Personalized, one-on-one tutoring for children and adults to bridge the education gap.

Free Children’s Summer Program

Begins July 11, 2017 – August 17, 2017; Meets weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Our Children’s Summer Program is a six week learning program, beginning July 11, 2017, aimed at first through fifth graders. In addition to helping these children build their reading and math skills, we provide students with experiences that they do not have in their typical school classroom.

Due to the fact that children often do not retain information from the previous school year, our program is focused on creating a year-round learning environment, to prevent summer math and reading loss. We also provide students who need a little extra help to work at or above their grade level in reading and math. And we challenge students to take advantage of the enhancement of basic skills when they return to school in the fall — ready to excel.

The program consists of:

    • Individual and group learning assistance with grade appropriate lesson plans.
    • Creative and challenging learning activities; educational games and interactive activities that introduce new learning opportunities in reading and math.

A Children’s Learning Lab to ensure that our students are exposed not only to learning programs, but also to computer skills that they will need in order to stay competitive in life.

  • Educational Field Trips, to broaden the horizons of our kids, generously sponsored by the Marc Suris Legacy Foundation.
  • Finally, the children will be able to use their math and reading skills in a real life situation, while learning science as well – through our Children’s Urban Garden.
  • An end of the Summer BBQ.

Help your child have a great summer!
