Tutoring All Grades

Subjects:

  • All grades R – 3 and grades 4 – 12
  • English, Afrikaans, History, Life Sciences and Consumer Studies

What you are studying:
I am in the third year of my Bachelor of Education (in the Foundation Phase) degree.

Why you decided to tutor:
I decided to tutor because tutoring is not all that different from being a teacher. Furthermore, teaching is a passion of mine which is why when I tutor, my heart is in every session that I have with a learner.

Your funniest tutoring moment:
My funniest tutoring moment was when I was explaining to a learner what the word “seekoei” means in English.

The one thing you can’t do without at a lesson:
I need structure and a plan and to be prepared, therefore, I need to know what I am covering in the lesson so that I can fully lay the groundwork to help the learner. For me, there is nothing worse than coming to a lesson unprepared, and then the session is over with the learner having learnt nothing.
