Building your 7th grader’s skills and motivation

Life with a 7th grader can be a daily roller coaster — from crazy schedules, to growth spurts, to complex, every-changing social lives. And let’s face it: Keeping up with school reading is not always your teen’s top priority. It’s a good thing you’ve got their back … and we’ve got yours. Our 7th grade reading tutors make learning personal by assessing and targeting exactly what your teen needs to excel. Best of all? With engaging technology like iPads® and a fun rewards system, your 7th grader will actually look forward to reading tutoring. Crazy, but true!
