Personal Description:

I have a passion for exploring organic chemistry, and am currently busy with my PhD in natural product synthesis. I am an outdoor-Ioving person who enjoys travelling, hiking, music, fly-fishing and birdwatching. Explaining new concepts to people in a unique way is a hobby of mine, and I love seeing them grasp these concepts. I find one-on-one tutoring to be an extremely enriching process.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught chemistry as a demonstrator to first, second and third year Stellenbosch University students throughout my Bachelors, Honours and Masters degrees.
I have informally tutored several friends throughout my university career.
Peak Academy (Paarl) employed me as an IGCSE chemistry tutor in 2017. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching at the school for the year and had three different classes of students.

Tutoring Approach:

Understanding a new concept is the key to being able to apply it in a versatile way. I am a firm believer in becoming comfortable with a certain topic and understanding it rather than simply learning it in a parrot-fashion. Confidence to try examples and learn from mistakes is something I believe to be very important, and I will do my best to assist you with this process. As your confidence increases over time and you lay a foundation of understanding, tackling more challenging problems will become easier and easier.
