Borenson And Associates, Inc., With Headquarters In Allentown, PA Will Be Training Additional Instructors To Conduct The Making Algebra Child’s Play Workshops Nationwide

Since 1990 Borenson and Associates has conducted more than 2500 Making Algebra Child’s Play workshops showing teachers how the visual and kinesthetic approach of Hands-On Equations enables even 4th and 5th graders to succeed with algebraic equations not normally presented until the 8th or 9th grade.


The instructor candidates, coming from five different states, will be receiving their training at the Holiday Inn in downtown Allentown. The training will take place each day from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It is expected that a student demonstration will take place each day from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

All of the candidates have used Hands-On Equations in their classrooms for several years and are now coming to learn how to present the program to teachers.

Leading the training program will be Dr. Henry Borenson, who received a U.S. Patent for Hands-On Equations. With this group, the company will have about three dozen certified instructors. Borenson anticipates the need for 100 instructors within the next two years to meet the growing interest in his approaching to simplifying the abstract nature of algebra.

Recently, the company received their first order from Educational Opportunities, Inc. who have set a goal of introducing the program to 1,000 classroom in Africa, Asia and India.

“There is no reason for young students to be intimated by algebra,” says Borenson. “Through this visual and kinesthetic approach algebraic concepts become intuitive and are much easier to understand than division of fractions or long division– and much more fun!”

Borenson believes that when young students are successful with algebra their sense of self-esteem is enhanced. “There is no doubt about the effectiveness of this program,” he says. We have almost ten research studies posted at to prove it.

The Essayist on the Controversy Surrounding the Model Academic Custom Writing Industry

A great deal of controversy surrounds the model academic custom-writing industry. Are the companies which provide academic custom writing services legitimate or not and do they support plagiarism? There is no single, clear-cut answer to these questions as the custom writing industry, as the case with any other, has the good and the bad, the honest and the dishonest. The question is how can potential customers separate the wheat from the chaff, distinguish between the good and the bad? This is an important concern among new customers, not to mention those who have previously had a less than `positive experience.’

There is no one answer to the question of whether custom writing companies are legitimate or not. The popular hype surrounding the illegitimacy of the majority aside, there are numerous model custom writing companies which enjoy extremely solid and well-earned reputations for providing customers with non-plagiarised, quality work which more than lives up to their stated guarantees. We, at Oxbridge Researchers Ltd., know that our network of model custom written academic essays, dissertations, thesis and research papers, is legitimate.

Whether you place your order through,, or any one of our websites, you can count on the following: 1) you will be assigned an academically-qualified and experienced researcher-writer; 2) while we employ both EFL and ESL writers, customers can always request that their work be handled by an EFL writer – we give you this option despite our complete faith in and absolute knowledge of our ESL writers’ linguistic expertise, linguistic proficiency and fluency; 3) your confidentiality is always guaranteed and your writer, despite the option of direct communication and messaging between the both of you, is never privy to your name or contact details; 4) the work you receive is always fully compliant with your instructions; 5) we never leave you hanging but immediately inform you whether or not your work can be completed within the deadline you specified; 6) you may rest assured that before you receive your work, it has been thoroughly vetted by our Quality Assurance Department for both quality and plagiarism; 7) we will never ignore your messages and customers can always get in touch, not only with the Operations Manager of the website through which they placed their order but with any of Oxbridge Researchers’ partners and top management people; and 8 ) we are a legitimate, UK-registered organization, with a presence in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt – so wherever you are, you have the option of physically meeting with one of our managers or partners.

Naturally, Oxbridge Researchers Ltd is completely biased in favour of the academic custom writing services it offers through,,,,,, and We are a legitimate company which offers flawless academic model custom writing services. Our very natural partiality towards ourselves and our services, however, does not blind us to the presence of several other excellent companies in this industry. Academic Answers, for example, is a UK-based company which, through, and several other websites, offers customers a truly remarkable service. Both the service they extend and the work they provide customers is distinguished by their excellent, plagiarism-free and professional nature. As a matter of fact, despite Oxbridge Researchers’’ partiality towards its own services, it cannot deny that Academic Answers is one of the industry’s most important leaders.

