Promoting Quality Teaching and Learning through community development, relevant research, appropriate practice and sound Biblical Exegesis. 

 

Born in Piet Retief, Mpumalanga in 1988 to two loving parents and two caring older siblings. I completed my schooling in Piet Retief and was the first Indian/Black student in the local and previously staunch, white-only Primary school. Through the years I have travelled to Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Hong Kong and the USA teaching and serving with an organization called YWAM. In 2009, I founded the NPO 'The Meira Football Academy' which had as its core function improving the lives of children through Football.  

After completing my BEd, I moved to Cape Town, SA. It's here that I noticed the massive injustices that are still prevalent in the majority of our schools and neighbourhoods. These Educational injustices can be explained by severe inequalities between the poor (usually black) and the rich, and a strange Economic dependance on Neoliberalism & Capitalism, which only furthers these inequalities.
My experiences have made me realise that South Africa's segregated past has played a vital role in our current situation and cannot simply be forgotten or erased.

I successfully completed my Honours in Educational Management (Cum Laude) in 2017 and my Bachelors of Theology degree in 2018 and have now set my mind to improving the level of teaching and learning and rectifying the above mentioned injustices, first in my own context, then beyond. I am also currently in the process of completing my Masters in the Educational Policy, Leadership & Change stream at UCT (University of Cape Town). 

I have experience creating content for and tutoring in the Cambridge curriculum (IGCSE to Full A Level). For information on tutoring and curriculum content/resources please contact me.

As of October 2017, I have been in the employ of a school in Plumstead, Cape Town - John Graham Primary. Happily married since March 2014 with one handsome little son. I enjoy writing, reading, History, Apologetics, Debating, Comparative Religious Studies, Football and of course Teaching!
