Education is a solid foundation to a bright future. But educators can not always fully meet the needs of learners because they are not always with them. For this reason, most parents turn to institutions offering private lessons and extra classes to ensure that their children not only perform well in school, but also excel. Have a look at the list below for institutions that could help you become better at your studies.
1. Teach me too
Teach me too manages over a thousand of South Africa’s most talented tutors, backed up by their experienced support staff. In addition to servicing private individuals, they’ve been approached by businesses, schools, education trusts and even film companies, to manage tutoring programmes for all sorts of purposes.
Teach Me 2 was founded on the belief that one-on-one tutoring is the shortest distance to improved results in learning, for a number of well-documented reasons. It’s a belief that has rung true time and time again. But they also noticed a few unforeseen benefits to the tutor-learner relationship, such as accountability, mentorship and friendship. And they began to see that these personal dynamics often enriched the learning process indirectly by tackling deeper issues, like motivation and confidence, which are often at the heart of problems with learning. And so their big idea was that in order for tutoring to work best, they need to appoint tutors who don’t just know their stuff, but also know ‘people’. They need to have what it takes to inspire and grow the learners with whom they’re matched.
2. Master Maths
Master Maths is maths extra classes for grade 4 to 12 learners. Their system covers the entire South African curriculum with more than 149 centres across Southern Africa.
