Bio

I am a teacher at heart, having spent 25 years in classrooms in both South Africa and the United States. More recently I have been tutoring young people on an individual basis and loving it.

I am very patient and understanding. I always try to discover what each individual's learning style is and in that way, my approach to teaching is very focussed and relevant. I love sharing my interest in my subjects and seem to have the ability to inspire others to also enjoy learning. Helping young people to feel positive about their own ability is my strength. Honesty is crucial.
