Bio

I am an ambitious, and hardworking Education student with a passion for young people. My core values include respect and integrity.

I have a selfless and caring personality which makes helping and assisting other people something that I’m naturally passionate about and drawn to. I am fortunate to have had the chance to gain a lot of experience in teaching and tutoring both academics and sports, which is where I discovered my passion. I am currently studying educational psychology at the University of Pretoria and I love it!

I achieved high marks for this subject in high school and continued to take Calculus in my first semester of studies. I also do have experience tutoring this subject to students from Gr 8 - 12 as well as presenting revision classes to small groups.

English

English is a subject that I really love, especially the literacy part. English is one of my electives in university which gives me a growing knowledge base on this subject and enables me to help students prepare more effectively for university.

Life Sciences (Biology)

Grade 1 - Grade 12

Biology is a subject I found quite easy to do well in during my high school career. It is a lot of study work and I have a variety of study methods that I can teach learners to help them in this subject to both remember and understand the content.

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I have experience tutoring and teaching small groups in this subject and found that I was successful at helping students understand and effectively apply the concepts taught in Physical Science.
