Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified Maths and English teacher with a Post Graduate Diploma in Education. I specialise in tutoring Grade 10 to 12 Mathematics. I am able to bring a pupil's mark up by as much as 20% at times. I teach individuals and small groups of high school pupils. I have retained pupils from grade 10 to 12, and maintained good relationships with pupils.

Tutoring Experience:

Maths grade 8 and 9 and English Grade 10 (1983 Port Shepstone High).
In 2011, after a successful IT career in a number of companies, I decided I needed to diversify and have an alternative to the IT industry. I re-acquainted myself with the High School Mathematics syllabus (specifically the CAPS syllabus), and I started tutoring pupils in the grade I was working through at the same time.
I have had good results with Grade 10 to Grade 12 pupils, and I also teach grade 8 and 9 on occasions. Depending on the ability of the pupil, and where the gaps in knowledge are, I can bring pupils marks up by between 5% and 20%. I tutor individuals and small groups of 3 to 12 individuals. Sometimes the groups are mixed grades.
I am a fully qualified Mathematics and English teacher, and I have many years' experience and a post graduate course in programming and system development in the IT industry. I have also taught programming and development skills. My main teaching focus in the last 10 years has been Maths tutoring. I am therefore fully capable to teach or tutor Maths, English and IT or CAT at high school level. I am also happy to teach a combination of subjects.
It should also be noted that I have sub-majors in my degree in Geography and Biblical Studies, which I am therefore also qualified to teach.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach individuals and small groups of high school pupils. I have retained pupils from grade 10 to 12, and maintained good relationships with pupils, parents and colleagues.
I have successful relationships with clients internally and externally in the Information Technology industry and manage their requests successfully from initial concept to full design and final implementation.
I communicate well, teaching smaller classes with good results, and coaching on a one on one basis. I also utilise e-mail and other tools as necessary.
