Sofia Frid Provides tutoring in Mathematics and Science.

Sofia is a highly experienced Physics teacher, who started working with our school two years ago and successfully tutors Mathematics. It includes remediation and enrichment.

In addition, she successfully increases students’ scores on ACT test in Mathematics and Science.

Josef works for Stella Academy starting the end of 2015. He is a senior in Illinois State University getting education as a Chemistry teacher.

Meanwhile, in Stella Academy, Jacob learns our Mathematics Program and is in a process of moving from assisting level to the level of an independent instructor in several areas of Vika-Math.

In addition, Jacob teaches English as a second language for our bilingual children.

Besides all of this, Jacob participates in creating science-curriculum for the new school year.

The class concentrates on developing understanding of main principles of geometry and fundamentals of drafting – orthogonal projections.

The class includes measurements and estimation. It also involves construction problems based on understanding symmetry and similarity.

Saturday 3:40 pm

Geometry Exploration prepares students to the challenges of High School Geometry. The class involves a lot of construction problems.

The students start with sketches of word problems and constructions, where they can use protractor, ruler, and compass. Later, the students learn to construct figures using only compass and straight edge.

This class runs without homework.

The program concentrates on teaching how to approach challenging word problems. Particularly, the students will learn how to

- use line-segment or/and box- models for visualizing word problems.
- create parameters and put them into formulas.
- deal with measuring units.
- rephrase word problems.

At the end of this class, the students will be able solve challenging multi-step word problems

Fluency with mental mathematics required in order to enter this class.

*Mental Math Intense *teaches mental math strategies in a fast pace manner.

Those strategies are now required by Common Core State Standards as part of early algebra, but they are not taught well in schools.

A benchmark for the program is Russian 3rd graders’ mental mathematics worksheets. It includes such problems as 17×7 or 95 over 19. The program is based on understanding number properties on the level of application rather than on “tricks” and memorization.

Young programmers create projects on Scratch in a friendly small group setting. While creating cartoon movies, the children learn to use functions, objects, …..

The children should bring their own laptops with the following requirements: …..

The price of a course – $20 per 1 hour lesson paid at the beginning of semester.

The child can miss 1 or 2 lessons per semester and get individual (15 min) or semiprivate (40 min) make-up tutoring instead of the missed lesson.

In case, a child misses more than 2 lessons per semester, money do not refund. Any extra lessons have to be paid in addition to basic fee.

Stella Academy has Chemistry class for 7th-9th graders who wants to be successful with high school Chemistry. The class combines rigorous studies with hands on fun environment.

The class run by a PhD in Chemistry with profound experience in Chemistry tutoring.

The class curriculum is designed to prepare students entering 4th grade to get a good grasp of fundamentals of Math and English at their grade level and beyond. The curriculum in most classes will be enhanced to meet the individual needs of class participants. Students will be placed into the program based on their skill level, to accommodate students of various levels, and to challenge more advanced students appropriately.

The program will include:

- Reading Comprehension
- Vocabulary
- Grammar
- Writing
- Math
