Learn for Excellence:
for those who will go far.
About the Program
Core subjects: Mathematics and English (reading and writing).
These are the most important subjects for academic success and gaining admission to college.
All students, especially elementary to middle school, are expected to take both.
Other subject: We also offer Spanish. Foreign language is encouraged but not required.
Grade levels: Both math and reading programs are for grades 1-12. In math, we also offer AP calculus,
which is at the freshmen level in college. Spanish is from beginning to intermediate levels.
For more information on the subjects see the appropriate pages:

Curriculum: Our program is NOT dependent on any school curriculum. We have our own program,
and our own materials, which are MORE rigorous than in public or most private schools.
We help students with their school homework occasionally, but after participating in our program for a few months,
most students find their schoolwork to be quite easy.
Our program is excellent for home schooled students.
We are very much aware of the requirements for gaining admission to US universities,
and in fact our program is especially designed to meet or exceed these.
Teaching model. Our method is based on individual tutoring, which our experience shows to be far more effective
than the traditional classroom model used in schools. This is NOT intended as a something to be ADDED to school;
it stands ON ITS OWN. That is to say, if you bring your child to me for tutoring in math and reading,
I will teach him/her MORE efficiently and effectively than is done in school, so that you don't even need to send
your child to school for math and reading.
In our basic program, the students come into our learning center twice a week for one hour. They receive personal instruction,
and homeworks based on their own personal level. Students are expected to make progress,
but are allowed to do so at their own pace (within reason).
