Ikasi Tutoring Movement is helping learners with Maths and Physical Sciences studies.

The organisation was started this year by friends Nkululo Gugu and Luvuyo Mbaleli, both,26, from Khayelitsha and Philippi respectively.

Currently working from Site C, which is where they tutor from, but also do private sessions at learners’ homes.

Gugu said they decided to start the lessons after observing that a lot of learners lack the requisite knowledge in Maths and Sciences.

“We were both volunteering for another organisation that was also tutoring and we saw that learners do not enjoy these two subjects,” he said.

He said they try to make the subjects enjoyable by not being too formal.

Gugu said they are seeing the results because the learners seem to be enjoying the subjects now.

Vuyiseka Mlenga,14, a Grade 9 learner from Zola High School, said the classes help a lot and she can see that through her results at school.

She had been struggling with maths before meeting the Ikasi Tutoring Movement.

Phelokazi Ntsibela,20, said she has improved her grades in maths this year because she had failed her matric last year.

She said attending the classes on Saturdays helps a lot and she is confident that when she writes exams, she will pass.

“I’m really enjoying maths now because of how we are being tutored here and I’m confident I will pass even though I wanted to give up,” she said.

Gugu said they get a lot of support from parents as well.

Everything comes at a cost, but the fee for these valuable lessons have proven affordable. For the Saturday classes they charge R250 a month and for private sessions its R100 per two hours.
