Sue Jerg  

 

Sue Jerg was born in East London, into a German family. Her younger sister was born severely hearing impaired and this developed a love of teaching in Sue. She was educated at Stellenbosch University doing her B.Prim. Ed degree, and furthered her studies with a diploma in specialised education for the hearing impaired/speech therapy. She taught as a speech teacher in East London before moving to Kimberley with her husband where she taught at Kimberley Junior. Their move to Johannesburg in 2000 resulted in her teaching at 2 Remedial Schools, teaching the grade 5 and 4 classes respectively. She then taught the combined grade 4 and 5 remedial class at an underprivileged school before being approached by some parents to consider tutoring their children who they were going to home school.

With 6 children on her patio at home, Tutor the Future was born, giving these learners in grade 5 and 6 the attention they needed and bringing the love of learning back into their lives

Her love of teaching and helping each learner, is evident. Sue still teaches to this day and enjoys the interaction with the children. The highlight of each day is when she has gotten through to a child, be it in a visual, auditory or kinesthetic way. Different learning styles, and the fact that she had grown up with a hearing-impaired sister, teaching at remedial schools and having a daughter who has ADHD has taught her much. Sue’s compassion and knowledge of the curriculum makes her well suited to help achieve each child’s potential.

Teachers

Sue prides herself in working with skilled educators who have the same passion and vision for the learners. Teachers are qualified, have experience and are all trained in the 'doing differently' approach. 

Student teachers are employed to teach the non-exam subjects, are used as scribes and reading aids. The teacher-learner relationship is very important as learning thrives in a healthy environment.

Karate sessions are run by Ryan Peel, 3rd Dan Goju-Rya, Karate-do International South Africa. Children are graded at the end of each year.
