Jacques De Kock is an Online Tutor at AAA Tutoring – Africa
The opportunities I have been blessed with are truly fantastic and becoming an Online Tutor is a great way for me to share my knowledge and skills.
Having attended 1 of the most prestigious schools in South Africa for my entire school career I was endowed with knowledge, values and life experiences that I wish all could have the opportunity to have.
The best teachers in my life have had some of the greatest impact on me and I look to them as mentors and role models. Being a teacher has opened my eyes, my heart and my world to so much more than I ever expected and it is an honour to be able to teach be it in class or as an Online Tutor. Equally as important as teaching is learning and I plan on doing both until I have no breathe left.
During my time at Grey High School I did Toast Masters and found my love for public speaking. Being able to do public speaking opened many doors for me and I was given the Best Actor Award in 2007. I also completed a voice artistry course after school that many radio DJs, T.V personalities and teachers use.
After school I decided to become an Auctioneer and passed my diploma in auctioneering in Bloemfontein. Again doors were opened and I became an International Art Dealer for the largest art gallery in the world, Park West Gallery.
In and amongst all this I returned to getting my degree in education at Nelson Mandela University where I specialized in Mathematics and Life sciences which I can teach as an Online Tutor. I was invited into the Dean’s Golden Key society as I was applying myself as best I could. I am now confident in teaching grade 7 to grade 10 mathematics and I can teach grade 8 to grade 12 life sciences.
I then returned to my Alma-Ata and taught the above mentioned grades in the corresponding subjects. It was truly invigorating to see what goes on behind the curtain for a school to operate at such a level.
After this I decided to return to being an international art dealer on cruise ships as I missed traveling, connecting with others and teaching people about art and how it helped shape civilization.
I have recently completed my TEFL and I am very excited to be able to have the opportunity to now be teaching English as an Online Tutor to any who are willing to open more doors for themselves.

I look forward to becoming your Online Tutor soon.
