Welcome to ASAA. My name is Jim, the Academic Dean of ASAA, a truly 21st. Century school. ASAA utilizes the skills and experience of American highly qualified teachers in providing state of the art tutoring and instruction to students. Students can study courses that are all approved and used in the 50 States in the U.S. and are recognized by the University of California and all other Universities nationwide. This instruction is delivered by American teachers in a setting that ranges from individual one-on-one interaction to small group participation. This approach can be changed as needed to cater to a student whose English skills may need individual assistance and then when ready to transition to a small group setting where a student experiences the true American style class with interaction between students and teacher and among themselves. In this way, ASAA is preparing our student for the real world experience that awalts them if they choose to continue education in an American College.
I have been in education all my life. From graduating from University College Dublin, lreland with my Degree and a Higher Diploma in Education, Honors. I have been a fervent advocate of excellence in schools. I have extensive experience both in Elementary and High School teaching subjects such as Biology, Science, English, Mathematics and Latin, I was the coordinator for the Gifted and Talented Education program in my school District in Southern Califomia and also Advanced Placement Coordinator for some 20 years. In the early 1990's I became involved with online learning and immediately saw the benefits of being able to provide individualized leaming opportunities as well as the ablity to give students a way to remediate their grades or move ahead without being slowed by waiting on other students.
ASAA provides opportunities to all students to take advantage of its state of the art online curriculum to remediate grades, to eam credit recovery, to take advanced classes individually or even to eam a fully accredited High School Diploma.
We look forward to assisting your students in accessing American education in a very welcoming and supportive environment.
