GT Prep courses offered on session (2-week) basis
These classes cover the major concepts taught in school, as well as a number of topics that have not received adequate attention in the regular school curriculum. This will lay an extremely strong foundation to allow the students to excel in their academic endeavors.
Math: These classes will cover numerous math topics in contests or assessment tests. Students will learn problem solving techniques and critical reasoning skills necessary for the math problems on the test. In addition, quantitative reasoning (CogAT format) is also included.
Vocab/Reading: Sentence completion, analogies, and classification will be covered. These problems test a student's vocabulary, critical thinking, and facility with the English language. This may be the most challenging battery for those who are stronger in math and visualization. Students will progress through 4 levels of vocabulary (4 sessions) while learning important reading comprehension skills. In addition, verbal reasoning (CogAT format) is also included.
Writing/Grammar: Creative writing builds on writing and language arts skills that students acquire throughout their school years. Students are encouraged to develop their own “voice” by exploring various genres of writing including short stories, mysteries, poetry, and scriptwriting, among others.
Quiz: Students will be given short quizzes on daily basis. The questions on the quiz cover the topics taught in the previous class. Parents are advised to keep posted about these quiz scores since they are an effective way of making sure that students are absorbing the information presented in class and benefiting from it.
Exam: They will be offered test on each subject (math, reading, writing) once a week. Exam review will bring them back to the test situation and face their errors/deficiencies. They need to learn how to fix them, psychologically/mentally, in order to improve their test performance.Please contact Dr. Li for questions/inquires.
