After School Academic Enrichment Program

Homework help, Mandarin Chinese, and supplemental math and English practice are all included in our after school program tuition.  Your child may participate in all of these programs, or you may choose any combination.

Homework Help

Quiet class time is provided for students to work on their individual homework assignments.  Two staffs are available to answer questions and review completed homework.

Mandarin Chinese – 美洲华语 Mei Zhou Chinese

We teach simplified Mandarin Chinese.  Our goal for this program is to provide a lively and interesting Chinese learning environment for children and to stimulate their interest in studying Chinese.  We use Mei Zhou Chinese textbook volume 1-8 from MZHY Editors Group that compiles national standards on teaching foreign languages (5C) and US standards on foreign language assessment.  The textbooks focus on phonetics, vocabulary, situation-oriented communications and human sciences.

  • Volumes 1-2 introduce the basic knowledge of Chinese characters and culture.
  • Volumes 3-5 focus on strengthening the ability to read, make sentences and look for overall themes in reading materials.
  • Volumes 6-8 focus on building overall communication skills with topics in history, music, technology, medicine and other disciplines.

With simple words of the contents, students will learn Chinese language and culture easily.  After evaluating their Chinese knowledge, students will be placed in either a beginning, intermediate, or advanced class.

Mathematics (Math Drills) 

We use sets of math questions that help students improve their accuracy and speed. Routine practice and drilling following explicit teacher-directed instruction should help students become quick and accurate in solving basic operations, thereby becoming procedurally fluent. Becoming procedurally fluent in turn should help students by freeing up their cognitive capacities to solve more complex tasks. 

Mathematics (Word Problems) 

A word problem in math is a math questions written as one sentence or more that requires children to apply their math knowledge to a “real-life” scenario. This will enable children to become familiar with the vocabulary associated with mathematical symbols that are used to make sense of the word problem.

English (reading comprehension & grammar)

This program will enhance and expand language arts concepts taught during the school year.  We primarily use grade appropriate language worksheets from well-known publishers.  This will help your children to meet the state standards and challenge them to achieve higher levels.
