11 Global Who are the instructors?

 

Our team of dedicated and highly qualified Eye Level instructors posses a passion for teaching children and are well-trained to assess the needs of our students and provide proper guidance. Our professional teachers are also trained by Eye Level to fully understand the Eye Level philosophy; they further appreciate and agree with our principles.

10 Global Are there teaching tools in the Eye Level English program as well?

 

The Eye Level English program incorporates several teaching tools into daily learning in our centers. The Active Listening program allows students to listen to pronunciations of words, short stories, and assists them in expanding their vocabulary. Eye Level Flash Cards help children from Preschool to 2nd grade with the acquisition of the alphabet, numbers, rimes, digraphs, vocabulary, as well as beginning, medial, and ending sounds.

9 Global What is “language arts”?

 

According to the American National Council of Teachers of English, the five strands of the Language arts are reading, speaking, writing, listening, and viewing (visual literacy).

8 Global What’s the background of the Eye Level English curriculum? Who are the developers of the program?

 

The Eye Level English program is based on the USDOE(United States Department of Education) curriculum standards & NCTE (The US-based National Council of Teachers of English). The program was created by Dr. Concepcion Valadez (UCLA) and approximately 30 LAUSD(Los Angeles Unified School District) school teachers. Later, Professor Melanie Procter and native writers/editors helped create the Eye Level English  Workbooks.

7 Global How closely are we staying to the Eye Level philosophy of “eye-level” with regards to the Eye Level English program?

 

The Eye Level English program directly follows the ‘eye-level’ philosophy. Like found in Eye Level Math, a child’s starting point is determined by the results of a diagnostic test and an individualized program is then set up based on those results. Students learn through a small-step approach similarly found within the Eye Level Math Program.

6 Global What does the Eye Level English Program focus on?
​The Goal of Eye Level English is to guide students to master English language skillwhile enhancing the four fundamental skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Various themes and diverse strategies will motivate students, nurture study habits, and develop language capabilities, which are sure to be the basis of lifetime learning. Eye Level English endows students' confidence in studying English through systematic language acquisition, reading comprehension practice and thereby improving critical thinking and comprehensive skills.
5 Global Who is Eye Level Math for?

 

Eye Level Math offers a curriculum to meet the needs of pre-school students up through middle school students.

4 Global Where should students start?

 

Your child begins by taking an Eye Level diagnostic test so that we can access strengths and specific needs. Based on the test results, we then develop a customized program that incorporates our workbooks and Teaching Tools. Eye Level Math is designed to help students improve their mathematical thinking and problem solving skills by starting them at the most comfortable and appropriate level. While working with Eye Level, students will master concepts at every level as they progress through our curriculum. Gradually, students' mathematical abilities increase and, in turn, inspire an interest in solving novel problems. Along these pathways, students encounter a pattern of intensive study combined with light-hearted activities, reviews, and self-assessments. Success gives rise to confidence, and the Eye Level Math program facilitates success by alternating the introduction of new concepts with intensive practice in application of those concepts.

3 Global Does Eye Level Math correspond with school curricula?

 

Despite regional differences in the mathematical curricula around the world, there exists a high degree of general correlation. The global curriculum covers numbers, measurement, algebra, statistics, problem-solving and reasoning. The Eye Level Math materials are synchronized with the Global Math curricula such that they nurture reasoning and problem solving skills as recommended by the U.S. National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
