We look forward to helping your child!


OUR SUMMER 2020 FORMAT
  • We offer three  sessions, each running two weeks, Monday-Friday
    • June 29-July 11
    • July 13-July 24 
    • July 27-August 7
  • Each session has three clinic time slots: 
    • 9:00-10:30 
    • 11:00-12:30 
    • 1:00-2:30
                So over a two-week session, one clinic will total 15 hours.
  • Each clinic time slot can host two clinics, since Christine can host one and Paul can host the other. So that means any one session can run 6 individual clinics for two weeks--two at 9, two at 10:30, and  two at 1:00.
  • The clinic focus for Paul or Christine for any one time slot will depend on who signs up and what they request from the following options. Only one clinic focus can be covered by Paul or Christine during any one time slot: 
    • Math Intensive
    • Word and Sentence Intensive
    • Reading and Writing 1
    • Reading and Writing 2
    • Reading and Writing 3
    • SSAT Test Intensive
  • Any clinic can work with anywhere from 1-3 students.
  • Time slots and clinic focuses will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. For example, if a family chooses a 9:00-10:30 slot for Math Intensive with just their child, that slot will be taken for that purpose. If, however, they choose that slot but are open to 1-2 more kids, we will add them if other families wish to.
  • We will alert families to any apps needed for any clinic, and will provide any needed online materials and pdfs.
  • All clinics will incorporate one 10-15 minute break, to keep up attention, allow needed rest, and minimize screen burnout.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND: 

While Paul and Christine could be running clinics at the same time, the clinics can have the same or different focus and the same or different number of students.  It depends on what the individual families choose!

 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.
____________________________________________________________________________

For students entering 5th - 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
