Gabriella T

Protea Valley, Cape Town

My name is Gabriella Tottle. I recently graduated cum laude from Stellenbosch University with a Bachelor of Education degree. I specialised in the intermediate and senior phase, while majoring in the subjects of Social Science and Natural Science. However, even though these are my specialisation subjects, I am still able to teach the prescribed subjects as required for Gr 4-9 and have had experience teaching all school subjects during my practicals while studying and through my four (almost five) years of tutoring. I am very strong academically, having been in the top 3 Intermediate and Senior Phase students in all my years of studying at Stellenbosch University. I have also received the Golden Key award for my academic achievements during my studies. I am a very hard working, punctual, organised, responsible and a respectable young lady, who is always prepared to go the extra-mile. I am a very patient person who will try many approaches to allow a learner to understand their work. I am an individual who has a love for knowledge and enjoys inspiring others to develop their own love for learning. I do not only believe that learners must focus on knowledge from a textbook but be exposed to knowledge elsewhere as well. Whether it be interesting facts, general knowledge or knowledge based on interests. I believe that everyone has the ability to learn and succeed and believe that learning should be fun. Despite my experience of teaching gained through my observations and school practicum, I have been involved in tutoring learners, throughout my years of studying. Through my practicals and tutoring experience, I have worked with learners who have ADHD, verbal dyspraxia, impaired hearing, poor levels of concentration and overall learners who struggle to understand content in a school setting. I have tutored learners from varying grades, such as: Gr. 1, Gr. 2, Gr. 4, Gr. 5, Gr. 6, Gr. 7, Gr. 8 and Gr. 9. The majority of these learners I have worked and am still working with over periods of two too three years. My tutoring includes help with homework and assistance in projects or tasks. I have also been involved in helping learners to study and prepare for their examinations. This would include teaching them about ways to study, how to create a study timetable and how to break down one’s content so that it is not overwhelming. My work experience, thus far, has also given me the opportunity to discover methods of teaching that are exciting and work for learners with barriers to learning. Most importantly, I have learnt how to ensure that learners enjoy learning and develop a thirst for knowledge just as I have.

Joshua B

Rondebosch, Cape Town

Hi there! My name is Josh. I am a 22 year old medical student at the University of Cape Town. I have a strong academic background with the credentials to prove it: I was Dux Scholar of my high school (Uplands College) in 2015 with an average of 89%; achieved 7 distinctions (including 95% for Mathematics, 93% for Physical Sciences and 90% for both Geography and Biology); achieved provincial colours for Maths (2014); and was named on the IEB's Commendable Achiever's List (2015). At university, I have continued to thrive academically, and I have been named on the Dean's Merit List (which is given in recognition of consistent academic excellence). I am passionate about learning new things and, during my studies at UCT, I have completed courses in Philosophy, Engineering, Biology, Economics and Accounting, however my real interests lie in the Health Sciences. I have two years of tutoring experience, having initially started tutoring orphaned children at the South African Children's Home in Cape Town. I have since gone on to tutor high school students at prestigious Cape Town schools. As a lifelong student, I am constantly investigating new methods of studying to keep things interesting and, more importantly, to make my study techniques more effective and efficient. I am a firm believer of the fact that how you learn is just as important as what you learn, and I'd love to share some of my techniques with you, should you decide to choose me as your tutor. Despite everything you have just read about me, I am not completely obsessed with academics - I am still a regular guy who enjoys having fun, joking around and making tutoring sessions engaging and interesting. So if any of this sounds like what you are looking for, feel free to contact me and we can book a tutoring session!
