My hobbies range from horse-riding to traveling to new countries. Despite my passion for extra-curricula activities, I also believe in balance and have maintained a strong academic grounding.

I have always loved learning new things, which I think is reflected in the range of subjects I tutor. In university I tutored, first teaching Arabic to adults, and then tutoring first year politics students as well as students with a weak academic background. I have an ability to collate, summarize and explain information that lends itself to most subjects.

• 2012 Honours in International Relations
• 2014 Masters in Public Policy Management at the Wits
