How to Fight "Brain Drain" and Still Enjoy Your Summer

We’ve written in the past about how to make sure that summer school won’t ruin your summer or how to make summer courses help you in meeting your educational goals.  However, if you are like most people, you don’t want to think about anything school-related during the summer!  How can you enjoy your summer vacation while not giving in to the “summer slide?”

Preparing for AP Exams

Even though the AP exams aren’t until May, now is the time to start your AP test prep, particularly if you aren’t taking an AP course.  (Yes, that’s correct—it is possible to take an AP exam even if you aren’t taking an AP course in that subject area!)  Because AP exams are what colleges use to judge whether or not you are granted college credit for your knowledge in a certain subject, they are more comprehensive and require a greater knowledge than an SAT Subject test.  Understandabl

How to Choose the Right Tutor

One-on-one attention from the right tutor can make all the difference in your child’s academic success.

When Summer School is the Right Choice for You

Here we are, summer around the corner, the sidewalks soon heating up, and dreams of beach vacations approaching.  But wait.  Maybe you’re just realizing your son has fallen behind in that geometry class.  Maybe your daughter needs better language prep in Spanish or Latin.  Perhaps English is a second language and your child will be more comfortable with classes next term by continuing English studies during the summer.  Or maybe your child wants to go deeper in a topic of interest.
