Seamus d - Tutor in Paulshof

Good Day, My name is Seamus du Plessis and I am 25 years old. I have my honours degree in BCom (Hons) Business Management & my undergraduate degree in BCom Marketing Management. I currently work as a data analyst, but due to lockdown, I am unable to work full-time. I am hoping that I will be able to use my skills and knowledge to help empower young students. I have many years tutoring experience with a wide range of different aged students. I am passionate about learning and the importance of education. Tutoring allows me to help students realize their full potential and build self-confidence. Asides from work, learning and tutoring - I enjoy spending my time playing sports, gaming and I love the outdoors and wild-life. I am happy to tutor online over this lockdown period and help ease the load on parent's who are struggling to balance work and their kids schooling needs. Please reach out if you would like my CV or if I can be of assistance to you. Kind regards, Seamus du Plessis

Data Analyst

Currently a data analyst with skills within the Google Marketing Platform (Google Analytics, Data Studio, Optimize and Tag Manager etc.), Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Excel & PowerPoint – I pride myself on identifying and delivering insights in order to drive growth. I completed my BCom Marketing Management degree at the University of Johannesburg. I furthered my studies in 2018 with a postgraduate honour’s degree in Business Management with a marketing direction, through UNISA. I made this decision as I am determined to further my skills so that I meet the expectations of my future employers. I work well under pressure and enjoy challenging work that pushes me out of my comfort zone. I am passionate, resilient, determined and always willing to learn. I pride myself on being a responsible person who adheres to all deadlines. I am an outgoing person and I enjoy interacting with a variety of people. I am a good listener and I am good at following instructions, but I can acknowledge my limits - I know when to ask for help.
