Job Description

Math & Language Arts Academic Coach for grades K-8

Excellerate Digital Advanced Learning is looking for Academic Coaches to work with students in our two Learning Studios (Wheeling and Glenview).

What is Excellerate Digital Advanced Learning (DAL)?
DAL is an innovative after-school program for K-8 students. We combine our individualized, holistic academic coaching with the best learning technology.

Our current tool automatically adapts to each student’s unique needs, whether to speed up or catch up. The Digital Advanced Learning method was developed at Harvard Graduate School of Education and Harvard Innovation Lab.

Blended Learning Model

More Than SAT’s Excellerate Digital Advanced Learning employs a unique learning model, based on the latest learning research. It combines the best of both worlds:

  • Technology-based learning: award-winning, engaging, and self-directed technology-based learning content in mathematics and language arts & writing. The system individually adapts to the strengths and needs of each individual student, allowing students to take charge of their own learning.

  • Live academic coaching: combined with live face-to-face coaching for support, feedback, and accountability as students build self-motivated learning skills. Our Academic Coaches are trained to support the students’ learning, engaging with them to help them make the most out of their learning time.

Who We Are

Just as our name says, More Than Scores And Tests is built on the belief in the inherent value, significance, and potential of each unique student. We offer a customized tutoring solution that focuses not only on addressing the students' learning difficulties and challenges but also on maximizing their strengths. Learning good study skills and habits is an integral part of our curriculum, so that our students can learn "how to study" not just "what to study." In addition, we have a variety of consulting programs through which we offer a holistic solution for families in their endeavor to navigate the college process. Unlike other tutoring companies, More Than S.A.T. focuses on basic study skills that can be applicable to students' high school classes, college test prep, and even college and career. We teach our students to set achievable goals and celebrate small successes throughout the process. A significant increase in their test scores is only one of these successes. Students are motivated to go beyond "just test prep" because they discover their true potential and learn how to use their strengths and leverage their weaknesses. We have seen many students change their entire outlook on academics and become confident young adults taking ownership of their lives.
