The Elementary Program
The Elementary Program focuses on developing automaticity of mathematics facts, developing word families, reading classics, and meeting the goals of the newly adopted National Core Standards. Students were initially assessed in reading using the Frye Oral Reading Assessment. All students will be assessed again in June to determine growth in reading.
The Middle School Program
The Middle School Program focuses on preparation for Algebra through regular pre-algebra exercises and strategies. There is also a goal to provide on-going writing opportunities for this group. Peer brainstorming and editing are an integral part of the process. The Middle School students are also exposed to the newly adopted National Core Standards.
The High School Program
The High School Program drills down into the higher mathematics courses at the high school level. All of the students are in Algebra I, Algebra II, or Geometry. This group receives instruction in a variety of formats from individual help with homework, to mini-lessons on skills to fill gaps in learning.
Focus on Enriching the Brain with H.O.T.S.
This year we are focusing on developing Higher Order Thinking Skills (H.O.T.S.). Every tutoring session begins with students involved in games and activities that challenge the students’ ability to reason, think, and problem –solve. Some of the games and activities that we use are, The Sets Game, The Spot It Game, Sudoku, Triangle Jumping Boards, and many other special created games.
