The Mr. Maverick Fellowship Winner of The 2014 Xpeed Fun Platform
Although Jessica Wang has just finished her 3rd grade at age 8 in a Connecticut elementary school, over the past 8 short weeks, she has achieved 7 years ahead of the U.S. public schooling agenda. Jessica stands solid on grade 10 math through the most effective Xpeed Fun One-On-One Elite-Tutoring System. Jessica has come from the rank-and-file family, but at the end of the Xpeed Fun Learning journey she has risen to the top of her class as the highest achiever in the 2014 Xpeed Fun Summer Camp.
This proves preliminary to the world that genes are not a determinant in cultivating kids' academic success. “Magic Formula in Education” has shifted to Xpeed Fun Platform + Hard work, Attention and Perseverance = Academic Success. Any “average” child from any family has an equal opportunity to become the best academic achiever in any academic area. Xpeed Fun Learning Child-Prodigy-Shaping procedures optimize each and every child’s brain capacity to achieve learning speed 50 to 100 times faster than any other programs or learning institutions in the history of the world, thereby revolutionizing and maximizing the efficiency and effectiveness of a child’s learning capacity forever for the better service to humanity.
In terms of higher order of thinking in applying the newly learned knowledge in similar or different scenarios, Jessica has finished solving more than 2000 SAT Math simulation questions with a very impressive average score of 94% or higher. Jessica’s success in this 8-week Xpeed Fun academic summer camp has shown that any kids can finish their high school learning before age 10.
Over the 8 weeks, the Xpeed Fun Methodology has helped Jessica increase her vocabulary by at least 10,000 new words in total through word build-up games or much higher level advanced reading sessions, including 100 or more college-, and/or high-school level concise version courses that have covered 7 different career specialties. These books includes 12 Math books, 30 Medical books, 14 Business books, 10 Social Science books, 6 Engineering books and 17 Science books. The Xpeed Fun academic camp has helped Jessica foster strong interests in science and engineering areas such as Medical, Chemistry and Computer Science. Jessica has read 30 college-level books about human body, physiology, psychology, surgery, dentistry, pharmacology, pathology, and several major diseases such as Cancer, Heart Attack, Asthma, Allergies, Hepatitis, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Diseases. She has also read more than 23 college-level books in science and engineering, such as Telecom, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical, Civil, and Aerospace Engineering.
Although her reading capability and vocabulary have jumped by a mile, at least three years ahead of the U.S. public schooling curriculum, she still needs to work very hard on the read-aloud frontier to build the voice database in mind for each and every new word learned. The Xpeed Fun 8-week camp has boosted up Jessica's reading speed by 3 to 5 times faster than ever before, paving a very solid Ivy League way for her to achieve a much higher academic success down the road. We hope Jessica treats this not as an ending but as a starting point in her life-long Xpeed Learning Journey. Jessica's academic achievements at 8 years old have demonstrated to the whole world that any kid can acquire 5 to 10 majors before age 20 by adopting the leading-edge Xpeed Learning Methodology invented by Mr. Maverick, which can be called "the Xpeed Learning Revolution/Storm".
Mainstream American students have decreasing interest in hard science and engineering over time due to the ever-increasing fierce competition from Asians. But the Xpeed Fun academic program may reverse this trend forever by boosting up the U.S. overall competitiveness in the global market. During the 8-week summer camp, Jessica has also finished reading 5 A.P. (Advance Placement) courses: A.P. U.S. History, A.P. World History, A.P. Government and Politics, A.P. Chemistry and A.P. Physics. In Chemistry area only, Jessica has read 5 books as follows: Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Medicinal Chemistry. However, Jessica still needs to work on these A.P. courses later on with the Xpeed Fun One-On-One Elite-Tutoring system to widen and deepen her understanding. During the camp, Jessica has expanded her world from such high-tech learning technology as 3D Interactive Human Body Anatomy and fun first-hand experiments on electric circuits. We wish Jessica could maintain her love of learning and reinforce these strong interests in science and engineering in her upcoming bright and brilliant future.
The Xpeed Fun summer camp can nurture child prodigies academically in high quantity as well as in high quality. For example, the Xpeed Fun Platform can probably sharpen students’ soft skills better than anywhere else. Jessica has also read many books in the graduate MBA level, such as Project Management, MBA, Accounting, Economics, Marketing, Sales, Finance, Investment, Mass Media Marketing, Public Relations, Communication Skills, Operations and Resources Management, Management Information System, and even Leadership and Journalism. Soft skills intertwined with hard skills will refine all of our students with valuable life-long attributes, which will help them to be exceptionally well prepared for any career settings later on, especially in dealing with people or managing projects. Jessica has also been trained to be social and nice to others. Jessica’s dancing skill has been improved. However, Jessica’s singing skill needs to be improved later on. Jessica still has a long way to go in sharpening her spelling, typing, writing, pronouncing and public speaking skills. However, this is only an eight week camp. The astonishing academic accomplishments of Jessica and all other students have exceeded all our expectations, and have broken many stereotypes and barriers of what a child can do under the optimum opportunities that every child deserves.
Unlike any other schools, the Xpeed Fun platform has been encouraging each and every student to be social with others, even in our very serious math and college-level reading sessions, by speaking out loud 30,000 to 50,000 words per day, more than 1.5 million words in total over the 8-week camp, greatly sharpening Jessica's both social skills and oral speech capability. For a child who has been speaking Chinese at home, this learning dose equals to years of total speaking in any U.S. public school. Leadership always starts from the speaking and people skills; we hope Jessica can benefit from this Xpeed speech training for the rest of her life. Finally, in the 8-week Xpeed Fun camp, kids learn with high quality and fun, and 3 hours of the Xpeed Fun quality learning every day is more than enough to be a child prodigy.
