**Middle School Tutoring in Sugar Land, TX**

IQ Learning offers a comprehensive Math and ELA program for both elementary and middle school students. The program is divided into 5 levels: L1 through L5.

L1 and L2 are at the Elementary school Grade 4 and 5 levels while L3 through L5 are for the Middle school grades 6 through 8 students. At the end of level 5, students should be well prepared to take up algebra, geometry, and other advanced math courses in high school.

Each level not only meets but also exceeds the standards recommended by the Fort Bend ISD and the Texas Board curricula. Students may advance to any of the L1 - L5 levels depending on their performance at IQ Learning.
