New school year and new HQ for tutoring organisation
An organisation offering tutoring to students has started the school year in its newly renovated headquarters.
Peak Potential Bermuda, which launched in 2011, completed work on its new 1,200sq ft Scholars of Bermuda learning centre on King Street, Hamilton, this summer.
A spokesman for the organisation said: “Scholars offers convenient and flexible in-centre and virtual tutoring programmes that are designed not only to boost students' grades but also to improve their confidence.
“With personalised programmes that support the individualised learning style of every child, Scholars teachers focus on making lessons engaging, effective and fun.”
Peak Potential Bermuda was founded by educator Cyril Butterfield and has offered tutoring and mentoring to support more than 1,000 students.
The spokesman added: “The pandemic caused perhaps the most challenging times for the effective delivery of education in our island's history.
“Research studies have shown that at the start of the 2021-2022 school year, students were four to five months behind in English and maths studies and that students in low-income neighbourhoods tended to suffer even worse learning setbacks.”
