Bio

I would describe myself as a patient, compassionate and reliable person who is dedicated to learning (big picture thinker). I'm a self-employed entrepreneur and also work as a Co-Director of an NPO.

Diverse Multi-Cultural communication experience - worked with adults and children. As a counsellor I have learnt that one needs to have a person-centered approach and this I believe is a vital component for tutoring where guidance and a caring attitude is key. I think with the right attitude you can teach anyone , no matter the subject :)
