IMPORTANT NOTICE

After reviewing the data, this course will only be offered as a SHADOW-CLASS.

This change has been implemented in light of overwhelming evidence that indicates a superior degree of success obtained by students enrolled in the SHADOW-CLASSES v/s the traditional tutorials.

SHADOW-CLASS QUICK DESCRIPTION:  

  • We make contact with the student’s classroom instructor in order to obtain pertinent course information to insure student success.
  • We work closely with the classroom instructor to provide sessions that will be relevant to current instruction.
  • We create a SHADOW-CLASS based on the states pacing guide.  This along with the partnerships developed with the classroom instructors is the key to student success.
