PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE SEPARATE COURSE DESCRIPTIONS OUTLINE WHAT WE COVER IN THE CORE AREAS OF MATH, READING, WRITING, AND LANGUAGE ARTS.



 SSAT PREPARATORY CLINICS
 
For students entering 7th or 8th grades

Previous test scores and other academic input will produce individualized study
plans, with special attention paid to how best to take advantage of any accommodations and how best to shelter any vulnerabilities caused by learning and attention challenges. These considerations will guide one-on-one and small group instruction in subject matter
and test-taking strategies, to be followed with mini-tests and progress tracking.
A final mock exam will assess overall progress and provide suggestions for conti-
nued study.

THIS CLINIC IS NOT BEING OFFERED SUMMER 2021. SHOULD YOU WANT SPECIALIZED TEST PREP ASSISTANCE, PLEASE CONTACT US!

For students entering 6th - 12th grades

 Word & Sentence Intensives I & II 

Transitioning from Informal Speaking to Formal Writing

I. Starting the Transition

Students will learn to decode words for meaning versus sound, and
to monitor formal versus informal word choices. They will also learn
how to make clear, complete sentences, using punctuation and more advanced grammar.

II. Mastering the Transition

Students will build more advanced vocabulary through effective use 
of a college dictionary and thesaurus. They will also learn to link ideas within sentences and between sentences within one paragraph.

 Math Intensives 

Math fluency requires both understanding key concepts as well as applying them appropriately. This math sequence guides each student through the concepts, 
procedures and strategies that he or she needs to build success and confidence. 
The clinics are tailored to the individual needs of each student and provide 
assistance in mastering concrete and abstract problems.

I.    The Foundation | Math Facts and Beyond
II.   Breaking it Down | Fractions/Decimals/Percents
III.  Moving into Space | Geometry
IV.  What are the Chances? | Probability & Statistics
V.   Alphabet Math | Pre-Algebra
VI.  Finding the Unknown | Algebra Review/ Preview

For students entering 6th - 12th grades


 Reading & Writing IIExpository/Narrative           
(This class is open to 6
th & 8th grade students.)

Students will learn how to abstract out the structure of more complex expository texts, to develop effective summaries (Idea Maps)  and higher-level interpretations (Analysis Maps).

 Reading to Writing III
Expository/Narrative   
          (This class is open to 9th & 12th grade students.)

           Expository:
           Using clinic readings, students will learn how to take on primary sources and scholarly
           interpretations. Students will use their prior work as starting points for learning how to
           outline a more complex essay, and, as time allows,  how to draft and evaluate thesis,
           body, and conclusion paragraphs. They will also learn the protocols for effective use of
           quotations from their reading.
