The Houstonian Club Mixes Fitness and Academic Help to Aid Families
The Houstonian Club is thinking outside the box for ways to serve their community during the COVID-19 pandemic through tutoring. The club is offering a solution to parents navigating socially distanced schools, e-learning or a mix of the two, through their Houstonian Club Enrichment Learning Program (HELP).
HELP gives children ages five to 18 extra support by providing tutors in all subject areas to help bridge the gap associated with remote learning.
The Houstonian Club partnered with a Houston-based company, Staying Ahead of the Game, to provide tutors who can help with general questions and test preparation, as well as executive functioning and study skills. Families can also take advantage of fee-based private tutoring at The Houstonian Club.
“We know this academic year is challenging for everyone,” said Kelley Bettis, the club assistant general manager. “We want to make sure we are helping our Houstonian Club families by providing access to top-of-the-line tutors as well as physical fitness options. We hope to make the transition into this school year as easy as possible for children who are doing their best to learn remotely.”
HELP provides the club’s youngest members with educational support and physical fitness options to encourage a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Participants can customize their experience by selecting tutoring support provided by Staying Ahead of the Game, pre-registering for After School Action classes or Teen Fitness classes.
This story is just one example of many ways clubs are stepping up to bridge the gap for schools and parents during the COVID-19 pandemic.
