• Welcome to Genius kid! After-school activity The perfect brain training for children 4-12 years old Mental Arithmetic Stimulative intellectual training for boosting IQ and EI Learning & Fun Math with abacus, Brain fitness exercises Logical tasks & Games
  • Benefits of Mental Arithmetic

    Long lasting skills and abilities that a child needs in life
    • Exceptional concentration and attention

      When the child is offered a problem, he/she must use one or more formulas depending on the numbers and the type of operation, so he/she must concentrate well in order to choose the best way to solve the problem, using the Abacus and the Mental Arithmetic techniques children develop a better focus and concentration.

    • Excellent short term and long term memory

      At the beginning, an abacus is used to learn counting techniques, later children learn to do calculations in their head by forming a mental image of a number on the abacus and are able to do all mathematical operations with many numbers in mind. In this way, the long and short term memory will be trained continuously.

    • Analytical and logical thinking

      Calculating is a process to be conducted by the left hemisphere of the brain, which is linear, B&W, rigid, based on calculations and words and it’s our inner mathematician, children need to solve mathematical problems by thinking about all the possible ways, this process is teaching fast analysys and synthesys while children are solving a very complex algorithms.

    • Problem solving skills

      Our unique programme of brain training allows the development of maximum speed of perception and information processing using fast calculation, allowing the children to approach problem solving from both a creative and analytical perspective.

    • Photographic memory - better imagination and visualization

      Our math calculation problems are presented as operations written in arabic numbers and, through the activation of the right hemisphere of the brain, these numbers and operations should be visualized and presented on abacus. The right hemisphere of the brain thinks in images, it is creative and full of colors so this type of activity boosts a kid’s imagination and visualization.

    • Boosted IQ and EI

      According to a research study of the Manchester University, children’s IQ could be boosted for +7.11 points through practicing Mental Arithmetic.

  • Mental Arithmetic has a positive impact on the development of thinking and improves the way the child listens, processes and understands information, conceives and creates certain ideas, recognizes details, performs certain actions, and solves problems.

    Mathematics is the cradle of all creations, without which the world couldn’t move an inch, a fundamental part of human thought and logic, and integral to attempts at understanding the world and ourselves. Math provides an effective way of building mental discipline and encourages logical reasoning, creativity, abstract or spatial thinking. Everyone needs math in their day-to-day life.
    In addition, mathematical knowledge plays a crucial role in understanding the contents of other school subjects such as science, social studies and even music and art.

    Once a child approaches the world of numbers in a creative and playful way , he/she steps into the world of mathematics without fear. Our method, through playing with math, makes children enthusiastic and committed to mathematics. Once they master math through Mental Arithmetic, they will be prepared for programming, finance, engineering, science, medicine, economics and many other jobs of the future that do not exist yet.

  • Methodology that we use

    The VAK & TBDP methods
  • Scientific researches have shown that the best results are achieved when in the learning process information is received through different senses because in that way the largest number of neuronal connections in the brain are activated. Our program is based on:

  • The TBDP (Total Brain Development Program) represents a system of overall brain development that stimulates the activation of both brain hemispheres in the early stages of life. Activation of both hemispheres generates creation of the nerve fibers (synapses). As a result of this activation, a series of mental abilities, such as memory, intelligence, concentration, imagination are being improved.

    The VAK Method (Visual – Audit – Kinaesthetic) is a method developed on the basis of neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and involves the inclusion of three senses (vision, hearing, touch) in the learning process.
