Personal Description:

As a qualified Mechatronics Engineer, a graduate of UCT (University of Cape Town) and currently an employed engineer at Denel (South Africa's largest armament manufacturer), it gives me great pleasure to draw up this profile on my academic achievements.

I have enjoyed full scholarships throughout the four years of my degree at UCT and have performed consistently well throughout my academic career, receiving numerous awards and certificates over that period.

My latest notable achievement was receiving a distinction on my thesis project, which I pride myself on, due to the many challenges I've had to overcome to reach that stage of my academic life.

I reside in Benoni and I'm willing to work with motivated learners/students.

I prefer to work with younger learners/students desiring to follow a similar career path, whom I may mentor and assist in achieving their goals. My students also have the option of viewing my CV and gaining my assistance in drawing up their own.

Tutoring Experience:

As a 90% plus learner throughout my schooling career, I often tutored my classmates, younger friends and family.

Throughout my campus career I have tutored younger students. As an engineer, my mathematics, I.T and physics skills are considerably strong.

I served on the engineering mentor program at the University of Cape Town for THREE years, where I guided and motivated first year engineering students overcome the challenges faced by a 'freshman'.

Throughout my academic career, I have come to realise that the best way to learn is by teaching others, which I have been doing since my early days at school.

Tutoring Approach:

The key to successful tutoring is abstaining from a 'one size fits all' approach. Different teaching methods work well for different minds and therefore, a situational, rather than a uniformed approach is opted for.

A student's thinking ability is assessed with a few analytical examples, and thereafter a teaching style is tailored to suit the student. The complexity of the questions will increase with the increased improvement noted in the learner. As a tutor, it is pertinent to display high levels of patience and determination, to assess and mainpulate the approach a number of times over, while keeping the end goal in mind, academic excellence. From personal experience, Math is a subject mastered through repetition and consistency and thus self discipline and dedication is required from the student.

One of the quotes I live by and would like my students to acknowledge, "It does not matter how slowly you going, as long as you do not stop." anonymous
