Reading Comprehension program is a self-paced program for students in 2nd grade and
up and is structured with extensive work in English vocabulary, grammar, language
arts, reading comprehension, and OCCT test taking skills.
The Gideon math program is a return to the classical way of achieving mastery of
calculation skills. It accomplishes this using daily, disciplined practice with pencil,
paper, and the finest computer of all, the human brain.
WELCOME to Gideon Math & Reading Center. We provide an accelerated, supplemental
after-school program in reading and math designed to provide mastery learning in
both math and reading comprehension. We have combined working in an individualized,
self-paced program with the goal of our students working and staying well above grade
level. Building confidence and developing focus step-by-step, Gideon centers create
a solid foundation for all children.
After your child's starting point is determined, she will attend the center once
or twice a week for class and take work to be completed at home, much like practicing
a sport or instrument. A few minutes of disciplined study each day really pays off.
Our goal is to develop independent learning skills in preparation for middle school
and high school. This preparation starts with showing the child the possibilities
for obtaining academic success. Our purpose is to provide children of all abilities
the opportunity to attain proficiency and confidence in math and reading.
Remember that Gideon Math and Reading is not just for children who struggle in school.
Many students who attend our centers are already at the top of their class. Gideon
is a place for those achievers to excel even more. Advancing to above grade level
work is quite common at our Gideon center.
Parental involvement is essential for success in Gideon. Children need encouragement
at home to make sure the work is completed. Together we can all help your children
get to the top of their class.
