Summer is the best time to have a weekly tutor who can teach academic skills and test preparation. The start to the new fall school year is only 7 weeks away. One to one or group tutoring sessions in K-12 math, writing skills, SSAT prep., SAT and ACT prep, reading comprehension, grammar, spelling or foreign language can help prepare students for the new grade level and build confidence.
Many parents enjoy having us organize and teach small groups of pods of K-8 students over the summer for rapport and social interaction. Example many parents of children who are ahead in math often think about their kids passing into a more most challenging math level. At the seventh grade level, our math tutors teach math skills to a group of 7th graders or one on one to help students pass into algebra or geometry in eighth or ninth grade. This step in middle school sets the stage for future college applications. By the time students are a senior, most colleges would like to see Calculus on their record for majors such as business, STEM, economics, biology , engineering and computer science. It is only possible to do if they take geometry as a freshman.
Summer is a good time for students with learning disabilities to catch up as well. Tutors who are trained in executive function skills, ADD or dyslexia can help increase reading or math levels. Ask us about our Lindamood Bell trained tutors as well as our math teachers who have 20 years of experience teaching in the classrooms. These role models can make a difference in your child’s life.
