Empowering Students and Teachers

Reflective Learning is an online tool designed to help both teachers and students in primary and secondary schools address learning gaps. Our diagnostic tests identify gaps in essential Maths and English concepts that often hinder the learning of new material. Once these gaps are pinpointed, Reflective Learning guides students on a personalised educational journey tailored to their current level of understanding, ensuring mastery through regular reassessments.
Our mission extends beyond academic improvement. We aim to foster positive learning behaviours by monitoring students’ pace, accuracy, and dedication. We also promote a growth mindset and help students develop metacognitive skills, which are essential for independent learning. Ultimately, our goal is to equip students with the tools they need to overcome educational challenges and succeed in the future.


Being named among The Africa EdTech 50 by Holon IQ is a testament to Reflective Learning’s commitment to personalised education, closing learning gaps, and empowering students and teachers.
