Bio

Hi! I'm Npolo (pronounced Mpolo though) Ngoywa. I am a student who is honestly trying to help others while making some extra money. I can do this through tutoring - which I am good at.

In 2019, I spent most of the year tutoring a Grade 9 student from my previous high school, who wanted to get into the St John's Academy Programme - which I was fortunate enough to attend from Grades 10 - 12. I helped him with his Maths which he was really struggling with. Through this experience, I learned numerous skills and methods to help struggling students.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I graduated high school in 2018 and managed to do quite well in the Maths exam. Mathematics has always been my strongest subject and has allowed me to become more of a critical thinker.

Physics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I really enjoyed Physical Sciences. I managed to get a distinction for the subject. I also did Physics during my year at A-level. I covered the entire IEB Advanced Programming Physics curriculum during A-levels as well as in my first year of university - so I can teach this subject as well

Life Sciences (Biology)

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I really enjoyed what the curriculum had to offer during Year 12. I look forward to helping students achieve great results for this subject.

AP Maths

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I did everything that was in the AP Math curriculum while doing the Cambridge A-Level Curriculum in 2019. I also covered the topics in AP Math during my first semester of university this year. I got 88% for Engineering Maths for the first semester.

Geography

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I achieved a distinction in my final year of school for this subject and I believe that I can competently assist others achieve their academic goals in Geography. I am also patient and understanding.

English

Grade 1 - Grade 12

Although I narrowly missed out on an English distinction, I think my knowledge could easily translate to teaching the subject.

Natural Science

Grade 1 - Grade 9

Well, I got distinctions for Life Science and Physical Science. In addition, I have experience teaching Physical Science and Life Science.

Social Science

Grade 1 - Grade 9

I got a distinction for Geography and also have experience teaching Geography. I really enjoyed learning Social Science in high school, so this will definitely translate when teaching.

Chemistry

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I managed to achieve a distinction for the subject in matric and have experience teaching it. I also got a distinction for Engineering Chemistry - so experience will definitely not be an issue.
