Subjects taught
  • Math

    I have completed maths, trigonometry and advanced maths until matric. I truly enjoy maths and see it as the one ‘problem’ that will always have an answer if you just know how to find it. I have experience in tutoring maths and at this stage will only assist up to grade 9.
