  • Once again, our students loved the experience! This was our third experience this year and we love Academic Entertainment. Our performer Brian was vey professional and made it very easy to get set up. The performance was both educational and informative. We love when the entertainers ask the crowd questions, and teach them a "trick" or a take-away. We are highly satisfied.

  • The feedback from the staff was overwhelmingly positive. I asked the staff if they would recommend the presentation. Some comments include the following:
    1) YES! This was a man who knew his audience and knew how to capture their attention. If the kids got loud or overly excited, he knew how to bring them down a notch. He was awesome!
    2) I thought he was great. Students were engaged and enjoyed it. It was the perfect amount of time.
    3) My class loved it! They were talking about it after and trying to figure out how he did his tricks! I think it embedded math concepts in a way that the students didn’t even realize that they were learning they just thought they were having fun! It was also great that it had music and he interacted with the audience constantly! I hope definitely recommend it!
    4) Yes! The students really enjoyed it and talked about it all day. He had great control over their behavior as well. I think it would be great to do in the beginning of the year to really emphasize the importance of math.
    5) I thought it was fantastic!! He was very engaging and did really fun stuff all while the kids were learning. He had wonderful audience control and was able to keep the kids focused and quiet when it was time to be quiet. I would absolutely recommend him and hope that we will have him back next year!
    6) My kids really enjoyed the presentation "Math Magical". I definitely thought he kept them engaged the entire time. It was a great way to wrap up the year, plus they learned something from it!
    7) I enjoyed the presentation. He had good behavior management and kept the kids engaged. The tricks were fun, and it was good that math was emphasized, especially probability.

  • Brian came to two of our schools. The feedback was amazing. He was professional, engaging, funny, interactive, and informative. Perfect for our needs! The students, teachers and principals loved him and the program. They thought it was amazing and were so happy with it. He gave a great speech about how math effects our every day lives and the kids actually went home and spoke with their parents about the assembly. Highly recommend and I would be happy to have him back again!

    One of the principals wrote to me and also said the students loved it. The teachers loved how engaged the kids were and even saw students making connections to the assembly in their classrooms later in the day. We think he did a really good job of balancing fun/learning, which can be difficult to do. We also posted some pictures on Facebook and Twitter to reach parents/community members. Thanks for your work in setting up this assembly. We've only heard positive things.

    We hope our next program with Academic Entertainment is just as good! Thank you for all your help!
