Why Do You Need A Mentor?

Everyone learns in a unique way. As confirmed by the Science of Expertise, the only approach that can lead you to mastery is one that includes a Mentor who will understand what makes you unique, guide you, and give you personalised feedback.

Our Genius Mentors are trained to be able to do just that. Using their experience, their role is to help you with everything related to mastering the most essential and necessary skill: the art of learning.
  • They will gather your goals
  • They will analyse your Cognitive Profile
  • They will create a personalised plan for you to follow in order to achieve both your goals and mastery in applying the Genius Method
  • They will give you feedback to correct those mistakes that you are not yet able to recognise
  • They will work with you 1-to-1 to hold you accountable to the high standards you set for yourself
  • They will celebrate your success with you

What it Takes to Become a Mentor

The training to become a Genius Mentor is intense, designed to challenge each prospective Mentor to push their limits when it comes to learning.

Not only are prospective Mentors expected to apply everything they have learned at inGeniusly at the highest level, but they are also required to learn how to make sure that someone with a completely different Cognitive Profile from theirs will be able to achieve the same results.

Our Mentors


  • Sublime trainer with the ability to answer even the most insidious questions and lead you to achieve incomparable mastery of the Genius method. From his natural people skills and contagious laughter you would never believe he actually used to work in investment banking! [this description hasn’t been approved by him…]



    With unmatched determination and dedication, as a 19-years-old girl she moved to London with €1000 and a dream, and the bet with her father that she would not run out of money and go back to Italy. Using the skills she had learned through the Genius course, she found two jobs, quickly reached fluency in English and kept developing until she became a Mentor first and a Senior Mentor then. (It’s been 6 years now, and she still hasn’t gone back to Italy except for visits, holidays and business trips.)


  • She took the Genius programme on her last semester of university, and in that final semester only she managed to take her GPA from 3.3 to 3.8, win a speech competition, receive 9 different internship offers and most of all overcome the belief that she was slower than others, which had been ingrained in her since childhood. With her incredible insight and depth, she will help you reach all the goals you have set for yourself.


    • He took his Genius programme during his first year of university, and applied the techniques to achieve a GPA of 4.0 for a semester and 3.8 overall in one of the most demanding universities in Ghana, become president of the student council in such university, and hold a TEDx talk; all this while working and pursuing his many passions. Intelligence and enthusiasm are the first characteristics that stand out in Toby, and he will use them to guide you during your journey.


Everyone learns in a unique way. To reach mastery in any skill we need a mentor who will understand what makes us unique, guide us, and give us feedback along the way to correct those mistakes that we are not yet able to recognise, thus helping us to improve.

At inGeniusly, at the beginning of the journey, every student takes an in-depth assessment that helps us to define their unique Cognitive Profile. Every student is assigned a Mentor who has qualified as such after at least 6 months of intense training and 8 exams. Each Mentor is trained to tailor the techniques and exercises to the specific profile of the student, in order to help them to create their own personalised learning method. The final goal is to make sure that the student masters the art of learning and is independent in applying the techniques to their own goals.


This element is extremely important and often misinterpreted. In order to become an expert, applying the latest theory is not enough: we need to do it based on the principles of deliberate practice. We need to know what all the building blocks of that skill are and practise in a very specific way until we are able to master all of them. This will help us to build our own, sophisticated mental representations, which will lead up to mastery.

At inGeniusly, we have created a whole set of foundational exercises for each step of the Genius PRIME Method. To increase their effectiveness, they are taught in a fun way which enhances implicit learning and leads our students to the level of unconscious competence that is required to master learning.


This element includes all the valuable knowledge and techniques in the field you have chosen. These will probably evolve and be refined over time, so it is important to keep up to date with the latest research in that area.

At inGeniusly, our framework is called the Genius PRIME Method. This includes the latest techniques and knowledge you need in order to master each of the five steps of the learning process, so that learning can become as effective as our brain is wired to find it.
