I have 16 years of experience teaching and tutoring with CAPS, Montessori and Independent curricula. I love reading and visiting markets. I'm passionate about knowledge and learning!

I have been teaching and tutoring for over 16 years and have discovered many different approaches to learning. I love that feeling when a person who thought something was too complicated for them finally understands it once I've explained it or made an illustration, and they've realised they can do it. Success! It's the light bulb moments that inspire me.

My Proudest

• Seeing students that I have taught graduate, or meeting them later when they share what they have been doing with studies and hobbies. I have had opportunities to witness learners accomplishing in their areas of strength and weakness; to know that I have helped them in that process-how rewarding!
