Personal Description:

I am currently studying a BA in Social Dynamics at Stellenbosch University. I thoroughly enjoyed all my school subjects (Afrikaans Huistaal, English Home Language, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, Geography and Engineering Graphics & Design) and excelled in extra-murals such as debating, redenaars, music and art. I remain professional at all times, but I do know how to spice up a lesson to keep the student interested. I matriculated from Paarl Boys' High School in 2016 and am fully capable of tutoring in both Afrikaans and English. I am also actively involved with student tours in Europe and Africa as I truly love enriching young people's knowledge.
I am generally an extremely positive and energetic person who always sees the best in people, my greatest asset, however, is my patience.

Tutoring Experience:

I have officially been tutoring since June 2017 and have experience in grades 4 - 12.
My first experience with tutoring was in high school when I tutored a few of my friends, mainly before exams and this I naturally did at no cost. In 2017, however, I tutored someone for a fee for the first time - a grade 5 boy who happens to have Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome which falls in the autism spectrum. I tutored him in all his subjects and can honestly say that I have gained much experience from him. I currently have over 250 hours of tutoring experience. I am fully bilingual in Afrikaans and English, so teaching in either language will not be a problem.

Tutoring Approach:

Before the first lesson with the student I cannot provide a detailed 'tutoring blueprint' as each student is unique and has different learning requirements. I can, however, provide some of the 'building materials' I may make use of.
The least learning done by the student will most probably be in first lesson as I will be doing most of the learning (about the student).
My typical approach would be to observe and help wherever I can during the first lesson, I will also review the learning material and make sure that I am up to scratch with it. Then I can formulate a more customized approach and will most definitely be properly prepared for the next lesson.
At the end of each lesson I will inform the student as to what still requires attention and what the basis of the next lesson will be.
Before examinations and tests I may set up study timetables for the student, or help set up timetables as some students do prefer their own touch in such things. I also source examination papers and will thoroughly go through some papers with the student.
A more detailed approach will be provided after the first lesson.
