NYS Common Core ELA/MATH Test Prep Grades 4 to 7 @ vera list center

NYS Common Core ELA/MATH Test Prep Grades 4 to 7 Starts Now!

Get ahead during Midwinter Recess by getting ready for the NYS Common Core ELA and Math state exams with expert test prep instructors!

General Overview of our Course:

Our NYS Common Core Intensive courses consist of 5 teaching sessions. Students will receive a thorough overview of all ELA/MATH content, be exposed to past tests and essay questions, and learn valuable test-taking strategies. We will cap each class at 5 students per teacher and open additional sessions if needed.
The course will be taught by teaching professionals who are familiar with the NYS Common Core standards and curriculum. Instructors have taught Common Core ELA/MATH in the classroom setting as well as a specific ELA/MATH test prep, and have experience grading the tests. The bottom line: our instructors know the ins and outs of the test and can help students enter the exam with confidence.

We also supplement our materials with our fundamental skill building enrichment programs when we see that a child may be lacking in important underlying skills. We also customize each child’s curriculum to meet the strengths and weaknesses of each individual student. This is what sets us apart from all of our competitors in this space and make us by far the most comprehensive, tailored, and effective solution!

Homework is assigned to all students in order to follow up what they learned at the center and to provide each student with more practice (progress) materials and workbooks/sheets outside the center.

By the time April rolls around, our students have a solid fundamental background in NYS Common Core ELA/MATH, with extensive experience answering both short response and extended response questions.

We accepted a Limited Number of Students in each grade. Reserve your seat early!

15 TOTAL HOURS OF STRATEGIC PREP!
1. Small group: 5 students only!
2. New Core Curriculum Lessons & Materials
3. Hand-grading & Thorough Explanations
4. Topnotch Books, Materials, & Instructors
5. Excellent Core ELA Test-Taking Strategies

The Limit of No Limit: Finding Freedom in Creative Expression, with Pat Steir @ Zen Center of New York City
Feb 20 all-day
The Limit of No Limit: Finding Freedom in Creative Expression, with Pat Steir @ Zen Center of New York City

Saturday, 10am-4pm
We all have an idea about what freedom is—from being able to do what we want to not having anything in our way. We long to be free from what holds us back—fear, anger, obligations. We don’t have to look too far, however, to see how our lives are characterized by constraint: geographical, familial, financial, psychological, emotional. How do we experience the limits in our lives? When we come across a limit that cannot be moved or changed—where do we find our freedom?

In this retreat, renowned contemporary painter Pat Steir will guide you through working with limits in the creative process. The containment provided by a limit can allow us to see the subtle, internal limits we apply to ourselves and our experience. In the same way, a limit can also help us connect with the inherent, unconditional freedom that is available in any situation.

Pat Steir’s unique approach to guiding people in the creative process resonates powerfully with the practice of zazen. Her retreats are less about creating pretty pictures of things and all about seeing our mind. We recommend her retreats for those who struggle with art practice or art-making, those who wish to reinvigorate and free up their creative work, and those with no experience whatsoever.

A True Line: Handwriting & Brush, with Barbara Bash @ Zen Center of New York City

Saturday, 10am-4pm
In this workshop, we’ll devote ourselves to exploring a uniquely accessible form of creative expression—our own handwriting. We’ll slow it down, listening to its honest, intimate truths. Later, we’ll expand our exploration into big brush practice, investigating what makes a line true and alive.

Following forms, letting them go—a new clarity emerges. Awareness opens as we bring what is in our mind out onto the page. With pen and paper, and then brush and ink, we improvise with the moment, in conversation with the world. Please join renowned brush artist and calligrapher Barbara Bash for this day of connection—with the page and ourselves—joining mind, body, and visual creative practice.

Face to Face: Art Practice Portraits, with Jody Hojin Kimmel, Osho @ Zen Center of New York City

Saturday, 10am-4pm
What is a face? When we look in the mirror, what do we see? Human faces fill our lives: we recognize each other by our faces and express our every emotion through them, but how many of us have truly plumbed the mystery of a face?

In this retreat working with drawing materials and watercolors, we will move deeply into seeing faces, going beyond our usual critique and superficial observations. We’ll let ourselves fall in love with the crevasses, wrinkles and creases that life has etched into our skin. Deep study of our own face and the faces of others can cultivate our sense of amazement and give us a way to enter the mystery of who we are.

This is a courageous practice. Whether we are the one being studied, or carefully scrutinizing another, we will find challenges. It is a pratice to take an unadorned, raw look at our mind and how we perceive self and others. Can we attend to our human faces with care and wonder?

