Guide: Georgetown tutors to help prevent the 'summer slide'

It was an unusual year for learning for many students.

The end of the 2019-20 school year was spent on Zoom and Google Classroom, followed by summer break, which led many educators to fear students’ learning retention would slide more than normal.

Then in-person classes for Georgetown ISD students was delayed for three weeks at the start of the 2020-21 school year before families had the opportunity to select in-person or virtual learning for their students.

While the true ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic on student learning is not yet known, these area tutors are working to help students improve on their learning skills. And with a new summer’s approach, each offers an opportunity for students to work on different skills.
