What is a Gifted & Talented Small Group Tutoring Program?

The Customized Small Group program allows you to choose your child's curriculum, placing them into smaller classes than our Enrichment Program. Often students work in classes of two to five, and sometimes even one-on-one with the teacher. Our student-to-teacher ratio for the past several years has been 1:3. A small class size ensures that each child receives a customized learning plan which is fun and enriching. These programs are ideal for students who want to work ahead, catch up, or learn new skills in a short time.

After registering, please complete our online questionnaire. This will help us tailor our program to meet your child's needs. Small group customized programs have a student to teacher ratio of 3 to 1. You can combine any of our academic subjects with one of the following extracurriculars: chess, cartooning, magic, anime, fashion design, drama, dance and more.

Below you will find descriptions for the following programs:

Academic Subjects Magic
