Bridge the gap with our small-group Skill Booster classes. Each program is designed to enhance a student’s basic skills in the chosen subject, filling in gaps of learning that may exist. Each class is kept small, with only 4 students, creating a comfortable learning atmosphere with plenty of time for individual attention to build a child’s confidence and motivation to grow their skill sets.

Cost: $320 (8 Classes)
