Tri-Ed Tutoring offers Summer School Options to Virginia Students Heading into the 2008/2009 School Year in Loudoun and Fairfax County Public Schools

An open letter from Tri-Ed Tutoring of Northern Virginia to residents and students of the Dulles Technology Corridor:

Welcome to Summer School (the better way).

TIME. It is the end of another long classwork unit, long semester, or long school year. Your student has sat through countless weeks and hours of lessons, listened earnestly to his teachers, worked in teams in the class environment, and dutifully studied and worked on their homework until late hours of the night at home. With each graded assignment and quiz that has returned, the scored have been disappointingly low. Then–the final blow. With mid-terms finished and all the content read, reviewed, and done you have received the final exam grade and overall score for the class… and you failed to pass with the grade point average that the elementary school, middle school, high school, or college tells you that your student needs or that you personally want. Yikes. The teachers at your school have mentioned summer school remediation, but you are not sure what to do. Do you teach them yourself or do you send them back for more of the same sitting all summer long in the closed walls in yet another filled classroom of the public school?

TASK. That’s when Tri-Ed Tutoring can come to the summer time rescue. Our teachers and tutors can work with your student to help remediate or “re-teach” those difficult concepts in Math, Science, English, and Social Studies. We can help students understand a chapter, unit, semester, or entire course that they already had during the school year. We can help ESL and Special Education students get extra help on difficult areas from Language Arts, can work to help your student improve their conversational English, critical reading skills, and formal academic writing. We also have teachers available to help your child work back through just about any chapter of a public school foreign language program. If your son or daughter struggles academically throughout the school year, we are out here waiting to become their private tutor for one simple reason: because we know one on one tutoring can change the experience of the education world for you. It just takes a summer commitment and a call to one of our Education Specialists to get started with it all.

TALENT. Our tutors at Tri-Ed Tutoring don’t just work with students who struggle in school. We also work with gifted students to bring their grades up in trouble areas. By helping students master difficult standards of learning and benchmarks, we can improve student’s over all self esteem and self confidence as it relates to the classroom. Standardized testing scores always tend to improve in targeted areas, whether on the SOL for Virginia, the achievement tests for Maryland, any exam in DC. Students with a wide range of talents and academic backgrounds are lifting scores and point values on achievement exams like the SAT or ACT by working with private tutoring. The difference a few points here and there makes–well, for the serious student we don’t really need to tell you… A higher score in any subject helps to improve grade point average (G.P.A.) and a higher point value on any standardized achievement exam might mean the difference between winning a scholarship or getting accepted at the college you really want to attend. And once you have been accepted to the university of your choice, we can continue to help you by making sure thesis writing projects for all your college classes do and say what they need to to keep grades high for you.

TUTORING. Whatever your motivation for thinking of starting Remedial Tutoring with a Tri-Ed tutor, we’ve got the rest of the traditional summer school month of June, July, and August available and in front of us to spend time planning out individual curriculum plans that actually target trouble areas. We promise not to waste unnecessary time following pre-packaged and generic study kits like so many of the learning centers or teacher classroom do. All parents and students are welcome to email contactus@tri-edtutoring.com for more confidential information about summer tutoring options. We have special discount rates available for bulk hours and small group tutoring (if you decide to enlist our services for all the students in your family or you have a few friends in mind who might like to join you).

TRAVEL. Many students and parents enjoy working with our tutors during the summer because our tutors come to you. That means we can work from your home, a parent’s office conference room, bookstore (like Barnes & Noble or Books-A-Million), a public library, or even a WIFI friendly coffehouse or restaurant location (like Starbucks, Caribou Coffee, or Panera Bread Company). Where we tutor is based on each student’s unique learning style–so basically, it’s a family decision made in conjunction with the advice of an academic advisor–but unlike a corporate learning center with a prescribed location, the study environment we create for your child is ultimately up to you. Our tutors are constantly on the road traveling to tutoring meetings all over the DC Metro and Mid-Atlantic region to help make the education process fun and enlightening for every student they work with, including providing tutoring service in a way that is better for the parents, too.
