Subjects taught
  • Mathematics

    Mathematics is my bread and butter. It is the basis of my Aeronautical engineering degree. I have tutored this course at all levels and professionally. All my students have achieved very high grade because I always demystify maths and tailor my lesson to ensure the student fully understands and can attempt questions on his/her own and pass.

  • Geography

    In matric this was one of my best courses, I achieved 93% as a final mark for geography. I really resonate with this course . It really comes natural to me. I wish to make a student of mine feel the same way as I feel with geography.
