Whether you have a child who loves to read or a child that would rather do anything but read, this summer reading club is for you! Avoid the learning gap that occurs when students stop reading over the summer. Through the course of 4 weeks we will do one novel study, as well as touch on a few other genres to add background information and insight. This will be a fun and exciting way to keep your student reading over the summer whether they love it or dread it. We will focus on critical thinking skills as we analyze the text for the deeper meaning. Fun projects, activities, and discussions during the twice weekly meetings at a variety of locations- such as HSP, local parks, and attractions., Monthly Tuition: $85 ($10 discount when you sign up for both sessions) Supply Fee: ​$10

Summer Tutoring

There are several options -such as one-on-one sessions or a small group (no more than 3-4 students) if desired. Flexible scheduling with dates, times, and locations determined individually. Please contact us for further information or to discuss if this would be a good fit for you this summer!
