Personal Description:

I am currently doing my Bachelors of Psychology (BPsychDegree), 2nd year, at the South African College of Applied Psychology(SACAP). My passion is to understand human behavior. In turn, I hope to help gather insight on tools that will enable one to transform their weakness into mediums of strength and being more aware of their self.The very cliched and ultimate goal is to be the best version of yourself. Additionally, I take interest in child psychology. It is important to understand that a child's school environment, family life, studying patterns and coping mechanisms sets the foundation for who they become in adult life. It is far wiser to correct any issues in childhood- while the child is still willing and flexible to change. I had finished Grade 12 in 2011, so it has been a while since I had anything to do with primary and secondary school work. I had attempted Electrical Engineering (at the University of Pretoria)and discontinued it in my 4th year. I had an amazing experience during the course of the degree, but it had taken me a while to understand my true passion, Psychology. So I know a thing or two about the fear, obstacles, pressures and the intensity of the workload that accompanies academics. However, my experiences have also made me realize the importance of enjoying what you study, the need for the appropriate tools for each personality. This, in turn, will facilitate and smoothen your transition to tertiary institution's workload. Furthermore, I have an interest in working with differently-abled children, but please note that I do not have much experience in this area. But I am more than willing to help and learn where I can

Tutoring Experience:

My experience as a student during my primary and secondary education had given me more than satisfactory results(please check my report). However, my struggles during Electrical Engineering had provided me with insight and tools that are needed to work through academics required at a far younger age. I had tutored 1st and 2nd year engineering students in Mechanics(SWK 122) and Electricity and Electronics(EBN 111) for two years. I have engaged and helped with a student (grade 4) that was based on the Reddam House school syllabus.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient and reasonable. However, I am strict when the moment calls for it. Punctuality is important and required from both my students and myself. However, life happens, so as long as we communicate effectively, we good. In relation to high school students and grade 4 to grade 7 students, it is important for me to see what your pace and perspective on the subject is currently or what your general studying patterns are. I'm more that willing to help create a better understanding of the subject and your approach to studying it. I generally work out a timetable that accommodates your schedule. I do tend to give homework, but then again it depends on my understanding of what suits my student best. With grade R to grade 3 children, I would need insight from the parent/caregiver and WE would work out a plan accordingly. I am aware of parents who would prefer someone to just provide their child with time, attention and patience with differently abled students. I am more than willing to discuss the parent and child's needs that would best adapt to the tutoring environment.
