No matter what the grade level, all students can benefit from a basic tune up of writing, math and any other skills that may atrophy over the summer. The focus of this course will be on basic review of the last year's curriculum in preparation for a solid start in the new grade in September.
Based on the previous grade, students will be given a solid review of math and writing skills from the previous year to address any deficits present and to ensure that the student enters the new grade with a solid background needed to succeed. Ongoing support for the new grade in September will be available at the discretion of the student/parent.

ABOUT THE TEACHER
My name is Dhana Matthews and I have been teaching for 20 years. I live in the greater Vancouver area (Delta) and love teaching the wide variety of students who come through my classroom every year. I love the energy students bring to the education system and I learn more every year as I adapt to the unique needs of learners. In my free time I love spending time with my son in his many activities and enjoy our work with rescue animals.
