OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY--Success comes from within


A guiding principle of our test preparation and academic enrichment classes is that a student truly becomes the most successful when he or she is internally motivated and has learned how to create their own success.

Rather than simply teach subjects or tell students the answers, our instructors are experts in having their students derive the answers for themselves. To do this, our curriculum and instructional methodology focuses on fostering critical thinking skills, providing students with proven strategies and techniques for success, and imparting the motivation needed for our students to truly improve. Moreover, our teachers know how to engage with today's students, and they leverage their experience to make the classroom environment rigorous, productive, and most importantly, fun!
