Small-Group Classes

The Hill Center is pleased to offer small-group tutoring classes in a range of subject areas. All listed classes occur at The Hill Center (3200 Pickett Road, Durham), and students do not need a formal LD/ADHD diagnosis to participate in tutoring services.

 

We are currently offering classes in the areas of reading, writing, math, and executive function: study skills. See below for available options and the link to apply. Once an application is received and if space remains in a class, the Tutoring program will email an enrollment link. Families will need to create an account or login to TADS, an online management system, and select to enroll in a RAP, Write, Math, and/or Study Skills class. An initial payment (see below for specific rates per class) will be required at enrollment, along with a $10 class enrollment fee for the 2018-19 year.

HillRAP (Reading Achievement Program)

 

HillRAP supports students experiencing reading challenges through multisensory, phonics-based instruction.  Modeled after The Hill Center's school and summer programs and based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, the class provides individualized instruction in a small-group environment with a maximum 4:1 student-teacher ratio. Through initial and ongoing assessments, specific target skills are identified for each child with instruction focused on teaching reading fundamentals through components such as phonological awareness, word attack, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Progress updates and a parent conference are provided during the class.

 

(Enrolling for a class commits a family to paying for the full offering, or a prorated amount based on the number of remaining classes at the time of enrollment. Classes will remain open until all four spots are filled as the individualized nature of the HillRAP methodology allows for students to begin instruction at any time.)

HillMath

 

HillMath provides an individualized, multisensory approach to teaching mathematics for students experiencing challenges in this subject area. The class utilizes the same methodology and 4:1 student-teacher ratio as The Hill Center's school and summer programs, providing targeted instruction to meet each child's needs. Through initial and ongoing assessments, instruction focuses on increasing fluency, building number sense, reviewing previously learned skills, learning problem solving strategies, and building new curricular skills. Instruction follows a sequential progression of skills, and tutors are able to provide immediate feedback and teach learning strategies to support mathematical growth.  Progress updates and a parent conference are provided during the class.

Executive Function: Study Skills

Hill's Executive Function: Study Skills classes introduce students to proven strategies that support increased success with the four executive function domains: preparedness, initiative, focus, and specific learning skills. Students are taught a variety of strategies related to organization, following directions, notetaking, test prep, self-advocacy, goal setting, etc. As each strategy is introduced, students learn and practice the skill, creating a reference binder of strategies and tips accumulated throughout sessions. Two class models are available for study skills. The 8-session class meets one time per week and focuses on teaching study skills strategies and practicing them with predetermined activities; it has a class maximum of 8 students. The 16-session class meets two times per week and combines instruction on strategies with individualized support related to current student work, providing an opportunity for students to apply newly learned executive function skills to their work with the support of a trained coach; this class has a maximum of 4 students.

 

(These classes requires a minimum of two enrolled students to be held.)
