Tykela W. was really struggling in school prior to coming to My Virtual Academy. After leaving a traditional school, she enrolled with a virtual school. Tykela said, “I got too many assignments at once and there was no help if I didn’t understand something.” As you can imagine, that’s no recipe for success. In fact, it was a sure fire way of setting her up for failure.
When Tykela decided it was time to try another virtual school, she decided on My Virtual Academy. She said, “Before I came to MVA, I was missing 14 credits. I knew if I wanted to graduate on time, then I had to make something work. MVA helped a lot. You don’t have to rush to complete your classes. I can pace myself and if I can’t understand something, I actually have someone to help me. If my teacher can’t help me, then he gets me a tutor.”
At My Virtual Academy, we pride ourselves on working with each student to ensure their success. Like Tykela kindly mentioned, if a student is struggling to understand the material, there are resources at their disposal. Teachers are always available as are tutors and mentors.
Tykela had a goal of finishing her high school classes on time, but she actually went above and beyond her goal. She went on to say, “I have finished all of my classes early. I took 3 classes and if I would finish them early, I would get a class added. I had an awesome teacher by my side 24/7 and life coach. It’s awesome. I really want to thank MVA for helping me graduate early.”
When we spoke with Tykela, she was asked what she liked most about being a student at MVA and she reiterated her love for having someone available that could walk her through areas she was struggling in. She said, “My favorite thing about My Virtual Academy is that I don’t have to rush to complete my classes and if I need help, my teacher is always one phone call away to help me.”
Tykela said that if she were to talk to a student who was struggling like she was prior to MVA, she would say, “It’s a good thing (making the switch to virtual school). If you need time, they give you time. It really helps you a lot.”
As for life after graduation, Tykela has her sights set on attending a community college to further her education.
