Aptus Learning was born from two teachers with several years of experience teaching, coaching, and mentoring children, teens and adults. Tiziana Knox and Christopher Buffett combined their passion for, and expertise in, teaching, with on-going research to find and create ideal learning environments for students.
They discovered that when students become more aware of their preferred learning styles and intelligences, learn to set challenging academic goals, and develop and strengthen their literacy and self-regulation skills, they become much more motivated to achieve greater results in their studies. The more they practice these skills, the more ingrained they become, which means that students carry the know-how to be successful with them all the time! It isn’t something they memorize and then forget the following week. These key skills, once acquired and practiced, result in students being able to apply them effectively to a wide variety of situations, especially in different subject areas. They take ownership for their learning and become effective students who achieve much better results.
