Summer Tutoring
Summer is just around the corner and kids are thinking about pools, sleeping in, and fun. Oh yea, and don’t forget tutoring! It can be a great addition to all of their fun activities.  Checkout these 6 reasons your child will benefit from summer tutoring.

1. Increased Confidence

Has your child ever demonstrated doubt when it comes to their ability to do well in school? Has your child received poor grades on a recent  report card? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, summer tutoring can provide him/her with strategies to increase understanding and improve grades. These strategies will help to improve your child’s confidence and help them start the upcoming school year on a good foot.

2. Defeat Boredom

A structured schedule can help children avoid boredom.  Don’t forget to incorporate learning into their summer structure to set them up for an easier transitition back into school life this fall.

3. Test Prep

Many juniors and seniors will be taking the SAT and ACT during the upcoming school year. Summer is the perfect time to refresh all of the content necessary for success on these exams. Trying to squeeze test prep. in during the school year can be extremely stressful for students.

4. Prevent Summer Learning Loss

Research shows that all students experience knowledge loss over the summer months when they don’t participate in learning activities.  Practicing skills learned in previous grades can help cement your child’s understanding and keep it fresh for the upcoming school year. In addition to refreshing previously learned skills, your child can get a jump start on the upcoming school year’s content.

5. Learn Valuable Problem Solving Strategies

The school year is crowded with so much information that many important skills are sometimes given less than adequate time for learning and understanding. The newly adopted Common Core State Standards include the Standards for Mathematical Practice which are sometimes overlooked. Summer tutoring is an excellent time to learn and practice these standards.

6. Ease Transition Between Schools

Transitions from elementary to middle school and middle to high school can be extremely difficult for students. In addition to learning a new school and making new friends, students most likely will be learning a new set of  expectations while also learning content.  All of this can have a dramatic effect on grades and understanding. Summer tutoring can be used to pre-teach your child upcoming content and strategies to implement during the transition.

    This is some really great information for any parent considering summer tutoring. I’ve been looking into it for my son, and I hadn’t ever thought about how much is lost over the summer. But it makes perfect sense that without practice those skills can wane a little bit. Thanks so much for writing, this was very helpful!

    Thanks for sharing this! My son Jacob has been suffering from low math grades, and I want to raise them as soon as possible. It sounds like sending him to a summer school for math would be a great idea. I don’t want him to stop trying in school because of one hard year in math!

    I completely agree with you. The benefits of continuing a child’s education over the summer are huge! Before I had little ones, I tutored during the summers too (when I wasn’t teaching) and the best part was watching their confidence grow :).
