What We Offer

☼ Summer 2018! ☼

PRIVATE ONE-ON-ONE TUTORING

Monday – Friday (scheduled appointments)

Our teachers work individually with students in all subjects, for all ages. Curriculum is designed and adapted to specifically target that student’s individual needs and goals. We can review the previous year’s learning or advance into next year’s curriculum.

 

COLLEGE PREP (For our high schoolers!)

Monday – Friday (scheduled appointments)

Summer is a perfect time to get ready for college admission. We help identify colleges that would be a good fit for the student, write essays, begin applications, research scholarships and grants, prepare for entrance exams, teach interview techniques, etc.

 

SAT/ACT/ISEE/SSAT/Quest Program PREP

Monday – Friday (scheduled appointments)

Prepare for the SAT/ACT and private school or gifted and talented entrance tests. Students can take a sample test here at our center and then review it privately with one of our teachers. They will learn where their weak spots are and solidify them prior to taking the official test. Students will also learn proven test taking strategies to help maximize their overall points. All of our SAT/ACT materials and techniques have been adapted to the new style of tests!

 

BASIC ESSAY WRITING (Grades 7-9)

Monday – Friday (scheduled appointments)

Each session we will focus on a different part of writing an essay – from each paragraph’s job to using transitions and doing research. Students will have the opportunity to write a full persuasive and expository essay and practice editing and revising techniques.

 

HIGH LEVEL WRITING (Grades 10-12)

Monday – Friday (scheduled appointments)

We will focus on writing each of the level 5 graduation requirement essays: persuasive, compare/contrast, expository, and literary analysis. We will complete, from outline to final edits, one essay per week. This class is not recommended for students who need to practice basic essay writing. Students will also practice researching, notating, using quotes effectively, MLA citations (in-text and bibliographic), and diction/syntax.
