SUMMER PROGRAMS: PRIVATE TUTORING AND ENRICHMENT

CLASSES

Low student/tutor ratio: Classes will be small group (2-10 students) in order to ensure personalized programs.

Convenience: Citywide classes offered 7 days/week during days and evenings. You choose the schedule and location! We will come toward you!

Private Tutoring: In addition to group classes, private tutoring is also available in all subjects for all ages ($45/hour). All classes may be taken as private sessions.

Classes are split into 2 sessions (Summer Sessions I and II) and offered in short time periods (5 days each) so as not to interrupt family vacations, camps, etc.

SAT PREPARATION

The success of our SAT/PSAT prep program has established this class as a must-have for college-bound students. Raising scores up to 250 points and helping students score nearly perfect scores, our program assists students in achieving their academic goals. This class completely covers all sections of the exam. Students will learn techniques and strategies to find the answers when they have no idea what to do. The SAT prep coach will personalize the structured program to fit the needs of each member of this semi-private class (maximum 10 students).

With the SAT format change in March 2005, students now face a much more difficult exam, complete with essay writing, algebra 2, and trigonometry. Now students’ collegiate futures partially depend on how well they write, something never seen on the basic SAT before. This class will teach our time proven strategies and methods, as well as a variety of new techniques that cover every aspect of this new test. Jump ahead of the crowd and know the test inside and out before you take it! Choose your own dates, times, & location!

MIDDLE SCHOOL: SAT PREPARATION

Would you like your child to be one of those students whom you read about in the newspapers because they scored a perfect score on the SAT? The secret is to begin practicing now. Time and time again we have seen our students who practiced extensively during our SAT prep class be awarded the highest of scores on the SAT. What you may not realize is that your child can do this, too, if he/she simply begins practicing at such a young age that by the time he/she takes the SAT in high school, it has become a simple habit. It is a proven fact that the more one practices this exam, the better one scores.

Middle school students are at an advantage with the SAT essay because they have the luxury of learning and perfecting their writing skills long before they will write for the SAT essay exam. As practice truly does make perfect, these techniques will come in handy for not only SAT, but for all classes as well. The verbal portion of the SAT is graded partially on a subjective grading system, as now essay writing has been added and people (not computers) will be grading that part of the exam. Who is to say that one grader won’t have a differing opinion from the next? Does your child’s SAT score depend upon which essay grader you have? The best defense is to simply develop solid writing skills that will be approved by any type of quality grader. Developed by Educational Advantage Director, Deborah Wallack (MA and Ph.D. studies in English), this writing class will teach and sharpen all writing skills and levels specifically for this exam.

MATH  CLASSES

These classes are perfect for those who wish to quickly brush up or fill in the gaps of a previous math level—or—for those students planning to work ahead & stay one step ahead of their school math class. Session I is the first half of the regular Educational Advantage program for that math level; while Session II picks up where Session I left off. Students will learn the essentials of that math level, & will be taught in a small group setting by an Educational Advantage math coach. Participants will be grouped according to grade levels (middle school or high school). Students are encouraged to ask questions regarding their own school math classes.
