We live in a strange time. The gap between private education and government education continues to grow each and every year. In order to send your student to a top private school in 2018 it might cost you up to, and beyond R250,000! You’d think that this would be the one-stop-shop for your child’s schooling. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Pressure on students to achieve high grades is growing as University places become more and more competitive. More and more students today are seeking extra tuition or extra lessons to make sure they get to the top of the class and can stand out from the crowd.

Maths tutors are expensive

The cost of a tutor can vary from R150-R600 per hour depending on their experience and if they travel. Sending your student to a homework centre or learning centre can also cost similar amounts. Your child’s learning shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Online learning is the cheaper, more reliable and results proven alternative to a Maths tutor

Learners have been using our online platform for over 3 years now to study for 2 of the hardest high school exams; 1- Advanced Programme Mathematics (AP Maths) and 2- The National Benchmark Tests (NBTs). Our students’ results and pass rates show that online learning works. Check out this video to see what some of our students have to say about online learning:

Online Maths tutor

If you’re looking for extra lessons for Mathematics then sign up today to learn with Maths Online. For a cost of only R199 per month, it’s by far a cheaper alternative to a tutor, as well as being available 24/7. Students have unrestricted access to all our Mathematics videos for all grades. Furthermore, during normal working hours (08h30-16h30 Monday-Friday) they can also ask us any Mathematics question and a qualified Mathematician will be ready to respond to their questions. You can even try it for free for 14-days. Or, if they are learning outside of those hours then they can log their question in our world-class support system and our teachers will respond within the next working day!

While there will always be a need for Maths tutors and their positive contribution to learners’ education is recognized, we honestly believe that this is a major part of the future of education and a significant lever with which to democratize high-quality learning. We are working hard every day to create new and improved content to make available to our learners at no extra cost to the monthly subscription fee. Feedback is so vital to us and we listen to students in how to keep improving the platform to make it easier to use and most importantly, easier to learn from.

Happy Learning!
