At Genius Premium Tuition, our coaches assist students with their general academic experience to help enhance their overall performance at primary or secondary school.
The role of a coach is to guide your child to be able to study on their own effectively. Academic coaches work towards developing the overall academic skills of a student, and this can be seen in an improvement in the student’s academic achievements.
The Coach is there to enhance a student’s general academic experience.
