Some courses take a little more preparation than others. We offer summer content boosters so your student can tackle the challenges right when school starts. Our inhouse gurus will introduce students to the major concepts that form the foundations of high school sciences, math, history and social sciences. A boost at the beginning goes a long way toward staying ahead throughout the year!
Additionally, with the the challenges students faced with distance learning this spring, we’re thinking ahead to what students will need to succeed - both this year and beyond.
One of the biggest problems we’ve noticed in schools is the disruption to math curriculum. Math classes consistently stack concepts from year to year, and missing any unit will have a direct impact on a student’s ability to take on more complex work in the future (whether it’s a freshman headed into Geometry or a junior headed into AP Calculus).
Our entire subject tutoring team has been monitoring the changes and has lesson plans prepared to meet each student, wherever they are in the curriculum, and bring them up to speed. For the remainder of the year, we will work to ensure that students gain the skill sets necessary to succeed in not just this math class, but also the next.
