ABOUT THE CORONA VIRUS AND SUMMER CLASSES
As crummy as this shutdown has been, this is a perfect time to prepare for the SAT and ACT. Given the unreliability of last spring’s school grades and AP scores–and the lack of athletics and other extra-curriculars–solid SAT and ACT scores will be more helpful than ever for this year’s seniors.
I am teaching in-person morning classes this summer but, due to social distancing, seating is extremely limited. I am also teaching evening classes online, and offering a $100 discount for my online students.
I know that kids may not be too jazzed about adding another online class to their workload. But, from talking to many of my students and their parents, it sounds like the problem has more to do with the medium than the message: schools simply weren’t set up to transition to online classes. This isn’t their fault; who could have foreseen this situation? Luckily, I don’t have to deal with the bureaucratic red tape that normal teachers do. I have had no problem teaching my spring and early summer classes online. Yes, I miss the personal contact with the kids but, if anything, my class has been more efficient over the past month. My students have had many hours of quality classroom time online with me–no goofing off or chatting with friends–and are strongly encouraged to send their homework to me before class for detailed feedback and revision. So, if the online option works best for you, please don’t hesitate to enroll.
