Good afternoon MRA parents! I'm offering tutoring over the summer for my Clarkia kiddos and wanted to see if any Huckleberry or Alder parents would like to get a little extra math, reading, or writing support. :) You can either do a private session or a two student group session. You can sign up for either in-person or online.

Here is a list of what I still have available starting the week of June 16th. Goes all summer long. Tuesday Virtual or In-Person -$30-40/hr 10:00AM Wednesday Virtual Only - $30/hr 8AM, 9AM, 10AM, 11AM Thursday In-Person Only Huckleberry and Alder Students - $40/hr 9AM, 10AM, 11AM, 12PM, 1PM,2PM, 3PM
