Summer Learning 2022!

Be ready for the next school year! We have programs to help students catch up from this year's losses and get ahead over the summer!

To combat the compound losses of "summer brain drain" and eLearning regression that still affects many students, we'll be offering programs this summer which specifically aim to help students return to full-time in-person schooling in the fall.

 

Tuition for each camp is only $360. Family rates may apply.  Days and times subject to change.

 

Call 630-355-1600 or email naperville@gradepowerlearning.com to enroll!

Summer Study Skills Camp – Entering grades 6 and up

Study habits are critical for any student.  Time management, organization, task prioritization: these are the foundational habits of successful people.

Students will work individually and as a group to not only discuss, but also create plans for upcoming goals and tasks in the new semester.  Catch up and keep up with good study skills.


Math Camps - Entering grades 6-10

Build a Solid Foundation

Studies show that students lose the most gains in math over the summer. Furthermore, the remote learning experience has had to either cut or accelerate through certain concepts that are essential for future math classes. Our math boot camp programs identify and fill existing gaps, and can preview upcoming concepts with students to give them more confidence heading into the new school year.

Four Math Boot Camp programs available:

  • Elementary Math Review 1

  • Elementary Math Review 2

  • Introduction to High School Math 1

  • Introduction to High School Math 2

 


College Readiness - Entering grades 11 and up

College is about much more than getting a degree.

 

There are many experiences that students must be ready for. The independence that comes along with the college experience is both liberating and terrifying - many students get a rude awakening when they realize that they must not only balance their school work, social activities, and sports, but also must feed themselves, do their own laundry, advocate for themselves with employers and college officials, among many other things. 

 

Our 20 hour College Readiness 101 camp is designed to be a comprehensive overview of what students need to do to be prepared for college, both in and out of the classroom.

Summer Fun!

Keep an eye out for upcoming announcements about fun summer activities!

 

We’re hoping to host some summer activities for students of all ages.  Movie nights, game nights, tie-dye and cookout, book club, parents’ night out, and more!  

Enrolled students attend free.

What Parents & Students Are Saying

GradePower Learning Naperville Student Earns Perfect PSAT, ACT, and SAT Scores.

It is great to have my daughter coming home excited, happy, and confident in herself and her abilities. It's obviously helping with math and reading, and her confidence has carried over to her history class. She is thrilled that she has 100% in all assignments and quizzes so far!

T.

Dear Alex and Richard, Thank you for your support in helping prepare Derek for the SAT and ACT exams. The lessons he learned from GradePower Learning boosted his scores tremendously. The weekly classes, coupled with the integrated practice tests, simulated the anticipated pace of the official exams. I personally believe that “practice makes perfect,” and Derek mentioned many times how the repetition of questions directly affected his scores (he’s now in the 99th percentile!). Thank you again for providing such a positive impact.

Laura C

I have learned so much at GradePower Learning Center. I came to GradePower Learning when I was 15 years old and I took the ACT for the first time during my sophomore year. The first day I came, Alex told me it is possible and extremely difficult, but if you try hard you can succeed. I came in with a 21 on my ACT. I left with a 31. Now I'll be starting a guaranteed admittance dental program next fall. If it wasn’t for the constant help and attention I received from Alex and the others, I would not be able to achieve this huge feat. The difference between GradePower Learning and any other prep center is that they prioritize your goals as the most important thing and will work on anything to help you achieve those goals. Coming to GradePower Learning has provided me with opportunities for the future that I could have never anticipated!

Alisha A.

Given the numerous options for tutoring and college test prep, we found the staff at GradePower Learning in Naperville to be thoughtful, experienced, and targeted in their approach. They established a relationship with our son from the first day. With the help of Alex and the team, our son’s test scores bolstered his applications such that he received acceptances from his top 3 universities!

Mike C.

Andrew had a very good test day for his second SAT. His R/W score improved to 780 (from 690 last November) and he scored an 800 in math with no questions missed. Thank you for all your work with him!

L.N.

Hey Alex, I just got my ACT scores and wanted to let you know that I got a 33! I was very shocked and grateful when I saw the score. My scores were 35, 31,35, and 31 on English, math, reading, and science, respectively. I wanted to thank you guys so much for helping improve my score from a 27 to a 33. I never would have done so well without the lessons, the packet, and the motivation to practice on my own. I owe you guys a lot, so thank you again. Sincerely, Reva K.

Reva K.

Alex- I was just accepted into Northwestern University. You were a huge part of that. I was able to move my ACT from a 24 to a 34 with you moving it from a 27 to a 34. I am super grateful for the work you guys do at GradePower Learning.

David S

Alex and his tutoring staff take the stress out of the test! My daughter was looking for help in improving her ACT score. She has received individual subject/section help, testing tips, timing advice, copies of practice exams and peace of mind. They provided concrete ways to approach each question and gave her individualized feedback on her performance so she could improve! If you’re willing to do the work and take the advice of the tutors, they can help you! I cannot say enough great things about how easy they have made this process. They are flexible, smart, and they care about your test and your experience. If you want to do your best in any class or on any test, this is the place to go! I’m signing my next child up today!

Joyce B.

Alex with GradePower Learning helped my son to increase his ACT score by 3 points. Alex guided, coached, and communicated with my son during his preparation for this important exam. My son understood he needed to take responsibility and work hard to achieve the results he wanted. Combined efforts of Alex's expertise in the field and my son's work produced a wonderful result. My son got 35 on his ACT. I appreciate Alex with GradePower Learning who helped my son to achieve success.

Ausra

Very happy with the results from GradePower Learning in Naperville. My son's ACT score raised from a 30 before any sessions to a 34 after his tutoring from Alex. Flexible scheduling and easy communication. Would recommend them to friends and family for sure!

Dave

My daughter took PSAT/SAT prep classes at GradePower Learning and improved her scores by over 100 points. She set her goal for the SAT at 1500 and with the help of GradePower learning, she was able to exceed that score and now has a chance at making National Merit Scholar. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend their services.
