How Your Child Can Benefit From Tutoring Over the Summer Break

School is officially out for summer, and our kids have been enjoying some well-earned rest over the past couple of weeks. However, studies have shown that during the long summer break period, scores in standardized tests can drop significantly, indicating a drastic loss of knowledge. This is known as ‘Summer Learning Loss’ and is thought to affect a large percentage of school students in the United States. So, while allowing your children some time to relax and wind down after a stressful school year is definitely beneficial, too much of a break from learning can have quite serious consequences. In today’s blog, The Tutoring Center, Torrance CA would like to give you some more information about the benefits of tutoring in Torrance CA before heading into the next school year.

Maintain Good Habits

Many young people, and particularly adolescents find waking up early to go to school every day extremely challenging. They can find the amount of time that they are required to be at school quite overwhelming and exhausting. Once they are no longer required to get up early and attend school each day, however, the idea of spending their day on the couch is very appealing. If given free rein over the schedule during the vacations, these students will naturally be up late into the night and sleep for the entire morning. As adults, with jobs and responsibilities, our children will not be able to do this. Maintaining a schedule during the vacations helps to keep young people from becoming completely nocturnal! It also teaches them about responsibility. Tutoring in Torrance CA is a great option, as it provides some routine, structure and direction, without being as intense and demanding as a normal term-time schedule. The Tutoring Center, Torrance CA offers a great range of professional services, with schedules to suit everyone. Call today at 310 530 5377 for more information or to book a free consultation.

Take Advantage of Extra Free-Time

The academic system in the United States is world-renowned and extremely demanding. During term time, new content is covered almost every day across an extensive range of subjects. Content becomes progressively more complex each semester, and if a student struggles to get their head around what they have learned one month, they might find themselves completely out of their depth the following month. As the system is so intensive, there is often no time during term-time to go over more difficult concepts and ensure that everyone is comfortable and confident with them. For this reason, tutoring services during the summer vacations are the perfect opportunity to go back and reinforce any content they may have missed from the previous nine months. Children can go at their own pace and without the pressure to keep up with their classmates. This can help to build their confidence as well as expanding their subject-specific knowledge. Tutoring services are designed to ensure that your child goes into the next school year fully achieving their grade-level competencies, and feeling confident and optimistic about their school performance. A further advantage to reinforcing learned information during tutoring classes is that a child feels comfortable during a one-on-one tutoring session to ask questions which they may not have felt comfortable asking their teacher publicly. This can help to clean up any small instances of misinformation which may be affecting a greater understanding of a lesson.

Combat Summer Learning Loss

By keeping your child’s brain stimulated academically for a couple of hours per day, you can stave off the impact of Summer Learning Loss and help them to retain all the information that they have learned over the past nine months, as well as progressing even further academically. Key subjects like math and science are often the ones in which students suffer a higher proportion of Summer Learning Loss, so it’s really important to try and avoid this, particularly if your child or children have struggled with these subjects in the past. The Tutoring Center, Torrance CA uses one-on-one instruction with targeted programs to ensure that students are challenged and stimulated academically while feeling relaxed, confident, and even enjoying themselves.
