Academic Coaching

At Genius, we aren’t just about teaching students how to pass a subject, our Coaches are there to enhance a student’s general academic experience so that it can be seamlessly integrated into their life.

The role of the coach is to facilitate an environment that is conducive to study without the parents’ involvement. Coaches work towards an overall improvement in all academic skills and their effectiveness may be measured by a learner’s overall academic performance.

ALONG WITH SUPERVISION OF HOMEWORK, ACADEMIC COACHING SUPPORT FALLS INTO 4 GENERAL CATEGORIES:

  • Time management – students are taught efficient time-management skills to optimise the time they have available for studying.
  • Study skills – Each student is as unique as his or her fingerprint. We all learn and process information in subtly different ways. Which is why, we embrace different approaches to learning, allowing the student to choose which works for them. The end result is that the student not only improves their performance in school but also their ability to learn in general.
  • Exam taking techniques – Optimisation mechanisms for exam situations, for example knowing which questions to answer first, how to score marks even if they can’t answer a question, coping with time pressures, and how to approach certain question structures.
  • Stress Management – This module is all about waking up to one’s sources of stress, and implementing models and tools to mitigate academic stress in the long term and in the short term.

Coaching vs Tutoring

The tutor is there to teach a learner a particular subject. They are subject specialists, having excelled in that discipline at school and at tertiary level, hence they should be able to help with any problem the learner encounters in their field of expertise.

They often give extra homework in order to reinforce concepts and consolidate knowledge. This may, in some instances, be supported by Academic enhancement facilitated by one of our Coaches in order to enhance the effectiveness of lessons.

The tutor is seen as supplementary support to the learner’s primary educator at school. In this way, they complement and support the work of the teacher.

RELOCATION SERVICES

At Genius we understand the enormous amount of stress families undergo when relocating, especially with children that are still midway through their local curriculum. Our aim with our relocation service is to provide children the support they need in order to seamlessly bridge the gap between their current & future curriculum requirements.

OUR PROCESS:

  • We start with assessments which include: diagnostic tests, communications with the new school and face-to-face meetings with students existing teachers.
  • We use all of this data to do a gap analysis, and design lesson plans.
  • A custom team of our on-staff tutors, who have been very carefully vetted and subsequently trained in the various syllabi (We have specialists in different syllabi) is chosen.
  • These tutors then go to the home to do one-on-one private lessons, working through the gaps.
  • We monitor progress with regular timed mock examinations at our assessment center.

FEATURED TESTIMONIAL

URSULA NOBREGA – HEAD-INVESTOR RELATIONS INVESTEC LTD.

“We started working with Genius at the end of 2018. We are relocating to the UK and our children had to write entrance tests at a number of London schools. Genius assisted in performing a “gap” assessment of the SA curriculum vs the UK curriculum. They then assessed the children and spent time with the children’s South African teachers in order to prepare a detailed and thorough study and tuition plan. The programme was intense as we only had a short time to prepare…”

Extension Modules

Nothing helps a student learn better than getting their hands dirty. Sometimes abstract concepts are made easier to understand when the student is physically involved in bringing the solution to life. This is the thinking behind our “Extension Modules” programme. Keeping in line with the student’s interests and passion, these modules involve projects that the tutor conducts with the student. They are not school based but are designed to be fun and engaging and to fire up the imagination.

What kid wouldn’t love to learn how to make a smoke bomb? And, in this computer age, who wouldn’t benefit from gaining knowledge about the inner workings of a computer? Our modules involve hands-on experience with science and technology, from building an electronic circuit or a CO2 propelled rocket to constructing models, learning to code, or designing with CAD software to produce your own 3D printed or laser cut toy.

ALL PROJECTS WILL BE DONE TOGETHER WITH OUR TUTORS AND WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED TO ENSURE SAFETY.
