Virtual Summer School: The New Reality?
Let's unpack why virtual summer school is the new reality and what options are available for your child.
Virtual summer school is the new reality
Online learning has become the norm for most of our children over the past year, no matter where you live. As parents, we've had concerns about whether the lack of face-to-face learning has been detrimental to learning and grades. However, it has found its place among various study methods and looks set to stay.
Virtual summer school explained
The easiest summer school ever: no bags to pack and no dropping off sleepy teenagers at an early hour. It's time- and cost-efficient. Just a few hours online from the comfort of their own home, with expert tutors offering the personalized approach that one-on-one and small group teaching allows. Just a few hours across a few weeks of the summer break can make an incredible difference.

It really is a win-win
We understand that after a long school year, students need a break from the books and time to relax and explore the wider interests that will make them the happy and rounded individuals we hope they become. However, online learning is most effective in brief stints. So, with just a few hours of concentration, they can return to doing whatever it is they love.
Guiding teenagers through the complexities of high school to ensure they land at their dream university can be overwhelming. Thus, relying on expert support makes sense. Virtual summer school allows you to relax, knowing that your child is making the consistent progress needed to reach the next step in their education.
Online tutoring for weak spots
We can't be good at everything. One-on-one online tutoring in specific subjects during vacation time is an excellent way to address areas where a student might be lagging. Just two hours a week of high-quality, focused study with an exceptional teacher, outside of regular school hours, can significantly improve grades.
If your child needs support with admissions essays for 2022, there's no such thing as starting too early! Online tutoring for essays proves highly effective. Students can outline their admissions strategy with their tutor, submit draft essays, and then receive expert feedback. This process enables them to produce a polished and pertinent final product.

Improving SAT Scores is simple
If your child has ambitions to attend a US university, good SAT scores are, of course, essential. Online study is effective for consolidating learning, and SAT Diagnostic tests – timed, live test papers – are an excellent method to gauge their standing. Paired with expert guidance and personalized feedback, this approach is tried and true for continually improving their scores.
