Malcolm W - Tutor in Parktown

I am a final year Pharmacy student at the University of the Witswatersrand, Johannesburg. I was also the head tutor and pioneered a tutoring programme at my high school in 2016. I want to instil a passion for learning and help students develop problem-solving and memorisation skills. I have won the top achievement award for mathematics and science award in my high school and was appointed an ambassador at the Karabo centre for science, mathematics and commerce (Which required an overall average of 90% for mathematics and science for the Karabo June, preliminary and final exams). Apart from this, I would like to help students develop study methods and preparation skills (Inclusive of organising and planning for tests and exams).
