The lessons

Each lesson is 80 minutes long.  This allows time for teacher instruction and time for students to practice concepts they have been taught.  Classes consist of 4 students working on their individually produced programs.  Students are stimulated by their program.  We aim to correct any "potholes" in each students' knowledge and then we accelerate their learning.


The Atmosphere

We create an atmosphere at the learning centre where students are not afraid to ask questions.  We achieve this by providing an attractive and supportive environment.  Students are invited to call teachers by their first names.  This gives students an understanding we are working WITH them.  We treat mistakes as learning experiences.  Therefore, there is no embarrassment caused by trying or by asking questions.


Homework is a necessary component of learning.  It provides valuable follow-up, extension and reinforcement of the concepts taught.  Your child may be given an audio tape or worksheet to complete for homework.  It is best that a little of the homework is done each day, rather than crammed in the last minute.
