CambriLearn: a unique education for your only child

Meet Claudia Swartzberg, Co-Founder and CEO of the online school, CambriLearn. Claudia’s school trip didn’t start off on a perfect footing. When Claudia was in kindergarten, her teachers didn’t want her to go to first grade because she couldn’t cut in a straight line. Coming from a family of rocket scientists and high academic achievers, this was difficult for her parents to process.

Despite her teachers’ advice, her parents decided to put her in first grade. She had problems in elementary school and she began to feel anxious and did not want to go to school.

Many parents have experienced difficulties in motivating their children to wake up and go to school. This dislike of children is often dismissed and parents may not consider that there might be an alternative educational solution for their children, one that takes advantage of their unique learning needs and abilities and, most importantly, motivates them to want for study.

Below Average to CEO

Claudia’s father recognized the difficulties his daughter was experiencing and began spending evenings guiding her through her course work, creating practice material in a way that was relevant to her. She understood her preferred learning style and how she best absorbed information and began to tailor her lessons to her unique learning needs.

Soon her grades began to improve and her drive and passion to achieve snowballed as she developed more confidence and purpose. Claudia ended up graduating at the top of her high school class and went on to study Actuarial Sciences, specializing in data science.

A customized learning solution

In a typical classroom setting, with a teacher to student ratio of 1:25, a teacher cannot tailor each lesson to suit each individual child. Most professors will present the course work to the average student. This approach can leave many children feeling left behind as they struggle to keep up with course work. It can also make students feel bored and uninterested, as they can quickly grasp the lesson and get frustrated by the pace.

That is why Claudia founded the CambriLearn intelligent learning system. The flexible and interactive online education platform makes it possible for a tutor or parent to teach individuals and not classes.

The benefit of choosing an online curriculum is the freedom and flexibility to study at your own pace and customize your child’s learning schedule based on their unique circumstances. Students can pace their learning, which means they can speed up or slow down based on what they can handle at the time.

CambriLearn is moving away from static, content-driven lessons towards a culture of interaction, discovery and mastery. Students tend to feel less judgment and peer pressure in a virtual classroom environment. This helps build their confidence and self-regulation, which are some of the most important skills to ensure future success.

Education prepared for the future

For centuries, a child’s intelligence has been measured by academic test scores. The higher the child’s score on the test, the more capable they are perceived to be. The problem with this approach is that it does not take into account problem-solving ability, creativity, motivation levels, perception, or social intelligence.

If a child gets good grades, it is not a guarantee that they will be successful. In his book moodsHoward Garner challenges the notion that academic intelligence is a single yardstick for measuring a person’s abilities and chances for future success.

Every child is different, with unique learning needs and personalities. To say that one type of intelligence is more important than another is like saying that it is more important to learn mathematics than languages. Although each subject is important in education, what is most important is that a child builds the educational foundations that will serve him throughout his adult life.

Studies have shown that only 25% of your success is determined by IQ, while 75% of your success is determined by your perception, optimism levels, social support, and ability to view stress as a challenge rather than of a threat.

Social interaction

The main concern of parents who want to enroll in an online school is the fear of less social interaction. There are many ways that homeschooled children can socialize. From attending community club sports like soccer or cricket to more personalized activities like homeschooling meetings and playdates.

Homeschooling families treat socialization as a priority and consciously seek out and participate in personalized activities. This approach means that children can socialize with other children of different age groups who share common interests.

optimal learning zone

On a typical school day at a traditional school, students only spend 55% of their day in actual academic lessons. The rest of their time is spent in assemblies, breaks, walking to class, and so on. CambriLearn provides more effective and efficient programming. Designed to spend less time sitting at a desk, children have more time and energy to engage in social activities in a natural and positive way.

This is why many academically gifted children, like Christopher Oosthuizen, choose online education over a traditional school setting. To compete professionally in sports or excel in academics, students need the flexibility to tailor their education to their unique schedules, circumstances, and abilities.

As the idiom says: when a flower doesn’t bloom, we don’t change the flower, we change the environment so that the flower blooms.

As someone fortunate enough to have parents who understood—and put into practice—the importance of personalized learning, Claudia Swartzberg has made her life’s work have a powerful and positive impact on today’s youth through a focused approach. proactive and personalized. to education
