Innovative Teaching is a unique learning center, where we believe every student has the ability to learn and be successful, each in their own way. We offer individualized tutoring, enrichment classes, a fun activity based afterschool program that reinforces the student’s academic skills, and educational alternatives to students who don't function well in a normal classroom setting. We are located in San Jose, on the borders of Cupertino and Saratoga and serve the communities of Cupertino, Saratoga, Los Gatos, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, San Jose, Santa Clara, and the greater San Francisco Bay area.
Each tutoring student starts our program with a free initial assessment to identify their strengths and challenges. Our tutors then work with the student, parents and teacher(s) to develop an individualized curriculum, specific to the student's learning style and goals. We proceed with a program which emphasizes communication about the student’s progress and a routine which keeps the student engaged in the learning process. Where this approach is very successful, it works especially well with remedial, special needs and students with learning difficulties.
Our enrichment classes are designed to give the student a new perspective on the subject matter while reinforcing what they’ve already learned. The curriculum is generally presented to the students based on grade level expectations, but their classwork is tailored to their individual grasp of the subject matter. This approach lets us cater to students of varying abilities. It also ensures students get as much as possible from a class by presenting material which is appropriate for them.
Our afterschool program is designed to help students improve their reading, writing and verbal skills while expanding their interest in science and technology with demonstration-activity-game based classes. We also provide help with homework.
For those students who don’t do well in a normal classroom setting, and are looking for a fresh start, we provide an individualized education program, which supports, augments or replaces traditional schooling all together.
