• Writing skills

• Grammar

• Vocabulary

• Critical Reading


Our basic literacy program is reading and writing, using the Laubach Way to Reading series. Students begin writing letters, words, phrase, and progress to sentences and paragraphs at their own rate of learning.  Once our students are able to complete the Laubach set of books, we offer a more comprehensive program called Challenger that continues with basic reading skills, but also helps the student work on building better sentences, and focuses more on reading comprehension skills. Challenger Books have a Writing Book for each level.  Learners move at their own rate and have individual attention throughout the tutoring process.

We offer one on one tutoring or family/friends small groups of 3 or less to improve language listening, conversation, reading, and writing skills.  The Laubach Way to English and Challenger Reading programs are the programs that are used to help our Learners.  We also offer a variety of other ESL learning materials.  Step Forward Books are used for learning English conversation, along with English phrase books.  There are Citizenship: Passing the Test materials to help Learners practice for the Citizenship Test.


Basic Math

Students can study all levels of Math, beginning with counting, addition, subtraction, fractions, and up through geometry.  Breakthrough to Math is the series of books that we use to tutor students  starting at their level. Many people need math for work or to take a test for work promotions. HiSet students often ask for addtional help in math.
