Subjects taught
  • English

    I believe that I am the best candidate to tutor this subject as I have an impeccable primary and high school academic record regarding my English proficiency. I possess a strong vocabulary which is beneficial as a writing and teaching skill. This is compounded by my deep appreciation of the language.

    International Relations is my major and I have obtained distinctions in the subject. I hope to one day become an ambassador and effect policy change where and how it matters. Due to its diverse nature, the subject allows one to pursue various avenues of employment.

  • French

    I obtained a distinction during my first semester of French during varsity. I am multilingual and can therefore translate into one's home language when necessary. Using a familiar language of reference helps students to engage better with the subject matter.

  • Xhosa

    IsiXhosa is my home language, thus making me a native speaker who is well versed in both the formal and informal. Additionally, the primary ethnic language in my province at the time was, and still is, IsiXhosa.

  • Sports & Hobbies

    I played netball, girls' cricket, athletics and swimming throughout my schooling career. I was once senior athletics captain and victrix ludorum. I have a great passion for sports and believe that they teach children vital life survival skills (swimming) and improve reaction times and motor skills from a young age. Sports also build confidence and teach interpersonal skills and teamwork from a young age.

  • History

    I have received a minimum of an A in History throughout my high school years. I appreciate the subject for its ability to develop one's mind towards being able to process large quantities of data. This skill has proven extremely beneficial in my interaction with varsity reading material.
