A group of students for students
Unlock started as a tutoring company and has slowly but surely developed into being a sense of community and support for students. We strive to show the world all that students are and all that students can be when given the support and belief.
We believe that student life is there to be lived, each day to be seized and to be done so stress free. We aim to not only keep our students up to date but to show them how to master the topic they are after and thus never again fall prey to the night before cram. Furthermore, we have adopted a more practical approach to learning and aim to apply the theory to make it more relevant and allow the student to understand 'why' behind what they are studying.
Work smart, Play Hard
WE ARE UNLOCK TUTORS
Introducing the people that make Unlock, Unlock.
We'd like to formally introduce you to the geniuses behind Unlock's new look. With an undergrad in Marketing and a postgrad in making magic happen, they embody the phrase actions speak louder than words. When they aren't reaching upwards of 2000 students in a day's work they are continually looking to shake up and improve Unlock's way of connecting with others.
Now don't let the smiles fool you - these two mean business. We at Unlock are yet to meet two people as driven to find the right candidate and as capable of meeting a deadline. Nothing and no one better get in this formidable combo's path or prepare to face an HR write up like no other.
‘Life becomes really interesting the day that you realise the world is run by people no smarter than you.'
- Steve Jobs
In most of societies there are a number of positions, filled by a number of people.
Unfortunately this isn't always the case. Meet Anja, a real life Jack in the box. She never ceases to amaze us with her ability to adapt into any role she is given. While keeping an eye on the end goal, she is already working on developing the strategy needed to get us there. We are always so excited to see what the next innovation will be.
'jack of all trades'
How do you introduce someone you probably already know... well here it goes anyway.
Meet Jords, our resident Tik Tokker and general good guy. When he isn't doing flips in the park or complaining about storage - he puts together some pretty amazing videos. He pretty much encapsulates all that Unlock is and all it strives to be, but don't tell him that.
Now for most people crunching some numbers on excel sounds like a prison sentence.
Well not everyone, meet JT. Unlock's numbers gal and very own CA. We are yet to see a spreadsheet more crisp and a budget more precise. But don't get it wrong this 'trap god' varies far from the norm and ensure all contributions to the benderfund are accounted for
Imagine there was a superhero, but their power was exceeding expectations.
Well there is, meet Kayla. Our resident fitness freak that now gets most of her workouts marching around the workshops. She is without a doubt the most efficient and innovative person we have are yet to encounter and won't stop until she's gone above and beyond the call of duty.
Remember why you started in the first place
Introducing the man behind the lense.
When Project T isn’t chucking the next tune on, he also shmaaaks for a meander up lions head.
We are yet to meet a bigger team player. Bunyans and all Gussy never let the third degree sunburn stop him from smiling and it’s such a privilege to be surrounded by your optimism and charisma. Not to mention the wicked shots you capture - you are truly incredibly talented!
Now to say this bunch is stressy and depressy would be the furtherest thing from the truth.
Introducing Red & Yellow's top recruits and a force to be reckoned with. When this bunch isn't shmutting their lives away, they are coming up with game changing strategies and never ceasing to improve upon Unlock's workshop attendance for the right reasons.
While they may resemble constantia mom's in the making, this team has a drive and determination like no other and we can't wait to witness them revolutionise the marketing & sales industries.
Introducing Unlock's very own story teller
Apart from working nights and swimming with sharks, she also makes movies!
While offset she may not be an onions finely chopped kind of gal, onset she quite possibly may be the most professional individual we are yet to come across. Clipboard in hand, nothing and no one is standing in her way!
The Unlock family continues to be blown away by the brilliance you create and performances you inspire.
Unlock has sought after top brands that not only enhance but improve the experience our students and tutors have with regard to university life. Our goal is to make sure that we offer an all inclusive learning environment, even down to helping you choose between a Cortado or a latte. Our solution to learning is and will continue being completely future proof by allowing our users to store their notes on the cloud and have access to learning at all times.
UNLOCK GIVES BACK
We believe that every student , no matter their financial situation deserves the right to adequate academic assistance. Therefore, we would like to appeal to students receiving financial help or those who are in need of assistance, to reach out to us and we will be able to offer discounted lessons to allow you to get the help you need.
the men behind save & shoof
LUKE & LIJE
What started as a casual conversation about how crazy it is that lockdown has basically put universities and the world on pause , ended up being the first step in creating UNLOCK. Friends from years before, Luke Tollman and Elijah Greenhill, had always had a keen interest in innovating, inspiring and giving back. This site and platform is a result of countless hours of work and effort to make sure that each and every person that comes across UNLOCK has the best experience possible.
Luke is an Accounting student from Stellies , and Lije has been studying overseas for the past 2 years and is now studying Computer Science at Wits. The fusion of the 2 minds lead to something great. A beautiful, innovative and genuine platform to help those get the academic help they need.
UNLOCK Tomorrow, Today.
Each UNLOCK tutor is a leading student in their respective course. They have been at the optimal level of academic excellence since High School and are prime candidates to tutor our students
At UNLOCK we would like to encourage mentorship throughout the company. We encourage each tutor to act as a mentor and leader to their students. To make the extra effort above the academia to mentor and guide their students.
We as students, completely understand the need for a community and a sense of belonging. We at UNLOCK want to build a community where students can come to learn, and tutors can come to teach. We want to build meaningful and long lasting friendships that inspire our tutors and students to be better.
Most tutoring sites and platforms have an element of formality that may be daunting and unwelcoming to students and tutors. However, here at UNLOCK ,we have found the perfect balance between work and play. Our site is quirky yet formal, our tutors are fun yet intelligent and most of all our goals are focused yet attainable.
We want to enable our students and tutors to grow into the role they want to one day fulfil. Why wait to start putting your theory into practice? We hope to inspire confidence and self-belief that allows the student to become a young professional.
