The transition of Quad Cities students from high school to post-secondary education can feel like a giant leap. Academics get harder, learning content needs to be processed faster and more efficiently. There are new expectations for better quality assignments and papers and increased demands to be independent, responsible and self-motivated.
This is usually the point on the educational journey that separates those students with effective study habits, self-management skills, and learning tools from those without.

HOW IT WORKS
THE GAME PLAN
Students are interviewed and take a few basic diagnostic tests. A game plan for the student is developed and monitored by the instructor, both in person and online.
GUIDANCE & COACHING
An ongoing online dialogue between the student and instructor about how to apply the game plan and strategies in the classroom.
READY TO GO
The student and instructor determine if the newly acquired skill set is working. If more guidance is needed, we set up periodic refreshers to ensure success!
In the future, Performance Learning plans to also offer the WorkKeys assessment from ACT for high school and college students across the Quad Cities and surrounding areas. This assessment identifies strengths and weaknesses in workplace skill areas such as reading for information and applied math, and can be used to compare your student profile with hundreds of profiled jobs in business, industry and healthcare.
Finding the right school or college is one of the most important decisions your family will make with your child. Rather than focusing on just the content, Performance Learning’s Educational Coaches support students in becoming lifelong learners. This gives the student tools and strategies to use throughout their academic career and beyond.
