How it works

For over 8 years, Far South Tutors has been empowering learners with enhanced language and computer skills. Our friendly, well-qualified and experienced tutors have taught  learners from diverse cultures, and currently teach online via Skype, Zoom, Google Classroom or Botim. Once the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are lifted, we will be able to offer face-to-face tuition in/around Cape Town and Somerset West/Strand as an option again.

1. The learner calls or emails us, or fills in the no-obligation form below.
2. We respond with a pricing package and answer any questions.
3. The tutor contacts the learner for a free (plus-minus 15-min) proficiency assessment and needs analysis.
4. If the learner chooses to continue, they pay for a bundle of (at least 5) lessons.
5. The learner arranges lesson days/times with their tutor.
6. Lessons commence.
7. If the learner would like more than 5 lessons, they pay for another bundle (at a 5% discount).
