Customized Small Group Tutoring

What is an Enrichment Centers' Small Group Tutoring Program?

Our Customized Small Group program allows parents to choose their child's curriculum, while placing them in a class of two to five, and sometimes one-on-one (our student-to-teacher ratio for the past several years has been 3:1). These programs are ideal for students who are not sufficiently challenged or engaged when in larger class settings. Small class size ensures that each child benefits from a customized learning plan which is fun and enriching.

After registering, we will ask you to complete a questionnaire. This will help us tailor our program to meet your child's needs. Small group customized programs have a student to teacher ratio of 3 to 1. You can combine any of our academic subjects with one of the following extracurricular classes: chess, cartooning, magic, anime, fashion design, drama, dance and more.
