All the subjects

we assist with


The development of specific language skills in reading, comprehension, writing and presentation in English, is fundamental to the student’s success in all other subjects.  We aim to enhance skills in a variety of areas, encourage inferential thinking and instil an appreciation and love for literature. 


Studying Science gives a person a deeper understanding of the Universe we live in. It is one of the few subjects that are compulsory for several fields of study. Most students do not cope with this subject without extra help.  To ensure success assistance should start as early as Grade 8 and 9 in subjects such as Natural Science and Technology as these are precursor subjects to Physical Science and Life Science at a later stage.  In Natural Science and Science we teach problem solving skills and how to analyse and interpret data – skills which are necessary in all walks of life. 


Workshops are useful to assist students to understand difficult topics.  These workshops will be designed to develop skills and tools required to answer questions effectively.  They will prove to greatly influence general comprehension of the subjects given.
