Taking a Gap Year
by George G.
Taking a gap year before moving on to important kinds of education, like university or college, has become a widely spread choice among the youth for various reasons, depending on the individual’s point of view, whether they want to explore the world by travelling or take advantage of their time and gain work experience.
One of the greatest joys of teaching is witnessing your own kids develop their talents and personalities. In this section I’ll be sharing with you, some of their projects.

One essential skill students are called upon to master, is that of Reading Comprehension. Many a time, we are all obliged to ‘decipher’ a text, be it for school, exams, work or even daily activities. However, the lingering question which must be answered, is…
“What is Reading Comprehension?
Teens on average have more than 3 hours of homework a night. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for after-school fun or even sleep. Now experts are questioning whether the amount of homework is leading to harmful levels of stress in teens.
