The BrightSparkz Tutors team are a group of dynamic individuals who work hard to give South African parents great customer service and attract tutors of exceptional quality. The company was birthed in 2005 and currently serves clients in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria.  The Online division combines tutoring via Skype with e-learning platforms to offer a tutoring solution for clients outside of major cities.  We carefully match suitable tutors depending on the subject requirements and availability of our clients, whether it be primary or high school learners, university students or adults. Tutoring takes place at the homes of our clients, or at schools or local libraries.

Our vision is to be able to provide access to academic support in one form or another to all South African learners, and to be the no. 1 tutor employer of choice for university students and teachers.
