Subjects taught
  • Math

    Growing up I struggled with Math, especially in High School. The biggest challenge was not being able to grasp concepts and formulas; my Math teachers just couldn't explain Mathematics in a way that I could understand. Once I started studying at University, all the lights went on and I finally understood. I have now successfully taught Mathematics for the past 5 years and have devised clever-to- understand learning methods that make Mathematics fun and achievable. I realise that every child learns uniquely and everyone understands differently. My tutoring techniques are adapted to your learning style. Choose me as your tutor, and Mathematics will become your favourite subject!
