I am a private Tutor for Grades 1 - 7 learners. I have found that, being an older, mature Tutor has given me the diligence and patience to work with younger children who often struggle with concepts and foundation level learning, like handwriting practice and general repetition. To my delight, I have been making great progress with my Montessori learners.
I provide a dual medium tutoring service to Primary School Learners in all subjects, and English and Afrikaans to High School Learners. My tutoring services include homework support, test and examination preparation, and review of the previous and current week's teaching scope. I am a qualified X-Skills Tutor.
I provide one-hour sessions on a one-to-one basis, either at the learner's school, afterschool, or the convenience of their own home. The parents can choose how often per week they require tutoring for their children.
To supplement my Tutoring income, I work as a freelancer, using my skills to provide a copywriting, proofreading, typesetting and translation service.

I have worked for, or contributed to:

  • Denel
  • MTN South Africa
  • LGR Telecommunications (and later still for Adapt IT, who, through a buisness acquisition, bought LGR outright).

My skills include:

  • Tutoring and Adult Learning
  • Business writing
  • Typesetting, office administration and reception


I hold a BA degree from UP, have completed various creative and business writing courses, and most recently, courses associated with the Professional Editors Group (PEG) under guidance of John Linnegar.
