Cambridge tutoring for Primary, and High School
“I am not a teacher, but an awakener.” – Robert Frost
We take the art of Private Tuition very seriously
Every one of our Cambridge tutors scored distinctions in high school, has studied at university, passed our intake exams with distinction, and then completed our tutor training programme with distinction.
Our Cambridge tutors don’t just know the work, they know how to teach it; our students frequently improve their marks by 20%.
Over the last 28 years, we are proud to have helped students achieve their potential and go on to study at universities in South Africa, the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia.

Our approach to Cambridge tutoring
- First, we assess the student to identify gaps in the fundamentals (what content don’t they know?) and common error types (how are they losing marks?).
- Then, we select a mentor from our team of Cambridge tutors. It is crucial for a student to ‘like’ their tutor and look forward to the lessons.
- The trained tutor comes to the house for high-impact one-on-one lessons where they actually teach the ideas and concepts.
- We set structured homework for the student to do in between lessons. When it comes to learning, practice is key.
- We use projects, experiments, and practical demonstrations to excite the student and pique their interest.
- The student sits regular mock tests so that they can practice the skills under exam conditions, and we can monitor progress and increase their confidence.
- A student needs to familiarise themselves with the technical requirements of the memorandum in order to excel. We teach test-taking techniques.
- We supervise, guide and support the programme to ensure a great result.
“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” – William Arthur Ward
