At Nurturing Wisdom, we love summer! Away from the busyness of the school year, summer is the perfect time for students to take a step back and work on the foundational skills that will help them start the new school year strong.
Our most popular one-on-one summer tutoring programs include:
Comprehension through Composition
For grades 3 and up
Take your child’s reading and writing to the next level! We help students read more effectively through the process of writing about what they read. Based on your child’s needs, we’ll customize the plan to include practice in specific areas, such as fluency, vocabulary, editing, and note-taking.
For grades 3 and up
In this program, we identify gaps in your child’s math skills that are holding them back, fill in those gaps, and preview math content for the upcoming year. Students who have completed a math bridge go into their next math class feeling confident and prepared!
Tutoring For Lower Elementary Students
For grades K-2
In our fun and flexible elementary school tutoring program, we’ll use interactive hands-on activities to practice fundamental skills, such as phonics, reading, writing, and math. Students stay active, engaged, and sharp over the summer so they’re ready for the new school year.
College Application Essays
For high school seniors
We help students develop college-level writing skills through the process of completing their college application essays. Getting a head start on these essays over the summer helps students avoid the stress of working on them during the busy senior year, and frees up time for them to enjoy their last year of high school.
For grades 5 and up
This fun and interactive program encourages creativity and imagination and provides plenty of opportunities to write! Students learn the key tools they need to effectively tell compelling stories and make their words come alive.
Summer School Support
For grades 6 and up
Will your child be in school this summer? As always, our tutors are available for all academic subjects to help your child succeed in their summer school classes. We can even work on building executive functioning skills!
We prepare high school students for the ACT, SAT, and SAT Subject Tests for admission to college, and we also prepare grade school students for high school entrance tests like the HSPT, SSAT, ISEE, and more.
Getting started on test prep over the summer is a very effective use of your child’s time. Not only will they be preparing for the big test, they’ll also be working on keeping their skills sharp over the summer in preparation for next school year!
