• Writing skills

• Grammar

• Vocabulary

• Critical Reading


Our basic literacy program contains 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 and advance to paragraphs and essays.

We offer one on one tutoring or family/friends small group tutoring of 3 or less people 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.

Our newest set of books are the English, No Problem books.  There are Citizenship: Passing the Test materials to help Learners practice for the Citizenship Test. Students are also encouraged to share their questions concerning obstacles they have experienced in their daily life due to English difficulties. Possible solutions can be discussed, such as reading the menu or talking to the doctor.


Basic Math Skills Tutoring

Students can study all levels of Math, beginning with understanding number concepts, counting, addition, subtraction, fractions, and up through geometry.  Students are given a short assessment to help find the starting level that is best for them. 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. Math in every day life, such as visiting the store or managing personal finances is very important.