Based on Jessica’s performance, we proudly award Miss Jessica Wang with iPad Air and the Mr. Maverick Fellowship toward the 2015 Xpeed Fun program.
* The Mr. Maverick Fellowship only awards to top 1% academic achievers on the Xpeed Fun Platform of Global Elites Network Xpeed Learning Academy, which tags "the best of the best of the best".
一位才來美國三年的靦腆害羞的八歲中國農村小姑娘，經過翰林院 8 週快樂夏令營的精英教育後， 旋即變成了康州公立學校內最矚目的全能神童，猶如烏雞變成了金鳳凰。 在夏令營結束後的全校測試中，獲得了數學全校篩選考試第一；單詞拼寫 Spelling Bee 全校第二的好成績，並被學校選為 Speech 的 6 人代表，成為唯一一位同時獲得這三項殊榮的好學 生。這神奇的巨變是怎樣發生的呢？
傑西卡是一位隨母親從中國農村才來美國三年的小移民，居住在美國康州 New Milford 小鎮，母女二人初來美國時無任何英語基礎，父親又傷殘，家境貧寒，母親露西靠幫傭勉強維持家庭生計。
小傑西卡初到學校連26個字母都讀不準，無論老師問什麼，傑西卡就只能忐忑地猜著去答Yes或No，美國老師講課更是如聽天書般不知其所云。學校看傑西卡英文聽說沒有一丁點兒基礎，只好安排她到特殊語言教育老師那去過英語聽說關。而露西的工作非常艱辛，每週需工作 7 天，每天 都是早 6 晚 9，白天無法照顧女兒，自己又不懂英文，學校的功課根本輔導不了。因為家境不寬裕，女兒也沒機會像其他小孩一樣參加課後補習和文體活動，傑西卡的學習成績在班級中處於墊底狀態。
傑西卡的改變始於 2014 的暑假期間與翰林院院長 Mr. Maverick 在北康州華夏學校的一次偶遇。當時馬武瑞克老師正在給學生家長推薦翰林院快樂夏令營的先進學習方法，露西沒時間聽講座只拿了一份如何快速學習的幾十頁全英文講座幻燈稿，經一字一 句查字典讀懂講演稿後，她被這種全 新的學習方法和前景所吸引，決定讓女兒傑西卡與當地的精英子弟一起參加 2014 翰林院在威郡 White Plains 8 週的快樂學習夏令營。
在夏令營，8 歲的傑西卡愛唱歌跳舞，更愛與同伴玩耍遊戲，但是在學業上卻是最吃力的一個。在夏令營之前，她的康州公立學校數學成績中還只有 3，屬於中等，而英文閱讀詞彙就遠不如別人了。剛開始做夏令營閱讀詞彙功課明顯不如其他在美國土生土長的華裔子弟 ABC。但傑西卡也有她的優勢，中國大陸長大的她算術能力加減乘除基本功，運算速度比別的同年級兒童快得多。更重要的是，看到父母竭盡全力幫自己，小傑西卡十分珍惜夏令營的每一分鐘，認真完成了每一項培訓項目。最終她還贏在了龜兔賽跑的終點線上，獲得了只有前 1% 的翰林院學生才有資格的2014年度Mr. Maverick Fellowship 大獎這一殊榮（傑西卡在翰林院的成就請去讀英文版 http://XpeedFun.org 的 Fellowship 專欄）。
功夫不負有心人。經過短短8週的翰林院夏令營約 50 倍峰值速度的高效學習方法培訓，傑西卡數學從3年級坐火箭直飛到 10 年級，即小學直達高中，SAT I數學2千多道模考題也做了幾遍正確率高達 94%。英文詞彙通過8週夏令營就漲了上萬。用Wordly Wise 3000 全美學校最流行的詞彙寶典測試，一直到12年級只有約5%不會的生僻英文詞彙。閱讀速度單詞拼寫能力也自然跟著暴漲。在翰林院夏令營中已經將 5 門大學先修課 AP 美國歷史、AP 政府與政治、AP 地理、AP 物理與 AP 化學數千張卡片讀過 3 遍。
對傑西卡的巨變學校老師簡直不敢相信，又專門對她進行了閱讀測試，發現四年級課堂上的初級讀物對她這個在夏令營中已經讀過上百本高中大學級別，覆蓋了7個專業精簡版教材的「神童」來說已經太簡單了，經校長特批給她特地訂了一個特殊的桌 子，一次可以容納 30 本書。學校還決定給他配備 8 年級以上的老師，從 8 年級數學開始教起，作為以後拿出去競賽的種子選手儲備。還授予她特權：全校只有她可以不讀班上的兒童讀物， 可以一次到圖書館借很多書回到班上來讀。
最近傑西卡又傳來捷報，在全校 四、五、六三個年級超過一千人的大比拼中，每個年級選出3個最優秀的美國語言，文化、政治、經濟、歷 史、地理最好的代表，參加初中 6 年級的 Social Studies 競賽性質的考試， 在四年級的三個學生中只有她進入了學校前三名，并以 99 分 A+ 的最好成績獲得第一名，榮獲全校特等獎。而其他二位同級學生只考了三四十分。如果以綜合能力來排名，8 歲的傑西卡當之無愧地成了全校四、五、六三個年級的狀元。
對這位二年前還需要英文特殊教育的中國來的學生來說，學校所有老師都認為不可思議的奇跡。因為學習上的極度超前，自信心自然比天還高，前幾週競選 Student Government 還當上了Director。校長又授予她特殊榮譽與特權，讓她充當全校的 Queen，來管理學校的學生事務。因為她每一門功課都極度超前，學校常年給她配備了 5 － 7 個精英老師私教，教導她積極進步，如今傑西卡已成為了康州的一飛衝天的金鳳凰。
