Elementary

Personalized Solutions for Grades K-5

Elementary school is a time for your student to put his/her best foot forward in school. It is also a time when you may need extra time and support identifying specific learning needs in your child and how best to meet them. We celebrate the unique combination of talents, personality, and learning style of each student to bring him/her to the next level of comfort, confidence, and success in learning. We bring quality tutoring and relationship building to learning intervention.

Services we most commonly provide:

  • Reading Intervention(Orton Gillingham or Literacy Coaching)
  • Math Intervention (Based on student’s school district curriculum)
  • Writing Intervention
  • Organization & study skills

MIDDLE SCHOOL

Personalized Solutions for Grades 6-8

Middle School is a time of change and growth. Your student is reading to learn and switching classrooms more frequently per subject. We have found students who have never struggled in school before experience new stressors with the added materials and course schedule they’re asked to manage. Learners with ADHD may need extra transition time; or your family may be dealing with a learning diagnosis for the first time.

Our middle school Learning Coached are certified teachers or specialists in the areas in which they teach. We also offer single subject coaching for the middle-school-aged student who needs a quick catch up in a specific subject area.

Services we most commonly provide include:

  • Language Arts / Writing

  • Mathematics

  • Science

  • Organization / Study skills

  • Languages – Spanish, Latin, Chinese
