Background

My experience spans a period of 5 years. I am currently supervising the research programme for Final Year Masters of Business Leadership students at the Unisa Graduate School for Business Leadership. I also teach English to foreign, adult students on Skype. My current work on a part-time basis also includes tutoring high school learners on a range of subjects excluding Mathematics, Physics and Accountancy. My specialization field is Business Management and its related modules. My Research students over the years have all averaged 70% for their Final Research Reports. I am a patient, experienced teacher with an approach that first determines the learners pre-existing knowledge and learning pace prior to commencing with lessons. I have also lectured at Damelin and TUT. I have taught at least 500 students during this time.
