But it's still better than summer school.

“By far and away, we're having more people attend intersession than summer school,” Davis said.

Teachers like that they can offer intensive help throughout the school year, not just at the end.

The more intimate setting can benefit some students who are shy or afraid to answer incorrectly, Davis said. The smaller class size can be a low-risk environment for them.

“They get a little bit more engagement,” Davis said. “The students that always know the answers aren't there, so they have an opportunity to shine.”

The class can also improve the bond between teacher and student.

“That kind of relationship develops into one that serves us all well,” Davis said.
