What we do

Mathmoms

a

The MathMom is mentored to tutor foundation phase learners in basic math skills.

She works with 2 learners at a time, during school hours, working with four learners per day. Children in her neighborhood also receive guidance from her. She is required to tutor at least 4 children at home with maths and homework.

 

The MathMom is also required to make herself available to assist in schools in other ways.

 

She is equipped in various ways to build meaningful relationships in the classroom as well as in the community. We invest in her personal growth to enable her to become a role model for the learner and in the community. We aim at building relationships among the MathMoms within which they can experience belonging and mutual support.

 

The MathMoms are mentored in every step of the way by retired teachers who are strong and enthusiastic individuals. Our Mentors do not merely want to improve the teaching of maths, they also want to improve parental involvement in schools because we believe that strong communities build strong schools.
