The Thinking Tools philosophy
The concept ‘Thinking Tools’ emanated from my book: The DNA of Great Teachers. The format of the curriculum and textbooks is linear i.e. from A to Z. The brain is not designed to think in linear ways, therefore explanations cause children’s minds to wander all the time. Thinking Tools, as the brain, is hyperlink-based, therefor guide the brain to explore, discover master and solve problems. Thinking Tools is not a study method, they are ways of thinking.

Parent, teacher and student teacher sessions
Parents: 5 sessions. Teachers: 6 sessions. Teacher training goes hand in hand with training in Great Teaching which includes five teaching methods. Teachers qualify for 20 CPTD points.
Grade 4 to 12 learner and student sessions
Children have 4 sessions where they are engaged in Thinking Tools needed to master their schoolwork. Grades 4 to 7 still need support, therefor a parent must sit in at the standard rate. For parents sitting in without doing own sessions, there is a cost of R200 per session.
Format of the sessions
Booking and fees
Payments are made when booking. No fees are refunded since a session must be cancelled and a new session must be scheduled. Cancellations fees are used to give less privileged individuals the opportunity to attend sessions.
