Master Science Silverlakes provides extra physical science tuition for grade 10 to 12 learners. Our tutors and lessons help learners make their science education a success. Ons wetenskap ekstra klasse is volledig tweetalig.

We started our first Master Maths Centre as a mother (Bettie van Straten) and daughter (Sorita Groenewald) owned business in 2006 at Silver Lakes Golf Estate in Pretoria East. Since then we have experienced great success by increasing our learner’s marks and changing their perspective about Maths and their future.

We started with the Master Science programme in 2012 and experienced that there is a high demand for additional science tuition in South Africa. We develop and inspire young scientists t. by giving them the self-confidence to excel in science. We show our learners that science is fun and also inform them about the opportunities that good science marks can create for their future.

At Master Science Silverlakes we created an environment where you child will experience an academic atmosphere and where he/she will learn to ask questions and to be able to study independently.

Please do not hesitate to contact the owners directly on how to create a better future for your child.

Centre Team

Sorita Groenewald

Owner & Manager – “Dit is vir my ‘n groot voorreg om die Master Maths Silver Lakes, Mooikloof en Hazeldean sentrums te besit en te bestuur. Ek is baie trots op ons studente en ons tutors. Ons het ‘n passie vir wat ons doen en leer die leerders om selfstandig te werk en lief te raak vir die vakke.

Ek sien myself en ons span ook as meer as net tutors, ons is ook mentors vir ons leerders en wil graag vir hulle ‘n ondersteungsstelsel bied om hulle volle potensiaal te bereik.

It is a privilege to be part of a students’ learning path and for that reason I take great pride in my work as a Master Maths manager and owner.”

Bettie van Straten

“I was a maths teacher for more than 25 years and starting a Master Maths franchise was the next big challenge for me. I have the ability to explain maths to all grades on different levels. I believe that every student has the potential to improve their marks.”

Andrew Pearce

“Hi, my name is Andrew Pearce, I have been tutoring for Master Maths since 2018.

As the Head Tutor I am responsible for helping the learners with any question or sum they might struggle with, I also try to help learners stay motivated and to keep on trying no matter how much they struggle. There is nothing quite as gratifying as watching a learners face light up after truly understanding a problem they have been sitting struggling with, I am lucky as I get to experience this almost every single day.”

Anneliese Ahrens


“Ek is Anneliese Ahrens.  Ek is meestal die een wat die kinders se werkkaarte merk en as nodig uithelp met ‘tutoring’.  Ek sien hoe belangrik die basiese kennis van tafels asook optel en aftrek is.  Dit word ‘n ongelooflike hindernis as kinders dit nie onder die knie het nie.

Ek sien hoe die kinders wat met die Mastermaths program werk se selfvertroue verbeter as hulle volhou met konsekwente werk en hulle in hulself kan glo.  Hulle leer ook om onafhanklik te werk en besluite te neem.  In my tydjie by Mastermaths het ek menige kere gesien hoe kinders die vrugte pluk van hul harde werk.  Dit is my motivering en rede om by Mastermaths betrokke te wees.”

André Steyn

“Ek is ‘n wetenskap en wiskunde tutor en merker by Master Maths. My grootste rede hoekom ek ‘n tutor is, is omdat ek ‘n passie het vir die vakke en ek geniet dit om studente te kan help en leer. Die rede waarom ek by Master Maths spesifiek werk, is omdat ek die geleentheid het om studente van alle ouderdomme te help en dit hou my op datum met die basiese beginsels van die 2 vakke. Ek dink die Master Maths sisteem werk baie goed, want die studente leer die beginsels van ‘n spesifieke onderwerp in die modules en dan het hulle die geleentheid om hulle kennis op die onderwerp te toets deur om die werkkaarte te doen. As hulle onseker is oor sekere dinge of wil dalk net bietjie meer weet oor ‘n onderwerp, dan is die tutors daar om hulle te help.”

Drake Slabbert

“I work as a tutor on Saturdays. My job is to ensure that the children are not only doing work that is beneficial to them but that they understand that work perfectly.

I have always had a love of tutoring. Before I started working at Master Maths, I would tutor my friends. To me there is nothing better than the look on someone’s face when they finally understand a topic that they have been struggling with.

At master maths I see that look every time I tutor, and it is the best feeling.

I have seen many learners go from a 60 to an 80 in only a few months. It feels amazing to know that we are helping so many learners reach their dreams.”

Buhle Dube

“My name is Buhle, I’m a tutor and an administrator at Master Maths Silverlakes.

I remember the first time I helped a learner with a math problem. I remember how her face lit up when I showed her a new way of solving a problem and I knew from that day that I enjoyed tutoring and I wanted to help more learners . So in short I became a tutor at Master Maths because of my passion for helping others. Master Maths is the best tutoring institute because not only do we just tutor Maths and Science but we also teach them how to prepare for tests or exams.”

Anica Coetzer

“I work at Master Maths as a tutor and the Administrator.

Working as a tutor isn’t only just explaining topics to learners, it is caring for them and having the need to help others, to make their lives a bit easier while doing maths.

Working to help achieve or just get learners’ closer to their dreams is my goal in life.

Master Maths has been helping learners since 1976 and haven’t stopped yet.”
