  • Since we specialize in all areas of math, we can fill in any foundational holes that prevent the student from moving forward.  For example, success in Calculus requires a very strong Algebra, Trigonometry & Geometric foundation.  Since we specialize in all those areas, we recognize the problem immediately and provide a firm foundation so that the student may move forward in the current level of math.

**Every Concept & Problem mastered:

  • We use everyday examples to describe difficult scientific concepts

  • We teach terminology & concepts using everyday English and not advanced scientific jargon.

  • Students learn to love and appreciate science when they see it in their everyday lives.

  • Since we specialize in Science, Math & Writing - we teach students to recognize the connection between seemingly isolated topics and how to apply what they know from one class to the other.  Chemistry uses some concepts from Biology (Biochemistry).  Physics & Calculus have overlapping concepts but since they are taught in isolation and using different methods, many students do not recognize the connection. Instead of keeping the subjects completely isolated, we teach students to apply what they know to other areas.  We teach students how to verbalize concepts & questions and how to express thoughts or problem solving onto paper.
