Chyten’s Reading and Development program (RANDD) significantly improves student confidence and performance. Based on 20 years of experience and recent learning research, this revolutionary study skills program is extremely successful and is in high demand. Now, you can find it in Asheville.
Specifically developed for elementary and middle school students, RANDD is the most comprehensive Reading and Study Skills program ever created. This 14-session tutorial program is everything your child will ever need for a lifetime of learning.
Chyten’s RANDD Program teaches students a method of classroom note-taking that transforms student notes into a handy review page. No more wasting time rewriting notes! RANDD students are taught to recognize verbal and non-verbal clues used by their teachers, to code their notes using Chyten’s customized coding system, to differentiate notes into the three levels of information and to compartmentalize information for recall on tests and quizzes. Utilizing the powerful technique called “association” students memorize large amounts of information easily and without undo time or effort.
Chyten’s RANDD Program teaches student what to say to teachers to make the teachers want to help them earn top grades. This is a long way from bringing the teacher an apple! Training the teacher? Absolutely. What could be more important than letting a teacher know you are serious about doing well in his/her class? Classroom management for students is innovative, creative and very effective.
Information Organization Utilization (IOU)
Never reread a chapter again. Utilizing an innovative strategy called IOU, RANDD students learn to create single-page chapter summaries that contain all the information they need to ace tests and quizzes.
Novels have characters, plot settings and protagonists. Textbooks have headings, subheadings and graphics. Yet, many students read a textbook the same way they read a novel – or a magazine. It is imperative that students learn to differentiate their reading technique to fit the purpose and nature of the reading assignment.
Mid-Range Reading (Read 300 – 700 words per minute)
Amazing! The way we were all taught to read is both tedious and ineffective. Our brain works so much faster than our eyes – no wonder the brain goes to sleep and we experience “the blank page syndrome.” Chyten’s RANDD Program literally reprograms students’ eye-movements, thus speeding up the mechanics of reading while increasing comprehension. THIS IS NOT SPEED READING! It is EFFECTIVE READING.
Active Reading Strategies
Passive reading is far too common among students, contributing to poor comprehension and memorization. Becoming an active reader is essential to effective reading. Chyten’s instructors are experts at helping students become more involved in their reading – and the results can be amazing.
Time-Management and Organization
Should I study math first, or English? Evening or morning? Last minute scrambling to finish a project is not the way to earn high grades. Chyten teaches students to acknowledge their short and long term schedules and to plan their study times for maximum efficiency.
From standardized tests to essays, test-taking strategies are essential to a student’s success. Chyten has long been considered a premier test-preparation service and shares its knowledge with students in a way that is clear, simple and easy to apply to tests and quizzes.
Where a student studies, what kind of lighting is there, background noise, music, telephone, TV or I-Pods, on a bed, at the kitchen table or at a desk – these are all factors in effective studying. Chyten helps students create an environment conducive to effective learning.
