Eye Level begins with our core concept having every child believe, “I am the key.” Through our curriculum, the student follows a step-by-step process that allows him or her to become a confident, self-directed learner. The student learns and masters each concept through an individually tailored experience – not by pure repetition or memorization, but by focusing on developing basic skills and the ability to think critically. We also strive to meet and coach the child on his or her own level. This process is aided by our low teacher-to-student ratio, which allows for a balance of independent student and one-on-one academic coaching.Eye Level instructors encourage the development of self-directed learning by setting goals with students, establishing individualized lesson plans, adjusting those plans when appropriate, and providing routine academic coaching. Self-directed learning ability develops within a student over the course of months, not just a few weeks, so the longer the student is enrolled in Eye Level, the stronger his or her self-directed learning skills will become.
