The Program 

We begin by testing your child to determine exactly where they need help.  From there, we provide you and your child with all of the math and reading work books you'll need at no extra cost.  Our standard program includes 2* instructional sessions per week and Gideon curriculum that your child will take home and complete on a daily basis. 

You will quickly see your child's math and reading skills improve as they develop a newfound joy of learning.  If they get stuck on a difficult concept, we will not move forward until they've mastered it and feel confident in their abilities. This is the defining difference between Gideon and the fast pace of our public school systems and even other supplemental education programs. 

*2 instructional sessions per week is the standard for in-person classes, which we don't currently offer. For more information on our current online classes, please see our Pricing Tab or the info. at the bottom of this page.

Math

 

The regimen for our math program includes:

  • 4 pages of computation per day

  • 1 page of math word problems per day

  • Oral facts practice 

  • Weekly assessment

The beauty of the Gideon program is that it can be tailored to fit your child's exact needs, meaning we can assign more or less work depending upon how quickly your child is progressing through the program.

Reading

 

Our reading program offers a similar daily regimen:

  • 4 pages of comprehension (we have children read aloud, a skill not often practiced in schools)

  • 2 pages of grammar exercises

  • Vocabulary and/or handwriting practice   

 

As previously mentioned, the amount of daily work can be adjusted to fit each learner's precise needs.

Private Tutoring
 

We offer private tutoring in several branches of mathematics including Algebra, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry.  We also offer private tutoring in Spanish.  Pricing varies by grade level and clients must pay for one month's sessions in advance. Once a regular tutorial time is chosen, we require 24 hours notice in advance of absence, otherwise the session is forfeit, and the payment is non-refundable. We will do our best to schedule a makeup tutorial session for your student in the case of an appropriate cancellation, but due to limited availability, we ask for minimal schedule-change requests. To book private tutoring with this location, please contact our owner/operator, Dayna Nardozza, by email, phone, or simply leave us a message here via the form on our contact tab.
