Bio

I am a hard-working academic who loves learning. I also enjoy traveling and playing musical instruments.

I have an in-depth understanding of concepts, so I like to explain concepts in a very fundamental manner and work from there. With TeachMe2, I have helped many pupils to improve their learning techniques and understanding of content.

Education

• Matriculated from Hilton College with 9 distinctions (2017)
• Over 100 hours tutoring experience privately and with TeachMe2, especially Grade 10 - 12 pupils
• Currently 2nd year BA (LLB) at UCT.

My Proudest
Achievements

• I was Dux Proxima and Scholar of the Year (best IEB results) at school and my Matric French results placed me in the top 1% for French nationally. I am on the Dean's Merit List at UCT and a member of the Golden KEy International Honour Society.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

Mathematics is one of my favourite subjects and I have received numerous awards for mathematics throughout my schooling career. I achieved over 90% in Grade 12 and I was the top maths scholar.

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 9

I achieved a distinction for physical science in Matric and in Grade 10 I was awarded the Sir Henry Strakosh scholarship and UKZN trophy for Excellence in Mathematics and Physical Sciences.

Music Theory

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I have studied music theory for nearly ten years while learning multiple musical instruments and I achieved a distinction for music in Grade 12. I also won the music prize at school.

French

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I spent two months on an exchange programme to France which boosted my proficiency in French. I have DELF Level B2 certification in French and I have completed my 3rd year of French at UCT. I have been tutoring French for 3 years and it is my favourite subject to teach!

Advanced Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I took Advanced Mathematics as an extra subject at school and preferred it to core Mathematics. I did graph theory and matrices as the optional module.

English

Grade 1 - Grade 12

As a native English speaker, I excelled in English at school, especially with essay writing, grammar and literature. I have studied Shakespeare and a number of classic novels, as well as some African writers.

Afrikaans

Grade 1 - Grade 9

I enjoy learning languages and I have excelled in all three that I have studied. I enjoyed Afrikaans much more than most of my peers at school did and I wish I had more opportunities to speak the language.

History

Grade 1 - Grade 10

I really enjoy history and I am particularly good at essay writing. I did my One Research Task Project on African history in Grade 12 and I achieved over 90% for my project.

Chemistry

Grade 1 - Grade 12

Chemistry is my favourite topic in science and I have always excelled in the subject.

Mathematics IEB experience

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I achieved a high distinction for mathematics at school and I wrote the IEB examinations. My teacher from Grade 10 - 12 was the IEB Maths Paper 1 examiner so I learnt a lot about IEB Mathematics from him.

  • Music Tutoring

Music Theory

Beginner (Grades 1 - 3) - Intermediate (Grades 4 - 6)

I have studied music theory for nearly ten years while learning multiple musical instruments and I achieved a distinction for music in Grade 12. I also won the music prize at school.

Alto Saxophone

Beginner (Grades 1 - 3) - Advanced (Grades 7 - 8)

I have many years of experience performing in bands and orchestras and I have passed Grade 8 in both classical and jazz saxophone. I love the instrument and would love to share my enthusiasm with others.

Piano (Classical)

Beginner (Grades 1 - 3)

I have been playing the piano for about 7 years now and I really enjoy the instrument. I studied music at school so I have a lot of background knowledge regarding theory and history which I believe is important for a holistic musical education.

Aural Training

Beginner (Grades 1 - 3) - Intermediate (Grades 4 - 6)

Aural training has always been a part of my musical education, from learning three different instruments to studying music as a subject at school, so I have developed a very keen ear. I have learnt advanced aural techniques for honing aural skills.

Improvisation

Beginner (Grades 1 - 3) - Intermediate (Grades 4 - 6)

I achieved a distinction for Grade 8 Jazz Saxophone and improvisation was a large part of that exam. I have done a lot of improvising in jazz bands at school and at the National Art Festival. I have also studied the theory behind improvisation.

Piano (Contemporary)

Beginner (Grades 1 - 3)

I have been playing the piano for about 7 years now and I really enjoy the instrument. I studied music at school so I have a lot of background knowledge regarding theory and history which I believe is important for a holistic musical education.

  • Language Tutoring

French

Beginner - Intermediate

I have DELF B2 certification in French, as well as having finished 3rd year French at UCT. I have been tutoring French for 3 years and I am studying two languages at university, so I am very in tune with how language is taught and learnt.

  • University Tutoring

French

First Year - Second Year

I have finished 3rd year Business French at UCT (1st class pass) and I have DELF B2 certification. I am still studying languages at university so I am very familiar with how language is taught and learnt, which has influenced my tutoring style.
