I am a kind and patient person who is invested in your success. I am quiet and considerate and will take the time to work at your own pace for the best results. I love seeing students improve. I have experience as a private tutor for grade 11 and 12 Physics and Mathematics. I was the Dux Scholar at St Mary's School Waverly from grade 8 to grade 12 and I won the Faculty of Humanities Silver Proxime Accessit Medal at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2019 on the completion of my Bachelor of Arts. I also won prizes for Psychology and English in which I majored. I also did first year Mathematics and Physics and first and second year Philosophy. I can tutor high school Mathematics, English, Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, History, AP Mathematics, and AP English as well as undergraduate English and Psychology. I can also provide help with academic writing.

I have experience in creative and academic writing at which I excel. I know what makes a good academic essay and can pass on tips and advice. I love writing and I hope I can pass on this passion to those I teach. If not, however, I can help people to drastically improve their writing skills in terms of vocabulary, grammar, and structure.
