This, he followed by becoming both Head of Academics and Deputy Principal at a renowned IEB school in Johannesburg. From there, Jacques joined the staff of the University of the Witwatersrand where he completed his Honours (First Class), Master’s and PhD in Mathematics Education. He is currently the Deputy Head of School (Teacher Education) at Wits University and has served his community on a variety of platforms. He teaches Mathematics on television, both public and private, in cinemas across the country and on WhatsApp; in addition, he has presented numerous seminars to both students and teachers, on Mathematics and its teaching methodologies. Jacques has published a total of eight Mathematics textbooks and revision manuals, and is experienced as both national and international examiner of Mathematics. His passion is Mathematics, and he currently teaches the International Baccalaureate and Advanced Programme Mathematics.

Sibusiso Buthelezi began his teaching career in a tutoring capacity, working as an academic officer at an organization that offered intervention programs to state schools in Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal. He then worked as a professional educator at Orlando West Secondary School, where he received an award for improving and producing record Mathematics results at the school. In 2018, Sibusiso moved to Florida Park High School to teach FET and Senior Phase Mathematics. It was during this time that he also began presenting Mathematics on live Television.

As of January 2021, Sibusiso has been working at Redhill School, teaching IEB Mathematics, Advanced Programme Mathematics and Middle Years Programme Mathematics; Sibusiso is also involved in training junior students for the annual Mathematics Olympiad and Tour de Maths.

Julian Osborn began studying Chemical Engineering after leaving school. Whilst studying, Julian tutored high school learners in Mathematics and Physical Science, and it was this that led to his interest in teaching as a career. After graduating top of his class, Julian completed a BSc Degree in Mathematics Education, at Wits University. During his Honours years, Julian taught Mathematics on Mindset Learn, alongside Dr. Jacques Du Plessis and Sibusiso Buthelezi. Once he had completed his Honours Degree, he took up a position at King David Linksfield where he taught for two years, before being asked to join the Department of Mathematics at Redhill School.

Lauren Friedmanhas been teaching for the past 23 years at various schools as well as privately. Lauren has an Honours Degree in Physiology, Mathematics and Statistics from the University of the Witwatersrand. Lauren is passionate about her work and forms lasting relationships with all of her students, past and present.
