Looking for something particular?


Traditional face-to-face teaching by experienced and highly qualified teachers ensures that learners get the most out of each lesson.


Learners will gain a sound knowledge of mathematics provided that they attended lessons regularly and complete their weekly assignments.


The attitude of learners towards mathematics will gradually change and their confidence in the subject will drastically increase.

How are lessons conducted?

We keep the classes small and focus on a traditional face-to-face teaching methodology. We find that with mathematics – old school is the best way.

Learners are provided with weekly assignments to practice the work that was covered in the lesson. We expect assignments to be completed and submitted to the tutor at the following lesson. We don’t expect perfect work; we do expect a real effort.
If the learner experiences difficulties completing the assignment, the learner can have free extra lessons with the tutor to complete the assignment provided:

    • The learner has attended at least 80% of all lessons conducted as at that point in time;


    • The learner has submitted – and attempted – at least 80% of all weekly assignments as at that point in time.

Both conditions will apply.

Who Are We?

Katapult Maths was founded in 35 years of teaching experience.

With a special love for Mathematics and Statistics, the Director and Head tutor, decided it was time to use his particular skill set to help the younger student (having previously focused on tertiary-level learners).

Renowned for his teaching methodologies and passion in the classroom, he trained other tutors to follow suit.  Together, as a team, they transfer the love and magic of mathematics to a new generation of learners.

School Details


Do Katapult Maths tutors help with school homework?

Ordinarily, no. Our tutors teach skills and problem-solving in mathematics.  We find that helping the individual with homework disrupts the flow of the lesson.  Any assistance with school homework will be charged separately at R400 per hour. 


Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the difference between a 12 week course (one semester) and a 24 week course (two semesters)?

As the course runs over the period of a year, the 24 week course covers the whole syllabus for the relevant grade.  A 12 week course will cover half the syllabus.  Which half depends on whether you enrol your child for the first or second semester of the year.

2. What if my child misses a lesson?

As Katapult Maths is following a tight schedule, we cannot easily repeat lessons.  However, if your child was sick and is able to produce a verifiable sick note, we will, at our discretion, repeat the lesson free of charge.

3. What if my child is late for a lesson?

If a learner is more than 30 minutes late on two separate occasions, this will be treated as one day absent.

4. Where are the lessons held?

Lessons are held once-weekly at our Katapult premises in Bedfordview.  The address is 46 Arbroath road, Bedfordview.
