I hold an Honours degree in plant science and a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Chemistry and Biology. I have extensive working experience teaching within the University of the Free State (UFS), starting in 2016 when I worked as a student laboratory assistant for the department of chemistry. 2017 I was an Intern at the National Research Foundation at UFS Qwaqwa campus; in 2018, I was a Teaching Assistant for the Center of Teaching and Learning and volunteered as a facilitator for the inorganic module under the chemistry department. All of the positions mentioned above required the management of students' academic progress through various tests, assignments, pre-practical exercises, and practical reports. As the inorganic facilitator, I used Blackboard and Turnitin as tools for teaching and assessing. During my tenure at UFS 101, I was selected as a diligent teaching assistant in duties' performance. I have participated in training workshops such as academic advising, time management, project management, and the importance of mental health and stress management. These roles have involved working with different stakeholders (Students, academics, and support staff). I can teach students of different learning levels and this has allowed me to refine my skills through diverse teaching while maintaining a focused class and productive classroom and encouraging collaborative learning to enhance their learning experience. My teaching methods make use of inquiry-based learning which is an approach to learning that encourages an active role from the student. I also make use of virtual platform teaching tools to stimulate creativity and critical thinking in my students. In my class, I encourage learners to participate, explore, ask questions and share ideas.
Constant engagement with a teacher, practice, and language use.
