I am a people person, enjoying working with learners to help them fulfil their aspirations in their studies. I enjoy walking, listening to music and cooking.

I have some experience in working with learners who have ADHD - whether in primary or secondary school. I have a lot of experience in working with young people. Being able to match their level of learning, I assist with exam preparation, helping learners relax and feel confident in both preparing for and taking their exams.


• B.Sc. (Wits); M.Th. (UFS). I have tutored since 1982. I have a lot of experience in tutoring, especially through Teachme2 - this has built my resource and experience base to a high level.

My Proudest

• M. Th. (UFS) with Distinction. I have helped learners to build self-confidence and study skills and thus also perform better in their subjects.
