Prepare Your Child for the New School Year With Summer Tutoring

For many students, the school year can seem eternal. The early mornings, the piles of homework, and the stress-inducing exams that they associate with school make the arrival of summer break something to look forward to. Even though summer is supposed to provide a break from the normal school routine, it's important that your child doesn't lose all of their academic involvement over break. One of the best ways to ensure your child stays academically active over the summer is by enrolling them in summer tutoring. Although the end of summer is nearing, keep in mind that it's never too late to enroll your child in tutoring. The Tutoring Center, Long Grove IL can help you get to know some of the benefits of enrolling your child in tutoring this summer.

Catch Up on Missed Lessons

Whether your child missed a lesson due to being absent or by simply being distracted in the classroom, it's important to recognize that a missed lesson can add up to larger issues. Most school lessons build up off of previously learned ones and are the base for future lessons. This means that by missing one day of class, your child may struggle to keep up. By enrolling your child in summer tutoring, you can help ensure that these missed lessons are revisited and learned properly. Not only will your child be able to retain the information better for the new school year, but they will also be more comfortable using this newly acquired information to continue learning in the fall.

Strengthen Weak Areas

Similar to missed lessons, weak areas in a subject can cause your child to struggle as the school year progresses. Sometimes being distracted in the classroom or just not understanding the material and not asking questions can pose a challenge for your child. It's no secret that children who don't understand part of a lesson may not ask questions because they're embarrassed or shy. Summer tutoring can provide a safe space where your child feels more comfortable asking questions. Fewer distractions and more individualized attention during tutoring hours can help ensure that your child addresses the areas that they struggle with. Not only will they catch up academically, but they will also be more confident and eager to learn. It's never too late to enroll your child in tutoring!

Get Ahead in Struggle Areas

Once your child has strengthened their weak areas and caught up to their peers, their work isn't done. Summer tutoring can help your child get ahead in these areas in anticipation of the new school year. If your child struggles in a certain subject, they can use the summer to get ahead and perform better once the new school year starts. By giving your child the benefit of being one step ahead of his or her peers, they will be able to perform better, giving them a boost in confidence and a positive attitude towards learning.

Prepare for Exams

High school students who are preparing for college should have started preparing for college entrance exams. Exams like the ACT and the SAT require months of studying and preparation. Encourage your child to take advantage of the extra free time they have over summer break to prepare for their upcoming exams. While students can do this on their own with the use of study books and online study materials, summer tutoring can also be a great help. By enrolling your child in a tutoring program focused on test preparation, you can be sure your child will dedicate time to studying while also focusing on the right material. A tutor may also have more experience with college applications and college requirements that can help your child be better prepared when it comes time to apply.

Maintain Healthy Routines

Although summer provides a nice and well-deserved break from academic routines, your child should strive to maintain important parts of their school year routine. Maintaining healthy sleep habits and taking part in physical activity every day are important parts of the routine they should maintain. These activities are not only healthy, but they can also make the transition back to school easier on your child. Summer tutoring can help maintain other healthy aspects of their routine. Tutoring classes will keep your child in the habit of learning, completing assignments, and studying, all important aspects of preventing the summer slide. With summer tutoring, you can be sure your child will be better prepared to make the transition back to school in the fall.
