Developmental and Corrective Reading
Whether your child is just starting to read or has been reading for years, we have a programme that can strengthen and build their skills.
Developmental Reading (grades JK-2) helps younger children get started on the right foot. Using Learning to Read techniques such as: phonemic awareness, phonics, and blending skills, we work with your child to build their fluency and accuracy levels allowing them to enjoy reading and feel confident in their day to day school work.
Corrective Reading (grades 3-7) builds on those early skills and switches to more of a Reading to Learn approach with a greater focus on vocabulary and comprehension work.
Many students feel frustrated and confused by the fast-paced mathematics curriculum taught in school.
Our programmes use a structured approach to learning that puts the focus on strengthening skills and mastering facts. Students are placed in the module that best suits their current abilities and work through the various skills-building lessons with confidence and accuracy.
Corrective Mathematics Modules
All of the above programmes use a structured approach involving multiple learning strategies to make sure students are not just reading but understanding and remembering what they are taught.
All students are assessed before enrolment so that they are started at the ideal point in the programmes.
Some students have a good grasp of the above concepts but need some extra assistance to be prepared for grade 8 and 9 expectations. For those students subject based tutoring can provide homework assistance and skills remediation in particular areas. To be successful in higher level mathematics, most students require more detailed instruction in algebra, integers, order of operations, fractions, decimals, and percents.
Summer Session Academic Clinics
Reading, reading comprehension, writing, spelling, and math programmes are available to all grades. Students may attend weekly sessions offered in July or August. The most gain is made when students attend 4 week sessions. Parents can choose from 1, 1.5, or 2 hour sessions.
