Mechanical Engineering was my life, but after identifying lack of skills I committed myself to teaching and tutoring at Colleges, High Schools

Methodology

My teaching methodology is to teach and identifying needs were there is, little or no understanding I would take practical examples were possible and join into the lesson, class or workshop to give a better understanding. If there are still individuals with problems I will then do one on one teaching. My satisfaction is to see a understanding learner or student.

Background

I am in the Engineering field, National Technical Diploma, (Mechanical and Electrical), work as Technician, Maintenance Head, Company Engineer, Factory Engineer, Own Business. Teaching at ZUREL BROS. FET College and then Head of the Engineering Training at Bokoni Platinum Mines. Teaching and Tutoring at High schools in Polokwane. Have a passion to teach. I have excellent knowledge and skills to equip younger persons.
