hello tutor partners with corporates to provide curriculum aligned maths and science video content to schools through hello tutor hubs. Each hub contains all the material available on the internet-based platform, but is set up on a server at the school to allow unlimited access with no need for an internet connection. It’s how we are able to bring the best in South African teaching to each and every learner, even those is rural settings. It’s how we are building our presence around the country through partnerships with like-minded businesses such as Britehouse. It’s how, over time, we intend revolutionising education!
“The reality is that these 200 learners have benefited from the equivalent of over 160 hours of quality teaching from leading South African teachers in the space of just two months.” Britehouse Collaboration
Via Afrika Collaboration
hello tutor is delighted to announce the collaboration with Via Afrika, a leading South African publishing house in the education sector with a strong presence in printed materials, digital materials and adult education. Via Afrika has received numerous awards over the years, including the South African Booksellers Association’s Sefika Best Educational Publisher award for three consecutive years, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Furthermore, their CAPS aligned Via Afrika Series has the highest approval rate for a single series in the industry. As impressive as these accolades are, it’s Via Afrika’s activity and growing presence in the digital education space which attracted hello tutor to the association.
In much the same way that hello tutor has established hubs across the country bringing high quality learning resources to underserviced South African students, so Via Afrika have rolled out digital education centres in the Free State, Limpopo and Mpumalanga each containing printed textbooks, fifteen tablets, and a computer, all of which are loaded with educational software, more than 400 Via Afrika eBooks and the Via Afrika apps. It’s alignment such as this and elsewhere which has made the partnership one worth pursuing and one which we at hello tutor are extremely excited about.
With hello tutor’s maths and science library focused largely on high school learners, Via Afrika brings to the collaboration an interactive personalized maths learning programme for Grade R to Grade 6 learners, Tabtor Maths. Through the app, which is available across most smart devices, children are able to receive personal attention from a tutor who marks and guides each child with worksheet level feedback. The results speak for themselves, with typical improvement of 2 – 5 times in performance within 7 – 10 weeks of using the programme. It’s innovative, cutting edge use of technology to engage with learners on a large scale at affordable prices such as this, which has brought the two parties together in a collaboration filled with possibilities.
