Funda Sonke is a real-time online tutoring and mentor-ship service that provides additional assistance to pupils outside their normal schooling time. Our aim is to be easily accessible to learners and parents hence the real-time online service whose purpose is to be an additional support base to learners enrolled with a given high school, technical college or university. Funda Sonke currently tackles Physics and Mathematics for Grades 10-12 and Physics for first-year undergraduates. This is to ensure that all our learners are well prepared for their academic programme of choice at the tertiary level. Furthermore, we focus on the maximum utilization of time, therefore, we are bring tutoring into the learners' homes via real-time online lessons eliminating tutor and/or tutee travel time.
To provide a results driven, high quality and real time online tutoring service to anyone located anywhere in South Africa

Funda Sonke believes in high-quality education for all and therefore some proceeds from the online tutoring service are channeled towards some CSI projects. Currently, Funda Sonke is working with the following organizations in a drive towards high-quality education for all:
JSDT SOLUTIONS designs free educational apps for high school students from Grade 8 - 12 that function while offline. Inside the app, the user can find useful study materials such as Chapter Notes, Examples, Practice Problems and Past Exam Papers with memorandums arranged in a user-friendly layout. Currently, the apps are for Android-powered smartphones only.
GER SOLUTIONS runs multiple community services which include academic outreach. We offer tutoring classes to learners from grade 8 - 12 in mathematics and physical sciences. Our tutoring services range from online assistance to face to face assistance. GER SOLUTIONS is situated in Taung (North West) and intends to impact the community within this small town and hopefully other towns based on circumstances.
