The program of School Bookvar has been developed for children, living in Minnesota where teaching in schools is exercised in English. This particular program is based on peculiarities of the Russian immigration.
The main problem that occurs with the kids having immigrated with their parents to America is that in a short period of time they are not only unable to speak Russian, but can not even understand it. The developers of this program do not base their teaching methods on the formal stuff education, but rather on the individual interests and abilities of each student where joy and willingness are main motivations. We hope that our school will sufficiently develop and be a good addition to the knowledge that your children get in the main school.
The individual treatment in school and the experience of our teachers will make possible to determine a group of a particular level for each student where they will get to know new Russian speaking friends. The relationship between teachers and students are focused on mutual respect and trust. The effects of ways of teaching in school are explained by the simplicity and entertaining value of learning material presented to the students, which trigger increased learning.
With all my respect,
Vladimir Sivriver, MS, PE, RLS
Director of Bookvar School
