I am a very active and friendly person. My favourite things to do are travelling, going on adventures and laughing a lot.

I am very passionate about instilling proper understanding within my students. I always make sure I am not going too fast and insist my students explain back to me the material they have learned in their own words. I also make sure knowledge is not lost from lesson to lesson by quick revision in subsequent lessons. Also, I try to keep lessons light hearted and relaxed and full of laughter.

Grade 1 - Grade 10

I received an 'A' for Matric English and also completed further English courses at university level.


Grade 1 - Grade 12

I received an 'A' for History in Matric and I'm constantly furthering my learning through casual study (as it is one of my passions). I am a proficient essay writer (having completed a degree at UCT) and have experience in teaching essay techniques.


Grade 1 - Grade 10

Maths is one of my favourite subjects and definitely my favourite subject to teach. I have tutored about 10 students in Maths in the past and with all of them I have seen incredible improvements!

Music Theory

Grade 1 - Grade 10

Music Theory was one of my strongest subjects at school. Like Maths I understand it is simply about applying the correct formulas and sometimes students need a little help in grasping that.
