  • ivyGOAL reading camps help students read efficiently and make good decisions when answering questions. Reading comprehension involves more than simply understanding the text. In this camp, students will learn the following skills: critical reading, speed reading, process of elimination and decision making. 
  • ivyGOAL writing camps teach students how to brainstorm, outline, draft and publish essays. We teach the fundamentals of grammar and essay skills in addition to creative expression. 
  • ​ivyGOAL Problem Solving camps teach students how to solve word problems effectively. Problem solving is challenging for students because it requires two high level skills (analyzing problems and setting up math expressions) in addition to calculation. This camp will focus on four critical problem solving skills: key info identification, translation into math expressions, divide & conquer and draw it out.
