Eye Level begins with a free diagnostic assessment.
A student’s first step into the Eye Level program is the diagnostic assessment. The diagnostic test will provide insight into the student’s ability and learning needs. It is utilized to determine the best place to start the student in the Eye Level curriculum. The diagnostic assessment also gives the student and parent the opportunity to meet the teachers, see the center, and get an overall feel for the program. At Eye Level, we offer diagnostic assessments completely free of charge, with no obligation.
Curriculum and Booklets
We do not design a student’s learning plan based on their age or grade, but instead on their personal strengths and weaknesses. The diagnostic assessment will allow us to pick an initial starting point for your child. From there, your child will receive a new set of booklets each session.
For Eye Level Math, each session students receive two basic thinking math booklets, and one critical thinking math booklet. The basic thinking math booklets concentrate on skills such as counting numbers, arithmetic, measurement, and equations. The critical thinking math booklets concentrate on skills such as patterns and relationships, geometry, measurement, problem solving, and reasoning.
For Eye Level English, students receive two booklets a session. The two booklets have four corresponding lessons in them. The level book introduces the concepts and skills for the session, and the workbook provides more comprehensive exercises surrounding the lessons, including reading comprehension passages and writing prompts.
For homework, we ask that students complete the booklets given to them in class. While homework is not required, we recommend students complete their homework so that they can take advantage of the accelerated learning of Eye Level. If students complete their homework, they can cover about one year’s worth of material in half a year!
Depending on which program you sign your child up for, they will be coming to the center for 1-2 hours a week . If the student is in a two hour program, you can schedule your child for both hours in one day, or one hour one day and one hour another day.
Each center has different class times. For the class times for a specific center, go to the locations page. When a student is enrolled, they will have the same class time each week. If a student cannot make class one week, we offer makeup classes.
The children learn in small ratios, max 3:1 (or 2:1 for younger children). These ratios allow us to give your child the attention he/she need and deserves, while also promoting independent learning.
At Eye Level, we make sure that parents are always involved and informed about their child’s education with us. After each session, every session, the instructor will come out with the student and give an on-the-spot report of the child’s progress that day. The instructor can keep you up-to-date on your child’s strengths, weaknesses, and tell you how you can help your child further improve. The instructors are there to work with you to provide the best education for your child.
