Free Speech and Debate Help for Middle Schoolers!

Do you want your child to improve their confidence with public speaking? Are you looking to further their middle-school-debate skills?

I’m the president of the local high school debate team and I’m going to be hosting biweekly speech-and-debate help sessions throughout the end of June and July for middle-schoolers — from beginners to competitors — to improve their organization, presentation, and argumentative skills.

These lessons will be up-front in person (online) and go over topics such as how to build a proper speech, how to use and attack logical fallacies, and how to ease into a career as a competitor in a high-school program. They’ll also go over proper presentation skills and how to speak slowly and clearly. These skills are increasingly essential in a world that depends on face-to-face communication, even if your child isn’t particularly interested in competitive activity.

For more information and to sign up, please visit my website at thespeaksquare.com.

Berkeley Students offering CS/College Advising Bootcamp

Good afternoon,
We are proud to offer this 6-week course to 7th-11th graders who either have little to no computer science experience or would like to brush up on some fundamentals. As a group of UC Berkeley Computer Science students, we have designed the course based on three introductory CS classes at Berkeley: CS 10, CS 61A, and CS 61B.
We have created our curriculum to be taught in Python through a project-based teaching style, meaning that by the end of the course, students will not only have CS knowledge, but also an impressive, tangible project to put on their resumes/college applications. During the last week of the session, we will be offering a 1:1 college advising session as well as a class-wide presentation on how to effectively create a college application tailored to CS.
Logistical details are as follows:
6 weeks starting 6/16, with 2 hours of virtual instruction twice a week
5-10 students, so at worst, the student-teacher ratio is roughly 3:1.
$360 ($15 an hour)
Attached is a syllabus and an interest form so we can contact you with more details.

Advanced Writing Program- Prep for Next Grade

Writing is an important life skill. It is not only important for academics but is a requirement for college admissions and for a successful professional life. Current school closures have made it even more critical.
Do not take it lightly. Parents SPEND thousands of dollars during high school years for SAT Prep and College Essay Counseling. That is a quick bandaid fix. Every parent should think of writing as a foundational skill that needs to be nurtured from an early age/grade level. You can INVEST a few hundred dollars now and help your child develop a skill that they will reap benefits from for the rest of their lives.
My name is Eileen Mammen and I am an ELA educator with over 25 years of experience mentoring students from all grade levels in English Writing, Reading Comprehension, Grammar and Vocabulary. Contact my office today at 925-973-8087 or email [email protected] to get started. I have developed an 8-week advanced writing and reading comprehension summer program that helps students prep for the next grade level. I promise you’ll not just see an improvement in ELA but an overall improvement in grades as my curriculum focuses on success for your child.

Summer Prep for Grades 1-3 Reading & Writing

Dear parents,
My name is Sarah, an elementary school teacher and I am heading into my fifth year of teaching. Michigan State University is my Alma Mater, (go green!) I graduated with a major in Elementary Education and a teaching focus in Language Arts. Additionally, I minored in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.)
This summer, I plan to bring my love and expertise in reading and writing to the incoming students in grades 1-3.  Early focus and mentoring in reading and writing helps children develop phonological awareness, alphabet knowledge, and print awareness, which are skills associated with future reading and writing proficiencies.
I have taught reading and creative writing courses across elementary grade levels. I pride myself in fostering a fun, meaningful, and safe environment to flourish these skills and develop more assurance in one’s abilities. I am looking forward to the opportunity to share my expertise, and in turn, have students discover their own.
For enrollment or any questions about the summer program, please call or text my helpful team at 925-973-8087. Classes will be conducted online. I look forward to helping your child this summer!
-Ms. Sarah

Geography Classes for a Great Cause

Dear Parents,
My name is Rishvanth, a freshman at DVHS. Recently, I was introduced to a wonderful organization called PURE that strives to help underprivileged children through the power of education. As I was listening to members of the organization talk about their experiences, the problems they were describing for the children were very disheartening. Girls in India didn’t have proper bathroom supplies which caused them to miss school days. This resonated with me, because a simple, everyday aspect that many fortunate people overlook is a big hurdle for kids to overcome in other places of the world. After the meeting, I was determined to help in any way I could. So, I decided to do something I love that would aid the organization. Then I realized that I can use my 2 years of experience in teaching Geography to start a Geography Class whose proceeds will go straight to the charity. I will be giving weekly classes for one hour to elementary kids. That’s why I am requesting a donation of $10 a month. Together, we can make a difference in children’s lives and open a door to a safer and better path.
