Bio

I am a passionate individual who is driven by making a difference in society and changing lives. The joy I have when I make a difference to a student academically inspires me and makes me proud.

Personally, I enjoy working with people, especially tutoring. I remember in 2018, I was tutoring 3 Grade 12 students who had obtained level 2 and 1 in Maths and Physical Sciences respectively. Unbelievably, 2 of those students passed Year 12 with level 4 and 6 respectively in those subjects. We all could not believe the amount of improvement that took place within a short space of time.

Education

• 2014-2016: B.Sc Geology and Oceanography(Distinction) - University of Cape Town
• 2017: B.Sc Hon Geology - University of Cape Town
• Mathematics and Physical Science teaching and tutoring experience

My Proudest
Achievements

• Obtaining 5 Distinctions in Year 12, something that is not very common from where I come from and especially considering the hardships I endured through my high school years.
• Graduating with a Distinction from the University of Cape Town, and being the first to graduate in my family.

Subjects

  • University Tutoring

Chemistry

First Year

I am a passionate educator who is inspired by making change. I have experience dealing with different kinds of students. What is unique about me is that I am also a motivational speaker, therefore I am very comfortable in lifting the spirit of a student when the going gets tough.

  • School Tutoring

Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I have experience tutoring Mathematics, thus have developed many different ways to encounter challenges that students may face. Initially, I was not brilliant at Math, so having experiences of both the ups and the downs puts me in an excellent position to bring out the best in a student.

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I believe that I am a born teacher, tutoring and changing students lives is in my blood. I make science fun and inject students with passion and understanding that will take them places. Therefore, I will change your perspective from only thinking about passing to wanting distinctions.

Geography

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I am extremely knowledgeable about Geography, and I also have practical field experience. I can even go as far as relating the content of the subjects to possible career opportunities after high school. Join me, lets explore nature together while excelling and bringing out the best of your abilities
