Curriculum for all Extra Practice
The curriculum that I use for my tutoring students is based on the Common core state standards of Illinois. I utilize the SPECTRUM books as well as develop my own spin on concepts that help aid students in their individual learning styles. You can expect students to have Google classroom for some activities. Students may need a Gmail account to fully utilize the activities that are provided. (I will be willing to create one for students or use parent emails if that is preferred.)
All students will be required at the beginning of each session to set different types of goals. This will aid in the learning of study skills and organization.

All students will participate in a reward chart. This will be a way for students to become motivated as well as track goals. Goals are an important part of learning. This will also lower the stress that learning brings on. Students will work towards rewards such as Gameday, A treasure chest item, a book, a gift certificate, and more.

Meeting Places
All sessions will be held in public places. I have reserved private work areas at the Chatham Public library. These rooms are on rotation, it may not be the same room every time. If an alternative meeting place is needed parents will be informed as soon as possible and a different meeting place will be assigned. 

Assigned Times will vary depending on each student. Typical meeting times for Summer are weekday Mornings From 8am-11am. If these times don’t work for you alternatives can be discussed.   


Sessions will NOT be held on the following dates for holidays in 2019-
Personal Holiday- June 16-22
Independence day- July 4th.
Personal Holiday- July 7-13
Final sessions for the Summer Program will be held on the week of July 28th- (Tentative)

Canceling Sessions 
If your child is ill or has a conflict with a session, please let me know as soon as possible. We will reschedule sessions for a later date.
