Whether the goal is to catch up or get ahead, we have programs for all ages and subjects.

Leap Ahead This Summer

Summer Programs

Math Transition Class

Are you entering High School in the fall?  Use the summer to review difficult concepts from the past school year and begin covering new concepts to get ahead. Begin by taking an end-of-the-year 8th grade assessment to determine what areas need additional focus. Together, our tutor and your student will go at a comfortable pace and will cover all difficult concepts. When the tutor feels the student is ready, new topics will be introduced to ensure your student starts their freshman year strong! This class is open to all students transitioning from Middle School into High School. Sessions can be scheduled weekly or bi-weekly depending on the amount of help needed. 

Reading Comprehension Class

Do you need help understanding and completing your summer reading assignment?  Do you want to work on improving your reading comprehension skills? Whether you have an assigned novel to bring in or we provide you with one to read over the summer, work with one of our English tutors on improving your reading comprehension skills. Beneficial for students of all ages and abilities. 

Writing Skills Class

It's every students worst fear.  Whether it's a research paper, persuasive essay or creative piece, most students feel overwhelmed when that paper due date draws near. Our English tutors will help you become a more confident writer by taking each student through all the steps of the writing process. Students will be assigned a new writing prompt to complete between sessions. Go back to school a writing pro!

SAT/ACT/PSAT Class

Seniors: Take advantage of the summer and intensively prepare for your final SAT or ACT in the summer or fall! We recommend scheduling sessions twice a week- one day for math and one day for verbal. Additionally, it is encouraged for students to take a full length test every other week in order to hone their stamina and test taking skills sitting for the full test!  

Juniors: Let's determine which test is the right fit for you! Come in and take a full length benchmark test in both the SAT and ACT. We will score and discuss each test with you and develop a customized plan to help you achieve your target score.  Summer is the ideal time for the actively involved student to use this free time to get a jump start on their preparation. 

Sophomores: Get a jump start on preparing for the PSAT that is offered in mid-October. Come in and take a realistic practice PSAT and receive your test results same day. Upon taking the initial PSAT test, students will enroll in our 3 session PSAT workshop. Each session is based on one of the three topics covered on the PSAT- Math, Reading and Writing. This is a great opportunity for students to become familiar with the layout of the test, target any weakness area(s) that need further attention and feel more confident come test day!
