Bio

I am a cheerful, energetic, and optimistic person, who enjoys getting to know and work with people. I love stories, making confusing things understandable, and hope to become a high-school teacher.

I am extremely patient, I have a good sense of humour, and am good at reading people. I also have experience in both leadership and tutoring, and enjoy both.

Education

• 2009 - 2013: High School
• 2014: Gap year - travelled by myself
• 2015 - 2017: B.A at UCT (controversial degree in terms of use, but no regrets)

My Proudest
Achievements

• Academic Honours in Matric - I only just scraped it but was incredibly proud of the work I put in.
• Getting my Driving License under my own steam (and funds!).
• Working as a Sub-Warden in Res and helping to create a home environment for students adjusting to university.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

English

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I major in English at university, and have helped put together an English and LO syllabus for grade 8 and 9 for SHAWCO educational outreach. I have a good knowledge of grammar, am well-read, and can help with anything from public speaking to essays.

Life Sciences (Biology)

Grade 1 - Grade 9

I thoroughly enjoyed Bio in school, and grew adept at summarising the large amounts of information.

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 9

Physics was one my favourite subjects in school, and the fact that I struggled with it meant that I learned how to break down the subject matter in order to make it easier for myself to understand, and I achieved 85% for it in Matric.

French

Grade 1 - Grade 9

I studied French throughout highschool and up to a second year level in University, and spent time in France in 2014.

Study skills

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I have tutored pupils from Grades 3 upwards how to look at work they have to do, break it down into sections, make a study timetable, and then how to use that time effectively.

Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 9

This year I have worked to put together a Maths syllabus for an outreach program for Grades 8 and 9, so I am well versed in the subject matter and how to teach it.

  • University Tutoring

English Literature

First Year - Third Year

I have taken English courses my whole university career, and know the ins and out of the theory and schools of thought well, and am well versed in academic writing.

  • Music Tutoring

Piano (Classical)

Beginner (Grades 1 - 3)

I played piano all through school, learning performance and basic theory.

  • Sports Coaching

Hockey

Beginner

I played hockey for the first team in both senior primary and high school, but although I enjoy the sport, I was never competitive in it. I prefer to teach up to grade 5, where the concentration is basic ball skills and positioning.
