Kaj H - Tutor in Fourways

Hello My name is Kaj Hall. I 25 years old and I have completed a BSc in Physics and BA in Psychology. I have spent the past three years accumulating over 1100 hours of private one-on-one lessons through Genius Premium Tuition, but have since left to pursue a private career. I am currently planning to complete my honors and masters in Psychology within the next 2 years before I begin practicing. Through my tutoring experience I have tutored English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Afrikaans, NBT, SAT, and coaching of skills that are relevant to being a successful student. I have over 420 hours tutoring foundation phase clients as early as Grade 3 and I am familiar with GDE, IEB, CIE, IB, and the UK syllabus.
