Experience
I am currently working as a BrightsparkZ Tutor. I have completed their Study Skills training course and am registered as a Concessions Facilitator with them. I completed my degree through Unisa last year and am looking for substitute teaching or private tutoring work. I have volunteered over a number of years as a school librarian, a reading mom, a Grade R assistant, literacy teacher and completed teaching practice at a few schools, both public and private, in order to complete my degree. I am a mature person and have previously had a career as a Bookkeeper, with many years experience in different roles. I find working with young minds a very rewarding and enjoyable experience and take great pleasure in the knowledge that I am truly making a difference in their lives.

Subjects taught
  • Science

    I absolutely love teaching Science to young children. Nature is wonderful and for curious minds it offers so many opportunities to learn about plants, animals and how we impact on our environment. I like a practical, hands on approach to learning.

    Everyone is different and it important for a person to find the best study method that works for themselves.

  • English Language and Literature

    I love reading and helping learners read with confidence and comprehension. Literature is important in the curriculum as it exposes children to different types of texts and various content. It is useful for learner's own creative writing.
