Passport Learning®'s Math and Reading Academy Programs
Improve Student Proficiency up to 2.4 Grade Levels on Average
Greenville, South Carolina - Passport Learning®'s Academy of Reading® and Academy of Math® programs consistently improve student proficiencies at all skill levels an average of 1.1 to 2.4 grade levels. These results are in stark contrast to the most recent (2005) statistics from National Assessment of Educational Progress that shows very little improvement in reading and math scores among fourth- and eighth-grade students using current public school methods, despite increased public funding.
Passport's programs provide detailed assessment, accurate placement, individualized instruction, accelerated skill progression, and constant motivation with immediate results in a comprehensive, research-based program.
According to Rich Kohler, program director, "Passport Learning's individualized approach to math and reading will benefit all students - it will catch up remedial students, help the average student to excel, and allow gifted students to leap beyond previous performance." Passport Learning's unique methods are based on more than fifteen years of testing and research.
The mother of an eighth-grade girl said, "We spent over $12,000 and were told that she still needs more instruction. But since Meagan began Passport Learning one month ago, we have seen a major difference. She received a 98% on her last English test and has improved her math scores an average of fifteen percentage points. She just loves Passport Learning!" [permission to use names is on file]
The Academy of Reading program placed first in a recent independent study of eSchool News readers. Passport Learning's Academy of Reading program surpassed every other reading intervention program in phonics and phonemic awareness, vocabulary, reading comprehension, fluency, and English as a Second Language (ESL).
The company's programs can help learners at all skill levels from elementary school through the doctoral level. Specific training modules for each student target and respond to specific problem areas. Motivational components result in noticeable improvements that greatly encourage students who have had a history of struggling in school.
The Academy of Math program builds student skills from the simple to the complex; and schools using the program see students gain an average of more than two grade levels in their math skills with only ten hours of direct training. Students progress through a series of questions, applying their knowledge of terms and concepts. Students with math delay, those wanting reinforcement of math instructions, and those wanting enrichment for advanced instruction will benefit from this program.
Passport Learning's Academy of Reading and Academy of Math programs are available at Passport Learning Centers around the United States, via the Internet, and as home version software for computers running Windows XP or Windows 98 (SE).
