Teacher Support

Online learning is most effective when delivered by teachers experienced in their subject matter.  At IVLA our teachers are certified in the subject or grade levels they teach and are dedicated to your student’s success.

Given the current complexity and sophistication of online learning systems, receiving input from an experienced and well-trained “human” teacher is invaluable. At IVLA, our students submit their completed coursework to trained and certified educators for grading, which is a tremendous benefit to our students. Our Teachers are trained to identify areas where our students need help, and having identified these areas of concern, our Teachers then work with the student to achieve success in these areas. IVLA Teachers are well-trained in our various curriculums and courseware, which allows them to work with our families and students to identify the best lessons, activities, and/or videos to create the ideal educational experience. By requiring teacher-graded coursework, IVLA ensures that the learning experience will be authentic while also providing an extra layer of accountability and educational expertise.

While IVLA students have the freedom to learn virtually from any location, it’s reassuring to know that IVLA’s certified Teachers are passionate about providing students with constructive feedback, individualized learning, and additional online support and tools. IVLA families and students can access their gradebook anytime online, and our Teachers provide a grade report at the end of each class.

IVLA Teachers pride themselves on getting to know their students and families so they can provide the best possible customized and flexible educational experience.
