Koketso M - Tutor in Edenvale

I'm a qualified professional with two competing passions, law and teaching. I'm a University of Pretoria alumni with two degrees in counting. Now that we have that out of the way, I grew up in Hammanskraal, talk about humble beginnings. I started tutoring History and Maths Literacy in high school and at Varsity I was employed as a tutor for two years in the department of Jurisprudence where I primarily taught jurisprudence, introduction to law and research. I've successfully represented the University of Pretoria in two major moot court competitions both nationally and internationally, so I guess you can say I've earned my stripes. I love my soccer more than my coffee. In a nutshell, I bring tutoring experience and skill, exceptional work ethic and passion to help you succeed.