If you have a small hand mirror, please bring it.

Darlene Love joins Brooklyn Center’s 2015-16 Season @ Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts
Apr 3 @ 12:00 am

Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College is pleased to announce the addition of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Darlene Love to its 2015-16 season, performing a concert of her numerous hits on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at 8pm. Ms. Love is the latest name added to Brooklyn Center’s lineup, which also includes season opener Michael Feinstein, a holiday concert by Vienna Boys Choir, jazz violin virtuoso Regina Carter, and a tribute to Nat King Cole featuring Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli. Tickets for the Darlene Love concert are $40 and can be purchased at BrooklynCenter.org or by calling the Brooklyn Center box office at 718-951-4500.

About Darlene Love
Through the years, Darlene Love continues to captivate audiences worldwide with her warm, gracious stage presence and sensational performances. Since the early sixties, as part of Phil Spector’s wall of sound hit factory, this great lady has done it all—from major motion pictures like the highly successful Lethal Weapon series to Broadway hits like Hairspray and Grease. She even starred as herself in Leader of the Pack, credited as Broadway’s first ‘jukebox musical.’ Darlene has appeared on numerous television programs, running the gamut from her weekly appearances on Shindig to a recent guest spot on the PBS special entitled Women Who Rock. She also appears in the documentary film 20 Feet From Stardom, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2013 and went on to win the Academy Award for Best Documentary. 2013 also saw the publishing of her memoir, My Name is Love, co-written with New York Times writer/editor Rob Haerberger. In 2014, The Oprah Winfrey Network announced that it is producing a biopic for the big screen based on Love’s life, starring pop singer Toni Braxton.

Darlene’s background vocals for The Blossoms, The Crystals, The Righteous Brothers, Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye, and Elvis Presley (to name but a few) set the stage for her emergence as a star in her own right. Her Billboard hits include “He’s A Rebel,” “The Boy I’m Gonna Marry,” “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Wait ‘Til My Bobby Gets Home,” “He’s Sure the Boy I Love,” and the #1 holiday classic “Christmas Baby Please Come Home,” a song that she performed annually with Paul Shaffer and the CBS Symphony Orchestra on The Late Show With David Letterman.

In 2011, Darlene Love received her industry’s highest award when Bette Midler, a great fan of her work, inducted her into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. During the festivities, Darlene also sang “He’s a Fine, Fine Boy,” backed by another distinguished fan, Bruce Springsteen.

Rolling Stone magazine has proclaimed Darlene Love to be “one of the greatest singers of all time,” and that certainly rings true, but perhaps Paul Shaffer says it even more concisely: “Darlene Love IS Rock N’ Roll!”

Two-time Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin is a towering figure on television, on tour and in publishing. She breaks through the entertainment clutter with her universally recognized brand of pull-no-punches comedy. Kathy made history with her 6th consecutive Grammy nomination and first win for Best Comedy Album (Kathy Griffin: Calm Down Gurrl), joining Whoopi Goldberg and Lily Tomlin as the only other female comedians to ever win Grammy Awards for Best Comedy Album.

In 2013 Kathy was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for writing and starring in an unprecedented 20 televised stand-up specials—more than any comedian in history. Buoyed by her dedicated and engaged fans, Kathy’s live standup performances are legendary and in a class of their own, and hundreds of thousands of people flock to see her perform sold out shows everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House.

Kathy draws a huge audience to CNN’s New Year’s Eve special, which she has co-hosted with Anderson Cooper since 2007, beating Fox News in the coveted ratings demographic. She is one of television’s go-to hosts for premier live events. After co-hosting The Billboard Music Awards LIVE three years in a row, this year Kathy hosted the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards LIVE and AARP’s Movies for Grownups Gala.

Griffin’s sure-fire hosting success led to her own live late night talk show, Kathy. It was where the biggest celebrities went to have the most fun. Her boisterous and revealing memoir, Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin, debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller List. Griffin won two Primetime Emmy Awards for her hit reality series, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, which aired for six years on Bravo. It was nominated every single year of its run. The show also won the GLAAD Media Award for Best Reality Program and was nominated six consecutive times by the Producers Guild of America.

Kathy was a cast member on NBC’s Suddenly Susan and guest starred on Seinfeld and Law & Order: SVU. She lent her unique voice to animated characters in Shrek Forever After and the award-winning television shows The Simpsons, American Dad, and Dilbert.

Griffin’s other awards and honors include The Human Rights Campaign’s Ally for Equality, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America’s Leadership in Entertainment honor, GLAAD’s Vanguard award, The Trevor Life Award from the Trevor Project, and a Gracie Award for Outstanding Female Lead.
