DUE TO COVID 19, all our classes are running online!
Q: What are your teachers’ qualifications?
A: All of our teachers are certified by each program they teach. This means that before they start this program, they will be certified for it! As far as background, all of our teachers are college graduates with extensive tutoring backgrounds, retired teachers, or Ivy League students. All of our instructors are also trained for students with ADD, ADHD, mild autism, and students having an IEP.
Q: What is your program overview?
A: We offer a wide range of programs that accommodate student needs. We have a number of courses set up for your student to get enrolled in. But, if your student is unique, we also offer the creation of a course, based on your student’s need. We recommend that you come into our center to get full details about our programs, accommodation, and pricing.
Q: What is different about your center, compared to other learning centers?
A: The difference with our center compared to others is both in our values, and our standards. We follow common core standards, meaning we are not just a tutoring center. We set standards for our students that must be met! We also offer small class sizes, which means one-on-one learning, and maximum student comfort/benefit. Our teachers give you weekly updates about your student’s progress, both verbally and in a progress note. All staff members maintain a friendly customer service relationship with you, meaning accommodating your concerns and requests. Finally, we accommodate students with ADD, ADHD, mild autism, and students with an IEP.
Q: Where is your center located?
A: Our exact address is 109 Lafayette Street, New York NY 10013, suite 805. We are located in the heart of Chinatown, next to many restaurants, supermarkets, and extremely close to public transportation. We are a two-minute walk from the 6 train, a five-minute walk from the N, Q, and R trains, and a 10 minute walk from the 1, 2, 3, A, and C trains. We are also a 10 minute walk from SoHo. Our convenient location makes it possible for you to drop your student off and go do errands. All of our courses are minimum one hour.
Q: What if my student has a learning disability?
A: Then we welcome you! We offer services for students with ADD, ADHD, mild autism, and students with an IEP. We first have an intervention with you and your student, to determine the student’s needs. Then we have them take a placement test, this way your student is placed in the right setting and course. We aim not to discourage any of our students, so we will not place them with students that are more advanced.
Q: What if my student is gifted/talented?
A: Then we welcome you! We have our gifted/talented students take a placement test to determine the best academic placement for them, so that they are not doing work that is too easy for them, and not doing work that is too advanced. We challenge these students for work in a higher grade level, and also critical thinking, which is very important for students like this. We will never place these students in classes in which are too easy for them, nor too advanced.
Q: What are your staff values?
Q: What are your teachers qualifications? work by a code: friendly/quality service, maximum accommodation, and unique teaching styles. We never hire staff members who we see as disrespectful, impolite, or ineffective. We value friendly/quality teachers, meaning all of our staff is committed to helping students academically grow. We value accommodation, because we know that each student is unique and no singular teaching style works for everyone.

Finally we value engaging classes, and quality service, making education with us fun, effective, and important.
