Mckayla v - Tutor in Randhart

I’m a passionate, honest learner and I believe knowledge is power. I don’t prefer to stick to formalities, because that tends to make the learning experience less comfortable. I just matriculated and have experience in the IIE syllabus. I have experience in quick learning, catching up with a large amount of work in a short period of time, whether it’s a new subject or missed work because of other factors. I’m currently studying my bachelors degree in Psychology with extra modules in Criminology and Criminal Justice along with Geography and Environmental Sciences. I love writing and reading. I love children and have experience in taking care of younger children. My favorite subjects in high school was English, Geography and Computer Application Technology (CAT). I have grown to enjoy Afrikaans as a first language too in my later high school years. Poetry and literature is my favorite area to work in. I’m aiming towards being a successful fiction writer and a forensic/clinical psychologist.

Subjects taught
  • English

    I’m extremely passionate about English as a language and art form. I’m very knowledgable in all areas of English. I’m working towards being a writer and I love reading English novels and poems. I have consistently achieved high marks for English since primary school and I’m completely fluent and speak English on native level. Once you open your eyes to the beautiful world of English literature and poetry, everything changes. Language shapes how you perceive others’ communication and excelling in language will benefit you throughout your entire life.

  • Mathematics Literacy

    Math literacy is an extremely easy subject once you understand the basics. I have a full grasp of all aspects of Math Literacy and believe anyone can do it if they have the will to. For most the subject’s easy, but for some who don’t have it that easy it’s okay to get help from someone. I don’t judge people for their shortcomings when something is suspected to be done easily and correctly.

  • Tourism

    I have taken tourism as a subject in high school and found it quite easy. With tourism you just need to have someone that is able to keep your interest and keep you on track. That would be my job. Tourism is by far one of the most interesting subjects and can enrich your perception of the world around you.

  • Geography

    Although it’s not as glorified as other scientific subjects, Geography is the best of them all. Geography taking in a human and physical aspect makes it a multidisciplinary subject that requires more insight. I have a holistic view of everything and this plays in well with understanding the world around you and not taking everything at face value.

  • Afrikaans

    Although Afrikaans is usually pretty much a drag and hindrance to many primary and high school students, I believe it’s a beautiful language if spoken well enough. Many people don’t fully understand Afrikaans and thus never truly experience the beauty of Afrikaans literature and poetry. I don’t speak high Afrikaans, but when it comes to tutoring it’s best to have someone who can talk to the student comfortably without them misunderstanding them. After all, most people who go to tutoring for Afrikaans don’t have the language skills to articulate themselves as well. I can help students who are especially in matric who want to improve their understanding and refine specific areas of their language and literacy, as well as primary school children who want to improve on their basics in Afrikaans.
