Revised Plan for the Summer of 2020 / Covid-19

A Distance Learning Model to Keep Everyone Healthy and Safe!

We've adapted our class for this summer, moving to a distance learning model to keep everyone healthy and safe! We've also added an additional week and a third "Enrichment/Review" day to each week. We know it's been a complicated year and we would like to help students be prepared for school in whatever form it arrives this fall.

Students must have access to Zoom, agree to have cameras on, and download the Kindle app onto one of their devices so that they can access one of the two prep books we'll use. We'll ship hard copies of the second book to each student upon receipt of registration and fee.

As of right now, we are not sure we can record class meetings because of privacy issues. We'll research those issues and let you know!

2020 Schedule & Calendar

10 am - 12 noon, Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday
Tuesday, July 7, through Thursday, August 13, 2020
All class meetings are held via Zoom.

Tuesday/Thursday:   SAT/ACT prep
Wednesday:   Review/Enrichment

Teachers: Steve and Helene Sughrue
Teaching Assistants: Ollie Sughrue (Harvard '20) & Owen Sughrue (Harvard '23)

Steve and Helene will teach the class and, to ensure individualized attention for all students, Ollie and Owen will help run Breakout Rooms (small-group practice sessions) in our Zoom classrooms.

We limit enrollment because we believe students benefit from small classes. To keep class size down, we divide the full group in half, assigning one half to work with Steve on Math/Science and the other to work with Helene on Verbal/English first, switching halfway through our time together.
