What is Eye Level?
Eye Level is a supplementary education program offering Math and English programs that are heavily focused on developing a child’s critical thinking and analytical skills. Eye Level is based on the educational philosophy of individualized learning. Each student receives a customized program based on their ability, independent of their age or grade level. This philosophy lends itself to the small steps mastery process where the child is started at a level lower than where their ability lies. This method allows the child to master the basic foundational skills necessary before advancing to more complex topics, resulting in the improvement of the child’s accuracy and speed in addition to giving the student confidence in their ability to learn and an increased interest in understanding more challenging concepts. Eye Level’s program nurture’s a child into becoming a self-directed learner who takes initiative, forms goals and identifies solutions, empowering the child to take ownership of their learning.
An Eye Level education starts with seeing things from student's eye level.
"This is a story about a teacher who lowered his height. A man was appreciating the art at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC. As he approached each painting he would kneel down and look up at it. A curious visitor asked him why he was looking at the paintings from his knees. He replied, “I am an elementary school teacher and I will bring my students here tomorrow. I was wondering how my students would enjoy the paintings from a student’s eye level.”
