Xavier von Stein

MSc cum laude Laser Physics

Xavier has been tutoring and mentoring high-school science students for the past 4 years with the guidance of Leonie Groger from Creative Maths. He completed his MSc at Stellenbosch University and is a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society. During his Master’s degree he was awarded the Willhelm Frank Bursary, received an award for the best MSc presentation in photonics at the SAIP conference and the prestigious S2A3 medal for his thesis. This medal is awarded to the best Master’s student in the Natural Science Faculty at each of South Africa’s Tertiary institutions. After completing his studies he decided to pursue a career in independent education where he could share his passion & energy for the subject. Running in parallel with the tutoring program, Xavier is currently writing and illustrating a Maths & Science text book series. He is also involved in facilitating an online outreach program in Somerset West.


“Xavier helped my son improve his marks considerably while building his confidence in understanding Science. Xavier has a wonderful way in connecting with his students.” ~ Phillipa Geard

“I can highly recommend Xavier. Besides being an excellent tutor, he is also a mentor and friend. Alex started going to him at the beginning of grade 11. At that stage he was ready to drop science – since going to him Alex’s mark has improved by 20%” ~ Lisa Brody

“Organized, reliable and unbelievably makes science fun. Well planned lessons and incredible explanations undoubtedly boost your understanding of the relevant subject. Highly recommended” ~ Steph Bihl

“I used to struggle with science, but all was solved until I met Xavier. My science tutor and a dear friend. For me, science was more than formulas and numbers on a piece of paper. It has taught me discipline and to think rationally. I found purpose in life through science, because it gave me a different and beautiful perspective about my everyday surroundings. Xavier helped me unlock my potential. I scored more than 90% in every exam. Smart Science is a home where ideas are discussed and targets reached.” ~ Ryno Davis

“My daughter absolutely hated Science but needed to follow through with it due to her possible future career options. Thankfully we were directed to Xavier and he has been an absolute godsend. He addressed her fears and lack of confidence in Science which allowed her to raise her marks considerably. He has an unbelievable rapport with students and an innate understanding of how to deal with teens. Thank you Xavier for your commitment and dedication to our children.” ~ Janine Johnson

“My daughter nearly doubled het marks in science within a term and not only did her confidence improve, but her marks overall. She would have been lost without Xavier and his kind and nurturing nature.” ~ Delaille Lourens
