While bringing up two children, we experienced a lack of quality and professional tutoring in the area. During our interactions with other parents, we realized almost everyone had similar issues! They all expressed their need and desire for the same. That is how we happened - we are a solution to parents, hard-pressed for time, and of course for the students too!
The Vision of Learning Unlimited is to nurture students such that they are ready for the new technologies, new environments, and new pedagogies that they will surely come across in their next level of learning.
Reaching out to all students, we strive to provide an affordable and unparalleled learning experience in a supportive and caring environment that leads students to successfully complete their goals.
We like to stress the fact that when we talk of education, we increasingly embrace new ways of learning, including learning-by-doing, collaborative learning, adaptive learning, and learning by reinforcement.
Every instructor is completely trained and certified in Learning Unlimited's "Approach to Learning" system.Why was Learning Unlimited set up ?
Learning Unlimited is committed to professionalizing and legitimizing the training process and to providing it in way that enables and encourages the student rather than providing a crutch. We are committed to providing impartial, no-nonsense educational advice.How does Learning Unlimited select its instructors ?
Instructors submit a skeleton application and are judged on their experience, how long they can commit for (we only take instructors who can commit for over two years), and their cademic record.
Successful instructors from this stage are then interviewed face-to-face, and have to provide references.
Learning Unlimited Instructors' most important referencing is internal though: you will have the chance to speak to other parents who have used the instructor before.Who are Learning Unlimited's instructors ?
We choose intelligent and likeable people to be our instructors. While it is a true that intelligence does not make you a good instructor, we like our instructors to be passionate and knowledgeable about their subjects so that they can field the most curious of questions from their students.Study buddies
The easiest instructors to source are the "young-guns", fresh out of university and keen for some extra cash while they decide their post-university plans. We receive many applicants from these sorts of instructors, and reject most of them. We take on a small amount as study-buddies, but generally we feel it is too precarious to take them on while they are unsure of their plans.Instructors
Most of Learning Unlimited's instructors are professional instructors. They are usually well aware of their plans for the next three or four years, at least, and use teaching as their main source of income around vocational plans. They have an intricate knowledge of exam syllabi, examiners' expectations and the common weaknesses of students.How does Learning Unlimited Instructors train its instructors ?
In its ambitions to professionalize teaching, Learning Unlimited only hires instructors who can commit for more than two years. Apart from the induction program that we have for all our instructors, there are special workshops and expert talks that are organized for them, periodically.The People
Our instructors are among the best in the industry. All of them hold Masters Degrees and many have Doctoral Degrees as well. Apart from being highly competent, they are highly adept at gauging the requirement of each student and if need be, they recommend a ratio of 1 : 1 of teacher student. Usually, our faculty members follow a ratio of 10 students : 1 teacher.
