Tenney School

High Quality Online Learning

Based on one-to-one instruction model

The Tenney School Live is a set of resources and processes used to run The Tenney School online.  It is the same high quality one-to-one based education delivered in a distance learning environment. It is the same teachers, textbooks, and curriculum as The Tenney School, delivered using Microsoft Teams and Office365.

Watch the following introductory video to see how it works.

Why Choose Tenney School Live?

The strength of Tenney School Live is the strong student-teacher connection. In our one-to-one online classes, the student and teacher will get to know each other just as well as if they were in person. Our teachers will quickly understand each student’s strengths, learning style, areas of improvement and personality. This knowledge will quickly allow our teachers to deliver a tailored classroom program especially for your student. The strong student-teacher connection of Tenney School Live overcomes some of the challenges faced in typical online learning programs: student confusion, disconnectedness, and lack of accountability.

The Power of One-to-One Online Instruction

The one-to-one instruction built into Tenney School Live really differentiates it from other online learning programs. In typical online learning programs, the student is responsible for understanding the outline and content of each course. While some students can successfully navigate this type of course, many students struggle. At Tenney School Live, teachers will guide students through courses, one-to-one, face-to-face. Through the one-to-one classes, students will not be left wondering what to do. Teachers will provide each students an overview of the course with very clear instruction, classwork, and homework.
