What Is Accelerated Learning?

What is Accelerated Learning? Accelerated Learning is an educational philosophy that we’ve developed and are now implementing companywide at Leading Edge Learning Center. 

 

Tutoring can sometimes carry a negative connotation, and is often associated with a deficit model with the student needing to recover lost ground. LELC has always advocated for advancing all levels of students, with the belief that all learners can benefit from progressing their strengths and weaknesses.    

 

The Accelerated Learning Model is centered around the student as an individual with specific abilities, strengths, weaknesses, and needs. The student is assessed across foundational skills, standardized achievement, domain patterns, and learning style.  The results are the starting point; their learning is literally “accelerated” from that point. Our model is success oriented and is effective for all ages and levels!
