Dear Marique and Dean,

It is with pleasure that I write this testimonial.

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.

The Genius team were efficient and wasted no time in developing a short term plan to addresses the immediate requirement of completing the entrance tests. The children were successful in receiving a number of school offers. Since then we have continued a study programme to focus on some of those sections of the UK syllabus that are not covered in South Africa.

The Genius team are thorough and spend time fully assessing your requirements before putting a study plan into place. This pre-planning definitely assists in making the Genius programme bespoke and efficient as it is tailored to your specific needs. The Genius team have a very good knowledge of the difference and similarities between the South Africa and UK school curriculum.

The Genius tutors are also professional and knowledgeable on their respective subjects. They have all worked well under challenging circumstances and made every effort to get the best out of the children and assist the children in improving on those subject areas that required improvement. The Genius team have made lessons fun yet focused and disciplined. Detailed feedback is provided after each lesson which focuses on how lessons went and what any concerns or next steps might be. The Genius team do require that homework be completed in order to assist in reinforcing principles taught. My children have enjoyed working with the Genius team and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending their services.
