Math

Our math program is customized to each student’s specific needs based on the results of our MCVS skills assessment. Prior to the start of class, students complete a diagnostic at home from which we develop practice materials based on their mistakes. During each session students work on these needs based materials with assistance from our team (max ratio of 6:1). Additional practice problems will be provided as required; we will complete as much work as possible during the allocated time.

Please note. Each student will have a customized program based upon the results of their skills assessment. During each session they will work to complete this customized program. If they have time to complete their program they be provided with additional practice problems. Each session will be unique as they are based on individual student progression and needs.
