The research is in:
Kids can lose up to 2.5 months of progress in language arts and in math if they don’t keep learning over the summer. This is what we call the “Summer Slide.”
Students who let that slide happen are at a big disadvantage when school starts up again.
Thankfully, setting your child up with both accountability and fun yet effective learning activities over the summer not only prevents the Summer Slide, but can keep them progressing so that they’re ahead of the curve come September.
Our summer tutoring program is designed to do exactly that!
Another thing we know:
Spreading learning over a longer period of time improves understanding and memory.
But when left to their own devices, our kids tend to push their summer homework packets and reading assignments until the last possible minute – defeating the purpose of those assignments in the first place.
Instead, our tutors help middle and high school students develop, and stick to, a well-structured plan for completing their math and reading assignments over the summer, without the last-minute rush to get them done days (hours even) before school starts up again.
This way, they get the work done on time, and actually benefit from the assignments, rather than just complete them for a checkmark.
With vacations, camps, and friends, before you know it, August is here and summer break is rapidly coming to a close.
