Everyday Math is a Math program that utilizes Calculators to teach Math. Many parents and teachers agree that it confuses kids. In fact, the New York Times published an article questioning the effectiveness of Everyday Math. As a parent, you should be very concerned if your school system has Everyday Math as its curriculum.

Despite what the creators of Everyday math say. Calculators make kids dumb. At Genie Academy, we believe that kids should use the most powerful computer there is. The Human Brain. Therefore at Genie Academy, we teach kids to do Mental Math. These kids can do Mental Math faster than most adults using a calculator. Why make your kids dumb when you can unleash their Genius? Kids enjoy working on the Abacus. It's like a toy. A very powerful toy. Kids love using the abacus as a tool and doing mental math challenges. Many Genie Academy kids even try to do extra work so that they can get their new books and do the trickier math computations!
The Genie Academy program gives a solid workout to your child’s brain cells. Research shows that children exposed to a higher level of mental activity have higher synapses. Synapses are the connections between brain cells. Geniuses and higher-performing people have higher synapses than average people. Genie Academy parents have reported some amazing success stories. From higher grades to increased focus and concentration. Winning in sports to increasing their creative ability. Music teachers report that Genie Academy kids learn music faster.
Our teachers are committed to making the Genie Academy experience fun for kids. When the time is right, they shed their “adult” demeanors and act silly with the kids to make sure that the kids love the process of learning and growing. They adjust their teaching to particular needs and always know when to help and how to help. They are not only teachers but mentors, to the kids.
Classes at Genie Academy have an absolute maximum of 8 kids per teacher for the Junior/Senior Genie kids. And 5 kids per teacher for the Toddler Genie kids. Kids receive individual attention from our highly-qualified and rigorously-trained teachers. At the same time, kids are able to experience a classroom setting with a fixed schedule and structure, as well as competitive games and rewards for their hard work. This classroom setting experience prepares our younger students for independence in a classroom environment and aids our older students in getting organized and self-sufficient. Parents love the mix of individual attention and classroom structure.