Some readers may assume that Oxbridge Researchers identified Academic Answers as a fully legitimate and excellent company because we share a nationality – British. This is not at all true as despite the popular hype regarding the inherently dishonest nature of non-Western academic custom writing companies, there are some truly excellent ones, with Brownie Freelance Ltd standing out as a case in point. One of the most successful companies in the academic custom writing industry, Brownie Freelance is a UK registered company with a physical presence in London. The Director, a Ukrainian gentleman, adheres to a strategy of honesty. Hence, through, one of the several websites owned by Brownie Freelance, they openly admit that they originate from the Ukraine and operate their call centre there. They further acknowledge that they hire ESL writers, as well EFL ones. That they make these declarations is a clear indication of their respect for customers and potential customers, whereby they provide them with honest information as opposed to false advertising claims. That they make these admissions quite clearly shows that they are fully confident that they will provide customers with an excellent service and even better paper, irrespective of whether they are British or Ukrainian or whether your writer is ESL or EFL. They neither need to lie about who they hire and who they are as they know that they will provide you with nothing short of excellence.

That Oxbridge Researchers should devote so much space to acknowledging competitors, rather than promote its own model custom writing network,,,,,, and, is nothing other than an expression of the ethics to which we are determine to adhere to. We will not slam our competitors, as others do, nor will we dismiss them as scammers. Our competitors are just that – competitors and not enemies. Besides, were we to label all in the industry as scammers, what would that say about us? What message would it give customers and potential clients? It would say that we, at Oxbridge Researchers, cannot establish a reputation or a place for ourselves in the industry via the services we offer through,,,,, and and, therefore, have to badmouth our competitors in order to scare customers away from them. As for the message we will be communicating, it is one which quite effectively warns customers to stay away from this industry as it is full of scammers and that companies within disrespect the principle of clean and fair competition. This is not true.

Yes, the model academic custom writing industry is a controversial one with much of the controversy surrounding it resulting from the tendency to slam competitors, thereby labelling the entire industry as dishonest. This is not at all true as while there is a large number of completely unethical and absolutely unqualified companies in the industry, there is a number of highly honest, completely qualified and excellent companies as well. Hence, while Oxbridge Researchers would prefer that you place your model custom written dissertation, thesis, essay, research paper or term paper order through or one of our other websites, it assures you that should you choose to opt for another company, you will find some good ones out there. Importantly, do not forget to separate the wheat from the chaff while making your company selection. Our article on how to do so may be accessed via

As for whether or not the use of a model academic custom writing services constitutes plagiarism that is the topic for another article, to be published soon. Meanwhile, please visit us through or to familiarise yourself with our services and who we are.

College and University Application Management Service

While these are the summer months for students and a time for relaxation and enjoyment, countless are worrying over one of the most important decisions they will ever make in their lives – a decision which is likely to have a profound effect on their futures and career-paths. Which college or university should they apply to? While British, American, Canadian and Australian students have probably made that decision already and, with the help of their school’s academic advisor, sent off their application forms months ago, overseas students have not. Indeed, countless Chinese, Asian and Middle Eastern students, intent on pursuing their university studies in the United States or Great Britain are rather confused about where to go and how to go about it. This is where Oxbridge Researchers Ltd steps in.

While a British company, Oxbridge Researchers is culturally and geographically positioned to help overseas students gain admission into universities and colleges in the United States, Great Britain and Australia. The reason? Oxbridge Researchers’ managers and owners are geographically dispersed across four continents, making them accessible to nearly all and, have a solid and experienced network of professional academicians in place – a network which has the experience and expertise necessary to advise students on the universities most suited for them and to handle their entire university/college application process.

Oxbridge Researchers’ University/College Application Management Services requires minimal work and effort on the part of the student, leaving the work and the `headache’ to our academic specialists. As a student, all you need to do is contact us through and we will immediately contact you back. A personal academic advisor and university/college application manager will be assigned to you. The selection of your personal advisor is determined by your personal preferences, your requirements and, importantly, your nationality or country of origin. For example, if you are a Chinese student, your personal advisor will have first-hand knowledge of your national system of education as well as of that of the country you are seeking to further your studies in. Similarly, if you are an Arab or Saudi Arabian student aspiring to apply to a university in the United States, you will be assigned an advisor who is knowledgeable about the Thanawiya Amma or the various educational systems in place across the Middle East and, of course, is (or was) a career academician in the United States.

After contact has been established with your personal advisor, you will be asked a series of questions pertaining to your preferred place of study (country and universities), your chosen major (if you have already made that decision), your tuition budget and your grades. Your advisor will then compile a list of the most suitable universities for you and explain what you might expect f r o m each – advantages and disadvantages. After you have made your selection (with the help of your personal advisor), Oxbridge Researchers Ltd will complete your application forms, mail them off to your selected universities and keep you appraised of the entire situation.

