At what age can my student start attending?
- We work with students aged four and up who are able to focus for 10-15 minutes.
How many times a week will my student come to the center and for how long is each visit?
- April 2020: Due to COVID-19, we are offering the Gideon at Home Correspondence Plan with online sessions using the same booklets.
- Most students attend twice a week for center visits and complete Gideon assignments at home the other days. However, you can come once a week or request extra classes for an additional fee.
- Each center visit is typically 20 - 30 minutes per subject to do individual daily assignments, complete any old corrections, and review new material. A Gideon instructor will be at the table with the students to assist as needed. We maintain a 2:1 student to teacher ratio for Young Learners (aged 4-8) or 4:1 ratio for Independent Learners (aged 9 and up).
What level of work will my student be doing?
- During the free placement evaluation, we will find a 'just right' point in the Gideon curriculum based on what skills your student shows as mastered in order to fill any holes and gaps in his foundation. Read more about the importance of mastering lower levels HERE. Download a full curriculum listing HERE.
- Our goal is to build confidence through mastery with progress right from the start to encourage focus and concentration.
Does Gideon work with students with learning differences such as dyslexia?
- Yes, the Gideon program works well for most students, including those with learning differences. While school must continue on its schedule, we have the luxury to allow the student to set the pace and do any extra practice needed to truly master each level. If your student has dyslexia, read THIS to find out why Gideon is a good solution.
Does Gideon work with students with special needs such as autism?
- Yes, the Gideon program works with many special needs students. We can evaluate further if Gideon is a good fit when we meet your student during the free placement evaluation.

Owner and Director, Fiona Yee, was raised by parents who put a huge emphasis on receiving the best education. It was deeply ingrained in her being at a young age to aim for the highest. Every one of her six siblings is either an entrepreneur or a professional. To her, the sky is the limit. She pursued and received a doctor’s degree in pharmacy in 1994 and has been a supervisor in the workforce for 20 years. Fiona has a deep love of children and has been teaching them every week in her church for over 15 years. Her own children started the Gideon program when they each were five years old. It is truly an incredibly beneficial and structured self-paced program. Both her children are excelling at a gifted and talented public school which is rated among the top 5% percent of their school district. She has seen how the potentials of the learning capacity of her own children are being brought to the fullest by Gideon. She believes in the Gideon curriculum and philosophy so much that she decided to open a center to help many more children receive these benefits.
