Are you falling behind in the race to academic success? Over the summer, most students lose 20-30% of the academic gains they made over the previous term. Don’t fall behind this year, ask about our summer tutoring programmes.
With help from our academic coaches you can get better grades. You don’t have to interrupt your summer because we come to your home, and at a time that is convenient so you catch up and get ahead.
When the school year ends, many students are occupied during the long summer months with day camps, sports and games, meeting friends and foreign holidays. Then summer ends and the children go back to school and realise they have forgotten much of what they learned the previous year! They are experiencing a phenomenon called “summer learning loss”.
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.
In fact, studies have shown that over the summer, children lose more than 2.6 months of maths skills learned in the prior school year. For those who were already struggling in maths, this means that they will start the next school year even further disadvantaged; and it’s not just maths. Overall, children lose an average of 1 month of learning in other subjects during the summer.
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 usually only once or twice a week for an hour or so 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!
Here are a few ideas:
At Tutor Doctor we’ll customise a programme based on your summer goals. We start with a free consultation to gather all the information we need to be able to match you with the best tutor from our roster. Once matched, the tutor will come to you and work around your summer schedule so you can keep your kids learning but also enjoy your summer too! What could be better than that!
