Writing group classes cover all forms of academic writing: short answer, persuasive essay, literary response, narrative, research paper, timed writing, and poetry. Teachers start by laying out expectations for each assignment, explaining the reason for every step. Students write in class, receive feedback, then finish at home. At the following class, teachers explain strengths and weaknesses of each student, covering grammar, spelling, punctuation, organization, vocabulary, and critical thinking. Homework typically runs from 30 to 90 minutes per week, depending on the grade and student.

Reading classes focus on reading comprehension and verbal response. Classes work on oral reading, vocabulary, phonics, analysis, and literary terms. Students then read at home, returning for in-class discussions. This builds skills in grammar, vocabulary, literary analysis, comprehension and a love of reading. Homework typically runs 60 to 120 minutes per week.

Math classes shore up weak spots and prepare students for placement tests and success.  During the school year. We focus on algebra and geometry readiness and skills.

SAT I Preparation
SAT I Preparation classes teach reading comprehension and vocabulary for the reading sections, and grammar, sentence structure, and essay writing for the writing sections. Solo and group classes are available.

Reading Solo
Reading Solo classes help students having trouble learning to read and comprehend. We have helped many children crack the reading code, often within just a few weeks.
