Beyond The Classroom
The CGA Da Vinci Programme offers students aged 8 - 18 years the opportunity to study one-on-one with one of our experienced instructors. Students cover the full curriculum of subjects of their choice, at a pace that suits their needs.
Research suggests that intensive, individualised tutoring contributes to statistically significant gains in student assessment scores (the average tutored student outperforms 98% of non-tutored students).
Da Vinci is the true option for students that are serious about their grades, and choose to succeed at the highest level they are capable of, with no distractions and within the most efficient amount of time. It offers a better fit for students who have busier schedules and/or prioritise flexibility. It is also a suitable option for students who have specific learning needs with unique knowledge gaps and require a special timeline or learning pace.
CGA Da Vinci meets these needs by bringing the experienced instructors and curriculum quality our families expect from CGA, while allowing them to customise their schedule to their other commitments.
Our comprehensive year-long syllabus is taught through 1-on-1 live teaching, typically spanning an average of 50-60 hours of live instruction. In addition, students can expect to spend an average of 2-5 hours per week on homework assignments to reinforce the concepts covered in class.
Our Da Vinci program is taught by a team of highly qualified teachers who are specialists in their respective fields.
The programme is available across all our curriculum offerings - iPrimary, Pre-IGCSE, IGCSE, A Levels and AP courses.

"I loved the 1-1 classes since I’m very introverted at first and even though the normal classes weren’t full I was always worried and felt like I’m in a competition. With the Da Vinci programme, I had the flexibility of times and dates of the classes; this let me spend less time on things that I understood right away and more time on my weaknesses. Overall, I enjoyed being less stressed in my 1-1 classes."
CGA’s ESOL classes are a customised pathway for ambitious students to accelerate academic English ability more quickly than traditional ESOL classes. Students meet for three hours per week with the teacher in a live classroom setting. The course content has been structured to combine practical every-day English with Academic English that will improve students’ performance in an English speaking classroom.
We can offer any subjects under the CIE/Pearson Edexcel/AP curriculum as long as they don't have a practical component.
