ScholarSkills: Helping Today’s Students Succeed (Published in the Carribean Life Newspapers)
Mr. Brian Vieira is an award-winning educator who spent twelve years working as a teacher in the New York City public school system. His innovative methods, strong classroom discipline, and passion for learning earned him recognition as well as the respect of peers and students.
he and his professional staff provide disciplined learning to small groups of children. Specifically, the center offers after school tutoring and test preparation for students from kindergarten through high school.
What makes ScholarSkills unique is that children receive personalized attention. “We identify weaknesses.” explains Mr. Vieira. “We then go back to the foundation and repair these weak areas.”
By helping children understand what they’re learning at school,
“we build confidence and provide motivation,” he says.
“We make excellence exciting.”
All students have individual curriculums, specifically designed to meet their needs. As learning progresses, children receive certificates and other motivational incentives for excellence and effort! “They get the attention they need,” he stresses. Students are prepared for all New York City required standardized tests as well as specialized high school tests, including the PSAT and SAT, Math, Reading, and Writing skills are emphasized. Additionally, the after School Program provides parents with “a safe, progressive environment for homework help,” says Mr. Vieira. “Children are not roaming the streets.” Instead, they are doing “developmental work--vocabulary, reading, math--providing them with the chance to accelerate.” It is not only the students who receive help. ScholarSkills provides family-oriented learning, offering guidance counseling to families at no additional cost. Mr. Vieira knows firsthand how frustrating the complex New York City public school system can be. That’s why he helps parents walk through the steps, offering assistance with questions such as: What school is best for my child? How can the system help my child? What tests will my child need to pass this school year? We are the problem-solvers and counselors who help navigate the system."
