Why We Exist

Our Purpose

BrightSparkz’s core purpose is to create brighter opportunities through learning!  What do we mean by this?

A learner who has been struggling throughout high school, but with the aid of a tutor manages to get a Bachelor’s pass in Matric, definitely has brighter opportunities.  A Grade 9 learner from a disadvantaged background, with a visual impairment, obtains sponsorship for tutoring and for an examination reader. He passes Grade 9 and his confidence soars – he definitely has brighter opportunities.  These are just two of many of our success stories over the past decade.

How Do We Achieve This?

Every day, we connect parents and learners to exceptional tutors, for an individually tailored learning support experience.  Our aim is that through one-on-one attention and tailored tutoring sessions based around individual needs, that each learner will have the opportunity to boost their confidence and interest in the subject, change their attitude towards school and studying, ultimately improving their results.

Our Story

BrightSparkz Tutors was birthed in 2007, establishing itself as the earliest formal tutoring company in Cape Town, shortly thereafter expanding into Johannesburg and Pretoria, and later into Port Elizabeth and Durban.  A desperate need for an extra-curricular academic support system for learners and parents was identified, and we pride ourselves in making sure our clients continue to experience only top-quality tutors, and an efficient, personalized tutor-matching and learning support service, more than 10 years later.

In addition to personalized tutoring, we have also developed a range of academic support services. These include readers, scribes and other concessions facilitators for exams; specialized language courses (Afrikaans, Zulu and French Boot Camp programs) for school learners and adults; a unique Study Skills Crash Course that aims to improve study skills and organizational techniques; a Grade R readiness program (Little Sparkz); and online tutoring for our clients outside of our main tutoring regions.
