Former Litigation Secretary, Monique de Klerk discovered her passion for teaching when she tutored students who were busy with their Grade 8, 9, 10, 11 and Matric certificates at the private school that her daughter attended in Kleinmond. Monique excelled at her new-found career and soon became the vice-principal of the tutoring centre. After realising that there was a direct need for a learning centre for high school learners, Kleinmond Cottage was established and has been well received by the public.
