With high school winding down, your child might be dreaming of a long summer vacation filled with video games and mindless activities. However, if your child is a junior or senior, then summer vacation may be the best time for him to start studying for the SAT and ACT exams. Here are a few reasons why you should encourage your child to start studying over the summer:
Summer vacation means a few months of school free days. Since your child will have more time on his hands, it is easy to find time to study for the ACT and SAT exam. It is also much easier to find a 4 hour chunk of free time to take a full length practice test during the summer months. If finding time to work with a tutor over the school year is too complicated, take advantage of the freer summer months. Summer is a great time to work with a tutor for ACT and SAT prep. The Tutoring Center offers ACT and SAT exam prep tutoring over a variety of times and days to meet your schedule.
Let’s face it, most high school students are overbooked and busy during the school year. Many students zip around from one activity to the next juggling a heavy school load with extra curricular activities along with friends and family. During the school year, your child has homework and sports practices on his mind. You child will have more time to focus on just studying for the exam without being pulled in a million other directions.
Keeps your child’s mind fresh
After months of class free days, it is easy for your child to forget some of what he learned in the previous school year. This can be devastating for a child because the last few years of high school are often the most challenging. It is easy for a child to fall behind in their studies over the summer. Once a child falls behind in school, it can be very challenging to catch back up during the school year. By encouraging studying over the summer, you are helping your child form life long study habits.
Preparing for the ACT and SAT can seem like an overwhelming task. However, the summer can be to your child’s advantage. Working with a tutor a few times a week can make huge difference in your child's study habits and confidence with regards to the ACT and SAT.
