If the teacher say that my child is not for the course, yet term start, they not refunding the money, what can we do? Just lost the money? I cant be in a school that dont believe in my child.

I am been in chishida for 4 years for my child, than the teacher there say its not for everyone. After 4years feel so cheated. Than I found this old tread from here .

http://www.kiasuparents.com/kiasu/conte ... omment-368

Saying that:

When we finally took him out, I did some online searching to try to find out about 'Prof Shichida' - where he got his degree (which isn't in neuroscience, even though he claims to have made his breakthroughs in this area)which uni he is a 'professor'at, and espec. if there is anything on his 'research' that I can read. Nothing.

Apart from on his own sites - and a few new age mag sites, who quote his sites, he isn't mentioned. Certainly not in any solid scientific reference.

I did eventually find a ref. to his 'university' (on a game site which was reviewing a game that used his name). According to Nintendo, he is ‘Professor of Education’ at 'Newport University, Japan', but when I did a search on it, I found it is (or rather, was, they took the single-page website down soon afterwards) a university without a campus, which specialises in correspondence degrees in only five subjects to people who can’t get accepted anywhere else!

In the academic world, these kinds of institutions are known as ‘degree factories’ – which may explain why the parent institution, Newport University in California is on the warning list of Colleges and Universities NOT Accredited by CHEA – the US Council on Higher Education Accreditation (www.chea.org). As the CHEA website states: ‘Degrees from these institutions will not be accepted by the Civil Service Commission as satisfying any educational requirements indicated on job specifications.’

Any comment? Is it ture?

If the teacher say that my child is not for the course, yet term start, they not refunding the money, what can we do?

@ Sadndisappointed.

Well done, you actually done some research.

Confront that particular Shichida teacher or management to address your issue directly.

Or file law suit against Schichida Singapore and maybe Japan if you think there is misinterpretation of facts, or Shichida took your money but didn't make your kid into a genius. Good luck.

Your posts above is killing new incoming constructive discussion in this thread.

Peace.

Is changing teacher for every term is a practice for every center? I felt that is a bit disruptive for the kids.

I don't think this should be the case unless you change to a different class.

Based on my own experiences...
I have been with Heguru, the Waterway Point outlet, since day 1 and the same teacher has followed through term after term.
I have also been with British Council, the Tampines outlet, and the same teacher followed through the whole year.
Same goes for Berries.
