1-on-1 Bootcamps™ are an excellent way to provide your child with the individualized support of one-on-one tutoring within the structured environments of one of our offices. It is one of our most budget-friendly options, saving families up to 30% compared to our general tutoring, and includes many of our proven test preparation books.
These sessions begin with an initial diagnostic, so that our Curriculum Team can create customized session content. Session reports and preparation books are also included in the Bootcamp™, so parents can support their child’s learning at home.
This one-of-a-kind program is offered in-office only for students ages 3-5, who are looking to begin early preparation for the Gifted and Talented, Stanford Binet, and other Private School entrance exams. Rather than diving right into the content that is seen on the exams, one-on-one Skill Builder sessions help give children a strong foundation to better understand how to approach actual test questions. Many children have not been exposed to the rigor and difficulty of these exam questions, so having a strong foundation will help them to excel even more.
We provide both 1:1 and small play group options to prepare students for their private school admissions visit. The purpose of the Bright Kids Private School Admissions and Interview Evaluation is to assess a student's general skills in a wide variety of contexts, and touches upon content areas covered in formal and informal school interviews.
The Bright Kids Private School 1:1 Tutoring program is meant to help students build the various skills they will need to do well during the evaluation process. This program exposes your child to all the activities they might encounter during the admissions process; sessions utilize a variety of educational games, puzzles, and manipulatives to target these key skills in a fun and engaging way.
This program focuses on foundational skills that students need to excel in Kindergarten. Designed for students ages 3.5-4.5, this program focuses on concepts such as verbal skills, comprehension skills, and basic math concepts, to ensure that your child is not behind when entering this critical year of school.
