Personal Description:

I am motivated, passionate and enthusiastic and I believe that there is little that cannot be achieved through hard work and determination. I am twenty years old and originally from Knysna in the Western Cape, but moved to Harrismith when my mother decided to follow her dream by opening a lion sanctuary there. I am a social person who loves achieving and therefore I understand the importance of balancing a busy life- which has lead me to discover a pretty good strategy for working smart. I was captain of my hockey team in high school, I love reading (fiction and poetry), outings in nature and any sort of art or craft.

Tutoring Experience:

Teaching comes naturally to me and have always found myself in situations of sharing this- whether by tutoring, mentoring or even teaching my younger siblings as a study technique for my own exam preparation. I was in hostel for three years and often found younger girls coming to me during study time for help. I tutored formally during my Matric year to students from grade 5 through to grade 11. I volunteered at a foundation phase and primary school in Knysna during my gap year (for approximately 2 months) where I got to experience many children of different learning abilities and age groups and pick up some wonderful teaching approaches. This was an amazing experience of growth for me! I finished my gap year by au pairing in Sweden for three months where I accompanied the two children to school (grade 3 and 7)- in order to gain better insight into schooling approach and syllabus- and then took on the responsibility of aiding the children with homework and learning activities. I am studying to become a child psychologist and, therefore, am passionate about spending the rest of my life working with children. This said, I think it is of the utmost importance to see each student as an individual who has their own strengths and learning capacities in order to optimise the outcome of the tutoring interaction.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to learning and studying is rather simple- you have to develop a proper understanding of the work and then practice it enough to develop the capacity to apply your knowledge in any situation given to you. I spent a great deal of time through my schooling career experimenting with ways of approaching learning and I feel I found a solid strategy for this. It would be my honour to use this opportunity to share my knowledge with you rather than you struggling on your own! When you can break a rather complex subject down into straightforward, easy to follow steps, you make the process so much simpler. This, time management and clear, patient explanations are the key to a successful academic career.
