Teaching Over the Internet: It Can Be Done!

There are so many ways of homeschooling our children! Some parents and children love working closely with each other while using hands-on activities, textbooks, printables, or living books. These parents may be able to spend the majority of their children’s school hours supervising or even directly working with their children. Other students enjoy being more independent and more responsible for their own school work. Or maybe both parents work and it’s necessary for the children to have input and guidance from someone other than Mom or Dad. Which way of homeschooling is better? It depends on your family! 

Right now, there are many children who are doing public-school-at-home because their schools aren’t open for in-person learning. There are other children who are doing homeschool programs because public-school-at-home (or even in-person learning at school) wasn’t working well.

Or maybe your children tried online learning through a public school and found that they didn’t get the time and attention they needed from the teacher. (We get it! It’s hard for a teacher to educate a room full of students, and it’s even harder if she’s trying to do it remotely!) So what can you do if you’re a parent who wants or needs an online homeschool program for your children? Or if your children prefer to do online classes?

First, you should know that online learning can be done successfully! The folks at Adirondack Learning Academy are committed to not only helping students feel successful and confident when it comes to their academic studies but also to providing quality curriculum with customized instruction for students in grades K-12.

The Adirondack Learning Academy coaches work to quickly develop a rapport with each student and to identify those students who need extra academic support. They use state-of-the-art curriculum to forge a bond between the student and the learning coach. This provides each student with a supportive learning environment and allows each student to experience success.
