Candice A - Tutor in Klippoortjie AH

I am a qualified teacher and have been teaching grade ones for 2 years. I have been tutoring for approximately 6-7 years. As a person I am extremely passionate about children and learning more about them. I feel that the greatest change that could possibly take place in the world is through the children, as they control the future. Being in a position to shape those young minds into critical thinkers is my dream. Children who recognize their potential and understand their own worth will be the ones who change the world. In correlation with this I think that it is essential to shape and develop myself into the best possible person I was born to be in order to manage that responsibility. My intention is not only teaching young children, but to continuously learn and develop myself. I plan to further my studies by doing an honors degree through the University of Pretoria with specialization in child psychology and inclusive education. I am also currently completing an online course in Neuro Linguistic Programming and the Montessori Educators Course.

Subjects taught
  • TEFL

    I have recently completed both my Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL) 160 hour course. Teaching in a school where English was the medium of instruction, many of the children did not come from homes where English was the spoken language. Due to this I have learnt to alter lessons to suit and help those children.

  • Afrikaans

    Afrikaans can be a bit of an overwhelming subject at first - although I have had a lot of success with it with my students. I have used a lot of interesting and fun techniques that I have worked with over time with multiple students to make the key aspects of Afrikaans simpler and easier to retain. I have also found that going back to basics and strengthening the foundations of the key concepts helps.

  • Accountancy

    I have tutored this subject many times and I have found it to be the most rewarding and successful when the students I have worked with have the "light bulb moment", where all of a sudden they grasp a concept that is linked to other concepts. Being a visual learner - I am able to teach in a more visual way, which tends to break down abstract concepts into smaller parts which then make sense.

  • Mathematics Literacy

    I achieved high results for this subject whilst in school and have found it helpful to tackle key aspects of the subject when tutoring it. I find many of the students I have worked with struggle mostly with the financial aspect, this being simple and compound interest, salary scales etc. I was able to break it up and make the seemingly daunting task much more approachable and manageable.

  • English

    At university my major was English, which gave me a higher level of understanding of the subject, as well as a diverse range of ways to study and practice the content and skills required. I have a lot of interesting and fun techniques that I have worked with over time with multiple students to make the key aspects of English simpler and easier to retain.
