I am happy to share my thoughts on my son's experience with teacher Esther! One of the most significant improvements I've noticed is in my child's ability to write with a clear structure and organization. Before starting tutoring, my child often struggled to organize their thoughts and ideas effectively on paper. We highly recommend this writing program! - K's mom
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the class sizes?
We offer private, semi-private, and group classes for up to 4 participants.
What age group of childen do you teach?
We teach children from Kindergarten to 8th grade.
My child is learning English as a second language. Can he/she still enroll in your class?
Yes, of course! We welcome students of all levels and encourage your child to learn English through active engagement. We help your child improve their ability to speak their thoughts in front of other students, in addition to teaching phonics and grammar.
Do you have classes for homeschoolers?
Yes! Our curriculum is widely used for students from regular schools, charter schools, and homeschooling.
My beginning reader reads well by sight. Do I need a phonics program?
Yes, multiple research studies have shown that all students benefit from phonics instruction. These studies compared the progress of students instructed by sight methods to students instructed using phonics. Most phonics students made at least an additional grade level of growth when instructed with phonics. Understanding how phonemes are represented and how they relate to writing and reading is essential for advanced reading development.
Do you include book clubs in your sessions?
We do not specifically choose a book to read but our Language and Reading workbook covers poetry, articles, short stories, categorizing, parts of speech, sentence completion, clues and crosswords, book pages, weekly assessments, and other language concepts. Our teachers can also give you recommendations for books to read.
