Summer Classes

Integrated 2 Preview: June 14th – July 9th, 2021.  Mon/Wed/Fri at  11:30 am Minimum of 3 students, maximum of 5. (full…email for waitlist or until I open up a new section) $420 for 12 sessions (normally $720 for a 1-on-1 rate), due June 7th, no refunds for missed sessions (sessions can be recorded for future viewing). All sessions will be over Zoom for convenience so you can attend even if you’re travelling. Materials will be shared via Google Drive and will need to be printed out and put in a binder. All classes are one hour.

Integrated Math is notorious for teaching many things at one time. On any given problem set, a student can be tasked with showing mastery of up to 10 different concepts spanning Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics. In addition, there are no examples in the book of how to actually approach these concepts and, sometimes, not even direct instruction from teachers as many adopt a “self-discovery”/group-teach model of learning. I aim to take the guesswork out by directly teaching core concepts in a structured, easy-to-understand, replicable manner. This summer preview is by no means comprehensive but will equip incoming Int 2 students with a strong Algebraic foundation transferable not only to this class but all future math classes. Special emphasis will be placed on 5 ways to solve quadratics, Special Right Triangles, Basic Trigonometry progressions, working with different angles, and formatting dreaded proofs.  This is a fast-paced course, so your child should have earned a minimum of a B in Int 1; this is not a fill-in-the-gaps course. There is 1/2 hour to 1 hour of homework after each class. This is my third year teaching this course and all my former students have done extremely well after taking this course.

Integrated 3A Preview: June 14th – July 9th, Mon/Wed/Fri at 10 am or 5 pm (Both classes full…email for waitlist or until I open up a new section) . Minimum of 3 students, maximum of 5. $420 for 12 sessions (normally $720 for a 1-on-1 rate), due June 7th, no refunds for missed sessions (sessions can be recorded though). All sessions will be over Zoom for convenience so you can attend even if you’re travelling. Materials will be shared via Google Drive and will need to be printed out and put in a binder. All classes are one hour.

Every year like clockwork, I get inundated with new client requests when Int 3A students begin the Trigonometry Section in the Pre-Calculus textbook in January. I understand why…it’s HARD!  Let’s jump ahead of and prevent the frustration! I’ve designed a course using the scope and sequence and the actual problems they will be encountering in the beginning of the second semester. This class concentrates on the Precalculus section of the course. An ounce of prevention goes a loooong way to ensuring success throughout the year.  Plus…if your child can feel confident mastering the hardest part of the class ahead of time, the rest of the class should be smooth sailing.  I will teach this in my typical engaging, high-energy, relaxed and fun manner I’ve been know for.  You’ll also have access to worked out solutions for most of the material in the second semester. This is a fast-paced course, so your child should have earned a minimum of a B in Int 2; this is not a fill-in-the-gaps course. This is my third year teaching this course and all my former students have done extremely well after taking this course. There is 1/2 hour to 1 hour of homework after each class. Sign up. They won’t regret it.  =D

Calculus AB Preview: July 12th to August 6th, Mon/Wed/Fri at 10 am. 1 slot left. Taught by the amazing Justin on staff, Calculus Whiz and Teacher Extraordinaire. Minimum of 3 students, maximum of 5. $420 for 12 sessions (normally $720 for a 1-on-1 rate), due June 28th, no refunds for missed sessions (sessions can be recorded though). All sessions will be over Zoom for convenience so you can attend even if you’re travelling. Materials will be shared via Google Drive and will need to be printed out and put in a binder. All classes are one hour.
