Siobhan M - Tutor in Pomona

Everyone, even the smartest and brightest, needs help sometimes, and that is okay and as a result, I want to offer my experiences and advice wherever possible. My favourite subjects in high school were English, Geography and History and on a good day, I enjoyed Maths. I truly believe it is impossible to simply replicate someone else's approach to studying or doing anything because each individual is unique. My strongest asset has always been my personalized advice and empathy towards others that allows me to find the best solution for them. I participated in various public speaking and debating competitions, therefore I really feel that my strength lies within my ability to communicate effectively and efficiently. Above all, I like to integrate fun into life and will include this in sessions to ensure that the learning process is both enjoyable and memorable. As a tutor, my goal is to untangle any academic problem we encounter together and build a connection with you (the student) at the same time.

Subjects taught
  • Mathematics

    As someone who is VERY much used to going through the difficult and frustrating process of learning a mathematical concept for the first time, I know how great it feels to finally have something click. Although it's not exactly the same, helping a student reach this understanding does give me a similar satisfaction. At the same time, I can't help but want to try and dispel the notion that "maths is hard."

  • Afrikaans

    I have always enjoyed languages and being English, I thought there was no better way to improve my Afrikaans, than to marry someone Afrikaans. We are a completely bilingual household, and my own children are fluent in both English and Afrikaans, so I am able to assist with both their Afrikaans first and second language schoolwork.

  • English

    English was one of my favourite subjects in high school and as a result, it was one of my majors at University. I also love reading and helping others improve their writing. I believe that with strong language skills, you are more equipped for the world once you finish school.
