Bio

A self-certified future vanguard in the transformation of education in South Africa, with a fervent passion for teaching, learning and contributing positively to the people and community around me.

My natural predilection towards emotional intelligence enables me to empathise and relate well with people, thus helping me to establish sustainable rapport. Having experience in working with students from all backgrounds and ages makes me adaptable and adept at assisting a wide gamut of people. But, ultimately, what makes me great at helping others is because I really, really want to.
