In 1978, I could not do long division.
And believe me, I tried.
There were just way too many steps.
It was confusing, frustrating, and I could never get it right.
Well, that summer (the summer between fourth and fifth grade) my mom got me a tutor, Mrs. Lewis.
I rode my bike to her house every week.
And you know what?
By the end of the summer, I could do long division!
I had mastered the steps and I felt great about myself.
So when I went to fifth grade, it was really the first time in my life I actually felt confident about math.
Now, I’m sure you’re not actually all that interested in my fifth grade math performance (and neither am I for that matter).
But it’s illustrative of what I want to share with you today…
Our take on summer tutoring for 2019: a time where grades, schedules, and distractions dominate during the year, often leaving an inadequate amount of time and focus available for learning to happen how we’d like it to.
Summer tutoring isn’t just for kids that are a little bit behind and need to get caught up because they can’t afford to lose any ground.
In fact, we frequently see kids that are doing just fine in school, do nothing over the summer, and subsequently fall behind the following year.
And that means more effort in the fall to catch back up during the most hectic, difficult, and distraction-filled time of the school year.
So this year, we’re making it simple.
Work with a tutor now through summer and save 15%.
Most of all, it’s an opportunity for your child to finally get ahead of the game and feel great going into next year.

“Things are going very well, thank you. Jaimee is really helping to make concepts less abstract for Kesha and working with her specifically on how to apply them in her work.” ~ Carol, EC Tutoring Parent
“Ivey has worked with Patrick several weeks now, and it is going well. We have found Patrick to be thoughtful, earnest, engaging, and patient. Ivey says the sessions are helpful, and our family is experiencing less stress and conflict around homework since Patrick and Ivey began working together.” ~ Kennedy, EC Tutoring Parent
