Combat the Summer Slide
Summertime is a great time to relax and reset for the next school year that is to come. However, there is a lot of summer learning loss that occurs during this time! According to Oxford Learning, 2.6 months of math skills and 2 months of reading skills are lost over the summer.
Summer Learning Camps
The good news is that providing weekly reading and math activities to your children can help combat the effects of summer learning loss. At Star Tutoring, we have created summer programs that are customized to fit every student’s needs. We consult with you to address specific goals to achieve over the summer. Our core programs include:
Math: We check mastery of all content/standards to ensure readiness for the next school year. We also pre-teach upcoming concepts to build confidence.
ELA: We help with summer reading, developing study skills, practicing writing, and studying vocabulary.
Test Prep: With less on your child’s plate, summer is a great time to prepare for the SAT, ACT, or ISEE.
School Applications: We can help your child search and explore private schools and colleges and then coach them to prepare their applications, essays, and interviews.
Executive Functioning: Does your child struggle to turn in assignments on time or know what to work on? Are they coping with an ADHD diagnosis? We can help build organizational, planning, and study skills, which are foundational to success in school.
