Subjects taught
  • Physical Science

    Physical sciences, although challenging, is a very rewarding subjects. I think that the key to succeeding in physical sciences is practice. This includes worksheets, past exam papers and taking the time to grapple with and completely understand scientific concepts.

  • Mathematics

    I think that the best way to understand mathematics is to begin slowly, and use a step-by-step approach with each concept and then enforce the understanding with practice examples. I believe that I can help you use this approach and assist you in any part of this process with the aim of giving you a full and comprehensive understanding of mathematics.

    Afrikaans was my best Matric result out of all my subjects. I have grown up amongst Afrikaans family, so am very familiar with the language. I am confident with Afrikaans terminology and conversational aspects as well as the many language aspects of Afrikaans in the academic sense, including concepts like lydende en bedrywende vorm, indirekte rede, trappe van vergelyking, betreklike voornaamwoorde etc.
