SAT Prep Class Available

FYI

From Stephanie Fowler –

She highly recommends this class.

8-WEEK SAT PREP SUMMER SESSION

Mary Trask and Betsy Rhatigan are holding an 8-week SAT Preparation Workshop in which students will learn tips and tricks to tackling the SAT and will work through practice tests in order to gain test confidence and improve scores.

Throughout the classes, practice tests will be reviewed to understand why correct answers are correct, and why incorrect answers are incorrect. Students will begin to see patterns and better understand both the questions asked and the answer options provided.

Each student will be assigned a personalized course of study through Khan Academy in order to independently practice for the test. The College Board and Kahn Academy have joined together to help students prepare for the SAT, and we will select specific sections for your student to work through in order to improve on areas of weakness. These assignments will be updated weekly.

SAT Prep Summer Session students will be invited at no additional cost to participate in College Admissions 101, an informational workshop providing an overview of the college admission process. Topics will include the five elements of a successful college application, top ten factors in an admission decision, timelines for testing and applying, and resources for the college search.

Spanish 1 Offered

Hello, everyone! My name is Jeanah Vernoy. On August 28, I would like to begin teaching a Spanish 1 class primarily for high school students. However, I am willing to consider any 7th graders that may be interested on a case by case basis. The class will be held at my home every Monday afternoon from 2 to 3:30. I am planning on focusing my time through the books concentrating on developing conversational skills. The monthly fee per student is $50. I am excited to have the opportunity to help your students come to love Spanish as much as I do. My prayer is that they will be able to use what they learn to impact a Spanish-speaking person they know for the kingdom of God. If you are interested, please contact me at 843-441-6328 or email me at laragirljlv@gmail.com.

Required Materials: Abeka’s Spanish 1 Curriculum
1. “Por Todo el Mundo” Student book 1A and 1B
2.Vocabulary Manual
3. Student test book

Does your student need Algebra 1?

From Charlotte Cushman – Algebra 1

Algebra 1 Class available ~ August 14th – April 30th – 34 weeks

Mondays 11 am – 1 pm ~ 3-5 lessons per week for a total of 120 lessons.

Cost is $60.00 per month August – April.

If you are interested contact me at charlottecushman@gmail.com.

Overview

The goal of this class is to give students confidence that they can do well in Algebra. I also want to make sure students don’t feel left behind in class. Although we work hard, we also have fun and I incorporate games and friendly competition into lessons. Also there is generally chocolate involved.

Teaching and Review of concepts

I explain the lesson and we will talk about it. I will show the students how to work out an example problem on the board. Then I will give them similar problems to work out on their own (each student has an individual wipe board).

Practice 

After each student demonstrates understanding, they will do practice problems. When each student can correctly do the practice problems, I have them do the problems from the lesson.

Standardized test practice

Class ends with standardized testing practice and practice problems and possibly chocolate.
