Elmie E - Tutor in Northcliff

Determination, dedication and ambition. These qualities are the key to success. In 2018 I matriculated with 5 distinctions and received an overall average of 82%. There was only one way to get these marks, and it was through hard work. I had to spend hours and hours behind my Mathematic books to raise my mark from 60% to 80% in the time frame of one year. This strong work ethic of mine eventually paid off, since I received a distinction in Mathematics. After my graduation, I did a pre-medical course in Berlin which prepared me for entrance examinations at various universities around Europe. Through my dedication, ambition and determination did I get accepted at no less than three universities for Medicine. I am very excited to start my studies at the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences in September this year. Meanwhile, I am striving to help young aspiring students reach their potential by assisting with subjects such as Physical Science, Life Science, Mathematics, German, English and Afrikaans.

I graduated in matric with 5 distinctions and received 77% for my other two subjects. Thereafter, did I do a pre-medical course in Berlin for 4 months, which prepared me to write obligatory examinations for various universities in Europe. I am proud to say that I got accepted at 3 out of 5 universities for Medicine. I am very excited to start my studies in September at the Lithuanian University of Health Science. Through my education have I gained a lot of knowledge and experience. I would love to share both with scholars who have difficulty in the following subjects: Afrikaans, English, German, Math, Biology and Physical Science.

Subjects taught
  • Biology

    Mitochondria. Adenosine triphosphate. Medulla Oblongata. These words may sound difficult, but as an aspiring medical student (starting in September), I will be able to explain each concept simply and help students discover the myriad of facts, theories and hypotheses that Biology holds.

  • Mathematics

    Although I graduated with 80% for Mathematics, it only came with hard work. In the time frame of 1 year I raised my marks from 60% to 80%. Given this information, it is clear that I do not only have a strong work ethic, but I will also understand the perspective of students struggling with Mathematics. Conclusively, I will be able to help students reach their best mark possible.

  • Afrikaans

    Afrikaans, it may not be an old language but it is by far the most beautiful (not being biased at all). Since Afrikaans is my home language and I have graduated with 88% for Afrikaans Home Language on a IEB level, it is clear that I will be very good at teaching the strange grammar explaining difficult concepts, helping with word pronunciation and explaining difficult concepts.

  • English

    English was not only my best subject in high school, but also my favourite. I graduated with 90% on IEB level in matric. Thereafter, I did a pre-medical course which was conducted in English. This course broadened my knowledge, but also cofirmed my love for the English language. To substantiate this point, I have a strong aptitude for languages and I will study in English. Thus, it is clear that I will be able to help students learn the language of the world!

  • Physical Science

    Physics and Chemistry is commonly seen as part of the most difficult subjects in school. Truth be told, it probably is but it can be explained very simply. I am an aspiring Medical student who have had these subjects as part of my pre-medical course in the beginning of 2019. It was up to me to gain as much knowledge as possible in both these subjects, in order to write examinations which would decide my destiny as a future doctor. Luckily, with the help of great teachers did I do so good in my tests that I was offered a place at 3 universities for Medicine in Europe. I would love to share my knowledge with students and help them explore the wonderful world of Physical Science.
