Bio

I like to define myself as a pioneer, who is also adaptable, practical and reliable. I love being passionate and creative in my work, and taking steps to challenge current conventions.

While at University I became involved in the Student Development committee that organized events for students. I was also an Orientation leader, mentor and Student Front Desk Assistant who helped students through their university lives. I was trained in areas effective communication, leadership and diversity management. Over the past several years I've harnesses and refined these skills.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

English

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I have written for three websites and currently produce the English content required for clients of a graphic design company. I also blog about various personal interests and have good analysis skills useful for literature and creative writing.

History

Grade 1 - Grade 12

History is one of passions and my ability to analyze small details and connect numerous sources allowed me to become the top History student at my high school. The subject also requires a strong English capability which I possess.

Afrikaans

Grade 1 - Grade 12

As a First Additional Language, I am able to fluently converse in the language which was useful while staying in Cape Town for 3 years. My creative writing and comprehension abilities were always the highest in my class throughout high school.

Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I previously studied Civil Engineering so I have a knowledge of first and second-year math concepts which assists the students that I tutor. So far I have tutored both NSC and IEB from grade 2 until 12.

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 11

I pursued Civil Engineering at UCT where I completed 4 semesters of physics. I enjoy teaching the principles of physics using visual techniques and helping ny students apply mathematical concepts to problem solve effectively.

Life Sciences (Biology)

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I have tutored Life Science up to grade 12 and also achieved a distinction in matric. My own studies helped me create mind maps and memory techniques to recall large volumes of information and I have passed these onto students who improved their results from low 50's to mid-distinctions.

Mathematics Literacy

Grade 1 - Grade 12

While I did take core math in high school, I have 4 years of experience tutoring Maths Literacy up to grade 12. I have learned that study techniques in this subject differ from core math and I adapted to the learning styles of these students to help them understand and succeed.

Physics

Grade 1 - Grade 11

I found Physics challenging in high school but realised that the key was in relating the concepts to more simple situations that I could observe in my natural environment. I carried this technique into university which helped me achieve my best results.

Physical Science IEB

Grade 1 - Grade 11

I have 3 years of experience tutoring Physics at IEB level- both the chemistry and physics aspects. I used mainly visual techniques and simplified diagrams to enhance the student's understanding and related the examples to more practical situations to aid learning.

Natural Science

Grade 1 - Grade 9

Natural Science is the foundation that has to be mastered before moving onto Life Science or Physics. I have experience tutoring this subject for 3 years up to grade 9 and I am confident in my ability to break down the concepts for students to effectively memorise and apply.

Technology

Grade 1 - Grade 9

With my background in Civil engineering and Design I found that I was able to effectively help students who struggled to understand their assignments and technical drawing. I completed 4 years of technical drawing and also tutored this subject for 2 years.

Design & Technology

Grade 1 - Grade 9

With my background in Civil engineering and Design I found that I was able to effectively help students who struggled to understand their assignments and technical drawing. I completed 4 years of technical drawing and also tutored this subject for 2 years.
