Small group GPA management

Classes for school specific Math, English, and Science

Our Small Group GPA Management System features tutoring from expert instructors and a group of up to three students. Each student will have a bundle of tutoring hours that can be used at any time for tutoring sessions in the subjects of their choice. The flexibility offered by this program allows the student to pinpoint the most personally challenging school subjects and receive guidance on an individualized level not available in the school classroom.

The goal of our Small Group GPA Management System is to increase students’ academic confidence by enabling them to boost their GPA.

Throughout each session, the student will receive individual attention at his/her own pace. Whether they need extra help understanding the fundamentals of a specific subject or are just looking for a few solid review sessions before final exams, we’ll help the students develop study skills and discover their strengths while working to increase their academic performance.

TELOS Reading and Analysis program

This course is designed for 5-8th grade students.

Why do students struggle to improve in the SAT/ACT? Most likely reason? They never developed the ability to read quickly and accurately. At this point, many students cram in an effort to undo in a few months a lifetime of not reading. Such an effort often leads students, after taking practice test after practice test, to declare that it is impossible to improve in reading. Yet it is very possible. It just has to start early.

This program provides the most essential of all learning attributes: the ability to read critically and accurately. Not only do most students not read books in their spare time, they also often do not even read the literature assigned in school, opting instead to find summaries online. Therefore, when such students start preparing for the SAT/ACT and must read quickly and accurately, they find themselves woefully unprepared. Even more fundamentally, a deficit in reading creates difficulty in every subject, as students cannot effectively absorb information from their textbooks.

Rather than belatedly attempting to make up for a lifetime of non-reading, students in this program will establish the foundation which will serve as the cornerstone of every aspect of their learning.

* Literature—Poetry, Prose Fiction, and Philosophy. Through analyzing these texts, students will master key skills in fluency, vocabulary, critical reading and thinking.

* Evidence based reading -History, current issues, science. In addition to raising the students’ wordly awareness an analytical insight, the reasoning-based approach to reading will help student with building a foundation for SAT and ACT Test prep. This will facilitate a expedient preparation for the Reading portions of the standardized tests, a process which typically presents the most persistent obstacle for students trying to raise their scores.
