HELPING STUDENTS SUCCEED IN THE ONLINE LEARNING WORLD
Give your student the support they need to keep pace, accelerate, or supplement their academic studies at school. For over 30 years, Summit has been helping students improve grades and enhance learning abilities across all subjects, while building confidence in academic performance. We tutor students in grades 5-12 in a variety of subjects including math, science, history, modern languages, and writing. Our tutors are experienced and caring professionals who enjoy working with young people and know how to motivate and support them.
As with all our programs, the focus of one-on-one academic tutoring is on your student’s needs and goals. We’ll listen and work with you on the subject areas of concern, as well as on strategies for absorbing, organizing, and analyzing course content based on your student’s approach to learning. After each session, parents receive a lesson recap email to keep up to date on progress.
For families that want targeted support on a specific academic subject, Summit’s highly qualified tutors help students stay on track and excel. Summit tutors reinforce classroom learning using the same class materials to provide additional instruction time, help with homework, and answer questions/facilitate study sessions for tests. Our tutors also help with time-management, study skills, and note-taking. After each session, parents receive a lesson recap email to monitor progress and to learn of any areas where their students need additional support.

In today’s remote learning environments, Summit’s academic managers help parents feel assured that students are able to keep on top of school work and stay engaged. Our academic managers work with student(s) to monitor course work and to ensure that homework is completed on-time and successfully, and that students are learning and not falling behind. They’ll collaborate with students to create work plans and hold them accountable while helping to negotiate online learning environments and improve organizational skills. After each session, parents receive a session recap email to report progress and to identify any areas where students need additional support. Most academic manager programs are held once or twice a week lasting 30 minutes, with the option for longer or separate sessions for targeted subject tutoring time.
