Bio

I'm an unashamed bookworm, diehard cat lover, and obsessive baker. I'm a final-year student at UCT and a friendly an understanding tutor - I promise we'll have fun!

I'm very patient and encouraging - I find ways of turning faults into strengths. As a perfectionist, I do tasks thoroughly and am a perceptive judge of character. I believe all these qualities characterise a great tutor: one who understands her students' weaknesses, and works with gentle persistence to build on their strengths.

Education

• 2013 - 2014: BA in English Literature and Music (University of Cape Town)

Achievements

• Achieving honour roll in my Grade 8 UNISA exam and coming third in Matric, both after my mom's death
