01. How do I enrol for extra classes with Abakus Enrichment?

We currently have branches in Stellenbosch and Paarl; and have our sights set on expanding throughout the country. Our tutors are also available for online classes.

04. How long will my child need tutoring?
At Abakus Enrichment we don’t believe in a quick fix. We believe in sustainable improvement through the promotion of understanding rather than just mastering of procedures.
This is a process that takes time but will offer the best results in the long run. Each student progresses at their own pace and we offer our support every step of the way.

Marks are not the only factor that is indicative of progress. When you enrol at Abakus Enrichment, we create a profile for your child on our tracking platform that is linked to your email address. In each session we monitor the progress on work done as well as on attitude, confidence and willingness to engage.
The platform sends out notifications to the parents in real time, so that you are always clued in on your child’s progress.
