I am a self-motivated, dedicated and smart young woman. I am a humanitarian, a very kind person, very patient, a great listener and very passionate.

What makes me great at helping others is the fact that I myself am passionate. I believe that you can not successfully share knowledge if you are not passionate about it. Also, what makes me great at helping others is the fact that I enjoy working with people, I believe we all have to learn from one another and that is what I am aiming for. I love sharing the knowledge I have.

  • University Tutoring


First Year - Second Year

I am currently busy with my Masters in Chemistry. Chemistry is the field that I am very passionate about. It is one subject that I understand better than others. For my Masters I am doing Organic and for my Honors I was doing Inorganic Chemistry.


First Year

I found my 1st year Maths enjoyable and given that it was a bit different to what I was used to in high school, it was a nice challenge for me there therefore I would like to share that with someone as well going through that.

  • School Tutoring


Grade 1 - Grade 11

I really enjoy Maths and have always done well. I find it to be the most interesting subject to teach others.

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I am currently pursuing Chemistry as a career which is related to Physical Sciences. In high school, Physical Sciences was one of the subjects that I understood better. At time, even though challenging I still found it fun and would enjoy it.


Grade 1 - Grade 12

IsiZulu is my mother language and I know most non-Zulu speaking people may find it a bit difficult especially those learning it at school whereby they have to produce results. My high school Zulu teacher made me love my language and its richness.


Grade 1 - Grade 7

I have always excelled in English and achieved 88% for English First Additional Language in grade 12. I pride myself in understanding the technical aspects of the language as well as the beauty of it. I wish to help others understand it better!

  • Language Tutoring


Beginner - Intermediate

IsiZulu is my mother language. My high school Zulu teacher made me love my language and its richness. I would love to transfer the knowledge I have to others as well.
