Bio

I am an employed chemical engineer at Sasol and a member of the Golden Key society. I strongly believe that nobody is more intelligent than another; it all depends on how it was explained.

The problem with Science and Maths is that most teachers do not explain the WHY to why things can't be done. I have a good fundamental understanding of these subjects. ADHD is something I struggle with myself so I understand the struggle that some students face. I have tutored friends, students, and my younger brother in my respective subjects. I tutor Maths, AP Maths, Physics, and Chemistry.

Education

• BEng Chemical at the University of Pretoria
• Two years employed at Sasol as a chemical engineer

My Proudest
Achievements

• I have appeared in the news paper for achieving 8 distinctions at Helpmekaar College, an IEB school and received a bursary from Sasol for Chemical Engineering.
• I have achieved Golden Key status (top 10% in a Bachelors degree) for four years in a row during my studies.
