Over the summer school holidays, Educate Tutoring will be running a series of short, intensive programs that are designed to combat potential challenges brought about by the transition into a new school year. These programs offer students a chance to re-familiarise themselves with their studies after the summer break, and to help them enter the school year with confidence.
