Sign up here for Summer 2019
Everyone learns differently and so we approach each student with their unique learning style in mind. Let our staff design a custom summer tutoring program just for your student….and we promise to have some summer fun along the way.
Benefits of attending GOALS this summer
- GOALS has what your student needs! Our academic and executive functioning sessions are 1:1 which means that we can efficiently and effectively address all of your students requirements.
- Because all of our sessions are 1:1 (except Minecraft Camp), we work around your summer plans. Start/stop dates are based on your schedule, not ours.
- GOALS knows that our students need to have some summer fun and there is never a boring day in our office. Our seasoned, creative, fun-loving staff cannot wait to help your student find the joy of learning over the summer!
GOALS Summer Programs
- Minecraft Camp
- We are super excited about this creative camp! Minecraft Camp is geared towards 4th grade and older students who love Minecraft. The camp is focused on teaching self-advocacy and project management skills along with a host of executive functioning skills. Your student will be having so much fun, they will hardly notice they are learning, but believe us… they will be learning!
- Project-based Executive Functioning (EF) Skills
- It is a well-researched fact that students benefit from year-round executive function practice. We will help your student practice their EF skills throughout the summer… but with a twist! We will base their EF sessions on their personal interests. Our Executive Function Coaches will design an EF program just for your student. Do you have a Boy Scout in your house? We will feature EF skills by working with them on merit badges or an Eagle Scout Project. Is your student interested in getting their first job? We will design EF sessions that teach where to look for jobs, how to fill out a job application, and interviewing skills. Do you have an athlete in your house? We will design EF sessions on how to design a training program to help them increase their skill level and a nutrition program to optimize their energy. Tell us your student’s interests and we will make learning EF skills fun!
- School Transition – Skills Boost for Middle School, High School, and College
- Is your elementary school student moving up to middle school? Is your middle school student moving up to high school? Is your high school student moving up to college? Are you feeling like their skills could use a boost before they make this transition? Our staff will design sessions that help your student with their executive functioning skills: time management, prioritization, organization, note taking, and study skills.
- Test Prep
- Let’s face it, your students are busy people. Summer can be an ideal time to study for the ACT, SAT, subject tests, or private middle school entrance exams. Our proven test prep programs ensure that your student is ready for testing day.
- FREE math and critical reading & writing assessments
- The GOALS staff will deliver a report to you that details your student’s areas of strength and areas where there are gaps in their knowledge. Our staff will then design a program to help fill those gaps in knowledge so that your student can start off next school year with confidence. We also offer a host of math and critical reading and writing workshops.
- Summer school support, online class support, fill-in gaps in knowledge
- Whether your student will be attending summer school, taking an online class, or needs to fill-in some gaps in knowledge before the next school year, our staff is ready to support your student.
- Work ahead
- Is your student taking AP or honors classes next school year? We will help them get a jump start on the curriculum and start next school year with confidence and a little less stress.
- Foreign language support
- Spanish? French? Mandarin? We got that. Practice over the summer makes perfect during the school year.
