Environmental scientist offering biology and geography lessons for primary and high school students in Johannesburg.

Methodology

I approach each lesson on the topic provided that the students are having difficulty with and I try to find ways to explain it in simple terms. I try to create analogies so that students can associate and remember their work more easily by linking it to an analogy.

Background

I have been giving lessons for three years. I lectured and tutored university students both in person and online. I have taught over 300. Most of my students were studying science degrees or had science subjects at school, these students completed their degrees and took up post graduate studies.
