When the school year ends, many students are occupied during the long summer months with day camps, swimming, play dates and vacation. Then summer ends and the kids go back to school and realize they have forgotten much of what they learned in school the previous year? They are experiencing a phenomenon called “summer learning loss”.
In fact, studies have shown that over the summer, kids lose more than 2.6 months of math skills learned in the prior school year. For kids that were already struggling in math, this means that they will start the next school year even further disadvantaged. And it’s not just math. Overall, kids lose an average of 1 month of learning in other subjects during the summer.
Imagine if an athlete completely stopped training for 2-3 months of the year. You would expect that when they returned to their sport they would experience a lag in performance. The brain is no different. It needs to be exercised.
A tutor will come to your home and work with your child on the academic skills targeted at the Free Educational Consultation. Your child still gets a summer break as sessions are typically 2 or 4 times a week for 1 hour depending on family choice and goals established at the consult. Give your child a jump start this summer so in September s/he can start school with confidence!
Many high school students take distance education or summer school courses to get classes knocked off or complete with a better grade. Completing a full year of curriculum in a short period of time can be a real challenge. Our tutors can provide the needed support to get through material in a short period of time and understand course content that is going at a fast pace.
We believe that learning should continue year-round. Spend time relaxing in the summer, but take advantage of the opportunity to catch up, get ahead or refresh some rusty skills with our summer tutoring programs. Start the new school year with confidence instead of anxiety. As well as regular one-to-one tutoring, Tutor Doctor offers the following options in the summer:
Many students study in summer school, either to retake a course in which they did not do well, or to pre-take a course in a higher grade. Summer school is very fast-paced and material is covered with little chance for review. Tutor Doctor can increase your results through regular support during summer school. A tutor will answer all the questions you could not ask in class and fill in the gaps in your understanding.
More and more students are making use of online school programs as an alternative to classroom learning throughout the year but especially during the summer. Regular tutoring from a Tutor Doctor tutor provides the level of support the student does not get since studying is primarily a solitary activity. Your tutor will help you to plan your time, understand the course material and be accountable for sticking to the plan.
Confidence speeds learning. We believe a student starting a subject with some prior knowledge of the curriculum will perform at a much higher level than if every concept presented in class is brand new. Tutor Doctor can work with a student to explore the curriculum during 4-8 weeks of summer study. This approach works for any subject, but lends itself especially to Math and Sciences.
The transition from Grade 7 to Grade 8 is more stressful than most adults realize. This can be a turning point for students who may grow to become leaders and achievers, or who may struggle to adapt to a less nurturing school environment. Tutor Doctor offers a program combining elements of regular curriculum study with study skills development pertaining to independent study.
