Overview

We want students to actively learn the author's intent, form their own opinions, speak in discussion, be comfortable giving presentations, and improve vocabulary and test-taking skills. 

Our Reading program is centered around Discussion Club, where students focus on reading narrative books and informative articles, showing textual evidence, and presenting their opinions. The program also focuses on vocabulary practice and test-prep.

Reading classes are split by students' grade level after taking an assessment. We offer discussion club for grades 3-10 and classes are split by reading comprehension level.

All classes explore grade-level academic vocabulary and take quizzes to assess their understanding. We understand how important it is for students to develop study habits to last them a lifetime. Our classes aim to supplement students' reading comprehension and speaking ability.

Classes are either in-person, hybrid, or online.
