At Genie Academy, we believe that every child is a genius in their own way. Every child learns differently and has the ability to learn anything. Children have an innate ability to learn and can succeed to their highest potential as long as they have a support system that recognizes and caters to their strengths and weaknesses. No child is a lost cause, despite how they may be struggling. Here at Genie Academy, we celebrate every child’s success!
People retain information best when multiple senses are involved. An abacus is a multi-sensory tool that enables Genie Academy students to learn and retain information. Students are able to touch the beads on the abacus, watch them move, and visualize the movement in their heads when they do mental math. The combination of all of these senses not only helps with mental math but also helps students focus on their work.
One of the main elements of the Genie Academy program is the
focus on visualization. Many sports stars and celebrities
attribute their success to visualization of some kind.
Our awesome teachers are totally dedicated to the success of your child. Many of our teachers work in schools or are pursuing some form of education at the graduate or undergraduate level. Our teachers undergo extensive training in order to be most effective in the classroom, and many of them have prior content knowledge as well. Genie Academy teachers make math fun!
In addition to learning math on the abacus, Genie Academy students also practice Common Core Math. Common Core Math is the content that students learn in school that adheres to State standards. At Genie Academy, students receive extra practice each week in subjects such as decimals, geometry, fractions, and more, in order to keep them on pace in school. Genie Academy students are also able to apply their abacus and mental math concepts to their Common Core, enabling them to complete schoolwork more quickly.
The developers of the Genie Academy program have put research into practice. How do we know? Kids are loving the program and are excited to come to class. In class, they are having fun, and they can't wait to pass their exams and get their new books for each Genie Academy grade!
Kids hate boring worksheets and repetition, and the developers of our program know this. Because of this fact, they developed excitement-filled, puzzle-like, and game-packed books that kids can't get enough of.
At Genie Academy, we limit eight students to a class. This allows the kids to get individualized attention, as well as the authentic classroom experience.
