ASP Tutoring will equip your child with the necessary study skills for more successful studying as well as improved performance in tests and exams. Sound study skills are critical for success at school and university, and these skills will continue to be useful throughout your child’s life.
Study skills will include some, or all, of the following depending on the individual child’s personal needs:
- Differing ways of organising, absorbing and retaining new information.
- Effective reading, comprehension (decoding and encoding written texts), and note-taking techniques.
- Effective writing skills, including essay writing techniques.
- Improving concentration.
- Exam strategies, which would include time management, not only in timed assessments but as a means of planning and organising revision.
Please note: experience has shown that a commitment to a minimum of three study skills sessions is necessary for there to be any benefit from them.

ASP Tutoring understands the pressures that many learners experience nowadays in school. Often, it feels overwhelming. You worry about your tests and exams; you want to do well but you don’t know where to start – especially if some of your marks have been disappointing. Mounting pressure can make it even more difficult to focus in class and on your homework.
Perhaps you’re under-performing during timed conditions? Maybe you seem to run out of time in tests and you’re frustrated by your inability to organise your thoughts before “Pens down!” You might be failing a subject (or two) – particularly a language or Core Maths – but the thought of asking questions in class makes you anxious. Possibly, you’d prefer a one-on-one learning environment.
Sometimes learners simply want to improve their marks; take their results up to the next Level to improve their university application, or to achieve the very best Matric they can.
ASP Tutoring will support you with solutions to all of these concerns, and more. Our tutors are subject experts who will enhance your study skills and motivate you, whilst improving your understanding – at your pace, and in a space where you feel comfortable.

ASP Tutoring offers a unique learning support programme that encompasses all of a learner’s subjects across the curricula, offering the child a framework within which to organise their studies and plan their approach to each subject.
The learner who opts for learning support probably has a diagnostic history of learning intervention, or is particularly anxious about school work. These children benefit enormously from the focused, individual attention and structure that one-on-one learning support offers.
In learning support, the relationship forged between the tutor and the learner becomes even more important, as the tutor continuously assesses the educational needs of the learner and adjusts the tutoring approach accordingly. The learning support tutor is flexible, and has a solid understanding of where the learner is in age and grade; these tutors will supplement and complement the learner’s classroom experience.
Learning support tutors liaise regularly with the learner’s parents, teachers and therapist/s to be of optimum help to the learner. Parents receive detailed termly reports on their child’s progress.

Being a parent is never easy, but being the parent of a child who’s unhappy at school is especially difficult.
ASP Tutoring understands how much parents benefit from support and direction when your child is in need of help. We’re here to partner you in this process.
How Extra Lessons, Study Skills and Learning Support Work
Preferably, a programme of sessions must be booked at the beginning of a term and all fees are payable in advance. (Please note: ASP Tutoring requires a minimum of three sessions; experience has shown anything less has little benefit to the learner.) Your advance payment of fees secures your child’s requested weekly lesson/study skills/learning support time.
Should your child have a valid reason for missing a weekly session, the tutor will make every effort to re-schedule, but this cannot be guaranteed.
Parents will receive a written report every term-end from your child’s tutor/s.
Please click the blue button below to view the terms and conditions underpinning our extra lessons:
- Once-off registration fee: R375.00 (plus VAT).
- Extra lessons: R445.00 per hour (plus VAT).
- Learning support: R515.00 per hour (plus VAT).
- Study skills: R515.00 per hour (plus VAT).
Should a tutor need to travel outside a radius of ten kilometres to provide any of ASP Tutoring’s services, an additional amount to cover travel costs will be charged. This amount is dependent on the distance the tutor will need to travel.
It is not what you do for your children, but what you
have taught them to do for themselves, that will
make them successful human beings.

Your child is never too young to need help. We are here to give your primary school child (and you) the support that will enhance your child’s confidence and improved understanding.

Every student can learn, just not on the same day and not in the same way.

ASP Tutoring carefully selects our tutors according to their teaching qualifications and subject experience, including, in some instances, tutors with remedial experience. Our tutors are professional and expert: passionate about developing every learner’s potential, they thrive on forming productive, supportive relationships with their tutees.
ASP Tutoring knows that the personal relationship between learner and tutor is a key component in supporting the learner, who may be having a miserable time at school. Our tutors offer learners an emotionally safe space in which they can feel secure and make real academic progress.
ASP Tutors are familiar with both the Independent Examining Board and the Department of Education curricula.
Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers.
