    I would like to offer five classes of AP Chemistry, including Unit 1 Atomic structure and properties and Unit 2 Molecular and Ionic compound structure and properties which would cover about 14-18% of material required for the AP Chemistry exam. After taking this short introductory course students will be confident about the topics I teach, AP Chemistry exam format and test-taking techniques. AP Chemistry exam includes multiple-choice questions and free response questions. Students will apply their knowledge to solve the questions taken from real past AP Chemistry exams.

    After taking this course students will be confident about the topics I teach, AP Biology exam format and test-taking techniques.The course will include: Chemistry, Biochemistry, Cell structure, Cellular respiration, and Photosynthesis. Combined, these five topics make about half of the big idea 1 "Biological systems utilize free energy and molecular building blocks to grow, to reproduce and to maintain dynamic homeostasis" (one of four Big Ideas you will study in AP Bio), and are among most difficult topics in AP Biology course. AP Bio exam includes multiple-choice questions, numerical answer questions and free response questions. We will apply our knowledge to solve all types of questions taken from real past AP Biology exams.

    SAT Study 

    This  course will prepare the student for both the SAT and PSAT, so there is no age limit. The SAT is a vaulted exam but not impossible to master. The students will have weekly assignments, some writing, some reading, but a great deal of thinking. When the students return in the Fall, they will be advanced from their peers and ready for school

    Greek Mythology (grades 4-5)


    Greek mythology has had a tremendous influence on our culture. It appears in our language, our science, and our stories. References to Greek myths and the gods and goddesses who populate them act as a kind of cultural shorthand that all well-educated people are expected to know. We will explore what these stories have to teach us about good and evil, virtue and vice, human nature, family relationships, and why it’s always a good idea to listen to the instructions.

     Students will be asked to read, discuss, and write about the myths they read and to explore their ongoing importance in today’s world.

    Fri 6:00-7:00

    Intensive Writing 

    This course will have weekly writing assignments and some review of the basic tenets of writing. There also be advanced vocabulary studies and an expectation for the students to use the vocabulary in their writing. The advantages that summer study grants the student is that in the Fall, the student will be advanced from their peers, and prepared for the PSAT, SAT, ACT and other writing tests. All assignments submitted will be reviewed and returned promptly, for possible re-submission.



    Yes, yes and yes - Latin at School-Plus !


    The study of Latin is unlike any other language program. What school kid wouldn’t be fascinated by all-powerful emperors and fearless gladiators? And Trojan heroes fleeing their burning homeland to find the Promised Land, unknown Hesperia, which was foretold to rule the earth? And of course, what parent would not like his child to enjoy an ancient lore, and those stories that have struck our imaginations for two thousand years, and to learn to read and write the language of the aristocracy and the academic elite?

    On a more pragmatic side, the benefits of Latin are many: first, a student’s linguistic ability and vocabulary will increase naturally, as they will closely study English-Latin derivatives and grammatical structure – a topic not studied in any other language class. Second, the student will be able to take numerous prestigious and internationally recognized exams, administered for each level annually; namely, National Latin Exam, etymology, vocabulary, and mythology exams, AP Latin and Seal of Bi-literacy in Latin exams. Lastly, the student will be able to become a part of the thriving community – Junior Classical League – to participate in numerous competitions and conventions and to earn important credentials for their college application.
