Tutoring

The Language Program offers one-on-one tutoring for students K-12. Rate per 45 minute class: $65. Contact the Program Director for details and availability (202) 487-1857. If you would like your child to be picked up from school and spend the afternoon at the Language Program, he/she has to be enrolled in our aftercare program the day of the tutoring class.

Parents also have the option of dropping off their child just for the tutoring class. In this case, parents would only pay $65/hour for tutoring.

Outside play

Weather permitting, the children are taken out every day for at least 45 minutes but parents can choose more playground time for their children when signin up. Some children come only once or twice a week, therefore we recommend choosing linguistic/arts and crafts activities to reinforce language skills.

Homework

Children 2nd grade and up will have the opportunity to do their school homework with the assistance of a teacher. Children are always encouraged to read after finishing their homework.

Additional information

End Of The Year Open House and Children's Show Case

Every year around the end of May the Language Program gathers all the families together for dinner and children's performances. Children prepare plays and songs in the language they are studying and then perform them at the Open House. Some groups prepare their own costumes and special messages for the audience. It also allows the parents a chance to socialize with other families and to engage with the language teachers.

Camps

During DCPS closings and most Federal Holidays, the Language Program stays open. Each camp has a different theme. The Language Program also organizes Spanish Summer Camps, For more info, go to the Camp Page.

Late pick-up

Please call us when you are late (202) 487-1857. Late pick-ups are charged a $10 flat fee up to 15 minutes, $20 thereafter.

Parent/teachers communication
