Privacy Policy

1. Information We Collect and How We Use It

Budding Genius may store the information you submit through our website, as well as information we collect in connection with your use of the website. One of the first things learned in teacher training is that every student has a preferred learning style. Some are visual learners, while others learn best by the physical act of doing. Some students take in auditory information well, while others perform best when they have the information in writing to support their learning. We use the information to assess your child’s ability and learning style so we can match the right level of learning and the right tutor.

Among the information we collect, please note:

1. Account Information: If you create an account on Budding Genius Academy, we may store and use your full name, email address, postal code and other information you may provide with your accounts, such as your child’s gender and birth date.
