Bio

I have matriculated with 6 distinctions. I always try my best to improve students' study skills, as well as to boost their confidence. You count on me, that complete the jobs that are given to me.

I am excellent at explaining concepts to people. I am really adaptable and find it easy to work with others (as well as learners with learning difficulties/ disabilities). I see myself as easily accessible. I am very empathetic and know what it should feel like to be a student that is stressed out. I am very patient and have the ability to explain one concept over and over again.
