Not only do I study biology at UCT, but I am so overly enthusiastic about this subject that I enjoy spending my free time tutoring it. Occasionally I need a break and I tutor some science and maths.

Instead of parrot learning, I like to focus on finding innovative ways to not only remember but truly comprehend the content being studied. To do this I have many tricks and techniques, from mind maps to flash cards etc. I also understand who studying is frustrating and am therefore patient when I am tutoring. Due to studying biology, I have a in depth knowledge of most high school content.

Life Sciences (Biology)

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I find Biology fascinating and it has been a life long passion of mine, I am currently in my 3rd year of Marine Biology at UCT. My Matric mark was the 8th best in the Province. I have many tricks and techniques for getting content to sink in.


Grade 1 - Grade 11

I have always enjoyed the challenge Maths has provided. It was one of my strong subjects in school and I took it up to a university level.

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 10

Physical Science has always enchanted me and I enjoy it thoroughly. I have passed an extremely difficult full year chemistry course at university.
