USE THE SUMMER TO CATCH UP
AND GET AHEAD FOR THE FALL.
on't let your child fall behind this summer! Every summer students happily trade in their books and backpacks for flip flops and bathing suits. And, to be honest, we don't blame them! BUT, this is also the time of year that parents often dread because for many children the summer months can be a time of boredom filled with hours of video games, Netflix and other mind numbing activities.
This lapse in learning can also have a negative impact on a child’s knowledge retention and readiness for the following school year. In fact, research has shown that on average students lose anywhere from 20-30% of their school year gains. After all that work, don't let progress go to waste over the summer!
Our ultimate summer goal is to make sure each student continues to keep their mind going, while simultaneously building their skills, confidence and the readiness to tackle the school year ahead. As always, our tutoring and summer programs are offered in a positive atmosphere and led by tutors who want to make learning FUN and EASY!
