I am a student at heart, with a huge passion for learning and understanding. I want to be able to share this passion and show learners that they are capable of so much more than they think they are.
I believe empathy is a building block to teaching, and giving others the opportunity to see that they can be comfortable asking questions and understanding from their level is something everyone deserves. I was a Councillor at school working with Grade nines and I was apart of the Johannesburg Junior Council, both of which showed me the significance of education and humility.

Eloquence is a vital part of communication, and through a love of reading I have come to understand the importance of being able to convey yourself no matter the setting.
My family on my dad's side is Afrikaans and I feel very comfortable on a First Additional Language level. The simple structure of Afrikaans makes it a great language to learn.
I have tutored several students in maths previously. Finding out how a student visualises problems is the first step to helping them acquire a deeper understanding of the subject and the world around them.
Drama is the subject I am most passionate about. I find both the theory and practical work to be fascinating- it is an outlet and an opportunity to better understand human nature.
Life Sciences (Biology)
I am doing a BSc in biological sciences at Wits this year, understanding how things work is something I really enjoy teaching and learning about.
Acquiring a strong foundation in Science is necessary to doing well in school. I had a tutor myself who brought about a turning point in my marks and know how important it is to be able to say when you don't understand something.
