The Lernsys System
Lernsys is a leading provider of premium academic content, engaging video courses and customized academic materials for public, private and homeschooled students in both North America and around the world. Lernsys, a semi non-profit organization, is built around one prevailing mantra - Education, your way. Choice, input and feedback have been needlessly eliminated from traditional school settings. Homeschooling parents already recognize this and Lernsys aims to provide families with the most comprehensive selection of academic materials, a virtual one-stop-shop for all homeschooled children.
Most of our courses go above and beyond Common Core standards and facilitate the provision of curriculum and lesson information and details for full or part-time homeschooling parents who may need to provide this type of information to city or state officials. The "About the Teacher" course section, provides information on the teachers' state or federal credentials, masteries, expertise, specialties, and experience. The courses' "Curriculum" and "Description" sections, provide parents in-depth information about the lessons covered, materials provided, downloadable practice exercises included, activities, and additional resources available to parents, thus enabling parents to fully control the type of education they desire for their children.
How Is Lernsys Different?
Whether you contribute to the public school system as a tax-payer, or your child attends an expensive private school costing thousands of dollars per year, chances are you are never given the option to hand-pick each teacher your child will have during the school year. Sadly, choice is never an option given to parents who care deeply about their children's education and success. Lernsys is built around choice. In addition to an abundance of written, video and audio resources, the Lernsys System is truly distinctive in its ability to provide parents affordable access to a database of hundreds of courses and qualified teachers to choose from, each with their own unique style, experience, curriculum, and academic focus. Thanks to our participating teachers, you are able to purchase invaluable hours of professionally developed curriculum, courses, videos, lessons, and materials for less than what you would normally pay during one month of private tutoring.
Education Made Easy
Because our courses usually cover an entire year's worth of curriculum, they alleviate the pain of having to pull together different pieces of academic material from different sources which often either overlap with each other or simply do not fulfill the mandatory curriculum for an entire school year. Unlike tutoring or private classes, our lessons can be accessed at home or on the road, in the car or on the beach, from a computer or smart device, thus reducing the student's anxiety and making the learning experience much more pleasant and enjoyable. Additionally, since our video-lessons can be watched over and over again, students can easily move through lessons at their own pace, pausing, stopping and repeating as needed in order to completely master new concepts.
Our participating teachers, who often also teach at the college or university level, not only explain new material using hands-on practical experience, but also provide practice exercises, worksheets, and creative activities which students can download and complete in order to master their newly acquired skills. After completing the exercises, students can then watch the step-by-step worksheet review videos where teachers review problems one by one. This allows students not simply to check if they got an answer right or wrong, but also to understand how to arrive to the correct solution step by step. This is extremely helpful for subjects such as math, geometry, chemistry and physics, among others, or where additional insight adds tremendous value and a cookie-cutter right or wrong answer is simply not good enough.
Our courses provide parents and students unparalled academic value for as little as $3 per lesson or less. In today's highly competitive world, high quality education should be affordable, accessible and offer parents both choice and control. To succeed as a prosperous society in this challenging new world where our children are now competing for good paying jobs with people from around the world, quality education should no longer be a privilege and luxury of the few, but a right of the many. Shortly said, Lernsys is the democratization of education.
Lernsys delivers high quality education at a reasonable cost from experienced teachers including certified, state-licensed, and even teachers who hold multiple certifications, Master of Arts (M.A.), Master of Education (M.Ed. or Ed.M.; Latin Magister Educationis or Educationis Magister), and even EdD or PhD's. Most of our academic courses include:
The Lernsys Difference
Curriculum. As a parent, you are well aware of the time, effort, expense and frustration that goes into finding a professionally developed curriculum which optimizes your children´s study time, focuses on what is truly important in the 21st century, and one which is provided by experienced educators to meet or exceed state standards while cutting through the senseless and irrelevant clutter. When you purchase access to a Lernsys course, you are ensuring that each hour spent learning new concepts and information is time well spent and that each lesson is productive and helping achieve your child´s full potential.
Video-lessons. Our video-lessons are now the leading standard in the industry and developed by top educators in their respective fields of expertise. They deliver clearly defined lesson objectives, goals, and deliverables via a well-defined academic plan and structured approach. If you have tried "free" online solutions in the past, you know how frustrating and time-consuming it can be to find good quality lessons that actually follow a sequential pedagogic approach, and not simply "loose" lessons created and uploaded by pseudo-educators who often lack any real qualifications, state-issued certifications or degrees, let alone any actual classroom experience. Your time is very valuable; your children's education, priceless. Cheap and stitched together solutions found on the web can do lasting harm when important concepts are not properly learned and mastered at the right time. Having to "unlearn" concepts not properly mastered is a common complaint many students voice after having tried over-the-counter "solutions". Our lessons are developed by qualified educators with actual teaching experience, some even from Ivy League universities such as Harvard, Columbia, and Berkeley, among other world-renowned institutions, and who often hold multiple certifications and degrees such as Master of Arts (M.A.), Master of Education (M.Ed. or Ed.M.; Latin Magister Educationis or Educationis Magister), and even EdD or PhD's.
Worksheets. Each course includes worksheets, exercises and practice material to ensure that each student not only understands and fully comprehends each lesson, but is able to master it. Most parents who homeschool or spend time helping their children with school related work face a daunting challenge: Ensuring that questions, exercises and problems accurately match the new material taught. However, this is seldom the case when pulling together material from different sources. Typically, exercises and worksheets found online seldom serve as true counterparts, thus creating a serious problem for students who often become disengaged and frustrated, blaming themselves for not being able to solve problems which may not truly reflect the new material learned in the first place. When you purchase a Lernsys course, you will no longer have to worry about spending valuable time trying to piece together and accurately match lessons with exercises.
Step by Step Tutorials. Finding quality worksheets, exercises and practice material can be very useful if it helps learn and master a new concept. But what happens when the student does not arrive to the correct answer and cannot figure out where the mistake was made? Either you are burdened with the task of figuring out the error, or the student becomes frustrated and loses interest. To deal with this very real and common dilemma, nearly all of our academic K to 12 courses include step-by-step tutorials where teachers review each worksheet or exercise and review the answers step by step. This is extremely helpful for two reasons. Firstly, students get a chance to go over new concepts recently introduced and to see them apply in actual real-world scenarios. Secondly, if the student does not arrive to the proper answer or solution correctly, the teacher will explain the solution step by step, giving the student a chance to understand where the mistake was made, correct the work and make adjustments as needed.
Quizzes and Tests. Quizzes and tests not only help validate that students have not only comprehended the new material and can now master it as well, but also serve as back up evidence that the student is progressing well. Many school districts across the U.S. and Canada require parents who homeschool to provide evidence of testing being conducted as part of a well-defined homeschool program. This information must often come from a third-party or independent source. Because most of our courses contain quizzes and tests or a final exam, you are able to print out this information and provide it to city or state officials upon request.
Resources. Parents often spend considerable time looking for additional resources, thinking creatively how to extend concepts in new ways beyond the classroom. Under the course's "Resources" section, you will often find material for parents which can include tests and quizzes' answer keys, additional exercises, worksheets, and cool ideas for parents who want to share activities with their children in creative ways. The "Resources" section is password protected and only parents can access it.
