My initial perception about the services provided by organisations like Genius Specialised Education was that it is an expensive exercise, relating to something that I can probably do myself. I was completely wrong! Partnering with Genius was the best investment I could ever have made for my children. Both my wife and I are fairly educated, and we probably have the capacity to steer our children in the right direction – but the reality is that our children need to be well above average to be the best that they can be in future. Genius provided our daughters with such an empowering foundation – even I am impressed (and it takes a lot to impress me).

From the very first meeting with Genius, everything was slick and professional. The conversation building up to the proposal that was put together for Refuwe and Kutlwano allowed us to understand what Genius has to offer, and the gaps that this would close in what we (as parents) have to offer. We articulated our expectations and the reasons for wanting Genius to support us. We walked away comfortable that the partnership with them is definitely what we require. It was also comforting to observe that they would say so if no intervention was really required. Now that is very rare!

The tutor assigned to our kids is an amazing young lady. It was encouraging to meet such a young lady who gets along very well with the girls – and yet she is also very matured and clear about the objectives that we all want to achieve. The tutor had better success than me in getting the girls to work, organise their lives, and be smart in how they tackle things . This says a lot about how Genius recruits their tutors.

I was sceptical about this journey, but I have only been impressed by Genius. The office team also interacts with you to check on your experience. Of course, there is also evidence of improvement in my daughters’ performance (including the little one who is nine years old, Kutlwano). The conversation about Maths has changed at home. Kutlwano now talks about having done better than one of the top performers in her class, and her teacher having commended her for her improvement.
