Our philosophy is to consider ourselves to be in-training at all times.
TRAINING THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
INSTEAD Academy believes in training that makes a difference. We are continually innovating to deliver a more efficient and useful training experience. Nowadays we mix drills, lectures, and discussions - in response to the student and subject at hand. We do not believe in rote memorisation, but teach our students to reason about the rules. We engage in guided (focused) re-creation of materials, so that students can feel the challenge of original research, and observe how these challenges have been met by the masters. We have seen our students develop not only competency, but also a feeling of authorship. The feedback we are aiming for is WOW!
We take these steps to ensure a high-quality training experience:
- Our teachers are experts in the test or subject they teach, with official SAT, ACT, or TOEFL scores in the top 1 percentile.
- We encourage discussions and instant innovation, so that our classes are, in a sense, tailored to you.
- We are openly reviewed on Google Maps, and work to earn your recommendations.
- We work in a quiet, professional space, with 24-hour security and modern furnishing.
