Well, we have been back to remote learning full time again for a couple of weeks now. If your student is a Migrant student, they are eligible to have tutoring with me. Just call or email me: I will set up a private Zoom for whenever it works best for both of us and help your student with getting caught up or with a difficult lesson.

Hello McNeil Migrant students and families!

I hope you are starting to settle into a routine of being able to get your schoolwork done and still have time for fun and the outdoors!

I also have two tutoring Zoom sessions already going, one from 10-11 a.m. and one from 2-3 p.m, Monday through Friday. Check the blog posts below for invitations to join in one of those!
