Personal Description:

As a PhD candidate with a Master's cum laude at the University of Pretoria, you can probably tell that I'm an avid explorer and teacher of knowledge. Teaching has been a skill passed on throughout the generations of my family; with 90% of the members currently holding teaching posts in all phases of life.

I consider myself fortunate to have been provided with such valuable learning experience; not only about the content of the many a subject matter, but also the psychological and teaching skills required to convey these contents optimally. I would love to provide a learning platform for others as a means directly and indirectly improve the flourishing of our community.

Being able to engage with pupils, students and individuals is a gift that I would like to keep on giving. If you are seeking knowledge for yourself or your child, the passion that I breathe into tutoring is definitely for you. I'm looking forward to meet you…

Tutoring Experience:

Excellent teaching is one of the numerous skills which require a vast amount of experience. Luckily, that is exactly what I have been acquiring from a young age; with over a decade's expertise to draw from.

The wide range of contexts in which I have taught include: 3 years of personal mathematics and science tutoring at Master Maths, 1 year of personally tutoring mathematics for Achievers, 3 years of tutoring business ethics for large classes (500+) of BCom students and Engineering students, 4 years of lecturing Business Ethics, Philosophical Ethics, African philosophy, Politics, Psychology and Computer Literacy. Aside from having published works, I am also an editor at a journal where I proofread, evaluate and critique submitted scientific articles for publication. At UNISA I was a tutor who specialised in hybrid learning via online mediums. Currently, I am also part of a team which are hosting an academic conference; the tasks include the evaluation of abstracts, refereeing debates, and article reviews based on the conference's presentations.

If experience and expertise are as important to you as it is to me, then my services are a top choice for quality time and education.

Tutoring Approach:

The teaching skills by which one engages with one's students, pupils etc. is for me the most important quality of a excelling tutor.

Over the years, I've become increasing fascinated about finding the best way to convey knowledge, and ensuring that the knowledge stays with the student throughout their lives. The tutoring approach that I follow is called the Growth Mindset Approach pioneered by eminent Yale alumni and psychologist Professor Carol Dweck (see below for link).

In a nutshell, Growth Mindset starts with meta-cognitively teaching the student that his/her intelligence and abilities are not fixed attributes, which one either 'has' or 'does not have'. Instead, the Growth Mindset approach emphasises the neurological fact that intelligence and abilities can (and should) be developed. Not only does Growth Mindset contribute tremendously to the extent of knowledge assimilated, but also, more importantly, it teaches the student how to become excited and motivated to learn. The scientifically proven results point to a considerable increase in motivation, enjoyment of learning and academic achievement.

If the proven results of the Growth Mindset approach appeals to you, then establishing a tutor relationship with me will guarantee satisfaction.
