Mathematics: We check students’ math skills, and bring the students “up to speed” in the students’ weak areas. If you wish, our tutor will introduce your child to the curriculum of the fall’s class, so you child will have more confidence and a strong start.
English Language Arts including Writing. You may want us to start with the summer reading lists that schools assign for the summer. We help students read their books and prepare them for classroom discussion in the fall. Lessons based on the books include note taking, vocabulary and writing. We can concentrate on writing, or any aspect of English Language Arts that you wish.

Our biology tutor teaches by this plan in preparing students for taking a biology class in the fall. We use this plan or variations in prepping students for both science and non-science courses.
1 You cannot expect to learn all major facts of the biology class during the summer.
2 Get a copy of the textbook, and learn how to read the textbook. Students who read their textbooks will learn more during the school year. (A) Learn to reach for the textbook for regular reading and for study. (B) Learn how to search in the book for specific information, when studying.
3 Learn the important themes of the textbook. Example of one theme: Function follows form.
4 Discuss the ways in which the class is conducted. Example: Lab work is a major part of class time in preAP biology classes. Learn how labs are conducted and learn how to write lab reports.
5 Learn how multiple choice questions are written in preAP classes and other advanced classes. Choosing among answers may require careful reading.
6 Find the website of the textbook company and teach students to use the resources in the website.
Take a full semester's course. If you want to use credit for a summer course in your high school transcript, you must get approval from your school's counselor before you take the course. The courses most commonly accepted for transcript credit are languages, Economics and Government. We recommend online courses from Texas Tech University, which offers almost all public school courses, grades 1 – 12. We will help you with homework, and help you prepare for exams. Call us for more information.
