My name is Marisa Daly and I am a parent to James (21 years old) and Grace (17 years old).
I was referred to Genius by a psychologist who had conducted some psychometric assessments for me. After I met with Dean, I was impressed with his professionalism and passion for helping people excel and decided to contract his services for my son, who was in high school at the time. James had some specific goals for his Grade 12 final exams and wanted to give himself the best chance of success, particularly in the areas of Maths, Science, English and Afrikaans. James started regular tutoring in Grade 10, with several Genius tutors, who were all excellent. He continued with tutoring assistance through to his Grade 12 end-of-year exams and successfully reached his academic goals (7 A’s). His confidence has grown over the years, especially in English, a subject which he was not particularly excited about.
Having seen how much James benefitted from the tutoring service, we set up the same tutoring support for our daughter Grace, from about Grade 7. She has benefitted greatly from Maths and Accounting tutoring- most especially Maths, which has helped grow her confidence in tackling the subject. Grace’s tutors have been excellent. They are all so passionate and engaged and Grace always feels happy at the end of the lesson. She has developed a special relationship with Jacqui and sees her as an inspirational role model.
The Genius Education Managers have all been professional, empathetic, involved, and knowledgeable. We benefit greatly from their academic summary reports and enjoy the analytics that they present to us- it is always interesting to chart progress and trends. On the very rare occasions where we have had an issue, we have always found the Education Managers responsive and proactive.
Genius is 100% worth the investment in our children’s education and future opportunities. Since we engaged with them, we have never given a second thought to any other tutoring service and have referred Genius to friends, who have also contracted with Genius for their children.
