Bio

I am ambitious and driven. I thrive on challenge and constantly set goals for myself, I'm not comfortable with settling, and I'm always looking for an opportunity to do better and achieve greatness.

I believe that true success is measured by the people around you and that once you achieve something if possible help those around you by giving them a push. This is why throughout high-school I made it a must to help learners that were struggling with certain subjects. I am an empath and constantly try to help people as it brings me joy when they are happy.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

Accounting

Grade 1 - Grade 12 NSC

Accounting has always been my passion. So much so that I am currently studying a CA(SA) stream. I was a peer tutor and often taught my class when the teacher was unavailable and I tutored learners after school

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 12 NSC

I am more passionate about Physics than Chemistry. I admire the work of Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. I was a peer tutor in high-school and enjoy teaching and watching a learner understand their work.

Geography

Grade 1 - Grade 12 NSC

The study of places and the relationships between people and their environments is very interesting, so much so that I became a peer tutor to assist fellow classmates in grasping this subject. I often taught the class when the teacher was unavailable

Homework

Grade 1 - Grade 11 NSC

I volunteer at the local children's home and help all grades with their homework and studying. I am able to explain complex work in simple terms to ensure the learner grasps it. I am patient and passionate about teaching.

Economic Management Science (EMS)

Grade 1 - Grade 9 NSC

EMS is the foundation for accounting in NSC, any learner that wants accounting in grade 10 needs to understand the foundation well. I am currently studying accounting science at Wits and thus, I have an in-depth understanding of the subject to assist anyone at any level.

Life Orientation

Grade 1 - Grade 12 NSC

Life Orientation is one of those subjects that you really enjoy and are able to apply what you are taught into everyday life. I fully understand all the components of this subject, as well as giving study skills to understand and ace ALL exams.

Natural Science

Grade 1 - Grade 9 NSC

Before doing Physical Sciences, you need to do Natural Sciences. By doing Physical Sciences in high school, I am able to understand the concepts and content taught in Natural Science. My love for nature, comes as a benefit when teaching, as I am able to incorporate this.

Exam Preparation

Grade 1 - Grade 11 NSC

I am a diligent student and always plan my schooling year from the very first day. I have helped multiple friends and classmates, prepare study timetables and break down the content. During study week, I am able to help my peers who are behind understand the subject with content summaries.

English

Grade 1 - Grade 9 NSC

I am fluent in English. I love reading, so much so that I spend most of my day doing it. From grade 1 all through high school I was always the best reader. I have experience in tutoring English. I love the language, and always find a way to play with the words to give a new meaning to learning.
