About Us

Welcome to Tomorrow’s Genius

Tomorrow’s Genius partners with schools, families and community-based organizations across the country to provide high-level, personalized live online instruction to students of all backgrounds and from all walks of life.

TG’s philosophy is that students learn best when they are challenged and given the resources they need by a teacher who takes the time to get to know them personally.

TG’s Mission

TG’s mission is to provide personalized and engaging instruction to any student, anytime, anywhere.

At Tomorrow’s Genius, we believe that all students’ educational needs can be fulfilled. Through our guiding principles of accessibility, engagement, and personalized learning, TG’s LPE™ model (Learn. Practice. Excel.) works by rewarding effort and is reinforced by learning methods designed for educational success. We approach each of our students with guided practice that reinforces fundamental concepts and associated skills through stimulating and interactive instruction. We are driven to serve our students’ individualized needs by harnessing technology and media.

Matthew Gaertner – Director of Outreach and Field Services

Matthew Gaertner

As a project manager at Tomorrow’s Genius, Matthew is deeply committed to insuring that our classrooms foster an environment that is fun, supportive, engaging, and safe for all of our students. Matthew is a graduate of Tufts University and alumni of the Rhode Island School of Design’s Digital + Media MFA program. He has worked in a number of schools in after school and in-class programs through non-profit community organizations, most recently the Church Avenue Merchant’s Block Association in Brooklyn (CAMBA). As an arts activity specialist at CAMBA Matthew worked closely with his students to build a supportive and creatively engaging environment to explore their artistic interests after school each day. His educational philosophy is one focused on care, using an asset based approach to help students use and develop their existing strengths to face challenges both in and out of the classroom. He feels that a student’s trust should be earned, and that effective educators must build meaningful relationships with their students to nourish the lines of communication necessary for effective education.
