Believe it or not, my daughter has just emailed me from her holiday to say “I have been checking the whole day to see if my tutor has sent me any maths worksheets.” Who would have thought that a girl who was in tears about her maths ten days ago, would be asking for additional worksheets? You have no idea how grateful I am. Thank you, thank you!Nicky Stubbs, Western Cape
My two girls have been using Via Afrika Tabtor Maths for about two months now, and they both absolutely love it. They get so excited by it, that they sometimes even sit and do worksheets while we drive home after school! They especially like the leaderboard functionality – it inspires them to see how well they’re doing compared to others.
And their Maths marks have gone from good to great! I’m so glad we signed up for this!Fransie, Limpopo
I know my son is going to need the best education possible to succeed. Even though he is at the top of his class in maths, he enjoys working on Via Afrika Tabtor Maths because he love the challenge of more advanced work. I was surprised by how much he is motivated by the monthly points.Gerhard, Eastern Cape

How it works
Individualised learning with a personal tutor
When a learner starts Via Afrika Tabtor Maths, he or she will complete a diagnostic assessment. The learner’s skills are matched to the appropriate maths level and problems by our specialist tutors who are then able to individualise and structure maths assignments for each learner. Worksheets contain video tutorials to develop concepts, and tutors can provide personalised videos and voice message to take understanding further. And best of all, you don’t have to drive anywhere – this maths tutoring in your own home in your own time. Maths tutoring on demand.
Peace of mind
All of our tutors are carefully selected then vetted (CROLL Check), and sign a Code of Conduct.
The human element
This feature is what makes our platform unique — we provide a real tutor for every child to work with on a one-to-one basis on the tablet! Our tutors review, mark and provide customised feedback for every maths worksheet your child completes.
Learning behaviour tracking
When learners solve their maths problems on the tablet with their finger or stylus, our digital paper technology tracks each stroke. This allows for greater understanding of each child’s learning behaviour and grasp of maths concepts by our tutors. Our tutors can actually see each step when they mark the work. This means they can provide valuable individual feedback. In-depth analysis allows our tutors to understand where a learner may be struggling and needs intervention.
The CAPS curriculum
Via Afrika Tabtor Maths is aligned to the South African CAPS curriculum and has a strong focus on developing skills for problem solving and logical reasoning. This means that extra-lessons are matched to classroom work. Numerous challenging word problem activities develop computational, analytical as well as language skills. With over 7 500 worksheets that are assigned according to the learner’s individual needs, their understanding of numbers and fluency in doing maths are increased.
Regular feedback and Weekly Learner-Tutor Interaction
Not only do our tutors personally mark and review each maths worksheet within 24 hours* of receiving it, but each week you receive a personalised weekly report from the tutor so you can monitor your child’s progress. In addition to worksheets, there are tests at appropriate milestones to confirm understanding of the mathematical concepts. *Excluding Sundays and Public holidays
Why start with extra maths so young?
In order to be successful at maths in the higher grades, a strong foundation must be built early on in the child’s school career. This means that not only must the learner understand the early mathematical concepts, but he or she must develop fluency (the speed at which basic maths calculations are done), automaticity (the ability to complete basic maths calculations without having to puzzle out how to do it) and accuracy (the answer must be right). Via Afrika Tabtor Maths builds these four foundational elements in an engaging and motivating way, leading to greater success as the curriculum increases in conceptual difficulty.
