Being an adult isn’t easy, but it can be a little easier with some preparation. In this course we will be covering the topics most often cited by older adults as things they wish they had known, or things they think every young adult needs to know to be able to function effectively in the world.

Each class will be an interactive lecture based on the topic for that week. Eva Goldstein-Meola uses a PowerPoint presentation for visual reinforcement as well as videos to demonstrate concepts or complement information being presented.

Homework will be assigned to reenforce concepts learned during class. Expect one hour of homework weekly.

NOTE: Registration deadline is April 6, 2020.

Do you desire to become a stronger reader?
Are you ready to up-level your reading, writing, and thinking?
If you’re a parent, do you want these things for your learner?

In this class, we will definitely do all of this! We will celebrate our love of reading and work on our higher-level reading skills simultaneously. This class will be operated in a way that starts with basic comprehension skills, yet builds on several areas of critical reading skills so that multiple levels of readers can work together to improve their individual reading abilities- And YES, we will have FUN!

My aim is to identify and close the reading gaps in my students’ abilities. My private tutoring students generally improve one grade level in their reading level with just 10-12 hours of instruction, so I’m excited about this group format!

This course focuses on higher- level thinking and reading skills; this includes more inferencing, summarizing, drawing conclusions, etc. In addition, we will practice test taking skills such as finding evidence and rereading to gain clarity. Everything in this class aims to allow an opportunity for students to gain and grow healthy reading habits.

In this class, we will be learning growth-mindset and higher-order thinking/ literacy skills and will aim to provide a framework so that every student will end the course with a brighter spark for reading.

If you’re a parent, do you want these things for your learner?

In this class, we will definitely do all of this! We will celebrate our love of reading and work on our reading skills simultaneously. This class will be operated in a way that starts in the beginning, yet builds on several areas so that multiple levels of readers can work together to improve their individual reading abilities- And YES, we will have FUN!

My aim is to identify and close the reading gaps in my students’ abilities. My private tutoring students generally improve one grade level in their reading level with just 10-12 hours of instruction, so I’m excited about this group format!

This course focuses on the five components of reading that is differentiated for this age group. It is for readers who find reading to be more difficult than fun.

The primary skills include reviewing phonics, fluency, writing in response to reading, and comprehension.

***Students can take this class multiple times because it is different each time. I differentiate leering so that each student gets what he or she needs.

In this class, we will be learning literacy skills and will aim to provide a framework so that every student will end the course with a brighter spark for reading.
