FYI: Core Tutoring

For families who are looking for tutoring help throughout the year or during the summer, Core Tutoring is available in London: They use the same structured literacy approach that the school has been using for reading and writing instruction over the last few years. And offer week-long literacy camps during the summer which some parents might be interested in for their children.
