Summer is the Perfect Time for Tutoring

While we certainly relate summer’s hot weather with lazy days and fun in the sun; it is also a great time to improve academic skills.  Summer is a wonderful time for a student to take advantage of the extra time in their schedule to learn and practice new skills. Some students may need to review last year’s school work while others may want to get a head start for the new school year.

Talk to your child about the importance of tutoring during the summer and its many advantages. I remember going to a student’s home several years ago on a hot summer day; the student had no idea that I was coming, and she had planned on going to the beach with her friends that day. Her friends waited in the yard (all ready to leave for the beach) while she worked with me. Needless to say, it was a very long hour! Talk to your child and prepare them for the tutor’s visit, reminding them of the long term rewards of tutoring and of improving their academic skills.
