Marijke du Plessis (Owner)
I completed my undergraduate and Honours years at the University of Johannesburg, with a BA in Child and Family Psychology. After graduating in 2009 I continued working with learners with learning and behavioural difficulties at a home school based institution. In 2010 I completed my Post Graduate Certificate in Education, cum laude. From there I went on to become a Grade 4 educator. Lastly in 2014 I completed an Advanced Diploma in Remedial Education through the University of Johannesburg. I have vast experience working with learners with special educational needs ranging from specific learning disorders like ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia and learning difficulties. I have worked as a teacher and facilitator in many different classrooms and have a sound reputation when it comes to homework supervision and exam preparation.
My integrity and personal drive for excellence is my driving force behind motivating my learners. I have a natural instinct to help the learners that are struggling as well as a genuine care for my clients.
The decision to embark on the journey that is Master Minds is motivated by the fact that there is a great need to cater for learners who are experiencing barriers to learning.
