English Language Fluency Acquisition Program (ELFAP)

Oak Valley Community Center

1405 West F Street, Suite A, Oakdale, CA

2/23 - 4/13

GRADE LEVEL: 5th to 8th

Students will develop English acquisition with a combination of the following:

- Low-stress environment for language performance

- Physical involvement with language

- A large amount of interaction with students

- Small group reading instruction

- Whole group reading instruction

- Use of multiple mediums to present information

Expected Outcomes: 

At least 50% of the participating pupils will improve their scores by one letter grade. It is only natural to ask how is the increase measured and what is the ‘test’ for this measure. The assessment will be a multipronged approach as the fluency in Language - unlike progress in mathematics - has several modalities as the communication is between the Speaker and the Listener.

Prepping for SAT is like prepping for YOUR SPORTS TEAMS:

SAT is no different. It is a different kind of “remembering and problem

solving” than studying for an A in a math class.

Knowing is not enough!

Getting the correct answer is not enough!

You have not only to get it right but get the correct answer figured even as you read the question. SPEED and ACCURACY are KEY!

That is what this SAT Prep will give you.

Speed and Accuracy

It will show you the path…

It will teach you tips and techniques on the SAT Math…

Not just that … it will teach you WHAT TO DO AND WHAT NOT TO DO

WHEN TAKING THE TEST. You need that edge to maximize your score!

Hands-on Algebra: Demystifying Abstract Concepts

Oak Valley Community Center

1405 West F Street, Suite A, Oakdale, CA

7/8, 9, 10, 11 & 12

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Fee: $300, 15 hours of intensive coaching & includes supplies

GRADE LEVEL: 6th to 9th

The goal of the course is to create a "Can do!" feeling about Algebra. Algebra becomes doable when the first exposure to Algebraic Thinking is slow, deliberate and engaging. Children are never deterred by the challenges in learning -on the contrary, they thrive on it- but are disillusioned when it is hard to make out and inexplicable. Algebra is a language and if introduced and taught the way one learns a language, the learning will be self-assured. no better way to do it than using manipulatives that they can see, touch and manipulate. Just like the "Transformers" that can be manipulated to transform from car to person to plane and more, the tools in this Hands-on Algebra can be manipulated to understand the equations, inequalities and more. The sessions will be engaging and the activities will build their competence and confidence in Algebra.


The course will be led by Dr. Viji Sundar, Professor of Mathematics, who is an advocate for equity in the classroom. She firmly believes that all children can have algebra competence.
