Genie Academy Student jumps from Bs and Cs to the 99th Percentile on a National Exam

In just 11 months, Ella went from dreading math class to scoring at the 99th percentile on the highly-regarded TerraNova 2 (CAT 6) Aptitude Exam. That means she was in the top 1% of all kids taking the exam this year in the entire United States! math-genie-student-scores-99-percentile-on-terra-nova

What made the difference? Ella’s Mom Linda believes the support and teaching techniques at Genie Academy Plainsboro not only improved Ella’s math skills, but they also made her more confident. She said Ella looks forward to the end chant “ Genie Academy makes Math fun!” Linda believes this phrase helped Ella believe that math isn’t bad and helped Ella get excited about math.

Before joining Genie Academy, Ella was just your average second grader and like many students, she didn’t like math. Linda says before Genie Academy when she would ask Ella to try a problem, Ella would always get frustrated and say “I can’t. It’s too difficult.”

In the 11 months since Ella joined Genie Academy, her outlook has completely changed. Linda proudly notes that “Ella is not as apprehensive about doing Math work whether it be for school, Genie Academy, or over the summer, for enrichment. She has become more confident. Her overall attitude toward Math is more positive and she has more of a can-do approach instead of an “I can’t” approach.” And the best part is, this changes isn’t just limited to math. Ella’s overall confidence has improved in all of her subjects, and along with it, her ability to focus and desire to learn have skyrocketed!

This shift in mindset is a key element of the Genie Academy’s beliefs, that inside every child, there is a genius. Ella’s teacher, Mr. Phil explains “When you hear the chant for the first time, it really sounds silly, but it’s there for a reason— to self-program our students into believing ‘This is something I can do!’ We want them to know that not only can learning be fun, but learning is something they can be awesome at.”

All kids are like Ella. They are unaware of how amazing they are. Genie Academy can help nurture your child's love of learning and bring out their excellence. Don’t just take our word for it. Sign up for a free class today!
