Subjects taught
  • Science

    I have always had a passion for science and find it to be the most endlessly fascinating subject. I absolutely adored science in primary school and even continued further with it up until the end of school. I believe science can be enjoyed by everyone if they just give it a chance.

  • General Maths & Science

    I have always loved mathematics and science. They are things that have always made sense to me. I achieved a high mark for physics and maths in school and even almost considered continuing with maths into university. I come from a history of mathematics with my father having become a maths teacher at the early age of only 19. I would love the opportunity to make someone else fall in love with maths and science and see that it is not something to be scared of but something to be enjoyed.

  • History of Art

    I love art history so much. It has always been a passion of mine so much so that I very nearly studied fine art before deciding to study politics and philosophy instead. I excelled at art receiving over 90% for my practical exam and 89% for my final year mark. I also minored in Art History at university. I would love to help teach someone the endlessly fascinating history of art and artists by contextualising their work within their own time and place.

  • English as a foreign Language

    I have always loved the English language. It is my mother tongue and the language I have a passion for. I excelled at English in high school and received over 90% for it in my final year. I enjoyed it so much that I pursued it in university by studying an etymology course for a year during my Bachelors degree. I then went on to complete a 320 hour in person and online course and received an advanced certificate for teaching English as a foreign language. I would love to help someone fall in love with the language that I love so much.

  • History

    History has always been my passion. It was a subject I excelled at in high school where i received over 90% in matric. History taught me to look at the world differently and helped to shape the person I am today. It taught me how to structure my thoughts and ideas and arguments as well as logically formalise them. It taught me how to write a coherent essay and how best to share ideas in both an opinionated and non-opinionated way. I would love to show someone how history could help them see the world in a new light as well as prepare them for the writing that comes with any university degree.

    I have always loved the English language and have always excelled in the subject with English being one of my highest scoring marks in high school. I have always loved writing be it formal, informal, creative writing, letter writing or even just basic sentence construction.

University also taught me how best to write essays and I feel very capable imparting that knowledge on to someone else.
