Nduduzo K - Tutor in Durban

I am an easy-going, committed, energetic and highly ethical 22-year-old Master of Social Science student majoring in Political Science. In 2017 I completed my B-ART degree majoring with Legal studies & Political Science, and in 2018 I completed my Honors Degree in Political Science and this year I’m doing my Masters by Research in Political Science. I have a strong socio-economic and political awareness of South African socio-economic issues such as current global politics, global economy, community developmental issues, poverty, unemployment, transformation and HIV/AIDS epidemic, and the discussion around them. I am innovative, analytical and have strategic thinking abilities. I have excellent interpersonal and communication skills both written and verbally. I am a team player with pleasant personality, who quickly adapts to any situation and reacts positively to challenges and change, and able to also work individually under pressure with a good sense of urgency. I believe I possess good emotional intelligence. My ability to articulate myself well, speak clearly, write and present myself fluently has enabled me to develop skills in building relations and strengthening interpersonal relations with individuals and groups. I have also build excellent leadership experience and skills as a Representative Council of Learners’ (RCL) President in Isibonelo High School, Durban, KZN. I have also been involved in the community youth activations programs hosted by the St Johns Apostolic Faith Mission church Newlands branch. Furthermore, during my Undergrad studies at the University of KwaZulu Natal I volunteered as a Media & Publicity Officer in one of the student organization called Youth Academic and Social Life Improvement Organization (YASLIO). In addition last year 2017 I was elected to become a House Committee Member at my residence as a Sports & Recreation Officer under the supervision of the Department of Student Residence Affairs (DSRA) together with the local SRC. In addition I was recently employed by the IEC as the electoral stuff, during the 2018-2019 University of Kwa-Zulu NATAL SRC elections. In 2019 I was selected as Research Assistant to join the Centre for Civil Society research team conducting a KZN exit poll survey on Elections Day. I am currently assisting with private social and academic lessons to 1sts year students at the university and also in High Schools around Durban. Lastly, I have gained experience in data collection and analysis, presentations and facilitation of workshops especially for youth and community members.

Tutor

As a Mentor, tutor and an Advisor at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal and YASLIO, I am constantly faced with having to find new ways to deliver information and ensure that everyone understands and completes tasks. I have unexpected challenges which I have to solve on the spot as I deal with different people from diverse backgrounds who have various skills and deficiencies. This has refined my communication skills with my peers, those younger/below me and with management.
