Remedial Therapist & Specialised Private Tutor

KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Online tuition available for domestic and international learners

Are you tired of hearing your children complain that they don't understand what's going on? Is school “boring”? Are your youngsters unmotivated, underachieving, and frustrated? Send them to me. Whether they are ‘A’ students or are just scraping by, I will work with them to improve their competence and build their self-esteem.


  • I have 47 years’ expertise in teaching, motivating and inspiring learners.
  • I am thoroughly qualified and specialised in crucial subjects (English, Afrikaans, History, Speech & Drama), as well as other language- based subjects, from prep to matric. I am equally driven to help high performers secure several ‘A’s, as well as to boost slower learners’ abilities.
  • I manage learners’ schedules effectively, by prioritising their focus around tests, projects & exams.
  • I am passionate about unleashing potential, to build insight and understanding whilst producing top academic results.
  • I customise each lesson to the needs of every learner, to ensure that assignments are well understood and executed accurately.
  • I am charismatic, personable and approachable. I provoke enthusiasm and energy among my learners, and approach learning & attention difficulties empathetically.
  • I am creative and versatile, and apply strong analytical and problem-solving acumen to address learning difficulties, and to expand the horizons of gifted learners.
  • I have extensive counselling experience and provide every learner with understanding and confidentiality.
