Our Instruction Methods

What is Corrective Reading?

Corrective Reading targets children who are reading one or more years below grade level. Three goals of the program are:

  • increasing reading accuracy (decoding),
  • developing reading fluency, and
  • building reading comprehension. 

What is Spelling through Morphographs?

A morphograph is the smallest word part that has meaning.  They are prefixes, suffixes, and base or root words.  Morphographs are not syllables.  Syllables are units of sounds in words.  Spelling words based on their morphographs, not on syllables, has many advantages that teaches strategies to enable students to spell more efficiently.  It also sets the stage for vocabulary growth. 

Mathematics

Direct Instruction Math addresses the root cause of common misconceptions. It builds student knowledge and essential skills with in depth targeted instruction.

Before you enroll your child in our Center, we will conduct diagnostic testing to accurately pinpoint your child’s areas needed for improvement.  You will be provided with an Individualized Tutoring Plan (ITP) outlining the intervention plan to ensure a permanent solution to your child’s learning needs.  There is a $120.00 fee for this diagnostic testing.
