2023 Summer Classes

Mr. G will be teaching two types of summer classes this year: a once-a-week class held on Saturdays and week-long intensive-writing classes. Both will be held in June & July. (No classes will be held in August.)

The classes will be for students entering 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grades in the fall. (Those currently in 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade.)

Mr. G will not be teaching entering 4th graders over the summer (although he will be teaching 4th graders in the fall.)

A non-refundable $50 deposit (credited toward tuition) is required to secure a spot.

Saturday Classes (June/July)

Over the course of this five-session set of classes, students will read a book, learn vocabulary, and write three compositions: a literary analysis essay, a research simulation task essay, and a narrative.

Classes will be taught on the following Saturdays: June 24, July 8, 15, 22 & 29. (Students will have Sat., July 1st, off.)

The schedule is as follows (all times are Eastern Standard Time):

Intensive Writing Classes

(June & July)


Five sets of intensive-writing classes will be taught over the summer. They will be four-classes (four consecutive days) long, featuring four 1.5-hour sessions.

The entire focus of the classes will be on writing only. With the exception of the "Three Compositions" classes, each one-week class will cover one type of writing. (See below for the types covered.)

The "Three Compositions" classes will give students practice in responding to the three types of prompts found on the New Jersey Student Learning Assessments: the narrative, the literary analysis essay, and the research simulation task essay.

In all intensive-writing classes, students will read and study sample compositions and receive detailed feedback from Mr. G. They will also be asked to revise and improve their compositions as necessary.

The intensive-writing sessions are as follows (all times are Eastern Standard Time):
