Subjects taught
  • Computer Programming

    I am a developer by trade and believe that I will easily be able to teach the concepts surrounding computer programming to anyone. The programming language isn't the major blocking point for most people; it's more the way of thinking about programming that stumps most people. I can comfortably teach Python, C, Java and Scala however I will try my best to teach any other language that may be necessary. I also achieved >80% on my NSC exam.

  • Mathematics

    I have been exposed to complicated mathematical content while studying my Engineering degree at Stellenbosch University. I believe that I have a firm grasp of the basics and will be able to teach anybody comfortably from primary school all the way to university. I also achieved >90% on my NSC exam.
