Shereen Y - Tutor in Bryanston

Hello there! My name is Shereen Younis. I have recently graduated in a Bachelor of Laws with distinction from the University of Pretoria. As a new graduate, I am interested in broadening my horizons and expanding on my experiences before beginning work as a potential lawyer. I decided that the best way to do this would be to embark on the adventure of tutoring. The reason why I chose this path is that I have always had a passion for wanting to help others and I can do this by teaching them. I feel as though I would be suited for this job as it requires good interpersonal skills, which I have gained through past experiences such as my involvement in the United Nations Association of South Africa, Pretoria Chapter (UNASA). With UNASA we interacted with children who had no knowledge of their rights and provided them with further insight regarding their rights. We played different games and completed different exercises to teach them these rights. I can tutor young children as well as high school learners and university students (law modules). I am a very fun and bubbly person but I make sure I reach my objectives. I am easy going and understanding which I feel would make me a suitable tutor.
