Summer is such a great time for relaxation, discovery and adventure. It is also an important time to keep the minds of children engaged and constantly learning. Tutoring and enrichment are excellent ways to keep your child’s mind stimulated and challenged. Why is it so important for students to have tutoring or academic enrichment over the summer? Studies show that students lose an average of 2 to 3 months of learning loss during the summer. (Imagine if your child is already behind academically. This gap will grow larger without any support!) Read on to learn the benefits of summer tutoring and enrichment.
1. Build A Solid Foundation : Summer tutoring is a great way to build a solid foundation in areas of general weakness. Does your child have a strong background in addition and subtraction but struggles with problem solving? Summer tutoring is a great way to build this area of weakness and make it an area of strength. They will begin the next school year with more confidence and motivation!
2. Review and Master: Summer tutoring is an opportunity to review last year’s material and master it for next year. This “review and master” approach helps build the gap between the two grades. It also gives your child an advantage and leverage for success for the upcoming year!
3. Enrich and Ignite Passion: Does your child have a passion for astronomy or animals? Summer enrichment is an excellent way to enrich and support your child’s passion for other subject areas. During the school year it is difficult to go explore these other areas of interest. However, summer enrichment can be a great way to enhance your child’s passion and to build their interest for learning new things!
Summer is a wonderful opportunity to discover and explore new areas of learning for your child. Give your child an advantage for the upcoming school year with summer tutoring or enrichment. Summer tutoring will give your child the confidence, motivation and excitement for the upcoming school year!
