Fana Campbell-Taylor is a firm believer in the power of education. With a background based in education, she is now taking her interest to a new level – Eye Level.
She and her husband Carcymar have recently opened Eye Level Learning Center on the Boulevard in Hasbrouck Heights, a supplemental enrichment program for children grades Kindergarten to 12 which focuses on English and Math.
Campbell-Taylor explained it was developed originally in South Korea, which is known for its high education standards, and is now making its way into the United States. Eye Level, which formerly was called Enopi, is a franchise and she and her husband independently own their Hasbrouck Heights center.
The center is geared towards students who need assistance in English or Math or those who just want to excel even further in school. Education is an investment and the benefits always prove to pay off later in life, says Campbell-Taylor.
Campbell-Taylor says their program is set up into individual classrooms with no more than four students learning English at one time and no more than six learning Math at one time. The students come in for just one hour a week.
Curriculum is taught by a certified teacher and sometimes Campbell-Taylor herself and it’s geared towards the individual’s own needs. Students are given a diagnostics test at the start to determine their skill level from which their curriculum will be based upon. The goal is get students to master their skills so they are constantly building a strong foundation of the subject so they can move on to the next level.
The curriculum is not just book based, they also use supplemental tools that help students learn visually as well. It’s also designed to help the students learn to work independently and get them to think creatively. Campbell-Taylor’s goal is to create a fun environment for the students as it’s additional work for them.
The program is open to everyone at all skill levels. She says the program has been proven to help students at all levels including those with learning disabilities.
Campbell-Taylor and her husband live locally in East Rutherford. They chose Hasbrouck Heights because they really like the neighborhood and look forward to being a part of the community.
Eye Level offiically opened on Sept. 11 and will now host a ribbon cutting event Saturday, Oct. 27 at noon which the community is invited to attend and take a tour of the center.
