Critical thinking skills necessary for success in reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and standardized tests are taught and practiced in second grade. The engaging, highly-effective practice sessions are developmentally sequenced. Each skill is presented first in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form and then in the abstract verbal form. Students also learn essential academic vocabulary, concepts, and abilities as they analyze relationships between objects, between words, and between objects and words by:

  • Observing, recognizing, and describing characteristics
  • Distinguishing similarities and differences
  • Identifying and completing sequences, classifications, and analogies

These processes help students develop superior thinking and communication skills that lead to more in-depth content learning in all subjects.

“Both my kids have been a part of her Math and ELA sessions and we are very satisfied with the progress our kids have made due to her coaching.   We like the fact that she is very organized and structured in her curriculum, stays on top of things and more importantly she is very kind and patient with the kids.
 She does take the time to provide feedback and addresses any gaps promptly.  Kids are in good hands when you send them to Praveena.”
