About Me

I have a doctorate degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cape Town, South Africa, whereby I carried out great research on increasing the application of bioenergy production in South Africa's energy mix. In my capacity as a doctoral student, I was the head of the students' chapter of my research group responsible for guiding and steering the activities of all post-grads in the group. My other interests include playing soccer competitively every week and watching it, as I am a fan of Barcelona. Furthermore, I play Scrabble and read motivational books daily to increase my vocabulary and speaking competency.

Tutor Experience

I have over 5 years teaching experience accumulated as a teaching assistant to 1st and 2nd year undergraduates at the University of Cape Town in both the Mathematics department and the Chemical Engineering department. I joined Spires in 2017 and my focus has been tutoring 1st to 3rd Chemical Engineering modules such as Transport Phenomena, Separation Processes, Chemical Engineering Design Numerical Analysis and methods. I have also tutored 1st and 2nd year maths related to differentiation, integration, statistics and Laplace Transform. My approach to tutoring is student-led. My first interaction with a client is understanding his/her background then getting an in depth analysis of why they need a tutor. Armed with this information, I prepare notes and exercises tailored to the client. At the end of each session, I do a quick recap of what we have covered and provide exercises for the client to practice on for the next session.
