Growing up my after-school activities consisted of dance and cheerleading. Guess what I don’t do now as an adult? You guessed it, dancing and cheering. No one cares if I can do a graceful pas de bourrée in ballet or hit that clean back-handspring. What do I do as an adult you may ask? I use math and coding skills to create dashboards, measure analytics, and teach math to students of all ages here at Genie Academy.
If I had Genie Academy as a child I genuinely believe that the sky would have been the limit for me. Without it, I was an honors student and always got by through grade school with no issues at all while graduating at the top of my class. When it came to college, I was smacked in the face when it came to math. Why such a difference? I was terrible at simple math. With Genie Academy’s abacus method, I would have breezed through my calculus classes. Without it, every problem was such a process for me to solve, so I quickly changed majors to avoid math at all costs.
If you are even considering enrolling your child in Genie Academy classes, believe me, it is the right move. Our coding classes teach real industry-standard skills and abacus math teaches mental math that exercises the brain daily. I have a 1.5-year-old today and am counting down the days until I can get him going on the abacus at Genie Academy!
