Parental Seminars December 2016

... it is about maximizing a child's potential 

Dear friends,

Many have asked me to conduct parents seminars so I have put together these. It took me a while to get organized. 

Over the last twelve months, things have changed much. Some of my patents are now approved, and more and more schools and ministries are adopting our beliefs. I have now also updated the seminars with the new findings, research and development in the education environment. 

 The courses are: The Beginnings (Dec 10, morning) Nurturing Early Primary School Years (Dec 10, afternoon) Alternate Pathways (Dec 10, afternoon) 

The Beginnings is meant for parents with preschool children in preparing their children for academic pursuits. I remember my friends used to laugh at me for over-preparing my children for school. I am thankful I did. And because I did, they managed to do well enough to move directly from primary school to university level courses. It is not about just sending them to a dozen preschool activities, nor about signing up for every co-curriculum available. It is about time management and planning their future. So, I will be sharing with you how to give your kids a head start. You can sign up for The Beginnings here

The second seminar I will do is Nurturing Primary School Years, where I will discuss the importance of finding your child's passion and how to get him/her to academic excellence and possible acceleration whether or not the child is gifted. 

This year, for two reasons: change in examinations and improvement in technologies, I have changed the topics for this seminar quite drastically. Most of what I cover would not have been covered previously, as they are new research. 

This seminar is NOT about sending the kids to more and more tuition to catch up in the mad rat race. It is about preparing them for tertiary studies even at this young age, so that they can have an edge right up to university. Instead of just going for more tuition, there are more interesting ways to prepare students to do engaging work that will not only improve their academic results, but also prepare them beyond primary school years. We want to tap on them, without spending hours and hours doing so. 

You can sign up for Nurturing the Primary School Years here. This should be suitable if you a child already in or due for primary school. 

Lastly, I believe there are too many changes in our current education scene and there are new and better ways to navigate the education system. One common change is the use of technology or Edutech and the testing methodologies. So what does that mean? As you probably already know, I am always for acceleration and enrichment, and these must cater to every child and individually. 

I will be going through the resources available, and the strategies involved. The courses that are earning graduates big bucks, the career paths that yield the most happiness. We parents must take charge of our own children's education and therefore their destinies. 

So, if you want your children to have a differentiated or individualized education, you can do it alongside school and still help your children graduate from the university in their teens. I will be giving away the secrets and teaching you how to do it, without the expected stress. You can sign up for Alternate Pathways here

This seminar is for a parent with child of any age, who wants a differentiated education, and wants to know what he/she can do to help. I have arranged for an expert who is trained to help students find the gifts and then prepare parents to walk through possible paths with them. You will find these really insightful as you uncover and unlock the potential in each child.

As always, remember that if your family income is less than $2000, we provide a scholarship and the seminar is free. You just drop me a message on my Facebook Page. If your family income is between $2000-3000, you pay half. If you want to know about our social enterprise support, please read here.
