I am a qualified and experienced teacher who completed a Bachelor of Business Science degree with Honours in Economics in 2001, and a Master of Business Science degree in Economics in 2006. My second major is in Psychology. I also hold a PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) specialising in teaching Mathematics, Mathematical Literacy, and Economics to Senior Phase and Further Education and Training students. I completed all 3 of my qualifications at UCT. My love of teaching began whilst I was at UCT. I was actively involved with the tutoring of undergraduate and postgraduate Economics students for over 6 years, and was the Head Tutor for the Honours Econometrics module for five years. I also assisted with the marking of tests, exams and projects. Having completed my Masters Degree, I worked as an Economist for a number of years doing academic research and also doing economics consulting work. However, the teaching profession was calling me and so I decided to take a break from the economics consulting work in order to register for a PGCE, which is the required qualification to become a teacher. During my teaching diploma I specialised in teaching Mathematics, Mathematical Literacy, and Economics to high school learners. I received a distinction for both of my teaching practicals, and was rated within the top 5% of students by my supervisors. I have worked in both public and private schools, which means I have a thorough knowledge of the requirements for NSC, IEB and Cambridge AS and A-levels. I have always been a patient, caring and compassionate educator who takes a great interest in her learners' progress and in their mastery of the subject. My enthusiasm for teaching and my ability to explain difficult concepts translates into a deeper understanding of the topic by my learners, resulting in a greater sense of capability, more positive outlook and significantly improved grades in my learners. My greatest sense of achievement comes from helping learners who are struggling with a subject, building their confidence, understanding and technique in the subject, and then watching them excel. I have a particular gift for working with students who have learning disorders, especially dyslexia, dyscalculia and ADD/ADHD, as well as learners with developmental disorders, particularly those with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Having said that, and knowing the importance of understanding a learner's diagnosis, I feel very strongly that a learner should not let these diagnoses define themselves. That only leads to a sense of despondency, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and prevents a learner from what they are truly capable of achieving.
