Fall classes are just weeks away, and we are still closely monitoring district updates on classroom guidelines. It’s not clear yet what each district is deciding, but we are here to support them during this time with whatever choice they make. Whether or not schools allow scholars back in the classroom, we are here to provide the best educational support possible through our services.
With our employees’ and students’ best interests in mind, Gibson Educational Services has made the decision to offer mostly online services for the 2020-2021 school year. We will still be able to offer all of our services and provide the same quality instruction, and there is no cause for concern in being able to deliver this. We are taking extensive measures to train our employees in online instruction and technology and being as proactive as we can to prepare for the school year.
This fall we will be offering a variety of virtual services, like Virtual Homework Support/ACT/SAT Prep for 1-12 graders, and a Virtual Book Club. The Virtual Book Club will begin in October 2020 and will focus on 3 series – Harry Potter, Goosebumps, and American Girls. This will run for 6 weeks before we pick another book for Spring. When each scholar completes their 6 week book club, they will receive a $10 Pizza Hut gift card and certificate for their efforts. Additionally, we will be offering Tutoring and Minecraft beginning September 7, 2020. Scholars will be expected to participate in 2 hours each week to complete their school assignments before receiving an incentive code to a top rated Minecraft club which has more than 500 members.
Remote instruction is still worthwhile, although it may look and feel different. With our vast experience, we have decided this is the best way to practice social distancing measures while giving students’ the attention they need in their educational pursuits. We want to assure you that our tutors will not falter in our services and will go above and beyond in your scholars’ remote learning.
If you make the informed decision to have in-person tutoring for your scholar, we can provide these services to you as well. This fall, we will be providing in-person tutoring for Express Cheer. By taking extreme caution in our sanitization, social distancing, and other safe practices, you can rest assured that your scholar is safe with our tutors. Whether you choose remote or in-person tutoring, know that safety is our top priority in your child’s education.
We appreciate your understanding and encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. As supporters of education, we take our jobs seriously and would never jeopardize another scholar’s education out of convenience.
