As we head into summer with a great need for rest, relaxation, and a healthy dose of sun, it is important to consider how your student will spend his or her summer months. As soon as the last school bell rings, students grab their backpacks and race out the door-- typically leaving all thoughts of Shakespeare's plays and quadratic equations behind. And what happens next? Sometimes, it's camp or a summer job. But more often, it is a lot of TV watching, video games, going out with friends, and avoiding anything that may have to do with school. In addition to the usual summer distractions, the pandemic has added even more stress to student's academics. With virtual learning overtaking this past school year, students and parents alike feel as if they're falling behind. During a normal school year, research shows that students can lose up to 30% of their academic skills over the summer, and the possibilities for lost capabilities only increase with the pandemic and virtual learning. Does this mean your child is doomed to fail? Of course not. But those eight weeks in conjunction with the pandemic can surely impact a student's readiness for the fall.
At Homework Helpers, our summer learning programs offer students the opportunity to proceed at a more leisurely pace, work with less pressure, and focus on one subject at a time. We have something for every student-- whether they need a refresher, want to learn something new, or get a head start on the next year! This relaxed style, combined with our tutors’ passion and enthusiasm, is ideal for reigniting a student's love of learning. It gives them the freedom to learn at their own pace, and in doing so increases their confidence and helps them feel more prepared at the beginning of the next school year—setting them up for success right from the start!
