One on one, “Engaged In” programs:
Consistency and trust are integral parts of our programs and our one on one programs are just that; one instructor, one student. No shared time. We ensure each student is matched with an instructor who will best suit their needs, and they are kept with that instructor throughout their sessions. Each student receives a customized program; we do not fit round pegs into square holes. Our instructors are here to teach and support each and every one of their students. We are as excited about our students’ progress as they are.
Writing and Grammar
A common frustration for both parents and teachers is the brevity of our students’ writing. We know they’re capable – so why are they writing just three sentences and saying they’re done? We encourage them to write more – and they tell us, “I don’t know what else to say.” How can we teach them to be independent writers who expand their stories or essays without our help? You start here with….engaged in writing.
The brain is a fascinating operations center and everyday new scientific studies reveal incredible ways in which it operates. If we can harness the brain’s access to memory and its ability to process information then we can utilize the power of accelerated and effective study techniques. In order to take advantage of our brains abilities and increase our capacity to learn we must first know about and then master five critical skill areas. Our one on one study skills program is specifically tailored to the individual student, giving the student ultimate control over how they access, process and retain information.
Study skills can also help with homeschooling.

Many young students experience information overload with the way math is taught. Students are bombarded with so many algorithms to solve the same problem they become confused. Students often end up not understanding any one algorithm in depth and thus, simply become cognitively confused. With confusion comes the dislike of mathematics. Math should be fun and engaging.
Our one on one math program starts at the basics and helps students master the basic skills required to learn and master more complex mathematical applications.
Comprehension & Vocabulary
Proficient readers use a set of comprehension strategies to put meaning to text. In this program, you will be exposed to seven strategies skilled readers use to make sense of text. Comprehension strategy instruction helps students become purposeful, active readers, who are in control of their own reading comprehension. Let’s get to work!

Critical Thinking Skills
In today’s society, many people experience information overload. We are bombarded with messages to believe various ideas, to purchase things, support causes, and lead our lifestyle in a particular way. How do you know what to believe? How do you separate the truth from the myths?
The answer lies in critical thinking skills. The ability to clearly reason through problems and to present arguments in a logical, compelling way has become a key skill for survival in today’s world.
