I am Keith Williams and have been a medical, research technologist for over 26 years. During this time I have held positions initially at Tygerberg Hospital and later at the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC). While employed at these institutions, I had the privilege to hold workshops in many maths and science related disciplines. This involved the development and presentation of course material at various levels.
In 2009, I acquired a Masters Degree in Biomedical Science at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. With my passion for training and skills development in the scientific and technology arena, I had the passion to use this experience to encourage learners to learn to love and excel in these important areas. Hence, I left the SAMRC in February 2012 and KW Academic Solutions was born.
In September of 2012 I started off with eight grade 11 learners from schools in the area. This number has steadily increased over the past three years. During this period I have been able to assist, over 100 learners improve their grades in mathematics and physical science. This includes grade 8 to 12 high school learners, students doing N2-N4 at FET colleges such as Northlink and Cape Town college, as well as students registered for various first year courses in mathematics or statistics at the University of the Western Cape and the University of South Africa.
