" I have NEVER Let Schooling Interfere With My Education." -- Mark Twain

Schooling and education are TOTALLY different. 

The current schooling model is BROKEN. It is interfering with your child's education.

It is NOT preparing your kid for the future but only for the past. 

That's why most teens & young adults struggle to succeed in life through this broken model.

Listen, well-intentioned parents, I hear you. I am a mom. I have two kids. My kids' future and happiness matter more than anything else to me. I did my research and saved every penny that I could so that I can send my kids to the best private school possible. I read relevant books and actively participated in educational activities and events that were beneficial to my kids' future. On top of that, I am well educated. I have a MA from Syracuse University and a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland. And I taught in the classroom for 10+ years and spent almost two decades in higher education... 

BUT STILL... 

My kids seemed to be bored and showed little interest in learning. In fact, my husband and I struggled a great deal to get them up in the morning at 8am to get to school... It's an ordeal to go to school to say the least.

My happy, playful, imaginative, inquisitive kids were gone... 

Something was wrong. Something was not working. Something was missing...

"Was it my kid?", I asked myself

I searched and became a student again. I also left my prestigious Associate Professor position to start my own school, Classroom Without Walls.

My own research and professional experience as an education consultant and entrepreneur revealed a big secret to me. 

Are you ready to hear my big secret? 

That is, The kids are NOT the problem; the problem is the CENTURY-OLD EDUCATION MODEL

Hear me out on five specific reasons. 

Reason One: Grade Point Average is actually INVERSELY related to Innovation Orientation

Grade Point Average (GPA) is actually inversely related to innovation orientation. In other words, the higher the grade, the less likely your kid is to innovate. This is because the traditional educational and evaluation system trains and conditions your kids to be obedient and factor workers. Yet, in today's information and digital economy, innovation is an important element to become job- and future-ready.

Reason Two: Creativity decreases as kids become more educated

The most watched TED talk is by Sir Ken Robinson, Do schools kill creativity. It has gained 68 Million+ views. Mr. Robinson made a compelling argument of why schools tend to kill children's creativity. The famous paperclip study also demonstrated this. The young kids in the study ( 4 and 5 years old) scored 98% in terms of creativity and divergent thinking (creative ways to use paperclips). But as they grow older, their creativity level dropped to 50% and eventually to 2%. What happened is that these kids became more educated. The same thing is happening to your kid right now as they sit in their classes, filling out bubble sheets and multiple choices. 

Reason Three: Kids attending high-achieving schools are now "at-risk" groups ( more mental health & substance abuse issues)

Most parents have the perception that if they send their kids to the best private school, everything will be taken care of. Their kids will be going to an Ivy League school and have a successful career. And they have done a good job as a parent. WRONG. More and more studies are showing that children who are attending high-achieving schools are having a lot more mental health and substance abuse issues than kids who don't. A big national study of almost 22,000 high school kids in the US suggested that almost 70% of students feel negative about their schools, with three dominant emotions including stressed (79.83%), bored (69.51%), and tired (58%). These numbers accurately reflect how your kids are feeling about their schooling right now. . 

Reason Four: Soft skills carry MROE weight than test scores when it comes to college admission

Research has shown that Emotional Intelligence and soft skills are actually two twice more predictive of a person's long-term success than IQ. Yet, most schools focus predominately on IQ. A number of large studies conducted by Adobe, LinkedIn, and McKinsey have all unanimously suggested the importance of soft skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication, creative problem solving, and critical thinking. In a most recent Adobe study, they revealed that scores and Grade Point Average (GPA) are actually NOT as important as what students think when it comes to college admission. 

Reason Five: Experience weighs a lot more than degrees when it comes to hiring

Google said in an interview that "test scores are useless" when it comes to hiring people to work at Google. In fact, Google recently launched their own career certificates to replace the traditional four-year college for relevant roles including Data Analyst, Project Management, and User Experience Design. In fact, Google is NOT the only company that is eliminating the college degree requirement. 20+ companies have joined Google to no longer require a college degree such as IBA, Apple, Starbucks, Hilton, etc. The trend is clear. Your child's degree is NOT going to help them become successful in life. They need a lot more and that's what we cover at Classroom Without Walls. We teach your kid what schools are NOT to become future ready.

