When the school year ends, many students are occupied during the long summer months with day camps, swimming, play dates and vacation. Then summer ends and the kids go back to school and realize they have forgotten much of what they learned in school the previous year? They are experiencing a phenomenon called “summer learning loss”.

In fact, studies have shown that over the summer, kids lose more than 2.6 months of math skills learned in the prior school year. For kids that were already struggling in math, this means that they will start the next school year even further disadvantaged. And it’s not just math. Overall, kids 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 typically 2 or 4 times a week for 1 hour 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!
