Mathews M - Tutor in Johannesburg

I have tutored with Gutsy tutoring since August 2018. Before that I tutored for the volunteer tutoring program at Wits because I have always loved helping students wherever I can and imparting the knowledge I have in subjects that I love and excelled in. In this time that I have been with Gutsy tutoring I’ve fallen in love with working with students, and as much I’ve shared knowledge with them I’ve also learnt a lot from them. I am currently in the last semester of my Bachelor’s degree. Some of the subjects I have done include Anthropology, Linguistics, Sociology, Research statistics, Psychology, and Organisational psychology. Being a psychology major, I have a keen interest in the processes of learning and I am really fascinated by human cognition. As such, tutoring also helps me practically expand my knowledge on the subject matter I deal with in my degree.

Subjects taught
  • Afrikaans

    I excelled in this subject from primary school to matric. I love the language, and I have experience in teaching it (been tutoring Afrikaans since August 2018). In addition to this, I have minored in linguistics in my degree - this has taught me how one acquires language, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, and has expanded my knowledge on language rules and structure.

  • Biology

    I did well in Life Sciences throughout my high school career. It is one of my favourite subjects. I have tutored Life sciences to matric students in a SSIP (Secondary School Improvement Programme) programme in Alexandra, Johannesburg.
