            ‘It is my pleasure to welcome you all to Valley Tutoring Centre (VTC). We are a very unique centre offering mainly International UK h and American syllabi for students from Grade 8 and above. We offer a wide variety of subjects for full time (tutoring and study supervision) and part time students (tutoring only) as well as extra lessons. We can also offer assistance to students doing other curricula, both local or online.

            I created VTC back in 2002, making us one of the first tutoring centre in the Valley and beyond. My goal was to create a safe and educational environment for students wishing to take an alternative route to the South African curriculum and Matrics. It was very clear to me that the UK syllabus was the way to go as it is not only a worldwide recognized syllabus, but it is also highly regarded when applying to Universities in South Africa and abroad.  I am extremely proud of the team I have managed to build up over time. Starting with 4 students in 2002, we are now a team of 16 tutors and 40 students. VTC has not only grown in number but also in quality as our excellent recent O level  and A Level results proved with As in History, English, Afrikaans and Physical Science.

            Our unique approach to teaching is well regarded. Each tutor is carefully selected on not only their experience but also their whole holistic approach to teaching. We also make sure that our tutoring sessions are individual or in small groups, depending on the subject and level. A Level students are guaranteed one-on-one tutoring sessions.

            Our strength is our Christian approach to developing the whole person’s character and life-preparedness, along with academic success. We regularly invite guest speakers to come and talk to our students about teenage issues and career guidance.  We provide a nurturing and supportive environment that can positively impact the growth of our students at this important stage of their lives.

            Over the last 15 years, VTC has established strong relationships with different International Schools in Cape Town who fully recognize our work. We are proud to have an established Rotary Interact group running at our Centre.

            Our students are a testimony of our success and we are so proud to see them striving at our centre and moving on to tertiary studies abroad or in South Africa.

            Choosing VTC is definitely the right choice if you are looking for a more personal approach to schooling, a more structured way than homeschooling and a supportive and Christian environment for your child.

            If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.’
