They select the subject and their grade level then they are instantly connected with a subject expert where they speak to live tutors over a mike or via "chat" by keyboard. The tutor and student share a screen, which allows the tutor to see what a student writes and vice versa in an easy-to-use tutorial session using a white board format. All help is provided in real-time, one-to-one, and with real tutors.
27 FOREIGN LANGUAGES OFFERED THROUGH ROSETTA STONE
Ablaze Academy uses the Rosetta Stone program which is designed to teach students a new language the way you learned your first language: by directly associating words – written and spoken – with objects, actions and ideas that convey meaning. Pictures are used to establish the meaning of words and phrases so that there is no translation. Grammar, syntax, and vocabulary are taught through real-life examples.
COLLEGE READINESS/GED PREP
Many students initiate their postsecondary education only to find they are under prepared to being college-level coursework. Whether used in preparation for college-level placement tests, or as an intervention for skill level development, Ablaze Academy has classes that will help prepare your student to being their postsecondary learning experience. For anyone that college may not be an option the Academy's GED Prep Course is a series of comprehensive assessments that test in the five GED subject areas – Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, Literature and the Arts, and Writing. The pretests for GED competency pinpoint individual student skill deficiencies and automatically assign lessons that teach those skills. After students progress through the lesson material in a self-paced environment, the post-tests measure and record academic gains, indicating whether students are prepared to take the GED exam. All questions on the tests are aligned to the GED test objectives.