Apart f r o m the fact that Oxbridge Researchers offers invaluable guidance in helping you make your university/college decision, it maximises your chances of acceptance into your preferred college/university through the preparation and submission of a perfectly completed and written application form. As many of you already know, while your grades are the primary determinant of acceptance or rejection into your preferred university or college, your Admission Letter, Personal Statement and accurate and flawless completion of your academic application forms, exert a significant influence on the decision made by the Admissions Officer. If your form is not accurately completed, your application will not be considered; if your Personal Statement or Admission Letter are not perfectly written, engaging and expressive of your potential, your chances of acceptance are significantly reduced. Through the perfect and flawless completion of your application forms, Oxbridge Researchers maximises your chances of gaining admission into the university of your choice.

So, if you want to become all that you can be, allow Oxbridge Researchers to help you. If you are unsure which university is best for you, we will guide you; if you have already chosen your university, we will maximise your chances of acceptance. Taking out our University/College Application Management Service is an investment in your future and a golden opportunity for you to maximise your potential for success. Think of it this way: in Oxbridge Researchers you have a partner not a service; you have a friend intent on helping you succeed and not an impersonal service provider interested only in your service.

The Custom-Research Industry: Straight Talk

There are countless custom-writing companies out there, each claiming industry-leadership for itself and loudly denouncing the majority of its competitors as fraudsters and scam artists. Companies founded less than a year ago and not even operational yet, loudly proclaim themselves the best in the industry, insist that they have been in business for the past ten years, irrespective of irrefutable evidence to the contrary and, spend much of their PR time and effort trying to scare students away from their competitors. Oxbridge Researchers Ltd will not go this route and the only thing you will ever get from us is straight talk.

In the spirit of honesty and straight talk, here is a bit of information about the company. While Oxbridge Researchers’ majority owner and Executive Director has 15 years of experience in academia and the model custom-research industry and its Quality Control Director, close to twenty, the company is only 1 year old. Certainly, its owners/board members and every single one of its operations managers have years of industry experience and, without exception, boast graduate and post-graduate degrees, but Oxbridge Researchers was only incorporated 1 year ago. To be exact, in August 2008. We freely admit this because, apart from the policy of transparency upon which we built this company, we know that the service you receive from us will always exceed your expectations. We know that your grades will soar with our help.

Oxbridge Researchers’ ownership is primarily British but its partnership composition firmly establishes it as a multicultural company. British, American, Australian and Egyptian ownership give the company a global, almost transnational feel, ideally suited for the services of an international clientele, in a globalised world. Our incorporation documents say that we are a UK company and, given that 75% is British-owned, we could simply have left it at that and not provided you with all this information. We chose to, however, because we are proud of our multinational character and are committed to ensuring that potential clients have all the facts about Oxbridge Researchers.

Among the facts which clients should consider when making their purchase decision is that our Write Right team of researchers have all been handpicked by the board members and by our Operations Managers. Whether you place your order through,,,,, or, you can be sure that the writer-researcher assigned to your custom-ordered model research is one of the best in this industry. We never try out writers on customers but make sure that each is absolutely right for the job before we hire them as members of our Write Right team.

Oxbridge Researchers openly admits that some of our competitors are, indeed, excellent and provide their clients with truly good work.

So, the question is why should you come to us instead of go to them? The answer is simple: the service we offer is not matched by any other. Apart from a flawless piece of research (which some of our competitors are also capable of delivering), we are the only ones in the industry who send clients 1) a confidentiality contract, explicitly stating that the company will never reveal their identity to a third party; 2) an originality (plagiarism) report generated by the plagiarism detection engine most favoured by universities around the world (but we do not store the dissertations, thesis, research papers and essays on their database), establishing the absolute plagiarism-free nature of our work; 3) full ownership over the work you receive from us, meaning that, unlike some others, we will never resell your dissertation, thesis, research, essay or coursework or upload it for internet publication; and 4) unlimited free revisions for several weeks following the completion and submission of your work.

Whether through,,,,, or, we know that you will be more than satisfied with the work you receive from us. Indeed, our confidence in our service is such that we do not need to post marketing articles supposedly composed by a satisfied customer and, most definitely, need neither to blast our competitors, labelling them as fraudsters when the majority are not, nor to lie about the company’s age. With Oxbridge Researchers Ltd., you will only ever get straight talk and quality work.
