When the school year ends, many students are usually occupied during the long summer period with sporting and music activities, play dates and holidays. When summer ends and the kids go back to school they often realise they have forgotten much of what they learned the previous year. They are experiencing a phenomenon called “summer learning loss”.
In fact, studies have shown that over the summer, children lose 2 months of their progress in Maths from the prior school year. For those that were already struggling in Maths, this means that they will start the next school year even further disadvantaged. And it’s not just Maths. Overall, children lose an average of 1 month of learning in other subjects during the summer.
Imagine if an athlete completely stopped training for nearly 2 months of the year. You would expect that when they returned to their sport they would experience a lag in performance. The brain is no different. It needs to be exercised on a consistent basis.
At Tutor Doctor we’ll customise a programme based on your summer goals. We start with a Free Educational Consultation to gather all the information we need to be able to match you with the ideal tutor from our portfolio. Your tutor will come to your home and work with your child on the academic skills targeted . Your child still gets a summer break as sessions are typically 2 or 3 times a week depending on family choice and the goals established. So you can keep your children learning but also enjoy your summer too- what could be better than that!
Give your child a jump start this summer and help them start the new academic year with confidence!
Core Belief - Everyone can learn.
