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.
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.
MELT VAN DER SPUY SMITH
Herewith an overview of my experience in my professional career.
Matriculated 1981 in Pretoria, Afrikaans Hoër Seunskool. Further studies at Technikon Pretoria and Technical Colleges, Pretoria west, Verwoerd burg and Polokwane.
Am a fair but strict person, a doer and not a talker.
Being in Management positions from nineties and my own business, I have excellent Technical Knowledge and Managing Skills. This include the following.
Target setting, Development planning, interacting with staff, Admin and technical, Training, OHS act, System implementation, Budgets, problem solving and Disciplinary matters.
In 2013 moving back to Limpopo I decided to dedicate myself to lecturing and training of young persons after identifying the lack of knowledge and skills. One person can not change the situation but it is a start. I have excellent knowledge, skills and experience to equip the youth of South Afrika.
