Robert M. Beren Academy
Robert M. Beren Academy (RMBA) is an Orthodox Jewish school located just outside of Houston’s 610 Loop on the southwest side.
After one of RMBA’s math teachers fell unexpectedly ill in the spring of 2014, General Academic worked with RMBA to provide a substitute Advanced Algebra II and Pre-Calculus instructor.
General Academic tapped Jared Wissel, a 2011 Texas A&M graduate with a BS in Aerospace Engineering to lead the two classes over the ensuing six weeks. Stephen Hayes, General Academic’s Vice President, led the curriculum adaptation, and Course Manager James Mazzo helped refine tests and quizzes.
PSAT Prep Course
Post Oak High School
Post Oak High School (POHS) is a Montessori school located in Houston’s Museum District.
General Academic worked with POHS in the fall of 2013 to adapt its Accelerated SAT test prep curriculum specifically to the needs of POHS’s 9th and 10th graders in preparation for that year’s PSAT.
Over the course of five weeks and 15 hours, General Academic’s Manager for Course Offerings, James Mazzo, led the students in a fast-paced, comprehensive prep for the PSAT. General Academic also provided mock practice exams every weekend at its office for the duration of the course.
SAT Prep Course
Bob Hope School
The Bob Hope School (BHS) is a highly effective charter school in Port Arthur, Texas.
General Academic worked with BHS in Summer of 2013 to custom develop and teach an SAT preparation course to high school students.
Over the course of two weeks and 70 hours, two General Academic instructors paired with two BHS teachers to teach a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum. General Academic also provided a one-day “refresher” the weekend before the students took the SAT in October. Stephen Hayes, General Academic’s Vice President, led the curriculum adaptation.
