New Lexington Tutoring Academy incorporating physical activity into teaching methods
A new business has opened in Lexington that offers a wide variety of tutoring options to aid students in the learning process. Lexington Tutoring Academy is locally owned and operated by three current certified public school teachers in the town: Dr. Phillip Thomas, Ryan Panter, and Cliff Roberts.
According to the academy’s website, the facility offers a new way of teaching:
“Our unique style of instruction is not your typical ‘tutoring.’ It uses research-based methods that give students the option to incorporate light physical activity, such as pedal desks and balance boards, into their instructional session,” the website explains.
Lexington Academy instructors focus on the connection between the brain and the body, and use multiple strategies to help students succeed.
In addition to one-on-one tutoring in math, reading, science, and SAT/ACT prep, the facility offers archery classes.
Community classes in CPR, STEM, photography, and boater education are also available.
The facility is open Mondays through Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Sundays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Interested parties may stop by four a tour, and to book a session. Additional information can be found on Lexington Tutoring Academy’s website.
