Personal Description:

I am a fun loving, cheerful and energetic individual who plays a lot of sport and enjoys being around people. I love helping others and am always willing to go the extra mile to help someone in need. I am currently studying mechanical engineering and tend to have a problem-solving approach to life.

My greatest strengths include:
being extremely patient
finding creative ways to simplify problems
communication
making people feel comfortable

I have found tutoring to be an incredibly rewarding job. It allows me to use my talents to help others reach their full potential.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring primary and high school professionally for over 3 years. I have helped students from 8 to 18 years old. My first informal tutoring experience came in high school when I developed a reputation for being able to help my peers in mathematics and physical science.

Some of my greatest tutoring achievements include:
Giving a two week crash course to a student who failed their mock Matric mathematics exam. The student increased their mark by 15% and went from failing to passing.
Helping a grade 2 student go from 4/7 average to a 6/7 average and in the process helping the student achieve a confidence in their own abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring varies greatly on the students abilities, goals and their age.

For younger students, I try to make the learning process as fun and interactive as possible. I do this by developing a big brother relationship rather than a teacher-student relationship. I have found that this greatly improves students attitude towards the work and allows them to actually enjoy their schoolwork.

For older students, I try to focus in on the fundamentals as I believe this is vital to being able to understand the later work. I try to give students an understanding of the work rather than teaching them a blind process to arrive at the correct answer. When confronted with a problem, I will attempt to simplify the problem as far as possible allowing the student to understand the core of the problem.
I also try to teach students techniques in order for them to figure problems out on their own.
