Houston Tutorial Association (HTA) offers students their study skills strategies course, writing course, intensive note taking and summer reading knock-out course during our summer programs. The program directors and staff collaborate with our summer team and teachers in order to adapt their programs and customize lessons to support our curriculum. Students comment that they were glad they took the course and would refer it to their friends. Classes are small so kids get individual attention, parents get tips to help hold students accountable and and the end of course assessments return very favorable each year.”
