After School Tutoring for Junior High Students ( 7th - 8th )

The middle years are a turning point. While the big signs of failure and success usually don’t crop up until high school, experts say that a child’s direction is often set by the choices that get made in 7th and 8th grade. The increasingly difficult subject material, homework, and tests, along with the complex schedules, can frustrate many students. Through our advanced, customized curriculum, we ensure that your child masters reading, writing, and algebra with strong study habits. PSA’s expert teachers will motivate your child to enjoy learning and become independent learners who are ready for high school.
