Description

The video series were designed to mimic the interactive dynamic of an actual tutoring session. As a result, the lessons never "lecture" or teach "at" the student, but rather, keep him or her constantly engaged and energized.

The programs are intended is to adapt to the ability level of each student, and address that specific weakness. Utilizing the pause feature and prompted independent work, each method guides the student through three steps: pure content, application and recognition.

This enables the lesson to engage students of all ability levels, and customize to fit their needs accordingly. Plus, this is all available for a fraction of the cost of a typical tutoring session.
