Jilly M - Tutor in Pretoria

I became involved in tutoring when my daughter first experienced learning challenges during her schooling, some 15 years ago. Since then I have tutored both in a private capacity and at home school facilities, and at both the primary and high school levels. My high school subjects include Maths, Maths Lit, Life Science and Geography. For the past 18 months I have been a tutor at a primary school centre for children with a range of learning issues such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia and CP. My function has been to provide 1-on-1 tuition to any Grade 4 - 7 child who has required specialized assistance in any subject. I thus have a comprehensive knowledge of the current syllabi in all subjects for these Grades. I have also assisted - but do not have a great deal of experience in - Foundation Phase learning. I identify easily with children and young people, and find that they feel very comfortable with me. It is truly thrilling to be involved in the process of imparting a love of learning to today's youth!

Private Tutor

I first began tutoring in a private capacity about 10 years ago when learners came to my home for extra lessons in Maths and Life Science. I am still tutoring these subjects - as well as Geography and languages - through a registered tutoring agency. I am experienced in tutoring Maths, Life Science and Geography at high school level; and all subjects at the primary school level.

B,Sc Agric Horticultural Science - University of Natal Pietermaritzburg

My degree in Agriculture gave me a thorough grounding in the areas of Life Science, Geography and Maths. I have found that my knowledge and appreciation of the field allows me to impart a love of learning to contemporary learners who require a better understanding of these subjects, or who wish to improve their marks.
