Semester lessons will begin the week after labour day (September 4th) aligning with the official end of Summer. The Autumn semester will run to Christmas and the Spring semester will run after Christmas until the end of the school year.
Tuition is purchased by semester and you will get the number of sessions that correlate to the term time schedule. We advise completing two sessions a week (and this is how your number of sessions is determined) however you can adjust this at will, completing all your semester’s sessions in a week or two if you should choose.
The Nessy Learning Center will be open 3:30-7:30pm, Monday- Friday with sessions starting at half past the hour for an hour. To book a session you just need to text in advance to secure your place.
The lessons will be computer driven, with students working through their targets on Nessy Reading & Spelling, both independently and with specialist teacher help. They will also have the opportunity to play phonics-based card games, board games and complete worksheets.
Nessy Center membership is subscription based. It is purchased by semester but may be payed monthly by an auto draft. Your student’s membership allows for 8 sessions per month and these may be used anytime during the center’s open hours. Sessions begin on the half hour.
Your student’s learning passport gets a stamp each time they enter the Land of Ness.
What happens during a session?
Nessy Center kids have access to all Nessy programs and apps – Reading and Spelling, Nessy Numbers, Writing Beach, Hairy Phonics, Hairy Words (for sight word mastery) and the touch typing program Nessy Fingers. Students get access to computers and Chromebooks, and tutors pull out individual students or groups of students for group games, boards games, and individual practice. Lesson plans are tailored to the needs of each student. Periodic progress reports help you follow your student’s successes.
