Gesher Summer Programming

Join your friends at Gesher for some summer fun! Starting in May, we will have a series of workshops available to help beat summer slump and keep kids and teens’ brains engaged during their break. Workshops include Tutor Tuesday, Executive Functioning, and Camp Gesher. We can’t wait to see you this summer!

Tutor Tuesday – In Person!

Every Tuesday from 9am-4pm our Gesher Education Team will be in the office ready to work with your student(s) in any area they may need help in to prepare for the next school year.

Each one-on-one session is $30 and includes pre-work to gather materials focusing on your students educational needs, 30 minutes in-person with a Gesher teacher, and follow-up report for parents. [If Tuesday doesn’t work in your schedule, you can choose another day of the week and preferred time for a Gesher teacher to help your student online.]

For more information, and to register, email the Education team at

We are proud to partner with Shemesh Camp at the J. If your student(s) are in camp, Gesher teachers can bring them to the Gesher office for the tutoring session, returning your child to camp after tutoring. Note: You will need to complete a Shemesh Camp at the J form giving permission for a Gesher teacher to sign-out/sign-in your child aka the “blue form.”
