Every year BrightSparkz awards the Top 5 Tutors in each branch with a Sparkz Award. This recognises their commitment to our company, their willingness to go the extra mile with their learners, and their tutoring potential.
One of award-winners, Jeanri Coetzee shares her top tutoring tip: “Find out about your learner’s interests, whether it is sport or music, and use this in your examples and explanations. This way a learner relates better to the work and understand how it applies beyond textbook theory.”
