Maatje has 5 years experience as a Mathematics and Mathematical Literacy teacher for high school learners. She has a passion for finding creative ways for students to learn and understand not only maths, but themselves as individuals. 


“I love to see people grow and achieve in something they once thought to be impossible for them. Everyone can do anything if they put their mind to it, but they can be even greater when they take a hand for guidance and support. That is what I want to be to my students… a help, encourager and motivator. With that I do believe everyone CAN do maths. I hope to help students find their unique way of understanding and to overcome any obstacle that hinders them from achieving their God-given potential. “

Esmari Maré

Esmari Maré

Mathematics tutor with a BSc degree from Stellenbosch University.

Esmari is busy with her MSc degree in Applied Mathematics.


“I love maths and I love breaking things open for people so that they can come to the place of truly understanding a given topic. Teaching maths is therefore a great opportunity to show learners not only how to pass the next test, but also the skill of problem solving and the reward of hard work and dilligence. God makes each person beautifully unique with unique interests and talents. I am aware that not all share my love for maths, but I try to paint it in a way that makes sense and might even be a bit… fun.”
