Leading the virtual classroom with customized learning, our teachers help students around the world and across all grade levels achieve their potential.
Pearson Online Academy online teachers can create the lively personal interactions of a traditional classroom in an online setting. In a virtual lesson session, online private school teachers explain or demonstrate new concepts, lead discussions, write on a whiteboard, and show videos or other visuals. They can also create virtual “breakout” rooms where classmates can meet to collaborate on group projects.

Individualized Instruction Program
Students learn best when lessons match their interests and abilities. The mission of Pearson Online Academy is to help each student maximize his or her potential and meet the highest performance standards through a uniquely customized learning program.
Each full-time student receives individualized instruction, including lessons tailored to that student’s academic strengths and weaknesses. This is the Personalized Performance Learning® (PPL) approach—a dynamic process that begins by evaluating each student’s strengths and needs. Teachers and counselors are then able to develop focused, customized approaches that work for the student along with the curriculum—all year long.
When help is needed, a private school teacher may modify instruction or lessons, provide meaningful ways to practice skills, and offer helpful resources. They may arrange to work with a student in a small group or even one-on-one. This personal attention empowers students to do their best and to achieve their goals.
Collaborating to Provide Even Greater Support
Pearson Online Academy teachers work together closely and talk regularly. They share best practices, subject matter tips, teaching methods, and more. For families working with multiple teachers, these teachers can coordinate efforts to meet the student’s needs.
Connected to Students and Families
The bonds that teachers at Pearson Online Academy build with their students are deep and strong. Often, private school teachers get to know the entire family well. These relationships enable teachers to make truly meaningful, life-changing connections with their students.
