BEng Mechanical engineering graduate offering lessons up to varsity level maths(calculus) and physics at the University of Pretoria

Methodology

My teaching methods correspond to the type of learner/s I am tutoring. I believe every learner is unique and hence understand at their own pace or unique study method that suits them. I go an extra mile in order to accommodate every learner's way of learning.

Super Tutor

Pfano is one of our best tutors. High-quality profile, qualifications verified, organised and responsive to lesson requests, and appreciated by their students.

Background

Pfano's CV

In 2015, I realized the need for tutors in my area (Limpopo). I then decided to volunteer to assist matriculants in maths and science. It was this experience that inspired an idea to start a non-profit organisation (VTA) specializing in tutoring high school learners. This tutoring organisation has proven to be a success by consistently producing excellent results since its existence. I am currently the leader of this life-changing organisation which host annual winter classes from grade 8 to 12.

I passed my matric with four distinctions with an average of 86.2 %.

Interview with Pfano

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your subject and in private tutoring?
Pfano β€” My desire to tutor physics and mathematics dates back to 2014 when I was tasked with voluntary tasks to help my local community academy. It was then when I realised the joy I find in imparting knowledge into hungry minds.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Pfano β€” I really enjoy teaching mathematics, physics and thermodynamics. As an engineer, I have been exposed to so much knowledge and I have fallen in love with these subjects in the process.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models? Perhaps a teacher that inspired you?
Pfano β€” I grew up looking up to my parents who are still such an inspiration to me. Both my parents were teachers, teaching came naturally to me.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Pfano β€” I think what makes a good tutor is a love for the subject, someone who is in love with a certain subject finds it easy to explain to others. Secondly, a good tutor must have great interpersonal skills. I believe each learner is unique and therefore needs to be treated accordingly. Accommodating learners requires someone who is patient and passionate about teaching.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Share an anecdote related to your subject or your school days.
Pfano β€” In my final year of studies, I was tasked with research on the feasibility of a parabolic trough solar collector in South African regions. I fell in love with the topic so much I decided to build my own solar system whose aim is the production of crispy chips using only the sun's energy. I am still working on improving this innovative system whose success would greatly benefit the local community.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or are still facing at school?
Pfano β€” The most challenging period of my school days was when I lost my bursary. I struggled financially until my grades improved, getting my sponsorship in the process.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general, an element of this particular subject, or something completely different?
Pfano β€” I am most passionate about teaching, teaching makes me feel a sense of purpose. As challenging as it may be, I really enjoy overcoming all the challenges that come with it.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof?
Pfano β€” I think what makes me a Superprof is my desire to make a change through education. I am always willing to go the extra mile to help my learners.
