Teunis S - Tutor in Onder Papegaaiberg

I am a process engineer with a love of maths and science. I want to share that passion with young people and inspire as many people as possible. I believe that anybody can master the principles of maths and science if they're given the background and the chance to do so. I enjoy learning about scientific concepts such as relativity, quantum mechanics, and super string theory. I also practice kenjutsu, iaijutsu and jujutsu, and am an amateur astronomer.

Subjects taught
  • Physical Science

    Physical science is often explained as a series of disconnected concepts which are not very well connected to the reality it is meant to describe. My goal is to show these concepts in terms of the physical reality which they describe and why the maths underlying the concepts works.

  • Mathematics

    I believe that maths is a subject which can be mastered by anyone. Usually when someone is struggling with maths, there is a piece of knowledge or understanding further back in the syllabus. My goal is to find those gaps and fill them so that any student can master any topic.
