Tennessee Connections Academy is a structured but flexible system. There are multiple opportunities to achieve success, and the time spent learning with Tennessee Connections Academy is considerably greater than the time that was allotted in their traditional brick-and-mortar school.
The teachers are an important factor, especially for my high schooler. She is a very studious and diligent student. Before we joined Connections Academy, we didn’t have the benefit of teachers, as I was the only instructor. I would grade her assignments, as well as provide feedback. My daughter was often left wondering if my feedback was enough. She absolutely needs the teacher feedback to feel her work is sufficient.
Tennessee Connections Academy has provided her with confidence in a meaningful, at-home educational experience. For this, I am grateful. I love that the teachers are fully invested in each student’s subject mastery. I am in constant contact with my children’s teachers both through WebMail and LiveLesson® sessions. There are a few teachers who have also given me their phone numbers to stay in touch.
I love the ability to see at any moment how my students are performing and what they may need help with. Not only am I able to visually see the grades for my children, but I’m also able to hear them talk about what they’re learning. The positive feedback from their teachers shows my children are mastering their work.
Tennessee Connections Academy is preparing my children to be successful in all areas in relation to a career. They will leave school as better readers, notetakers, test-takers, summarizers, investigators, scientists, mathematicians, problem solvers, communicators, and so on. I am pleased with the computer skills, knowledge, and information my children have already learned. My children will be more well-rounded with the information that has been provided to them at Tennessee Connections Academy.
