About Us

Bodill Education is an education centred business, led by founders Greg and Karen Bodill, and a selected group of handpicked, qualified teachers. Based in Durban North, Bodill Education primarily provides extra lessons to pupils Grade 1-12, specialising in Maths, Applied Maths, Afrikaans, English and Foundation Phase education.

We are also very passionate about other forms of work in education, ranging from projects with corporate clients (like the Mr Price Group) and schools alike, the development of learning content, speaking and consulting, and arranging events for educators and specialists. As a business we fully believe in the work that we do and the power it has to change lives, and to address the educational needs of the country.
