Katleho R - Tutor in Noordwyk

I value and uphold professionalism, as well as ethical conduct to the utmost when doing business. When it comes to reading, my interests lie in non-fiction factual books, in areas amongst others such as motivation, technology development, business and finance management. I hold a BSc (Eng) Aeronautical, as well as a MEng in Project Management. I enjoy DIY work such as carpentry, plumbing, metal work and parts assembly. I also enjoy watching movies, body building, watching and playing soccer. I am hard-working, a team player, open to suggestions and always willing to learn something new. I am also willing and keen to pass on the knowledge I’ve gained. I am able to take constructive criticism well, and put it to good use.
