  • Chemistry

    As a chemical engineer, chemistry has been my favorite subject from high school up until today. I have studied chemistry and process engineering of which I passed very well. I also have experience in this field so I can tutor it while providing practical examples for better understanding.

  • Pure Maths

    I am very good in mathematical analysis, be it numerical, geometry, algebra or trigonometry. I passed this subject with 81% which qualifies as a distinction in South Africa. I like to put things in perspective using mathematical analysis which I believe makes one's reasoning practical especially in engineering problem solving.
