Afrikaans Tutors

Find an Afrikaans Tutor

We apply our language tutoring principals to all of our language lessons, including Afrikaans tutoring. The most effective way to improve skills in a language such as Afrikaans, is by focusing on small steps, and with a variety of media and data input. An Afrikaans tutor will guide you and teach you the most effective learning tools.

The foundation of the language is important, and therefore the first 5 – 10 lessons with an Afrikaans tutor would generally be used go back and fill in gaps; clarify; consolidate work covered.

Thereafter, Afrikaans conversation classes can be scheduled, as well as homework such as watching a TV program/ movie or reading an Afrikaans magazine or book.

This 2 tiered approach builds a strong foundation which makes the finer nuances of the language that much easier to grasp. The practical application of Afrikaans builds a deeper understanding of the language as a whole and empowers you with how to apply your foundation knowledge in a real life situation.

Specialised tutors at all levels of education

Specialised tutors at all levels of education

An effective education should equip children and young adults with the knowledge and learning skills they will need to thrive in a competitive world.

The best kind of education builds on a solid foundation – which is why we offer expert tutoring from primary school level upwards. Our primary level tutors are sensitive to the needs of younger learners and help to create a basis of reading, writing, numeracy and other skills which are essential building blocks of a good education.

As our students progress to high school and university, we provide highly qualified tutors who have an excellent grasp of their subject matter and are dedicated to teaching. These specialist tutors have in-depth knowledge of matric and university subjects which allows them to teach effectively at a higher level.

We select the best tutors – and make them even better

At Hire Education we believe that tutors should have two important traits: in-depth knowledge of their subject, and a teaching philosophy that brings out the best in students.

We have a comprehensive 4 hour tutor training workshop and a tutoring test at the end.

Our screening process allows us to select constructive, positive tutors who have mastered their subjects – and our teaching philosophy has produced excellent results for over a decade. We work with our tutors to foster a learning environment that empowers learners.
