The summer is a unique window of opportunity for students to catch up on and/or enhance their skills!
Our Summer Session runs from July 1st to August 15th. Students may register for the following programs:
Reading Comprehension & Written Expression Coaching
This one-on-one program is designed to help students develop and enhance their reading comprehension and written expression through the development of hands-on, participatory and active techniques and strategies. It will include reading between the lines and inferencing, identifying themes, developing plans for written work, idea generation and organization, and writing strong and structured paragraphs.
Format: 8 x 45-min sessions
This one-on-one program gives students a head start to the upcoming school year by giving them a first look at the upcoming year's materials and allows for academic remediation where needed. By using differentiated learning strategies in a one-on-one environment that holds their full attention (no distractions like in a classroom) students are better able to grasp, truly understand and master important concepts. When they return to school, they will then learn the materials for a second time in class. Since they had pre-teaching, they will already be aware of the subject and have an understanding of it, which will help them stay more focused and attentive, and allow them to keep up with the class.
Format: 8 x 1 hour sessions
Study Skills Coaching
This one-on-one course will help students learn the basic study and organizational skills needed to achieve academic success. Topics covered include the development of systems of organization, planning for tests and assignments, as well as strategies for note-taking, studying, and test-taking. Note: This course provides the basics of studying and academic success. To support its implementation into action, it is recommended to set up coaching sessions once school begins.
Format: 6 x 45-min sessions
