Summer Special – eLearning just $49/Hour!

Summer is finally here and students are off and running, swimming, biking, and any other number of relaxing activities. But what about learning? Even though school is out it is important that students still engage their brains. At the Stern Center, we know how important summertime can be if taken as an opportunity to keep growing.

Thanks to an anonymous donor, we are able and excited to offer new students, not currently enrolled at the Stern Center, online eLearning at a reduced cost of just $49/hour during this summer through August 29, 2017. Students in grades 4 through 12 will receive the same high-quality instruction as in person, high schoolers can prepare for the SAT/ACT, and students in high school and college can receive the academic coaching they need for greater success in school!

Being tutored at the Stern Center not only improved my reading skills tremendously but it also changed that mindset.
