Welcome to Star Learning
STAR Learning advancement and tutoring programs aim at identifying students’ unique needs as they build on individual strengths. The programs begin with a preliminary standardized diagnostic assessment that gives feedback about students’ mastery level, unique weaknesses and strengths; and offers a prescription personalized for the student. We provide a variety of quality rigorous curriculum with rich materials and worksheets that will best fit the personalized learning plan. Students are given frequent additional diagnostic and benchmark tests to monitor their academic progress. STAR Learning programs are available in either self-paced or small group (maximum 4 students) setting for all students at K-12. Some programs for Gifted and Talented, and SAT/ACT courses are also offered in small classroom setting.
