Our Reading Programs
We have created a standards based rigorous curriculum for your child focusing on everything from phonological awareness and phonics to comprehension. We will be doing this through explicit instruction and modeling meta cognitive strategies while implementing different scaffolds to help all students access and master Common Core State Standards. During our sessions we will progress monitor individuals to set ambitious yet attainable goals to increase their ability to access differentiated text and foster a love of reading. Students will support and learn from partners in the same Zone of Proximal Development to access and understand new text.
Our Writing Programs
Our comprehensive writing programs are carefully crafted to nurture a love for writing and develop essential skills. Grounded in the Common Core State Standards, each 8-week program focuses on specific genres including narrative, expository, and opinion. Students will practice writing on demand, engage in the publishing process, and enhance their spelling correspondences based on their 1:1 pre-assessment.
Our Math Programs
Our dynamic Math program focuses on building a strong foundation in mathematical concepts and problem-solving skills. Whether it’s understanding relationships between numbers, representing and solving addition and subtraction problems, making sense of multi-step problems, or applying math to real-world scenarios, our program is designed to nurture a deep understanding of mathematical practices. Your child will gain confidence and proficiency in the world of numbers!
Our College Prep Programs
Intended for high school students, this course is designed to support college-bound scholars as they plan for life after graduation. Students will explore their own likes and interests and identify related majors and minors. Then, they will learn about the different college options that await them: community college, state colleges, the UCs, and private schools. Since most universities, including Cal State schools and the UCs, no longer require SAT or ACT scores, college-bound scholars need a strong academic resume. Students will learn ways that they can improve their academic resume; they will research local volunteer opportunities, learn about the importance of building positive relationships with their high school teachers, and learn how to approach someone for a letter of recommendation. In the final portion of this course, students will learn about the importance of college entrance essays. They will analyze UC Personal Insight Questions, as well as the most current Common Application essay prompts. Students will learn a process for breaking down the prompts, brainstorming their response, and writing an effective application essay. At the end of the course, each student will write and revise one college-entrance essay.
