Hi, ma’am, I just want to tell you that I received an unconditional offer from Trinity (Dublin), I just want to really thank you again for all the help that you have provided me. – Tom He

Thank you so much ma’am and thank you so much for all the effort and time you’ve put into me since grade 9. I really appreciate it and will remember it forever. 
From Hillouise.

Thank you mam, appreciate your help so much this year! I’d probably have dropped to Math Lit without your help!
From Eugene.

Hello Glenda hope you had a wonderful holiday also you should be proud of your students. Talia has been accepted for MBCHB Wits.

Hi ma’am, I hope this message finds you well. We received our matric results last night and I am very proud to say that I received 8 distinctions with an 88% for AP Maths and 88% overall. Thanks for all of the input in my studies during the course of the year, I appreciate it greatly! Please also let Angus know that I received 84% for English, a mark that I could not have achieved without his help. Enjoy the remainder of the holiday and all the best for the new year.
From Laura.

Hi Glenda, the AP Maths papers went alright, I didn’t finish either paper which was a bit annoying but I understood what to do and I actually really enjoyed writing them (I know, that sounds a bit odd)… Thank you for all of your help! And I really enjoyed your lessons.
From Alice.

Thank you for all your time and effort! I really appreciate it. You have gone above and beyond.

Dear Dr Nixon, thank you for everything, especially all your love and kindness.

Dear Dr Nixon, thank you so much that’s awfully kind of you. I don’t think he’ll be able to, as he’s writing both sessions tomorrow. You are the kindest lady we know. Thank you so much for everything.

Ulrich says Maths went very well.
We must thank you.

Thanks Dr Nixon, you’re such a wonderful lady.

Hi Glenda, just to let you know Terry got 74 % for maths, he is extremely happy with his results. Thank you for your teaching. Regards, Vanessa.

We remember the great Nelson Mandela with some of his quotes.


“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

“If there are dreams about a beautiful South Africa, there are also roads that lead to their goal. Two of these roads could be named Goodness and Forgiveness.”

NalsonMandelaChange“I like friends who have independent minds because they tend to make you see problems from all angles.”

“It always seems impossible until it’s done”
“Few things make the life of a parent more rewarding and sweet as successful children”

 For Madiba, one of the most important things is for every person to be educated:

LoveEducateEmpower“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”

Set your goals and then work towards them

“If you have an objective in life, then you want to concentrate on that and not engage in infighting with your enemies. You want to create an atmosphere where you can move everybody towards the goal you have set for yourself – as well as the collective for which you work.”
