    Prep for Math Kangaroo Olympiad 2020 

    Friday  5:15-6:15 Start Jan 31st to March 13th. Course is 7 lessons. Cost $245

    There are many students who are doing well in math at their schools, yet do not succeed in Math Olympiads. This is often an unpleasant surprise and one asks, How could that happen? The answer is simple: students are not exposed to these kinds of problems in their maths lessons and do not know how to approach Olympiad word problems. To prepare for Kangaroo we are offering a crash course of 7 lessons to expose children to some of the problems of the kind they might encounter in an Olympiad. Kids will learn ways to approach these problems and be more confident about trying to solve them. We strongly believe that every kid will benefit by being exposed to these clever and challenging problems. Learning how to solve a problem and to understand its underlying mathematical concepts are the most important goals of mathematics education.

    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.

    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.
