In high school, students often face higher level course work that can be extremely confusing without proper support. Subjects like trigonometry, chemistry or physics can frustrate even the most diligent student, which is why we stress developing individualized approaches and tools, like our shadow classes, specifically designed for high school students.
High school also requires much more of a student’s time. Our flexible scheduling becomes that much more important to students who have to juggle school work with extracurricular activities, a social life, and sometimes even a job.
High school is also the time students have to seriously think about college, which is why we offer SAT prep and college counseling. Having been there before and making it their business to keep up with new developments in higher education, our teachers are the perfect guides for our students.
C2 helps our students build the requisite verbal tools to handle complex readings, recognize advanced literary themes and thoughtfully express their opinions in writing. We also gear our vocabulary and other exercises toward improving SAT performance.
C2’s expert tutors offer instruction in advanced math courses, such as algebra, algebra II, trigonometry, geometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and statistics. We seek to illuminate concepts through detailed explanations, guided practice and supplemental exercises.
C2 helps our students thoughtfully express their ideas in writing. Through text analysis, logically thinking through arguments and careful organization, C2 ensures that students become clear and concise writers.
Middle school can be a challenging period as students must synthesize fundamentals and engage in more sophisticated course work. As students mature, their schedule and class work will also invariably become increasingly complex. Good study habits are, therefore, crucial to your child’s academic success.
Luckily, middle school years also present some of the most fertile time for students to develop lifelong interests and positive study habits. With this in mind, C2 works with middle school students by constructing personal study plans that help strengthen their understanding and ability to become independent learners.
C2 builds upon and expands children’s comprehension abilities. Our teachers promote strong vocabulary skills and advanced literary analysis. Students learn how to apply critical reading and inferential techniques to a variety of subjects, including social studies, the sciences and language arts.
C2 develops your child’s understanding of pre-algebraic concepts. Your child will learn how to manipulate arithmetic properties involving integers, fractions, decimals, and percentages. Our excellent tutors will show your child how to integrate these skills when writing equations, translating words into mathematical expressions and finally tackling multi-step problems.
Writing is an invaluable communication skill necessary for many of your child’s courses. C2 offers writing programs that explain the process of crafting and polishing an effective essay. Students learn to brainstorm and outline ideas, develop thesis statements and supporting paragraphs and finally revise and edit their work.
No matter what subject a student is struggling with, C2 is here to pave the way to success. We also recommend foundational work in three core areas that can help students excel in multiple subjects: math, reading and writing.
These are the formative years of your child’s academic future. With C2 as part of your team, you can help ensure that the fundamentals of reading, writing, and arithmetic are mastered.
In addition to C2’s academic tutoring programs, we also instill in your child strong study habits that will ensure success now and in the years to come. Your child will learn the importance of organization, time management, and effective note-taking.
C2’s elementary reading instruction is comprised of units that focus on recognizing phonics, building vocabulary and improving comprehension. As your child acquires these necessary verbal skills, C2’s programs will shift to incorporate more critical and context-based strategies.
Galileo once wrote that the secrets of the universe are written in the language of mathematics. At C2, we think anyone who finds math dull, tedious or way too difficult just hasn’t found the right teacher yet. Having a strong foundation in math is critical for higher education in any field – not to mention surviving and excelling in life after graduation.
C2 strengthens your child’s understanding of the fundamentals of arithmetic step by step. Basic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are mastered before being applied to more difficult concepts such as: fractions, word problems, tables, and graphs.
A wag once said that writing well means never having to say, “I guess you had to be there.” Good writing is all about telling a story well, and telling it in a way that not only informs the reader, but compels them to action. At C2 we know there’s only one way to become a good writer, and that’s to write. We work with our students to help them build their confidence and find their own literary voice.
C2 improves your child’s writing through rigorous exercises in penmanship, spelling, grammar, and composition. Once your child has grasped the mechanics of writing, he or she will start writing stronger sentences, which are the cornerstone for constructing well-developed paragraphs.
