Subjects taught
  • Natural Sciences

    Natural Sciences have always fascinated me and I was very good at it when I was at school. I have a passion for science in general and being able to learn new concepts is very important. It gives us a better understanding of how we function.

  • Geography

    I studied Geology at university and it was one of my favourite subjects. Geography Is very similar because you get to learn about how the world and the universe works. On top of that you get to understand how people live and how we as humans function with the environment.
