Summer Tutoring in Delco and Chester County, PA
Serving Chester County
Research indicates that students lose an average of 30% of their prior year’s learning over the long summer break. But summer skill slide doesn’t have to happen!
Summer offers a much-needed break for students, but the extended vacation can set them back and they can lose some of the academic progress they made during the year. Above Grade Level offers comprehensive summer programs to avoid the “summer slide” and equip your student to excel over the long summer recess. Your child will be confident and well prepared for their next grade level once the new school year begins.
Our summer tutoring programs provide a refreshing break to the daily grind of the school year. We start by designing a custom learning plan for your child based on the results of our Free Skill Level Assessment .
Student Writing Skills Workshop
A Pen and A Plan: A Writing Workshop for the Middle School Student
Led by Ms. Sherry Parnell: Independent Professional Writer & Editor, Master of Arts in English
Middle school age students can lose as much as 30% of their school year learning over the summer. This includes a loss of critical writing skills your child needs to succeed. For the student seeking to keep up and get ahead, spending as little as 2-3 hours per week during the summer can make a big difference.
Above Grade Level understands that as a parent you want to put your child in the best position for success each new school year. That’s why we created the Writing Skills Workshop for middle school students. This unique writing program focuses on analytical and creative writing techniques. Students learn to think critically and organize their thoughts into clear, cohesive ideas. They will also learn some of the secrets professional writers use make their writing a pleasure to read: writing with elements of style. The writing skills learned in this course will be valuable throughout their middle school, high school, and college years.
Put your child in the best position to succeed. Above Grade Level is offering a
