Read / Write & Math

Read/Write & Math Fall 2020 Programs

For children struggling to learn literacy or math skills, Read/Write & Math Programs offer evidence-based instruction customized to each student's needs offered in a one-to-one setting. Programs range in intensity from 30 minutes per day to 3 hours per day. The Instructors will engage in formative assessment as they work with the student and provide a summary report to you at the end of the program.

We are offering options for both in-person and online programming this Fall:

Online programs will be delivered via Zoom (FAQs for online delivery).

In-person programs: will be delivered onsite at Foothills Academy.  Masks are mandatory in the common areas of the building and there is frequent cleaning throughout the building.  Many of the instructional rooms are small, so masks must remain on until the learner and the Instructor are seated on opposite sides of the clear barrier.
