attitude and effort are two of the most important factors when learning, and they are promoted by positivity.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

English

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I enjoy reading and writing and put maximum effort into English at school. This led to consistently high achievements in the subject, particularly in essay writing. I would like to make it as accessible and enjoyable for others as I have found it.

Afrikaans

Grade 1 - Grade 10

Afrikaans is my second language and I enjoyed it as a subject in school. I am confident that I am able to assist with learning the basics of the language as well as comprehension skills.

Life Sciences (Biology)

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I am passionate about Biology and loved to host studying sessions for the subject during school.

Life Orientation

Grade 1 - Grade 12

Life Orientation is an important but often overlooked subject. It is highly enjoyable if taught with application of the life skills it teaches in mind, which is what I do when tutoring this subject.

Drama

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I received high marks for both the theory & practical components of Drama in matric, playing multiple lead roles in school productions. Essay writing is an essential skill for the theory exams and I am able to assist with this important component.

Art

Grade 1 - Grade 12

Visual Art is a passion of mine and I enjoyed helping others with the practical and theory aspects of the subject during school.

  • Language Tutoring

Conversational English

Beginner - Intermediate

I have volunteered in the past to teach English in Russia to young children and found the work highly rewarding. I believe that, with patience and practice, people of any age can benefit greatly from conversational language tutoring.

Mandarin

Beginner

I majored in Chinese Studies and graduated with distinction in the subject. I was also fortunate enough to visit China twice through a partnership programme with Sun Yat-Sen University. There I attended intensive Mandarin lectures and gained experience using the language practically.
