Small Group

Small group instruction creates a classroom setting for students, which is familiar, while still allowing the tutor to scaffold, instruct and devote a considerable amount of personal attention to each student. The tutor and parents keep an ongoing dialogue and open communication in terms of what content is to be taught or reinforced. The cost for small group sessions are $35 per student, per group session. Students are provided with all materials by the studio. 

 

 

Writing Program

Students are writing more than ever across all subject areas. From elementary-age students to high school students, they are all expected to conduct research, use evidence to support a claim, and to recognize how an author implements literary devices and/or rhetorical devices to get his or her point across. At our studio, we model and teach students to succeed in all levels of writing.
