Semi-private Tutorials ( 3-10 students in each class)

Classes are very small: the range is 3-10 (maximum) students. Students receive 16 hours of instruction. These classes are intensive and thorough. Students are assigned homework which is checked. Student progress is monitored carefully. Content: special attention is given to the reading, writing-language skills and mathematics portions of the SAT and PSAT and ACT as well as the English and Science parts of the ACT….plus the optional essay (SAT and ACT). The course includes a thorough review of math concepts, definitions, and skills. An individualized strategy is developed for each student. Effective reading techniques are taught. Semi-private classes also emphasize, grammar skills, essay writing, and confidence building. Please email Dr. Gagnon DIRECTLY at for fees and other details …or call (410)442-1600, extension 1.

Space is very limited, so please register early.
