The need for tutoring in the Bridgetown area is becoming more and more prominent as local schools are increasing in overcrowded classrooms, where teachers do not have the capacity to pay individual attention to learners who are struggling in specific learning areas.
Statistics show that communities of this nature have larger unemployment rates than in “upper class” communities due to poor environments in schools. In Bridgetown, school dropout is a crisis where, on reaching Grade 12, approximately only 52% of the age appropriate population of students remain enrolled. This is due to many factors, including poor understanding of school material taught The tutoring project is currently running at the Ma’roof center in Bridgetown on a weekly basis.
Tuition takes place every Sunday for an hour and a half between 11 and 12 30 PM, in which each student is allocated a tutor. Students are currently required to pay R50 per session, 100% of which is paid to the tutor.
