As it is usually said that charity begins at home. With the help and support from her father (Moloko Matlala), her sister (Tumelo Matlala) who is also the co-founder of Otarel Tutors and her husband (Philemon Kandengwa), Lerato has managed to run a successful and aspiring organisation for four consecutive years.
Mathematics, Science and Accounting are always regarded as one of the trickiest subjects in the history of subjects. Lerato says even though they can appear as difficult, they are critical in improving South Africa’s economic prosperity. Otarel ensures that students find these subjects fun and easy to tackle by using different and simple methods and approaches.

She told Tsa Pitori that they strive to ensure that the learning material is not only effective in helping their students to achieve their desired results. “Our learning materials are designed to bring out the best in our students by adding value to the way they perceive their world”-said Lerato.
