“Simply the best” – Tina Turner
Trish Pike is our very own Educational RockStar with decades of experience in the game. Learners are literally busting down the door to learn from her due to her incredible teaching ability, experience, passion and care for her students. She blazed the trail for our best-in-class AP Maths and NBT preparation courses and, over and above this, is hard at work mentoring generation NEXT; Advantage Learn’s next-generation teaching force. She is also the developer and lead teacher of our Maths Online offering – imagine this, over 180 hours of Trish teaching the entire maths syllabus via studio-recorded videos!

“Treat yo self!” Tom Haverford
Meet our very own Neil Armstrong. Actually, he’s more like our Bill Nye.
They say that one of the hardest steps for any startup is finding your first customer. Crispian bravely took these first steps. As part of the founding family made up of Trish, Crispian and James, Crispian was tasked with establishing our first AP Maths centres which gave us our reason to exist. And aren’t we grateful.
‘Analyze, strategize, succeed’ (A.S.S for short) – Jack Donaghy, 30 Rock
If there is a business term or idiom going, James has it covered. He favours idioms that are ship-related – we think he was a pirate in a past life. A creative trapped in an analysts body, James is the visionary of the team. On too many occasions to count, James has pitched a harebrained idea to the team, we’ve rolled our eyes, begrudgingly tried it out (because he is SUPER hard to ignore) … and slowly watched it become the best idea ever.

This dynamo in the classroom is one of the leading ladies in Advantage Learn’s generation NEXT; the teaching force spearheaded by our Educational RockStar, Trish Pike. Strongly averse to the limelight, once Roxy finds herself in a classroom of young minds that need to learn, her light shines BRIGHTLY – illuminating tricky concepts with her trademark and disarming concept introduction of ”DON’T PANIC” – her students will know what that means. A lover of fast cars artistically painted nails and shoes, Roxy flies the Advantage Learn flag high in the city of gold, Johannesburg.
