PRLog - Jul. 28, 2012 - BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Small classrooms and individual attention motivates students to succeed at Academic Concepts Tutoring on Glades Road and 13th Street in Boca Raton. The results are impressive. One student scored a perfect writing score, the highest in his middle school, other students scored top scores in reading comprehension, the FCAT, math, writing, and in science.
   “Parents can relax knowing their children are getting a good foundation. We give students the ability to learn and to do their own homework at home, but they can do their homework here, too,” says Carrisa Penn, Academic Director.
   The students, from pre-K (age 4) to university students, benefit from small class sizes and individual attention, usually one or two students per class. Three classrooms accommodate four students and once classroom accommodates six. A conference room is used for testing.
   Academic Concepts Tutoring teaches all subjects: reading, writing, math, and tutoring in testing: SAT, FCAT, PSAT, ACT, SCAT. Students are tutored in AP courses in most subjects that teach toward AP exams. There are ten classes in the writing program.
   Studies have proven that children benefit from tutoring during the summer and do better in school than students who do not have education throughout the year.
   The main classroom has Smart Board technology that creates an active, interactive, visual learning environment that compels students to get involved in reading, writing, and math. “Students get excited about using the Smart Board, they look forward to it, and they don’t want to leave.”
iClicker technology is used with the Smart Board that allows kids to work as a team, driven by competition, or to work individually. “It keeps kids motivated and excited and it’s fun to see the kids learn. This is a game concept that is involving and facilitates learning,” says Penn, “and this is serious learning that builds self-esteem.”
   While students answer questions, the teacher can see how the child is learning, how long it takes the child to answer, and if the answers are correct. Penn and her team of twelve tutors are able to know which areas have been mastered and which areas still need work. “The teacher is able to see which students need help without alerting other students, so it’s private.”
   Penn says, “We do more than just tutor. We build self-confidence.” Please call 561-361-7556 for more information.
