Nikita J - Tutor in Johannesburg

I am very passionate and enthusiastic about learning, but I also understand feeling lost, stuck, clueless or lacking motivation. Those are feelings everyone experiences at some point and the best way to overcome them is to seek assistance. This is why I enjoy helping others to learn. I am also patient and easy to talk to/ approach when help is needed. I chose a very practical degree- Mechanical Engineering in which I can challenge myself and apply my passion for Maths, Mechanics and Design.

Subjects taught
  • Pure Maths

    Mathematics has always been my favourite subject and my strongest subject. My mathematics marks from school and university can demonstrate this. I also find it easy to explain methods/ find simple, effective ways of uniquely helping individuals based on what works best for them. I am well suited for this since I useuse Maths as a crucial tool in daily calculations as a student studying Mechanical engineering, thus understand the importance and application techniques of Mathematics in the real world.

  • General Maths & Science

    The career I am pursuing is Mechanical Engineering. This degree breaks down complex everyday problems and uses a deep understanding and detailed applications of maths and science to find solutions. I have both enjoyed and excelled in Maths and Science. I enjoy breaking down a problem and establishing steps as to how to go about solving the problem. Thus, I can tailor unique methods to help students not only pass but also do well in Maths and Science.

  • Mechanics

    I've both enjoyed and excelled in Mechanics. I enjoy breaking down a problem and establishing steps as to how to go about solving the problem. This method simplifies and effectively works for high school mechanics. Thus, I can tailor unique methods to help students not only pass but also do well in Mechanics. I am well suited for this since I use Mechanics on an everyday basis as it is the essence of Mechanical engineering.

  • Calculus

    Calculus is a subject I've both enjoyed and excelled in at both school and university level. Helping friends with Calculus has proven beneficial for both sides. I also find it easy to explain methods/ find simple, effective ways of uniquely helping individuals based on what works best for them. I am well suited for this since I use Calculus as a crucial tool in daily calculations as a student studying Mechanical engineering, thus understand the importance and application techniques of Calculus in the real world.
