Jenifer Lalman - 9th grader at Schenectady High School
I started using Winward Academy towards the end of October 2021, and have been using it ever since. During those 4 months I’ve done a variety of different lessons in English and Math. Sometimes doing lessons once or twice a week can seem tedious, but it pays off. I definitely see a difference in my work. My grammar and punctuation has improved in essays or basic writing. As well as remembering how to do past algebraic equations that I learned in online last school year. I didn’t really understand it then, but now, I do.
I’m currently in the algebra fundamentals section of the math lessons, which is probably my favorite because it’s easy to understand and helps with what I’m currently learning in school.
I try to do about two lessons a week to get a good hour or two on the website. With putting in all this time, I’m expecting to learn new things, while revising what I’ve learned in the past. I don’t want to just do a lesson and get it over with, I want to actually understand and retain what I’m learning.
My parents think it’s great because it’s helping me advance in my own schoolwork, as well as getting ready for big exams like the SAT and ACT.
Winward Academy has helped me have more clarity and confidence in my personal schoolwork, and feel at an advantage.
