We’ve been operating since 1993 and have clocked more than 190 000 hours of one-on-one private tuition. In that time, we have developed an expertise in many subjects, curricula, syllabi, and standardised tests.
Every one of our private tutors scored distinctions in high school, has studied a subject-relevant field at university, passed our intake Subject exams with distinction, and then completed our tutor training programme with distinction.
Our private tutors don’t just know the work, they know how to teach it; our students frequently improve their marks by 20%.
At Genius, we aren’t just about teaching students how to pass a subject. Our Academic Coaches are there to enhance a student’s general academic experience and equip them with tools and strategies to help them ‘win the game of school.’
The role of the coach is to facilitate the growth of a student into a productive, effective, and independent learner by teaching them academic and life leadership skills. Coaches work towards a global improvement in all academic skills and their effectiveness can be measured by a learner’s overall academic performance.
These skills ultimately impact a student’s effectiveness in their future endeavours – university, their careers, and beyond.
Every one of our SAT tutors has passed the SAT at the 99th percentile; our Students frequently improve their score by 200 points.
We then create an action plan and send trained SAT Math and SAT English tutors to get you up to speed on:

Over the last 28 years, we are proud to have helped students get into universities such as Harvard and Yale.
Every one of our NBT tutors has passed our tutor training programme with distinction and then excelled at our internal NBT subject tests.
We then create an action plan and send trained NBT Math and NBT English tutors to get you up to speed on:
Did you know? The NBT MAT in June is not the same as the NBT MAT towards the end of the year, and is often substantially out of sync with IEB and Schools. 50% of students say there was math that they hadn’t yet learned in school.
Over the last 28 years, we are proud to have helped students get into universities such as UCT, Stellies, UP and Wits.
We understand the enormous amount of stress families undergo when relocating, especially with children who are still midway through their local curriculum. We ensure that your kid passes their entrance tests and arrives at their new school knowing everything their peers know.
Over the last 28 years, we are proud to have helped students transitions to school systems in countries such as the UK, Australia, the US, and Switzerland.
We offer support, guidance and premium private tuition for students who are moving out of the mainstream or have always been on a home school, distance, or online learning platform.
Whether you’re just starting out, or already working with an online or home school programme, we’ve got you covered.
We are proud to have supported self-directed learning students, home school students and online learning students in syllabi and curricula such as the IEB, CAPS, Cambridge, GED, and American K12 Curriculum.
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 “Genius Extension Module” programme. Keeping in line with the student’s interests and passions, these modules involve projects that the tutor conducts with the student. They are not school-based; rather they 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 SUPERVISED TO ENSURE SAFETY.
In our Extension Modules, we cover topics such as:
