Richmond Tutoring Academy

RCCA began in 1989 and was modelled after a Japanese-style “Juku.” This intensive training institute concentrates short teaching modules which the students learn in class and subsequently complete at home.  The weekly homework is 2 hours.  The goal is an intensive training in the various disciplines of English in order to elevate the students' ability and performance at school.

RCCA is undergirded with a focus on traditional values and a phonics-based , grammatical discipline.  All of the writing modules taught are highly structured in content.  As such,  all students know exactly what is required of them when they write.  The writing disciplines taught are very applicable to the students’ classroom setting.  Some of the content includes Essay Writing, Narrative Story Summaries, Short Compositions, and Research skills.  An increase in Vocabulary and Grammar Skills is highly emphasized to maximize the effect of Writing.
