New 4th Grade Teacher !
We are delighted to announce that Academie da Vinci has hired a Math and Science Teacher for 4th Grade. Mr. Kirby Hart will start on December 1, which is the first school day after the Thanksgiving vacation. Mr. Hart is well-qualified and very experienced.with more than 20 years of experience. He is especially excited about bringing a hand-on approach to teaching math and science. He will also be visiting the school next week to get more acquainted with the students.
We will hold a "meet the teacher" event for 4th grade parents to meet both Mrs. Hugan and Mr. Hart in December. Details to follow.
Thank you, Ms. Foran
The cost will be $20 for TWO 1 hour classes per week at our school (we hope to plan Tues/Thurs - 4th grade and Mon/Wed - 5th grade). 1 day per week is OK, but it is not recommended as students may not show as much progress. Please write "math tutoring" along with your child's grade, session, and days attending in the memo line on checks or money orders; cash cannot be accepted. For example, "math tutoring 4th grade Tues/Thurs". Payments must be made weekly on Thursday for Tuesday/Thursday session and Mondays for Monday/Wednesday session. The time will be 3:30-4:30 pm. Class size will be limited and registrations will be on a first come first served basis. Students must come to class ready to work on their math ! Attendance will be taken - no refunds will be given for non-attendance. We will not have tutoring on school holidays and we do plan to continue through to about May 1, 2015.
We have hired Mr. Bradford Tierno as our math tutor and classes will start on Thursday November 13 @ 3:30 pm. Mr. Tierno holds a Master's degree in Education and has completed advanced studies in Mathematics Education at Suffolk College, New York. His most recent experience is teaching Pre-algebra, Geometry and Algebra 1 at a private K-8 school in Arizona. He has tutored students from elementary school through to college level.
We are very pleased to be able to offer our students this great opportunity.
