Bio

I am a patient and understanding person, who is self-motivated and ambitious. I love to connect with people and to help people in any way that I can.

I have useful tools and characteristics which I have gained through life experiences from school and university as well as the various leadership roles I've held, which will help students learn in a relaxed environment. Communication is key, and when it comes to learning it is about a partnership. I am also aware that everyone has a different way and style of learning that works best for them.

Education

• I graduated from UCT with a Bachelor of Music in Dance in 2017 and have had many opportunities to teach people in various subjects and forms.

My Proudest
Achievements

• Being listed on the Dean's Merit list for four years of University study, being inducted into the Golden Key Society and being accepted into pre-professional Dance training programs in Canada.
