Life is 50% aptitude and 50% attitude: Let’s learn and train like champions do.

 
Viera Academy provides an interactive online-based educational software. It offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. Viera Academy also provides world level Mental Math and Memory courses, developed by Guinness World Record holders.
 
viera-autYusnier Viera, Founder of Viera Academy, he is an educator, computer scientist, and public speaker. Viera is a Cuban-American mental calculator. He is well known as “The Human Calendar” for his Guinness World Record on calendar dates. On October 31, 2005, he broke for the first time the World Record for calendar calculations. Shortly after that, he escaped from a placed where his dreams were completely frustrated.
 
Living in Miami, he started helping students on Math Tutoring, where he found his greatest passion, along with his career as a Mental Math genius. Applying his motto that says “Life is 50% aptitude and 50% attitude”, he has reached amazing results on his exercise of preparing students to face standardized Tests.
 
For about 5 years he has helped more than 1,000 students, busting their scores for more than 300 points in average. Viera understood that his face-to-face tutoring system despite its amazing results, will soon meet its limits-once he ran out of time. Then he elaborated on an idea to combine of students, parents and teachers around the world. This process gave birth to Viera Academy, a personal mission that with your help could transcend and have a global impact. He currently has three World Records for calendar calculations. Viera has appeared in prestigious TV channels like CNN, ABC, Fox, Discovery Channel, National Geographic & The Ellen Show.”
 
Viera says “Gamifying our platform is our main goal. We will make a fun and emotional game out of Standardized Tests. Creating an environment of collaboration, support and mutual help among our learners, parents and teachers is the main goal of our social component. Students will be able to have friends inside the platform, with who they will share their progress, send challenges and compete for the best rank among their circle. At the same time, teachers will connect with their students, create groups, give tests and assignments, as well as keeping close track of their progress. Parents will have an optimal perception of their children status all the time along the course.”
 
Students will have access to a comprehensive, unlimited collection of Full Tests, in all the Standardized Tests part of their suite – SAT, PSAT and ACT -. Unlike many other platforms, they have identified the necessity of students to practice as much as possible, in order to succeed in the process of facing the real test. This collection will be provided as the result of huge effort and cutting-edge software engineering. The result will be the Standardized Tests Generator.

Yusnier Viera has started a crowdfunding campaign with a goal of raising $40,000 by October 31st, so they can build the core components of the platform: Social-Educational Network, Adaptive Learning Engine and Standardized Tests Generator. They need to bring to the platform the best English Content experts out there, so they can weave that with their Math experts. Also, they will use the funds to produce the videos and all the media-related material that will be supporting the content of the courses. Their marketing target will be conducted through social media so they can reach out to more schools and teachers.
