Bio

After graduating from UCT (BA: Psychology, German and Music, distinction), I aupaired in Germany and traveled around Europe in 2017. I am now working, and tutoring purely for the love of it!

I can be a good role model and set a good example of how hard work and a positive character can pay off. Having overcome struggles in life, I feel I can contribute to children who struggle academically. I am loyal and determined, but patient and kind, and thus I can create a positive learning environment where a student can see learning as fun, and not as a chore.

Education

• I graduated from UCT in 2016 with a BA: Psychology, German and Music (with distinction). I aupaired in Germany for a year in 2017. I was a substitute teacher at Rosebank Progress College in 2015
