Rethea M - Tutor in Spitskop Small Holdings

I am a second year student coming from Bloemfontein in the Free State. I love working with people, and therefore decided that I wanted to study Audiology, which entails helping people with hearing losses by supplying them with hearing aids and aural rehabilitation. I excelled in all of my school subjects. During my first year as an audiology student at the University of Pretoria, I studied various of modules, such as Psychology as well as communication pathology, which was centered around one very important topic: a child's language and communication development, their brain function as well as their interactions with their surroundings. I am extremely passionate about children and I tend to relate to children in a way that not many people can. I have an extremely broad understanding of how children should be stimulated when still young. I am also educated on child directed speech, aiding a child to learn language or concepts faster and more effectively.

Subjects taught
  • Mathematics

    The reason why I would only be able to do primary schools, is because I have not done matric Mathematics in two years, although I did quite good with Mathematics. I can still recall all the mathematical rules and concepts, and would therefore be able to assist younger learners.

    I received best marks in my year group for English. I am passionate about the liyerature and very creative when it comes to writing essays. I can also easily understand grammar concepts. I read a tremendous amount of English books and I study in English, although my home language is Afrikaans.

  • Biology

    Once again, a subject which I excelled in. This is probably one of my favourite subjects, as I am an avid hiker and always try to spend my free time close to nature. I also took anatomy and physiology for the past two years on university level, so I have been studying various biological material in much greater detail and volumes.

  • Afrikaans

    Once again, I received best marks for Afrikaans in my year group. I am very passionate about languages in general and find ideas and concepts relating to language very easy to convey and understand. I enjoy poetry, and find it very healing and relaxing to write in my free time.
