Abigail S - Tutor in Faerie Glen

I am an extrovert and hence get most of my energy from interacting and being around people: new, old, young, whomever. I am currently studying BCom Accounting at The University of the Witswatersrand and am hoping to transfer next year to BAccounting Sciences so that I can pursue my career and dream as a Chartered Accountant. I went to St Mary's DSG in Pretoria and matriculated with 6 distinctions in: Accounting, English, Afrikaans, Life Orientation, History and Drama. I would love to use the knowledge I acquired in school and the knowledge I am continuing to acquire at university to benefit students who are not only trying to pass school but are trying to pass with the best marks! I believe in fundamentals and will focus on building a rock solid foundation before building the house.

Subjects taught
  • Afrikaans

    I am not an Afrikaans speaker but managed to get a distinction for the subject. Through the ability of breaking down questions that are frequently asked in exams and tests as well as explaining literature and poetry, I would be able to make the language easy to tackle and comprehend. I also have many resources which I used to learn the language that I would be more than willing to pass on and use with the learners I am teaching.

  • History

    The key to history is understanding it like a story. If a student can understand the events then writing essays and completing assignments are just a small obstacle to tackle instead of a giant mountain. I would be able to teach this story in the most simple way.

  • English Language and Literature

    I believe the key to English is the fundamentals and understanding basic language and literature rules. I was fortunate enough to have an amazing English in High School who taught me all of these skills of which I would now like to pass on and help another student learn.

  • Accountancy

    I really love accounting and am even studying it this year! I was taught in a way that helped me understand Accounting so easily and would be able to pass on these methods that I have been taught to help others understand! I think an accounting teacher requires patience and the ability to explain effectively. I think I have both of these. You will not go home with questions unanswered or something you do not understand!
