Keep your kids (enjoying) reading this summer! 

Summer vacation is quickly approaching, and while it's important for students to relax and have fun over the summer, it is also essential that they continue to read!

Numerous studies indicate that students who don't read or read infrequently during their summer vacation see their reading abilities stagnate or even decline in what is called "the summer slide." This effect becomes more pronounced as students get older and advance through the school system. Reading regularly can prevent your child from falling behind their peers and widening the achievement gap. 

This is exactly why schools have summer reading lists, but despite being worthwhile reads, the books on these lists may not always be the most fun. Your child does not have to be limited to the books that the school selects, and reading one book a week would be a great goal for your child to set and achieve.

Last Chance to Prep for the SAT and ACT Tests!

Plan for your child to take a standardized test at least twice to give them the best chance of a high score. 

The next SAT will be on June 3rd.
The last Spring ACT will be on June 10th.

Our tutors have been fully trained in the new content 
and test-taking strategies of both the SAT and ACT tests. We focus on time-management and customize our instruction to meet the needs of each student. 

If you are not sure whether your child should take the SAT or ACT, please see the article below.

SAT vs. ACT: Choose Wisely

We often see students who feel more comfortable with one test over the other, so if you have the time to start early, we can create the best action plan for them moving forward this spring.
