In comparison with Learning Center programs of Kumon, JEI, Eye-Level, MPM or Mathnasium, Afficient programs, leveraged with modern technologies, enable students to learn much more efficiently. Afficient programs provide instant feedback to student’s work, no need to wait for worksheet or workbooks being graded manually. Students learn from their mistakes and figure out correct solutions right after such mistakes are made. Afficient programs help students to build strong foundations by systematically identifying weak areas in the lower grades and lead students to fill lower grade gaps efficiently; which is impossible to be done efficiently by manually tracking all the student’s work. Afficient programs constantly analyze the data of student work and optimize the problem selection to maximize the gain of the student at the corresponding stage. A student passes a grade level when his/her academic performance reaches his/her goal (typically A+) which is constantly and rigorously assessed by Afficient program. The contents of Afficient Math and Afficient English align with US Common Core standards, so it directly helps students to improve their performance in school.
In comparison with online programs of Khan Academy or IXL, Afficient Academy’s program combines the advantages of modern web-based software technologies with physical or virtual learning centers where students receive individual supervision and advice. With Afficient programs, students learn online at home as well as at the physical or virtual learning centers. At the Learning Centers, the student’s work is monitored by the instructor, individual feedback is provided and the instructor works with each student to develop his/her skills, explain the difficult concepts and assist the student to achieve his/her goal in learning. Through a Diagnostic Test, a student can be placed at a proper grade with a proper proficiency level to review lower grade materials efficiently. Afficient programs has a unique patented flow to ensure students achieve excellent outcome (A/A+). With this flow, student’s work is fully analyzed, weak areas are automatically identified, the proficiency level of the student is continuously improved towards the pre-set goal, problems for student to practice are selected intelligently to maximize the efficiency of achieving excellent outcome.
In comparison with Learning Center programs of Russian School of Math, Afficient Math is a personalized, self-paced program to fit each individual’s situation. A student can be placed at a proper starting point to review lower grade materials efficiently, and advances to higher grade levels at student’s own pace. Leveraged with modern technologies, Afficient Math makes the learning highly efficient. Afficient Math analyzes student’s work and optimizes the problem selection to ensure excellent outcome in each grade level for each individual student.
In comparison with online programs of John Hopkins’ CTY, Afficient Academy’s program combines the advantages of modern web-based software technologies with physical or virtual learning centers where students receive individual supervision and advising. A student can be placed at a proper starting point to review materials of a number of lower grades efficiently and cost-effectively. In doing Afficient program, a student constantly knows his/her grade level score. Rather than assigning students a grade (A, B, or C) at the end of a course, Afficient Math works with students continuously and intelligently to achieve excellent outcome (A+) in completing the course. With Afficient Academy’s unique patented flow, student’s work is fully analyzed, weak areas are automatically identified, the proficiency level of the student is continuously improved towards the pre-set goal, problems for the student to practice are selected intelligently to maximize the efficiency of achieving excellent outcome.
