Learning problems are not about losing the battle. Remedial aid is about giving your child wings.

Letters from parents


In Grade 4 we discovered that our son had severely impaired vision (5% in his left eye and 30% in his right eye). Although he had an eye-test in Grade 0, this problem was never picked up. We also discovered that our son learnt by hearing as he could never see on the blackboard.
Learning subjects like Social science, Natural Science and Economic Management Sciences were never really a problem as he could learn that by hearing, but in Grade 5 his maths and comprehension test marks dropped dramatically due to the fact that he could not compensate for his disability.
His teacher referred me to Annemarie Swart for remedial teaching, because certain concepts had not been internalised. My son attended Annemarie's remedial teaching for 18 months and during this time saw a steady improvement in both maths and comprehension tests. His maths showed a steady improvement from 36% up to 90% three weeks ago. Comprehension tests were usually as low as 30-40% and also showed a steady improvement to about 70%. Our son is in grade 7 and the overall improvement in his marks gave him back his self confidence he needed.

Annemarie definitely has a way of working with children and made a huge impact on my son!


My son, aged 10 years, has been attending remedial classes for spelling and reading with Annemarie Swart for the past few months. His spelling has improved enormously – to such an extent that he is now near the top of his class where previously he was nearly at the bottom. Even his teachers commented on the great improvement.
Annemarie works intensively on an individual basis with great results. This has improved my child’s self-esteem as well as his marks in language subjects. I highly recommend remedial classes to any child with a similar problem.


My son has been receiving remedial aid with Annemarie for a couple of years. She has built him up not only on an academic level but also on a personal level.
Her patience, dedication and love for the children she works with makes her a remarkable person and my child has related well to her. She has a structured routine and is always motivating and full of praise which assists the children on an academic and personal level. She understands the children well enough to know when they have had enough and are tired and immediately changes the session to doing something out of the ordinary to make the learning fun.
My son has developed the confidence and understanding to improve on his marks and has shown a vast improvement in his learning subjects.
THANK YOU ANNEMARIE!!!


Goeiemore Annemarie

Wil vandag vir jou laat weet dat my Seun E*** verlede jaar sy graad 11 jaar in die top 3 in Cornwall Hill College voltooi het. Sy gemiddeld vir die jaar is 88 %! Sy keuse vakke is ook allermins maklik! Dit bestaan uit 'Accounting', Afrikaans, 'English', IT, 'Mathematics', 'Physical Science', 'Add Maths' en 'Paper 3 Maths'. Hy het dus sy graad 11 jaar op 'n baie goeie grondslag afgesluit en kan slegs voortbou vir sy laaste skooljaar.

Ek het vandag teruggekyk na sy graad 3 rapport wat 'n baie gemiddelde seuntjie uitbeeld. Sy juffrou in graad 3 het aanbeveel dat hy vir remediërende klasse na jou moet gaan, aangesien sy gevoel het dat hy totaal onder sy vermoëns presteer. Ek het my laat lei deur al jou kennis en jy het Eric tot aan die einde van sy graad 4 jaar help ontwikkel.

Wat ek altyd waardeer as ek terugkyk na ons terapiejare, is dat jy altyd bereid was om oplossings vir enige probleme te soek en kry, al is dit buite jou veld , omdat jy onvoorwaardelik glo aan die potentiaal van elke kind waarby jy betrokke is.

Soos jy, glo ek ook dat die beste geskenk wat jy jou kind kan gee, is om hom so goed moontlik voor te berei om al sy godgegewe talente ten volle te kan ontwikkel.

Dat E*** so ver soos die top 3 kan presteer in 'n baie kompeterende skool (terwyl hy ook nog voltyds swem), is vir my verbysterend.

Dus alhoewel hy baie gelukkig is om in 'n skool te wees met fantastiese onderwysers wil ek jou hartlik bedank vir jou bydrae in die sukses wat E*** vandag ervaar.

Hierdie dankie brief is namens my en E***.

Baie liefde
