An Open Letter to Students and Parents: A Discussion of COVID-19 and Its Impact on Making the Grade, LLC.

Dear Making the Grade LLC Community:

The past couple weeks have thrown us all into a whirlwind of change with effects of COVID

-19 (the Coronavirus) in full-swing. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is urging for people to implement the concept of “social distancing” – defined as “deliberately increasing the physical space between people to avoid spreading illness” by Johns Hopkins University  – leading to schools closing or moving online to minimize the impact of the pandemic. We urge you all to stay informed by talking with your doctor and check in for updates from the World Health Organization and other reputable sources on what you can do to keep you and your community healthy.

For a brief summary of social distancing and “flattening the curve”, feel free to check out the Washington Post article here.

With the new policy and social changes implemented, students have to adapt to the ever-changing education landscape in order perform well in their course and successfully prepare for the collegiate and professional studies of their choosing. At Making the Grade LLC, we wish to continue our mission in supporting our aspiring learners, all while maximizing their health and safety as we navigate through this situation.

We are continuing to offer in-person tutoring, both at-home and on-site, for the duration of this situation. Furthermore, we also offer online tutoring to accommodate learners during this distancing situation. However, please advise that in order for Making the Grade to optimize its in-person activity, we have to discontinue group tutoring for the intermittent time. Likewise, we ask that if you are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19 (Fever, Cough, Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, etc.), please contact us immediately to either reschedule or switch to online tutoring.

Meanwhile, note that we offer a plethora of online tutoring resources. Online learning can be a fantastic supplement to students’ educational needs, and given the current situation, Making the Grade LLC has been preparing to provide learners with outside educational resources to complement our one-on-one online tutoring sessions comparable to in-person tutoring.

Regardless of the environment, our mission is to guide students through their educational journey will always be our top priority. We are looking forward to when the coronavirus is contained by our medical experts and life can resume as typical. Until then, our tutoring network is here to help learners continue achieving their academic goals and pick back up on their destined trajectories.

Warmest Regards,

Ms. Jenny,
CEO Making the Grade, LLC
