I am a highly educated individual with a doctorate in nuclear astrophysics with 2 years of experience tutoring university students. I am hard-working, knowledgeable, and I will be an excellent choice.
I am great at helping others because I am patient and using my knowledge of the field I can simplify it to a point where someone can better understand it for themself.
• 2008 matric (7 A's)
• 2009-2011 B.Sc. (cum laude)
• 2012 B.Sc. Hons (cum laude)
• 2013-2015 M.Sc. (cum laude)
• 2016-2019 PhD.
• All degrees awarded for fields in physics from the University of Stellenbosch.
• My proudest achievement is earning a doctorate from Stellenbosch University.
• I'm very proud of being a postdoctoral fellow at iThemba LABS and a published physicist.
• Lastly, I am extremely proud of having forty distinctions during my university career with all my degrees awarded cum laude.
I am a nuclear astrophysicist with a PhD in the field. I am also published in peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Physical review C with multiple years of experience in tutoring university students.
I have extensive experience in data analysis using C++ for my doctoral research as well as Java (GUI applications) with additional experience in Python.
I have extensive experience in mathematics. My highest level was 2nd-year mathematics. All modules that I took during the two years I passed with distinction (cum laude) except one. In addition to that, my career in physics has extended my mathematical abilities.

Before completing my postgraduate studies, my undergraduate degree was a dual major in physics and chemistry. I have extensive experience in organic, physical, inorganic, and analytical chemistry up to 3rd year having passed all courses during those three years cum laude, apart from one.
I achieved 82% for Afrikaans at Matric level. I am confident in my ability to assist.
I have extensive experience in tutoring first-year biophysics students in the differential tutor support groups at Stellenbosch university. I did this while completing my PhD in nuclear astrophysics.
I find Chemistry to be a challenging yet rewarding subject. As someone who has successfully navigated through its complexities, I believe I can guide my students to achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
“Johann has been super patient, gentle and kind with Josh in explaining things again when he doesn't get things at first. Josh has enjoyed all his sessions and usually seems very upbeat after his session and feeling proud that he understands the work better. His marks have also improved very nicely. Josh got 81% for his last exam on his report and we are super proud of him.”
“Johann is the greatest!! He makes work very practical and has a practical approach to learning which helps during the learning process. Johann's level of patience is out of this world. Thank you for imparting a wealth of wisdom and a practical way of understanding Maths and Physical Science”
“Johann is an excellent tutor - his knowledge of physics is exceptional and his ability to explain clearly, kindly and patiently was appreciated. I highly recommend him to fellow students ”
“Johann has helped me understand Physics and Chemistry on a level I could not even imagine! He has also gone trough much effort to give me past exam papers to prepare me for my upcoming exams.”
“Johan’s knowledge of the subject is exceptional. His teaching methods are excellent ”
