I have always been interested in the way children learn and believe that learning is not a one-size-fits-all process. As a graduate of the University of the Witwatersrand (Bachelor of Arts, Postgraduate Certificate in Education and Honours in Educational Psychology), I have worked part-time as a private tutor, full-time class teacher and facilitator at King David Primary School (Linksfield), Japari School and Bellavista School as well as a Remedial Therapist at Therapyworx in Bedfordview. I therefore have the added understanding of the optimal emotional, cognitive and educational development of the learner in his or her environment. I have completed the Award in Literacy and Dyslexia from Bellavista.
