About Hire Education Tutoring
Hire Education is an education and tutoring company based in Johannesburg, South Africa; founded in 2003. Our main focus has been 1-on-1 and group tutoring, but more recently we have broadened our vision and ideas of how we can help, on a larger scale, to provide affordable and accessible education to all South Africans.
Part of this vision and plan is to provide a full education solution, including ICT software, hardware, infrastructure and integration with training at affordable rates. The other part is to make the solution sustainable.
Our mission is to provide affordable, innovative educational assistance to learners, parents, teachers and other stakeholders in our countries’ education. We aim to provide this through a variety of tools, and to keep these tools updated and relevant to the quick changing demands on education we face together as a society.
The tools we offer include tutoring, educational assessments, motivational and educational workshops/ talks, educational toys, books, downloadable educational materials and more.
Our aim is to use these tools and to partner with the right and relevant people/organisations in order to ensure no matter what the situation or background, every person in South Africa has the opportunity to learn.
We believe learning and education is a life-long journey.

If you are an individual or corporate company interested in working with us, or an education trust looking to sponsor assistance to schools / learners in South Africa, we would love to chat to you and hear your ideas about how we can work together.
Our founder, Rory Brachner, started tutoring whilst studying way back in 2001. Rory had such good results with the tutoring that he began receiving far more requests than he could possibly service himself. That’s when the penny dropped. “I’ve got more learners than I can handle… why not find and train others to do the same thing I’m doing?”
Rory, by that time, a 2nd year student, hired a fellow student as his first tutor in 2001.
By the time he qualified and left university at the end of 2002 (to work for a listed technology company) he had 10 students working for him as tutors. He registered Hire Education in 2003.
In May 2007, Robyn Cameron joined the company, and after building up the sales and marketing side of things for 2 years, Rory offered her shares and the opportunity to become General Manager.
In October 2013 Robyn took over full ownership of the company, converted to a PTY, and charged into a new decade with a new vision and some big dreams.
Essentially, Hire Education started out as a tutoring company that took the rich resource of bright, young university students (with natural teaching and mentoring abilities) and connected them to school learners in need of assistance.
After managing thousands of tutors through Hire Education though, it became apparent we had a knack for creating and implementing systems and procedures to train and manage South African students in general.
With this insight, we broadened our aims to provide students with well paid jobs that not only help to fund their university years, but also provide important lessons and skills needed when they graduate.
The job market is tough. We make our students tougher.
We are passionate about teaching our youth business etiquette and communication; time management and organisational skills. We believe in mentoring and never running away from a mistake and these are vital skills graduates are missing these days.
With this goal in mind we launched www.hireastudent.co.za in December 2013.
