Summer Learning Loss is Real

Summer Learning Loss is Real

Our recent emails have discussed how the 'summer slide' can affect students. Analyzing independent research, The Brookings Institution has also suggested that student achievement is reduced, on average, by one month of learning over the summer break. The learning loss gaps tend to be wider for lower-income student groups.

How to Prevent the Summer Slide

Research shows the number one way to reduce the effects of the summer slide is by continuing at-home learning over the summer break. Home-based activities demonstrated a stronger correlation to better results in the fall than participation in summer camps. The good news is that this can be achieved with as little as 20 minutes of daily reading and writing activities with your kiddos. If you're looking tips and suggestions on what to work on at home, please feel free to give us a call! (214) 444-3431.

Star Tutoring: Online | In Center | In Home

Our summer programs are customized for every student. We consult with you to address your goals for summer learning, including:

  • Math: We check mastery of all content/standards to ensure readiness for next school year. We can also pre-teach upcoming concepts.

  • ELA: We help with summer reading lists (or assign reading), develop study skills, practice writing and study vocabulary.

  • Test Prep: With less on your child’s plate this summer, now 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 organization, planning and study skills which are foundational to success in school.
