Hakam Academy of Learning provides more than just traditional tutoring services, we also have fun and exciting workshops where educational activities turn long days into exciting unforgettable adventures.
Accelerated Summer Program
Returning back to the school year from the summer vacation leaves students feeling lost and underprepared for the beginning of classes. To ensure students don’t loose the knowledge and skills of what was acquired the previous grade, an accelerated summer program is used. The accelerated summer program is where students can either be prepared for the next year by learning the curriculum beforehand or can be used to work on prior skills and concepts that need to be strengthened.
The tutors go over lesson plans that are very similar to ones that are used by teachers at school and ensure each concept is thoroughly understood before moving to the next. During the program all units of a subject can be covered for the next year. Most importantly, we ensure to go at the student’s pace to ensure a non-stressful environment with maximum understanding of all units.

Alongside the normal tutoring classes, there are extra programs during the week of March Break and Winter Break where students can collaborate with other students to go through various activities. We create various activities that are both educational but also zap your child’s creative mind.
