SpiderSmart Learning Center of Tysons Corner

Nowhere else will students get the kind of individual attention from teachers as they will at SpiderSmart.

Our trained instructors work one-on-one with students to turn their weaknesses into strengths. By fostering mentor relationships with their pupils, not only do teachers help children learn, but they also make education enjoyable. Perhaps more importantly, nothing can compare to the lifelong benefits children gain from reading books, thinking critically, and learning to write effectively. This is the SpiderSmart Way, proven successful since 1989.

What's new in the SpiderSmart Library?


The following 3 P’s will allow you to engage with your reading, learn actively, and study more efficiently:


Did you know?

SpiderSmart began over 30 years ago when our founder, Jeannie Jung started reading with her children. She was raising 2 young kids and they loved to go to the library and read books. Being an immigrant, she knew how difficult the English language was and wanted to encourage her children to learn to love reading and writing at a young age. One day, she thought about developing writing assignments based on the books they were reading together. Her children completed the assignments and the result was a better understanding of the book and the higher ability to read and write. Her children enjoyed it and she realized she was onto something.

Over time, Jeannie accumulated about 50 assignments and she had the idea of trying the program with other children. She rented a small room in her church and set up a temporary center. On the first day, 8 children showed up! Over time, SpiderSmart has expanded to help thousands of students and we are still growing! We now have centers nationwide!


Choose one of the following prompts and write a short story. You may write using first person (I) or third person about a character you create. Your story does not have to be true in real life; you are free to use your imagination!

Write about a huge surprise that happens. What is it and how do you (or your character) react? The surprise could either be exciting or terrible – feel free to pick whichever one you think would make a more dramatic story.

Write a story from the perspective of an animal at an animal shelter. What kind of animal is your main character? Think about whether your main character gets adopted by a family or makes friends (or enemies) at the shelter.

Write a story where your character is traveling on vacation and something horribly goes wrong. The problem could involve the transportation, the hotel, the food, etc. What happens and how does your character respond? What is the rest of the trip like? Use your imagination and humor.

Imagine you are babysitting for your neighbor’s children and you hear an eerie noise from outside (or in the house). Do you investigate or hide? Explain what happens to you and the kids you are watching using plenty of suspense.

Mr. Jason's book review for Hispanic Heritage Month!


SpiderSmart Book Review


National Book Lovers Day is approaching (August 9th) and we would like to take this opportunity to introduce some of our SpiderSmart teachers' favorite books!

There will be more to come!


Topic: What does being independent mean to you?

Directions: In a clear, organized, and compelling essay, discuss what independence means to you. In what ways are you independent? In which areas would you like to become more independent? Being independent can look like brushing your teeth on your own, doing your chores without help, doing homework yourself, making decisions on your own, and/or relying on yourself to solve a problem. Finally, discuss whether independence is important to you and explain why.

Levels and Writing Requirements:

There will be three groups for this competition based on grade level. Essay word count ranges are below. You must meet the minimum word count, though you will not be penalized if you slightly exceed the maximum. This is an essay, not a novel.

Junior (Grades 3-5): 200-400 words

Middle (Grades 6-8): 400-500 words

Senior (Grades 9-12): 500-600 words

Prizes: There will be 1st and 2nd place winners from each group
