Bio

I am a down-to-earth and friendly person. I'm also a go-getter who works very hard and tends to thrive under pressure so much so that very little can stop me from attaining my goals.

For starters, my passion, attitude and understanding of Math, Physics, Engineering Graphics & Design, and Geography are phenomenal. Secondly, I always showcase determination and a thorough understanding of the subjects. I almost always begin with the basics of each and every section or chapter that's there to be tackled; and, most importantly - I am very patient with my students/learners.

Education

• B.Sc in Actuarial Science (Wits)
• Commercial Pilot Licence with ME/IR (FTS)
• Flight Instructor's Rating (FTS)
• Diploma in Mechanical Engineering (UNISA)
• 8 years of teaching CIE, IB, IEB, CAPS

My Proudest
Achievements

• My proudest moment was helping a matric student excel in his matric rewrites. He went from being at risk to qualifying to enter university!

I possess advanced problem solving skills in Mathematics as I studied the subject thoroughly at tertiary level. I am very good at simplifying the concepts in the GMAT syllabus, which are often quite diverse.

Fluid Mechanics

First Year - Second Year

In Fluid Mechanics, I've mastered essential topics, including Fluid Statics, Kinematics of Fluid Motion, Conservation of Mass, Work & Energy of Motions (Bernoulli & Energy Equations), Fluid Momentum, and Differential Fluid Flow.

It's well known that in the Aviation Fraternity, one is urged to self-study. With that in mind, I went on to become a bit of self-taught expert in preparing myself for Pilot theoretical exams. I've maintained an average 85% pass mark.

Reviews from others

“Siphiwe is very kind, humble and insanely smart. It is very rare to have a teacher who is patient and will go through all your questions in detail. He is also very approachable and always willing to help.”

Joshua

“Siphiwe is absolutely professional. He is very patient and has a pleasant personality. As far as content is concerned, he has a thorough knowledge of maths and shared new approaches to problem solving. This was particularly helpful as there were large learning gaps my daughter was struggling with due to only starting the academic year at school in the 3rd term. Had it not been for Siphiwe's tutoring, my daughter most likely would have not passed grade 11. We will definitely be continuing maths tutoring with him in January 2018. Thank you Siphiwe for all your help. Warmest Regards, Natasha & Hannah”

Natasha

“Siphiwe was a great tutor:focused, effective and went beyond the call of duty by answering telephonic queries at all times of the day and night. I strongly recommend him. ”

Margie

“His knowledge on the subject matter is phenomenal and his ability to teach Michaela is impeccable ”

Shuntelle

“He has been very patient and understanding when I struggled to grasp a concept, and with particularly difficult ones he found other methods of explaining so that I could understand. ”
