Study Skills

The Study Skills class introduces students to proven strategies that support increased success with the four executive function domains: preparedness, initiative, focus, and specific learning skills. As each strategy is introduced, students learn and practice the skill, creating a reference book of all the strategies and tips accumulated throughout sessions. Although individual student needs are not evaluated and addressed in this class, students can get support to apply each strategy to their own school work as the class includes study skills content and study hall time. These classes require a minimum of two students and a maximum of eight students.

Hill Reading Achievement Program (HillRAP)

HillRAP offers individualized attention to students who are experiencing reading difficulties. HillRAP students are taught using a multisensory, systematic approach to reading. Students learn letter/sound "patterns" and the "rules of language" via phonological awareness and phonics instruction, which gives students the tools they need to decode previously unknown words. Instructional materials target specific phonetic patterns taught at each skill level, as well as vocabulary and reading comprehension. Students are pre-assessed at the beginning of tutoring so that instructors can target specific skills for each student. This class requires a minimum of two students and a maximum of four students.
