Elementary Foundations


Fun and educational, these foundational classes are designed to help students learn the basics in a classroom setting utilizing a unit study approach and excellent literature selections. Tutor will review, refresh and reinforce the basic elementary school skills your student needs to be prepared for higher learning. 

Dependent on the age level, age appropriate activities will include:

intro to world cultures
basic grammar & phonics
elementary science & logic
introductory & basic math skills 

This class will also help to fill in the gaps through group games, projects and enrichment activities. A great intro for students who are reluctant about a classroom experience as well as a beneficial for the more enthusiastic student who loves to be hands-on, this class is designed to engage and excite learning in elementary students. Minimal homework assigned.

“I have taught school for 10 years and everyday my passion grows to work with children and their great minds.  I am a hands-on teacher as I believe that living through the subject being taught will keep the students both interested and curious which will create great retention of knowledge. When I am not teaching children, I am teaching aerobics at Lifetime Fitness and hanging out with my beautiful family. I am married to a wonderful man and together we have 4 teenagers which keeps life very fun and exciting ! I am very blessed by my tutor position here at Community. Have your child come see what it's all about!