Because of these 5 reasons, at Classroom Without Walls, we custom-design curriculum and offer one-on-one coaching, because we believe learning has to be personal

No educational programs out there do what we do at Classroom Without Walls.

We future proof your child through our tested and proven curriculum to make learning FUN, RELEVANT, & TRANSFORMATIVE so that your kid can start developing important 21st-century knowledge, skills, and mindset to be career- and future-ready.

"I literally cried 😭"

"I literally cried 😭 when I saw the transformation and growth of these students before my eyes. To see my own Goddaughter who suffers from severe anxiety conquer her fears and give a presentation. Watching students work together to build a real business in a "mock" environment and learn from educators who have actually done it already.


...I can't help but think how much more successful I would be if I had mentors in my life to show me the REALITY of starting a business, or how do validate an idea."

"Throw everything you know about the typical conference out the window and imagine this. A 10-day immersion program in a new, exciting country where you are surrounded by students from all ages, industries and backgrounds who all share one simple desire: to learn the life skills necessary to thrive in the globalized, connected world of the future. That’s what Dr. Ai’s Classroom Without Walls Entrepreneurship Immersion Programme (it's now called Life Accelerator) was all about.

Our daily sessions were filled with amazing speakers from all over the world who not only taught the subjects they spoke on, but lived it.

As amazing as these sessions were – and they were amazing – stepping outside of the “classroom” was the true highlight of this experience. The choice of Singapore for this programme was not coincidental. Dr. Ai specifically chose it because she wanted her students to learn, not just from speeches and workshops held in a hotel conference room, but to see it all in action in a functional, thriving society. In many ways, Singapore itself was the classroom without walls.

Dubbed the “Silicon Valley of Asia”, Singapore has a thriving tech scene. As part of the programme, we visited the local offices of tech-giants, Hubspot and Adobe. These are businesses hard at work, building and advancing technology all over the world, so you’d think they’d be all work all the time, but it was the complete opposite. I was blown away by how they transformed their offices into spaces where employees could enjoy life and work at the same time – including fitness centers, meditation rooms and even areas for lounging and sleeping when employees needed a break."

From Pam Roy, USA
Meaningful Education Advocate, Blogger, & Mentor

"My daughter, Rachel, is currently in Dr. Ai's Life Accelerator program. I asked her this morning what she thought of her experience so far. She said that she loved the real-world, RELEVANT perspective on essential life skills. She thinks Dr. Ai is a "great teacher, really exceptional." She said she is "what a teacher should be". She feels that Dr. Ai is always there for her. 

As a parent, I love to see my daughter so engaged and excited. On a recent intern application, she was able to include her global collaboration experience from the program. Dr. Ai had her students connect with a student in Singapore, coordinate a presentation together, and then present it on a Livestream show. Rachel not only learned about the collaboration and presentation aspects but the cultural difference in their approach was really enlightening to her. 

In summary, she says Dr. Ai is "The BEST!"."

"I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Dr. Ai at her #Classroomwithoutwalls initiative in Singapore. 

This woman is incredible! Her passion for changing an outdated, broken system to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs and students is inspiring. 

Her drive and knowledge is impressive and her childlike, light-hearted and playfulness a reminder that we all should not take ourselves - and life - too seriously. 

I am happy and incredibly grateful to say that I have not only found a fellow "world changer"/disruptor but also a soul sister and friend in her. 

Thank you for everything that you do, Ai. You are wonderful. :-)"

Lots of tips and social media hacks, but most important of all is her way of being, authentic, generous, inspiring, caring and so connected with the audience. We totally got everything she did was focused on adding value first. The feedback was sensational. Everyone was raving about how useful, helpful and impactful her talk was. We are all in love with her and wanting more of her work.

The talk was conducted with so much expertise and in a wonderful storytelling style that the audience was completely engaged, involved and impacted powerfully. It's almost like a wake up call for steering the ship called social media. We got clarity and action steps. So grateful for your contribution Dr. Ai!

She's full of positivity and always sharing her knowledge on a wide range of topics and is constantly inspiring those around her to learn and grow. Her weekly podcasts are very educational and I look forward to them weekly.  I've learned so much from her podcasts and if others are growth-oriented then Dr. Ai is the person to connect with.  Dr. Ai is an incredible warrior, on a quest to change the current education system and empower others to reach great heights and settling for average isn't acceptable anymore."
