My Learning Springboard is thrilled to partner for our 6th summer with Camp Greylock, the Northeast’s preeminent residential summer sports camp for boys. For the past four summers, campers ranging from grades 3+, including Rovers, have worked with private tutors on the weekends in order to sharpen academic skills, prepare for upcoming tests, or complete summer academic work, which may be enrichment, remediation, or required school work. Test preparation has included ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, ACT, SAT subject tests and New York State Testing. Rising seniors have also gotten a jumpstart on college applications and essays.
My Learning Springboard is a multidisciplinary educational consulting firm and learning concierge® service specializing in admissions consulting, test preparation, private tutoring, enrichment teaching, and special education services. Our main office is located in Tribeca with services across the New York City and Washington, D.C. metro areas as well as Palm Beach County, Florida. We partner with families in other locations across the United States and internationally through virtual consultation and e-tutoring.
Since students are often more relaxed at camp, this summer enrichment or remediation has worked out very smoothly without losing out on the camp experience in any way! As one third grader said to his reading teacher last summer, “Can I stay longer to read in the Learning Lodge? It’s nice and relaxing here!”
Our team at My Learning Springboard will work with each family to coordinate a customized program for their camper. One-on-one tutoring is scheduled on the weekend in order to avoid any conflicts with Intercamps, and since the camp schedule rotates on a weekly basis, campers never have to consistently miss the same sports activity because of tutoring. We’ve never had a camper complain about missing a favored activity, and we would adapt the schedule as necessary if a need arose!
