Hi there, I am a South African female with various University Degrees. I lived in George for the past seven years where I was a Mental Health Counselor for FAMSA. I am now in Cape Town (Somerset West) since my husband's company moved us to Cape Town. I have the following degrees: BA Communications and Psychology BA Honours Psychology MSc Clinical Psychology I am currently busy with my Doctorate degree in Psychology and am busy with my thesis. Before counseling I was a recruitment consultant for fourteen years. During my recruitment and counseling years I was responsible now and again for teaching short courses. I am looking to tutor University Students or High School Students depending of the subjects. I am also very good with research and academic writing and am willing to help proof read Masters' theses.
