Angus L - Tutor in Zevenfontein 407-Jr

My name is Angus Lowe. I have an Honours degree in education with a weird nerdy passion for English, history and geography. I have loved helping people all my life and always try to give my students the opportunity to learn in their own unique ways. I have worked with young students right through to matrics. I can assist with many different subjects and will always have a caring side to try and make sure that you sustain your success. I love my horses and have learnt a lot about my teaching methods from how I train my horses and I put the same care into my students so that they can achieve their greatest successes. I often enjoy trying to find new methods for helping people learn and don’t enjoy using progressive methods of teaching to help my students and to cater to their needs.

Subjects taught
  • Geology

    I have always been passionate about the social sciences. Helping expand students knowledge of the world that surrounds them and how it affects them is a special passion of mine. Geography is so much more to me than meteorology and climatology now but a study of the forces that shape our earth and studying the people that inhabit it. I find it incredibly fascinating and only hope that my passion is passed on a little bit to my students. I have taught geography at highschool level and studied it at university.
