Grand Opening of Above Grade Level In-Home Tutoring Brings Education Solutions to Union County

Union County, NJ, Dec. 2, 2014 – Above Grade Level In-Home Tutoring announces its Grand Opening in Union County today. The internationally proven tutoring program brings 30 years of experience to the area, providing one-on-one, in-home professional tutoring in math, English and science, as well as SAT/PSAT/ACT prep.
Above Grade Level uses a proprietary curriculum and education tools that were developed by an international team of education experts. The content is continuously revised and updated to ensure each child receives the best instruction imaginable. Additionally, the curriculum follows the common core standards being taught in all NJ schools. So, each child is actually being taught the curriculum that they may have missed or not understood when a teacher covered it in school, while simultaneously getting help with current day homework. For those that are finding classwork not challenging enough, the curriculum can take them above their grade level to keep them interested and challenged. This process ensures success in the classroom and beyond – whether a student is struggling or advanced.
Since each student is different, their tutoring needs to be different as well. The student begins by taking a free skill assessment to help determine areas of proficiency and areas that need improvement. The assessment enables Above Grade Level education partners to tailor a lesson plan that is focused entirely on the child’s needs, abilities and learning styles.
“Due to the proven success of the curriculum, we are proud to offer a guarantee that students will progress by at least one grade level when following our mastery program,” says Gail Switsky, Executive Director at Above Grade Level of Union County. “We are thrilled to begin working with families in the area and to have an opportunity to impact children both academically and through enhanced confidence.”

Sinai or Sanctuary?



And in the beginning, G‑d was homeless, and so G‑d asked His people to set Him up with some digs. Where does it say that? Well, nowhere, actually. But it does say that G‑d instructed Moses to tell the people, “They shall make for Me a Sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.”

Now the question is, was G‑d really homeless? ...
