Bio

I am a dedicated husband and father who looks for creative solutions to problems and enjoys a challenge. I firmly believe that every person is unique and has value.

In my eight years of tutoring, I have learned how to meet students where they are at, and bring out the best in them. I am friendly, but firm, and look for the root of a problem, not just the symptoms. My own busy life has taught me how to help my students manage their time effectively. I do not give up on people, but persevere until they grasp a concept. I am fully bilingual.

Education

• Tutoring since 2010 with specialisation in remedial work
• Tutor at an Impak study centre in 2015
• Currently studying for a BTh at Unisa

My Proudest
Achievements

• Whilst at school I was a high achiever in both culture and academics, but since then my proudest achievements have been teaching Afrikaans to a total beginner in only two months, and repeatedly helping failing students raise their maths marks by over 20%.
