SACRAMENTO, Calif. - March 9, 2023 - PRLog -- Entrepreneur Manny Wolfe recently unveiled a brand new tutoring service that is designed to help students thrive academically, while simultaneously developing soft skills, with an emphasis on developing critical thought.
Tutors are trained in a process that is a synthesis of several proven philosophies such as critical thinking, Socratic reasoning, and the "student as teacher" model.
Advantage Education Academy focuses on tutoring students from a critical thinking based approach that combines fact gathering, research, data interpretation, and finally, verifying any conclusions using logic and factual supportive evidence. Students also learn highly valuable team building skills like leadership, communication, and delegation.
Manny Wolfe, a best selling author created Advantage Educational Academy with a desire to help students navigate a challenging workplace market that is failing employers. Numerous corporate surveys denote that the number one skill that current applicants lack is critical thinking.
Advantage Educational Academy utilizes a unique teaching methodology called the SPARK method (Sprint, Present, Ask, Reflect, Know). It involves a synthesis of the most proven philosophies for developing well rounded members of society. The SPARK method is a proprietary teaching style that synthesizes several historically proven modalities to strengthen learning.
-A study conducted by the National Assessment of Educational Progress found that only about one-quarter of high school seniors demonstrated proficient critical thinking skills (National Assessment of Educational Progress, 2011).
-A survey conducted by the National Foundation for Critical Thinking found that only about one in five adults demonstrated the ability to think critically about complex issues (Facione, 2015).
-Another study found that only about half of college graduates demonstrated proficient critical thinking skills, and less than one in 10 demonstrated high levels of critical thinking skills (AACU, 2011).
-A report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) found that critical thinking skills have become increasingly important in the modern workforce, with critical thinking skills ranking among the top skills employers are looking for in new hires (OECD, 2015).
"Advantage Educational Academy is an exciting program for students and parents alike, designed to teach the skills that are most sought after by employers." - Manny Wolfe, CEO
