At Genius Premium Tuition, we’ve spent 30 years developing and honing our approach to premium private tuition; we aren’t just a tutor company – we get involved at every step of the process, and are committed to pairing you with the perfect tutor on our team, and getting great results.

First, we get to know a student to identify their strengths and weaknesses. After a comprehensive assessment with the student’s parents, teachers, and other stakeholders, we design an individualised tuition programme that aligns with their abilities and goals. We then send out a team of highly trained and vetted tutors who will bring out the best in the student and help them realise their full potential. We supervise and lead the programme to ensure a great result!

The Genius programme is for parents who demand the best and are willing to invest in their children. Our unique approach to tutoring makes us the premier choice for anyone seeking a truly exceptional learning experience. Our expert tutors and Education Managers provide a personalized learning experience that is unmatched in quality and effectiveness.

Relocation Tuition

We bridge the gap in curricula when moving from one school system to another, to ensure that when your child starts in their new school, they know everything their peers know.

Home Schooling

We offer support, guidance and premium private tuition for students who are moving out of the mainstream or have always been on a home school, distance, or online learning platform.

Unleash The Power Of Learning

Education is the most empowering force in the world. It builds knowledge, nurtures confidence, and breaks down barriers to progress. But in education, the one-size-fits-all model doesn’t work, because when it comes to comprehending and processing information, each student is as unique as his or her fingerprints. This belief is the foundation of our approach. At Genius Premium Tuition, we believe that there is no such thing as a bad learner — every child has the ability to grow their knowledge and understanding, and it’s up to us to find a way to reach them.
