Caitlyn B - Tutor in Sea Point

Hi! My name is Caitlyn and I am a 23 year old university graduate from Cape Town! I have always been interested in tutoring and I will be completing my postgrad in education at UCT this year, so I would love to put what I learn into practice. I love to read, watch movies and series, listen to music and most importantly travel! I have a deep interest in current events as well as history - which is why I majored in Political Science and History at Stellenbosch University. I have completed my Teaching English in a Foreign Language course (TEFL), so I've got you covered when it comes to grammar! I look forward to meeting you and hopefully helping you out in anyway that I can!

Experience
I graduated from high school in 2015. I took a break from studying and went on gap year in 2016 where I worked as Au Pair for a family in Norway and then as a camp counsellor in Germany. I came back to South Africa and began studying at the University of Stellenbosch in 2017. I graduated with a BA Humanities in 2019. From November 2019 until March 2020 I was working at a ski resort in North Carolina. I am currently enrolled in a 10-week online copy-editing course through UCT and a few other online courses through Coursea and Udemy.

Copy-editing Certificate - UCT (Online)

I completed a Copy-editing course through GetSmarter and UCT. This course lasted 10 weeks and focused on everything to do with editing and the publishing world. This course focused quite heavily on grammar and punctuation.

Subjects taught
  • English as a foreign Language

    I completed my Teaching English in a Foreign Language certifcate at the end of 2019 so I have an understand of how to teach English to students who don't use it as a first language. I would love to put what I learnt in to practice and to help you learn a language that I believe will be very useful to you. I also have ideas of how to make learning a language a bit more fun and up to date!

  • Mathematics Literacy

    I absolutely hated maths throughout school. It was something that never clicked for me and caused many, many tears and upset - so I get it! Then I switched to Maths Lit in Grade 10 and my perspective changed completely. You can actually enjoy maths when it's practical like maths lit is. I ended up getting my highest mark in Matric for Maths Lit, so I believe I would be able to help you. I also come from a place of patience because I completely understand how hard and frustrating maths can be.

  • History

    History is by far one of my all time favourite subjects! I've loved it since I was in grade 7 and ended up majoring in it at university! I think the most important way to get someone to love history is to make it fun, which is exactly what my teachers did at school and what I would hope to do for the students that I tutor. I like to remind people that while history may seem daunting, it's really just about learning a story.

  • English Literature

    I absolutely love to read and English was one of my favourite subjects at school! I love to look for the deeper meaning in any book that I read and love it even more if it's been made into a movie or tv series! I hope to go into editing/ publishing in the book world so this is something I am passionate about.
