Social Work Intern (2017-2019)
As part of our field practice, we were required to intern at our respective agencies, whereby we not only provided social work services, but also immersed ourselves in the community. During my second year of study I was placed at Rosewood Primary School in Bonteheuwel and during my third and fourth years at the International School of Cape Town. At both schools I was required to intervene at all 3 levels, namely casework, groupwork and community work and submitted comprehensive reports to the university supervisor who continuously evaluated our performance and report writing.
Academic Tutor (February 2016-current)
I tutor high school learners on a private basis, in my most subjects, however, I have a keen interest in teaching English and the Social Sciences. Other tasks include writing essays, editing assignments and preparation for the upcoming examinations.
UCT Tutor (July 2019-September 2019)
I was selected to tutor two groups of UCT first-year Social Development students. My main tasks included; preparing for the tuts that occur twice a week, facilitating the two-hour tut groups, marking assignments as well as preparing the students for their practical exams.

I have personally had Chelsea as my tutor for a few years and I believe she is one of the best teachers I have experienced. Not only is she a lovely, approachable person, it is clear to me that she has a lot of experience - she is very helpful and knows how to help the student where and when needed. Although she is my academic tutor, her great social work skills played a huge role during our lessons, giving me great advice as well as helping me deal with stress. Additionally, with social work being her specialty, Chelsea is currently helping me with my science expo project on mental health. Ultimately, Chelsea is a great committed tutor and I would highly recommend her.
Chelsea is a reliable, well-spoken, and caring teacher.
She has worked as a private tutor for the past few years and is currently studying an honours programme at UCT.
She has created a network of students that use her for tutoring frequently, all from recommendations. Through being understanding and adapting to a teaching style that is unique for each student, they have all achieved exceptional results.
I have worked with Chelsea in the past and she has never let me down, always exceeding my expectations.
She would make a wonderful addition to Superprof and would be a real asset.
