At Innovative Teaching, we believe every student has the ability to learn and be successful, each in their own way. We offer individualized tutoring, enrichment classes, and educational alternatives to students who don't function well in a normal classroom setting. We serve Cupertino, Saratoga, Los Gatos, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, San Jose, Santa Clara, and the greater San Francisco Bay area as well as the Marysville and Yuba City area.
Each tutoring student starts our program with a free initial assessment to identify their strengths and challenges. We then work with the student, parents and teacher(s) to develop an individualized curriculum, specific to the student's needs, learning style and goals. Our approach emphisises a routine which keeps the student engaged in the learning process, while promoting communication about the student’s progress. Where this approach is very successful, it works especially well with remedial, special needs and students with learning difficulties.
Our classes and workshops 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.
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.
