Online Distance Learning is Daunting. Here’s How We Can Help.
Call (860) 510-0410
Distance “learning” works for a small slice of highly motivated, self-disciplined, organized, students who are eager to learn. That is very small slice. Most every other student is engaged in “check the box” education. They are getting through busy work – checking the box – and then immersed in video games, SnapChat, Netflix and every other online diversion. Your children deserve better.
The Learning Consultants currently retains over 50 top teachers on staff. Our full team includes not only top-notch teachers but also lawyers, doctors, college professors, social workers, and engineers who have a passion for teaching.
Our teaching team includes those with expertise in SAT/ACT test prep, as well as test prep in all exams, math (all areas), English (including writing skill development), science (all areas), and language (Spanish and French).
We are working with our clients virtually during the lockdown. Our clients have reported delight for many reasons:
- They know that their children are getting a real education when they are meeting with a tutor
- Their children feel more connected to school when interacting with a tutor
- They are building skills for test prep and/or getting guidance for college during a time when they are not too busy
- The parents feel that at least one outside educator is involved in their attempts at homeschooling.
- The parents are getting a break from having to organize, teach, and ensure work completion of their children.
We highlight some of our areas of expertise below:
SAT/ACT prep and college counseling: Nationally known education expert Daryl Capuano and company founder leads our test prep and college counseling efforts. This is an opportune time to prepare for the tests and plan for college.
Math (all areas): Jesse Brockwell, known as the best math tutor in his region, has a cult-like following among his math students. During the lockdown, students are discovering that they cannot self-teach math and parents are reminded how much they dislike math! Most math teachers like math but do not like teaching. Jesse is a teaching prodigy and our clients battle to ensure a spot on his calendar.
English (writing): Dr. Kristina Knoblelsdorff, former college writing professor, experienced trainer of English teachers, and long-time head of writing for The Learning Consultants will help students with all their writing assignments. Given the lockdown, writing assignments will be the dominant way students are evaluated.
Student Mastery: Jean Card, Director of Student Mastery, organizes, plans and ensures accountability for our students. This service has become particularly valuable during the lockdown.
