Personal Description:

I came to South Africa in 1979 with my MSc in chemistry from Manchester University. Later I studied chemical engineering in Canada and completed my PhD at Wits University. I became a South African citizen in 1992. I am a registered professional engineer and have worked in industry and tertiary education. My two adult daughters have left home but also live in Johannesburg. I currently work part-time as a consultant on mining and minerals projects.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as a teaching assistant in the UK and Canada, giving tutorials and supervising laboratory practicals. I was employed as a research officer at Wits where I did more of the same. I have worked in the Middle East as a process trainer for an oil company in Abu Dhabi and for an aluminium producer in Bahrain. I was employed as a senior lecturer in chemical engineering at the University of Johannesburg and at Unisa.

Tutoring Approach:

I have an outgoing personality and I believe studying should be fun. I like to use the simplest language possible to explain complex ideas. I also use examples and analogies that learners are familiar with. In fact I'll bend over backwards to ensure that learners understand the fundamentals of the subject. I will ensure that learners demonstrate their understanding with suitable exercises. I will also help learners to prepare for exams.
