MyGuru Announces New Summer Small Group Tutoring Program for Grades 1-3

Posted by Mark Skoskiewicz on Sun, Apr 22, 2012 @ 11:50 AM

Driven by direct demand from Ogden Elementary school parents, MyGuru is proud to announce a summer tutoring program for grades 1-3 in the near north area of Chicago.   Although MyGuru typically begins working with students at the high school level (and then continues on through college and beyond, helping with all standardized tests along the way), we have a variety of highly qualified tutors who are educated, trained, and certified to work with much younger students as well.

So, when we were contacted about developing a small group tutoring program for students in grades 1-3, we reached out to a few of our tutors, and they showed enthusiastic interest in taking part in the program.  All lesson plans will engage students through a variety of learning styles, and provide multiple options for tracking their progress.  The curriculum is based on the needs of each student, including students with Individual Education Plans (IEPs). The two teachers, Sara Howes (M.A. Teaching, Special Education Teacher and ACT Tutor at Northwestern Education Center) and Katie Cardella (M.A. Teaching, with experience in grades 1-3) will meet with parents, by appointment, at regular intervals during the program.

The first six students to commit to the program will be guaranteed spots.  If we get more interest, we will maintain a waiting list,  an additional class will be scheduled, or the class expanded with additional teacher time to keep the 1:6 teacher/student ratio.  The registration deadline is May 18.
