Individualized Assistance:

NEC has for 37 years prided ourselves on our individualized approach.  We will never take more than THREE students in any given session.  Each student is given a customized programme based on an initial assessment.  Our approach is to meet each child’s particular need.  We believe in the uniqueness of every individual and respect their different types of learning styles and levels of understanding.  We work both on the underlying problem that is causing a deficit in progress and with whatever syllabus the student is currently doing. Our proven track record of success justifies that this approach is one that works!!

“If a child cannot learn the way they are taught, they must be taught the way they can learn”


One-on-one tutoring is also available at the Centre for learners who request this type of intervention. At times, we may suggest this if a learner has a serious and debilitating challenge relating to concentration. Parents may also request a one-on-one tutoring session if they feel that this will be in their child’s best interest. We respect parental opinions – after all, a mother or father knows the child better than anyone else.

Some learners require the total and undivided attention of the tutor for the full hour due to a variety of challenges such as emotional difficulties, serious gaps which require intense interaction with a tutor or an inability to switch off the distraction.

High Achievers:

Some students are coping but want to progress to a higher level.  Looking for distinctions or specific entry into tertiary studies – then our highly qualified and experienced tutors can assist. Worried whether your child will maintain his/her good marks in a higher grade??  The answer is to start early at the beginning of the year with the correct skilled support system that we can offer.  Our tutors are all equipped to accelerate improvement and challenge students to make the most of their potential. We have had no less than four Olympic champions who studied with us while training for their desired sports and maintaining good marks at the same time.

Throughout each term, we will be offering intermittent workshops in particular subjects.  These will be cost-effective as they will be done in larger groups,  dealing with specific topics that students can grasp BEFORE they are dealt with a in the classroom. Workshops will be posted on our website and students can opt to take just one or a  DISCOUNTED price for the whole year.  Our Workshops will be designed to deal with areas of the subjects that students regularly struggle with.   Watch this space to be the bright spark of your class!

The advantages of this approach are as follows:

Our tutors are all qualified and familiar with challenging areas

You have the option to book for one workshop or get a discount for the whole year's workshops

Confidence in the classroom leads to success

Suitable for High Achievers or Medium to Low Achievers
