Summer Programs Now Enrolling!

See your child’s confidence and love of learning soar!

ONE-ON-ONE SUMMER PROGRAMS
La Jolla LearningWorks’ Summer Learning Programs are all about harnessing the belief in every child’s unlimited potential for growth.  In our one-on-one sessions, we focus on specific academic skills for an individual child to launch into a new school year that will be different than the ones that have come before: enjoyable and successful.

PERSONAL ATTENTION TO ACHIEVE RESULTS
We believe you should know how your child is doing along the way, so you can give the right support at home. Following each session, you will receive a personalized session report on your child’s performance. We offer end-of-summer conferences, so you can see the gains your child made and learn how to continue to support your child through a successful school year in the fall.

2019 Summer Programs – K-12

Our center director will work with you to develop a customized program from the following areas based on your child’s unique background and needs for growth. The following outlines the academic skills we specialize in teaching:

LITERACY FOUNDATIONS
What It’s All AboutEnsure your child’s academic success with our foundational reading program! This program individualizes instruction in phonics, word recognition, decoding, spelling, and vocabulary skills to build a strong foundation for fluent reading and writing.

Students who don’t like to read, struggle with reading fluently and/or spelling, or have a history of difficulty with phonics or dyslexia.
Recommended Frequency: 8 hours/week

WRITING SKILLS
What It’s All About: Knowing where to start is oftentimes the hardest part of writing. We teach students to approach writing as a multi-step process that encourages logical organization of ideas, using strong supporting details, and editing for grammar and spelling.
Who Would Benefit: Students who feel overwhelmed with writing and resist using the writing process to review and revise their work.
Recommended Frequency: 4-8 hours/week

CRITICAL READING
What It’s All AboutReading to learn is the goal of literacy. In this program, students develop reading comprehension strategies, vocabulary knowledge, and critical thinking skills to become highly effective learners. Required summer reading books can be integrated into the student’s program.

Students entering grades 3-12 with weaknesses in reading comprehension or study skills.

EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING + STUDY SKILLS

Strong students utilize their executive function skills to plan ahead, keep track of assignments, and apply effective study strategies. In this summer course, we help students understand their unique learning style and develop effective tools to manage daily life and schoolwork.
