Summer Step Up
Summer Step Up helps students maintain and strengthen their literacy and academic skills over the summer. Our tutors provide engaging, individualized one-on-one tutoring in a casual summer environment, working on each student’s specific learning needs as identified by their classroom teacher or their family.
In summer 2020, due to COVID-19, tutoring will be delivered online using Webex video-calling via computer or tablet. Don’t worry if this sounds intimidating! We will be here to help you with installing and navigating this new app. We can also provide tablets and prepaid data cards if you need them.
Tutoring this summer will be for Grades K-7, and will specialize in developing reading strategies and fluency only. Due to the unique challenges presented by online tutoring, we apologize that we will not be able to offer math or other subjects this summer.
