Is Your Child Ready for Kindergarten?

If you're not sure about your child's readiness, this is the perfect course for him or her. Students are given a pre-test of readiness skills to find out which skills are lacking and which are strong. The results are used to develop programs individually suited to your child

Identification of letters, numbers, letter sounds, sight words, shapes, and colors are just a few of the skills that can be taught to give students a head start as they enter kindergarten.

  • MATH

Ages: K-Adult

These basic-skill courses provide students with the opportunity to catch up or pull ahead of their appropriate grade or age levels. Each student is assessed to determine her or his incoming skill levels, and then is placed in a program at an appropriate level of challenge. (See Testing Information.)


Ages: 8-Adult

Our basic-skills course in reading is developed for students who have difficulties with reading fluency and comprehension. Young students may need to learn consonant sounds and consonant teams. Older pupils may need to begin with one-syllable words with short vowels, long vowels, and variants. Still-older students may need to learn how to break apart words into compounds, consonant + le's, two consonants in the middle, vowel-consonant-vowel patterns, prefixes, suffixes, and Greek and Latin roots.

We use a highly effective combination of SRA Direct Instruction Programs and supplemental phonics instruction that systematically introduces and reinforces the 48 vowel and consonant sounds in the English language. Additional skills in vocabulary and comprehension are taught throughout the course.

Monitoring of progress in fluency is accomplished through timed readings and graphing the number of words and errors read per minute. Comprehension is measured through graded passages in main ideas, conclusions, and inferences. Our basic reading programs are not Orton-Gillingham. They're better!

Pre-Algebra I/II covers solving for variables, understanding positive and negative integers, and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions, decimals, and percents. Pre-algebra II reviews computations with fractions, decimals, and percents.

Algebra I begins with a pre-algebra review, then continues with distributive rules for multiplication, writing equations for lines, placing points on number lines, understanding polynomials, and factoring polynomials.

Algebra II begins with an algebra I review on graphing linear equations, then goes on to cover the solving of pairs of equations, the computing of rational equations, the simplifying radical expressions, and the solving of radical equations.

Geometry begins with a review of algebraic skills necessary for solving postulates. Theorems and proofs are introduced and reinforced throughout the study of circles, angles, volume, area, and coordinate planes.

Calculus begins with limits and continuity, followed by differentiation and integration.

Note: In some schools, a student may receive college credit if she or he passes the A.P. calculus test at the end of the session.

In addition to basic and advance skills instruction, we offer school-year tutoring. Our school-year tutoring utilizes a "look ahead " approach to secondary subjects that students typically find difficult. Our tutors review difficult concepts recently covered, then preview upcoming, difficult concepts and assignments and help prepare students for tests. This approach is a wonderful confidence booster for students struggling in difficult classes.
