Our process starts with a family consultation at our assessment centre. We get to know the student – we find out about their study habits, routines, interests and goals. This includes both an in-depth qualitative and detailed quantitative review of the student’s scholastic career up to that point.
We select tutors from our team based on learning style and personality. We aren’t an agency; we know all of our tutors personally, and as far as we are concerned, choosing the right mentor – someone your child will look up to and connect with – is crucial!
One-On-One Lessons In Your Home:
Lessons happen one-on-one in your home or at your school. The tutors build a working relationship with the student and move through the outcomes effectively and constructively. We set and keep track of work to be done in between lessons.
Our mission is very simple:
‘To grow our students and staff, and to help them reach their full potential.’
Our Company Vision
We wake up every day thinking about how:
‘To be the best premium private tuition firm in the world, and to provide the most compelling educational experience for our customers.’
Without the right tutor, everything else that we do is irrelevant. We match the right tutor to the right student.
Students who connect with and look up to their tutors will naturally want to do well and impress – this is why we work so hard to find, train, and nurture our tutors. At Genius, successful tutor applicants must not only be academically brilliant, but they need to be the kind of people who care about making a difference. We admit it: we expect a lot from our tutors, which is why only 3% of applicants with As in matric actually make it through our vetting and training programme.
Our team of Education Managers are the magic elves who are responsible for ensuring the success of our premium private tuition programmes.
We admit it: we expect a lot from our EMs – we only hire champions who dominated academically in high school, and once they have proven themselves as a successful tutor, they undergo a full-time 3-month training course to give them a foundation in teaching, syllabi, national and international study, educational philosophy, psychology, proactivity, parenting, love, and leadership.
The Leadership Team, in collaboration with Education Managers, works tirelessly to ensure that Genius Premium Tuition and our staff honour our commitment of excellence to our students, parents and staff.
Every so often, a student may need a little help from a tutor when cramming for an exam. We aren’t those guys. We take a long-term approach to education. We don’t just teach the material – we teach how to learn, how to enjoy, and — ultimately — how to cultivate a mindset that welcomes and encourages long-term sustainable success.
