About Tutor

I am a master student from South Africa. Before going to university i myself struggled with English. Therefore, i am passionate to teach languages to others, especially my beautiful home language, Afrikaans.

Experience

Although I didn't study teaching, i do view myself as a teacher. After finishing high school, i tutored a grade 5 student who was struggling with Afrikaans and maths, her marks improved drastically, in that I made learning fun for her.

Teaching Approach

My approach is based on preferred approach. I believe we all learn differently, therefore, i will create a teaching plan that best suits each student.
