Our time-tested methodology and individualized programs build confidence and improve academic performance. We will help your student to maximize study and academic skills, develop strong study habits, and ultimately prepare them for a rewarding academic career in the world of work in the 21st century. In addition, our programs in reading, mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, humanities, and foreign languages are well known in public and private academic institutions, where we are fortunate to receive numerous referrals. Our educators are not just “study buddies” who observe or help supervise homework tasks. Rather, it is required that our educators teach the material necessary to have your student be successful in the classroom and beyond. Achievement Associates educators are supervised accordingly to ensure Achievement Associates high standards are met.
It is our experience that many of our students become Life-Long Learners and develop fine critical thinking skills, we are proud of this fact. Many of our students stop in to visit us over the years and send us updates regarding their academic and professional development. Some seek further consultation regarding career and vocational concerns. This, of course, delights us and we are always available to help and provide information.
A number of our students are Learners at the AP level and take advantage of our popular “Science & Math R US” Programs. Here, any Achievement Associates student can meet with one of our MDs, Ph.D.s, or other related professionals, all with degrees within our organization. Of course, this service is free of charge for our clientele as students are encouraged to discuss openly career issues and information in medicine, law, behavioral health, nursing, speech pathology, nutrition, engineering, and education, just to name a few. We have a special program for girls who are at risk of “slipping through the cracks” and decide not to consider careers in science and/or mathematics because they are afraid they might not fit in. Please contact Dr. Neena Florsheim, Director, to arrange for your student to meet with a “Science & Math R US professional” at your convenience or to discuss possible assessment. We have found these programs to be very informative and quite motivating for many of our students, not just our gifted learners. Some students are “slow starters” which is quite normal in human development terms. These students are also given special attention, and feel really great about their uniqueness and accomplishments, we see to that! Many of these students do very well in college and develop wonderful fulfilling careers.
Our “Portfolio Program” begins in the 8th grade and continues through high school graduation. This special 5-year program helps to maximize a student’s personal and academic potential while finding the right college fit – all for one affordable fee. Students can enter this program at any time. However, those students who start the program early benefit the most. Dr. Bernard O’Connell “Bernie” is known far and wide for his impressive professional acumen and special rapport with students and their families. Simply put, students adore “Bernie” and respect his dedication to student achievement! In addition, Dr. O’Connell, along with several of our other fine educators, is available for ACT/SAT and other standardized test preparation.
We are proud to say that many of our clients come from Wisconsin and Chicagoland. Special hours are dedicated to clients who travel long distances from Chicago, Madison, and other distant locations. Telephone consultation is also available. In addition, our intake staff can help make special arrangements for lodging and other special requirements and considerations.
