Geno House invested significant amount of time and effort to study students' learning behaviour and develop Learning Systems and Education Materials that empower students to speed up their learning curves for achieving Academic Success in Science!
With the new AL scoring system, it's no longer how well you have done against the cohort, but how much you can achieve for yourself. It's no longer competing against the peers but instead, to succeed together.
In such environment, small group learning stands out to be more beneficial in boosting students' learning.
Apart from having structured curricula, learning in a small group enhances one's ability to brainstorm, share ideas and to discover new knowledge and perspectives while giving ample attention to each individual. These activities help one to cultivate critical and analytical thinking skills as they open doors to more in-depth discussions. Moreover, group learning promotes healthy competition among peers that motivates one to do his/her best, be consistent and disciplined – the desirable traits of an Achiever.
K.E.E.P. For Effective Small Group Learning
Therefore, to ensure the mastery of Science and its effectiveness in a small group setting, Geno House devises the K.E.E.P. system of learning.
K.E.E.P is a comprehensive system that encompasses effective ways to acquire information, process those information and retain them in the long-term memory. An example is to produce carefully curated topical summary maps, embedded with thinking processes and commonly tested concepts. These summary maps have proven to cut down as much as 80% of revision time. Geno House also makes use of mnemonics to improve memory retention of important content!
To establish students' competency, Geno House equipped students with the S.O.A.R. methodology, where they focus on streamlined thinking processes to solve science problems.
To evaluate their learning outcome, Geno House closely monitors and reviews the application of our strategies on resources from our curated materials, school assignments and past year papers. Our weekly lesson materials are slected from our extensive database of questions created by our curriculum team, and are customised to align with the progress of the classes to ensure that learning takes place at the optimal pace for our students.
On top of that, Geno House purposefully sets timed assignments to prepare students for major examinations, which is especially important as many schools have ceased testing at various milestones.
Over the years, the K.E.E.P. system has proven to help over thousands of students regardless of past academic performances to achieve remarkable improvement in Science, with many P3 to P6 students consistently scoring above 80% for tests and exams.

Simplify. Organise. Analyse. Rationalise
S.O.A.R. is a streamlined thinking process developed by Geno House to help students manage information systematically. It is applicable as a study method as well as a solving process. It involves breaking down of hefty amount of information into manageable units and applying appropriate strategies to solve Science.
It encompasses our strategic analytical process (3C-analysis) to approach solving in a step-by-step manner and presenting answers with the right structure and keywords targeted for scoring. S.O.A.R. particularly benefits students who understand the concepts but find difficulty in producing perfect score answers.
