Bio

I am a retired teacher, and would love to continue teaching/tutoring. I thoroughly enjoy doing remedial interventions with particular interest in Maths and English Literacy.

I am great at helping others because I am non-judgmental; I am patient, systematic and have a keen eye to see a learner's strengths. I am able to isolate problems and address them accordingly.

Education

• Transvaal Teacher's Diploma 1969
• Diploma in Remedial Education 1998
• I've taught Grade 1 to Grade 5 in various schools (Mainstream, Remedial and Special Needs Schools in Johannesburg, since 1970)

• I taught an illiterate uneducated Congolese child to read, write and do Maths. She was 11 years old at the time, and eventually did so well that she received the Headmaster's Award when she passed Grade 7 two years later.
• I taught a Korean boy English in order for him to catch up to his Grade.
