TUTORS

Adele Davey Adele - Language tutor and copy editor

I am passionate about people, cultures and languages and once I’d completed my degree at Stellenbosch University, I spent many years living abroad and teaching foreigners in the UK, Japan and Angola. These experiences have always stayed with me and also taught me so much about different cultures.

More recently I’ve been working with local and foreign students of all ages and levels, assessing their levels, compiling course material and organizing private tuition, group tuition, summer and winter schools in Cape Town.

I’m looking forward to assisting you with your educational needs!

Michael Michael - Computer tutor

I hold a Diploma in IT and am currently working towards various Microsoft Certifications. I believe that anyone who has the desire and determination to try can succeed in IT. My greatest gift is helping people reach their potential and achieve their goals. I feel blessed to be making a difference in the lives of people, something which I never thought I was good at.

It is immensely rewarding to be part of the training process at Far South Tutors and I’m looking forward to working with you.

Scott - Computer tutor

I’ve been involved in I.T. training at all levels and this is without a doubt my passion. I qualified with a Systems Management Diploma, Associate Degree in Computer Studies and various Microsoft accredited courses. My work experience ranges from working for huge corporates to small NGOs. I have been fortunate enough to widen the scope of my I.T. knowledge as I’ve been exposed to both the technical and the management side of I.T. in order to facilitate at any given level. I love speaking!

Lydia DaveyLydia - Afrikaans, English and basic literacy tutor

I was a university lecturer and teacher of Afrikaans for more than 25 years. I also taught private students from beginners to advanced level. In my postgraduate studies I concentrated on language acquisition, second/foreign language teaching, bi- and multilingualism.

I served on textbook selection committees for Afrikaans (Additional language) textbooks, wrote reviews of textbooks, etc., marked and moderated examination papers (Afrikaans as Additional language) for Matric and six colleges of education.

I taught Afrikaans for (H)IGCSE (Cambridge syllabus) and IB and edited and translated articles, theses, books. I taught students from 17 different countries in Swaziland and enjoyed the interaction with people from diverse cultures.
