Summer Tutorial Sessions

Intensive one-on-one sessions in the Orton-Gillingham Approach for Literacy, Essential Essay Skills, or Test Preparation & Admissions Support.

Dates & times

Summer Tutorial Sessions are offered June 3 through August 30, 2019.

Each one-on-one session is one hour long. It is recommended that children attend ten sessions. Minimum attendance is five sessions. Speak to the BFDC to arrange a plan that fits your child’s schedule.


Early Literacy with the Orton-Gillingham Approach
Suitable for children 5-12 years
Synthetic phonics is the best way to acquire early literacy skills. Working with the Orton-Gillingham approach over the summer you can keep your kid’s reading, writing, and spelling skills up. The approach is designed for working with dyslexic students, but any kid that needs a leg up in literacy can stand to benefit. 
Essential Essay Skills: Persuasive, Expository and Narrative Writing
Suitable for children in Middle School to University level
Essay writing is easy to learn but difficult to master. There’s always more to learn with style, structure, and economy of words. These lessons will give students tools, tips, and tricks to put them on the path to becoming master wordsmiths. 
Test Preparation (SAT, ACT, A Levels / GCSE, etc.) & Admissions Support
Suitable for children aged 14-20 years
Standardized testing and admissions applications are the unavoidable hurdles at the end of high school. We’re here for students needing help on how best to jump that hurdle. Good test preparation goes far beyond cramming content into the brain, and requires understanding things like how tests are scores, how to manage your time, and how to properly dissect questions.
