Tutor the Future started in 2005 with six learners who were not happy in their current school.
The learners needed individual attention with special emphasis on reading, spelling, maths and study skills. The curriculum was outsourced to ensure a standardized education. Even though some of the learners had learning difficulties, the parents insisted on a good standard of education.Because of the small class and dedication from the teachers, learners and parents, this system worked. Fun was brought back into the classroom with very interactive lessons, with much participation from all. Learning spelling and timetables were done by singing, writing in the air, ball games and other activities.
As the learners progressed to the higher grades, a more structured approached was used. More teachers were employed and a second grade was added. The curriculum changed to a more book orientated system which tied in well with the Gauteng schools. The Clonard system is still used today. It has the fundamentals of teaching in place, with emphasis on Maths, English and Afrikaans. The curriculum is in line and approved by the Gauteng Education Department. The whole curriculum is covered, but only 6 exams are written twice a year. The other subjects are done in workbook format. This allows the learner to concentrate on the academic subjects needed for high school.
