Summer comes with many great things to look forward to...vacations, swimming, warm days and late nights. In between all those amazing experiences, here are three reasons you should consider hiring a summer tutor.
1. For students, summer brings what teachers call 'Summer Slide'. This phenomenon happens when children forget some of what they learned during the school year. Having a tutor keeps the student's mind active and all those concepts fresh. This makes the beginning of the new year much easier for teachers and students.
2. Summer is a great time to get ahead of the game when it comes to academics. A good tutor will be able to introduce new concepts in a relaxed environment. This means less stress and more confidence when these concepts are refined in the classroom.
3. If your child had trouble during the previous school year, summer is a wonderful time to revisit those subjects and get back on track. Most of what children learn in school is cumulative...it is built on the previous years of learning. Catching up gets more difficult the older the child gets.
Summer tutoring has the benefit of one-on-one attention without the stressors of homework and daily classes. Developing a relationship with a tutor now will most definitely help duriing the school year as well.
