About Us

Online teaching is our game

DTIA began with the idea of teaching and learning remotely back in 2012. At this point internet connectivity was still developing and most schools and households who could afford it, worked without Wi-Fi. Founder and CEO, Danie Boneschans researched many ways to develop a sort of online program that could help learners learn additional languages via an online or interactive program of sorts. And so the journey to remote learning and online teaching slowly became a reality. 

In the beginning, parents and teachers were sceptical about the idea of using a computer to interact with learners. What about the social aspect and human interaction were amongst the many concerns. Although these are real things to worry about, DTIA, formerly known as DanieTeach, wanted to focus on how to get learners engaged again in their own learning, without taking away the valuable social interaction we as humans still need. 

 

Today we host more than 100 learners in our various online courses and have made valuable connections with teachers who are specialists in their subject field. We connect learners of all ages with teachers of all backgrounds which makes our courses unique. Our small online classes can accommodate up to 6 learners and individual attention is given to each. Our community of teachers understands the value in personally getting in touch with parents and to guide our future generations with positivity and clarity. 

We welcome all who would like to join our family and encourage each and every one to take responsibility for their learning. Become an active online learner and be the change you wish to see in the world.
