I have worked for global organisations which allowed me to expand my skill set and developed my career to reach elevated levels of success. I have also worked with emerging markets and have successfully developed business in key markets across Africa with exposure in over 25 countries world-wide.”
I have developed and grown a brand from new entrant to a point of leadership in an emerging market. Now leading at 1 market share beating the likes of global giants Samsung and LG to name a few.
“My passion for helping others has led me into career paths where I found myself using my superior interpersonal and communication skills to foster meaningful relationships with students and parents in the schooling environment and with employees in the working environment. I am a professional and caring educator with a solid commitment to the social and academic growth of every student. My aim is to ensure that all learners become successful at what they choose to pursue. I am committed to creating a classroom atmosphere that is stimulating, encouraging and adaptive to the varied needs of students.”
I have fostered the culture of entrepreneurship through a program I headed, which was funded by the Jumpstart foundation, in which many of my students who were entered into the foundation’s competition, went on to start their own businesses which were funded with the prize money, many of which have grown and are still successfully trading today.

I have dedicated myself to becoming a life-long educator and learner, and I strive to instill a similar desire in all my students. My teaching strategy of the mathematics curriculum is using a problem-solving contextual approach to develop understanding, reasoning and relation to reality thus revolving around a quote by Albert Einstein, “Pure Mathematics is in its way the poetry of logical ideas.”
