After graduating from UCT (BA: Psychology, German and Music, distinction), I aupaired in Germany and traveled around Europe in 2017. I am now working, and tutoring purely for the love of it!
I can be a good role model and set a good example of how hard work and a positive character can pay off. Having overcome struggles in life, I feel I can contribute to children who struggle academically. I am loyal and determined, but patient and kind, and thus I can create a positive learning environment where a student can see learning as fun, and not as a chore.

• I was on the Dean's Merit list, and won 3 Class Medals for German in 2014 and 2015, as well as a Humanities Faculty Scholarship. I graduated from UCT with a B.A: Psychology, German and Music, with Distinction
Having achieved 7 distinctions in matric, with the 8th being 79%, I feel that I have much to contribute in terms of study skills.

I am fluent in English, and received 85% for the subject in Matric.
Having received 7 distinctions with 79% for the 8th, I feel I can contribute towards exam preparation and study skills.
Foundation Phase- Literacy
I love children, and work with children at Children's Church and at the children's hospital, thus I have patience and can meet them at their level.
Foundation Phase- Numeracy
As with the above, I love children and work with children every Sunday at Children's church, thus I have the patience needed and can meet them at their level.
I am capable of being patient as well as firm, and feel I can do well overseeing homework.
Having received a distinction for Life Orientation in Matric, as well as doing a course in Psychology at UCT, I feel I am capable at tutoring Life Orientation.

I majored in German & I understand the requirements for teaching a foreign language. I am well-equipped in teaching all aspects of English.
I am currently in my third year of studying music at university, and took music theory for the first two years of my degree.
Having taken piano at school and a bit in university, I would rather teach it at a beginners level until I further my own training.
