About Rumbi

I believe I possess the key qualities one needs to progress in life. These are knowledge, motivation, confidence, integrity and humility. I strive to achieve excellence in everything that I do and see challenges as an opportunity to thrive.
I firmly believe that you can accomplish anything if you have clarity, total commitment and a willingness to put in the hard work necessary to achieve your goals. It terms of tutoring, I believe I was born to teach and started doing it at an early age. I would tutor my younger siblings and it gave me so much joy to see them succeed as it does now. I love acquiring knowledge and passing it one to others. I don't believe there's such a thing as being un teachable. It just takes the right kind of teacher to reach even the most difficult student and that's what I am.
Having lived in Zimbabwe, United Kingdom, South Africa and now the United States, I have gained experience in working with people from diverse cultures which is an asset with regards to communicating and understanding people from different walks of life.

I am a biochemist by profession. I obtained my biochemistry degree at London Metropolitan University in the UK where I graduated with honors. I majored in immunology, physiology, toxicology, molecular biology, microbiology as well as genetics.
I specialized further by undertaking a Master's degree in biotechnology where the focal point of my studies was obesity and diabetes. My research focused on using proteomics to not only diagnose but treat obesity. I worked with nanotechnology, genetic engineering as well as animals as part of my research.

My scientific background has equipped me with knowledge and research skills that can be applied in every sphere of life. I would love to pass on these skills to anyone whose willing to go on this amazing scientific journey with me. A teacher can have all the knowledge in the world but if they don't have heart and passion, that doesn't amount to much. I posses not only the knowledge but the heart and passion as well!
The strength of a country is not in its wealth but in the knowledge of its people. With that in mind, my aspiration is to empower people through education with the intention of helping them to realize that they have the power to better their lives, regardless of their background and circumstances.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Genetics

I have a BSc Hons degree in Biochemistry from London Metropolitan University as well as a Master's degree in Biotechnology. I majored in Genetics, Molecular Biology, Advanced Molecular Biology, Biotechnology as well as other genetics-related subjects.

Physical Science

I've studied both physical science at college level where I more than excelled in the subject area. I also have experience tutoring physical science. If one can understand the basic concepts of physics such as Newton's laws, it's easy to solve any physical science problems.
