How to Avoid Summer Learning Loss
After a summer full of fun and games, it is almost finally time to get back to reality with the September school return on the horizon. During the past few weeks, your child would have had a blast playing and enjoying themselves – which has been massively needed following the pandemic. However, what could have been detrimental to them is the summer learning loss that is, unfortunately, part and parcel of the process.
Summer learning loss occurs throughout the season. When your child returns to school after summer, they will be doing so at a lower academic level due to not practising at all. They could be setback around three months, so it will take time for them to get up to speed. This is especially difficult when they are moving up Key Stages as the jump is very noticeable.
So, what is the solution to this problem? You guessed it – tutoring!
Tutoring provides so many benefits that are designed to help combat summer learning loss. Enrolling them in a course now will ensure that they are ready and firing for the academic year ahead. But how is this achieved? We have detailed all you need to know down below.
It helps them pick up where they left off and develop their knowledge further.
First of all, the main purpose of tutoring is to maintain and improve students in their studies. Without said purpose, there would be no need for tutoring. We are here to help your child make their dream a reality. If they want to become a successful doctor or lawyer, they will need to take their academic careers seriously. To aid them in that realisation, we provide our expertise to put it into practice in their GCSEs and then further education.
Do they struggle with Maths? See them pick up on valuable tips and tricks as well as develop a better understanding through regular, personalised study sessions. How about English? You bet we can overhaul and add to their reading, writing and communication skills. Even the most gifted students can benefit from more of a challenge. So if that’s your child, then book in with us.
It’s flexible and can fit around your weekly schedule.
Although summer means that your children are free of responsibilities, it doesn’t mean you are too. You still have to work during this period on top of handling the kids at the same time. It isn’t an easy feat, that is for sure. But what you can rely on is the fixed times for tutoring every week.
At Aim High, for example, you can either drop your child off at one of our three centres so you can have that needed space or choose the online tutoring option if preferred. We are open for business and can always be relied on, so you don’t have to worry about anything.
The pandemic has undoubtedly been a precursor to this summer, juggling the kids alongside work. So the last thing you may want is a repeat. Instead, give them a purpose – something to do for this summer instead of procrastinating. It can do them a world of good for their present and future.
It allows them to maintain an exemplary study practice.
Finally, tutoring is exceptionally good for maintaining good study practice. Structuring and level of importance for each topic can be set out by the tutor, ingraining that same attitude to learning within your child. Distractions are always finding their way to obstruct them from learning. With a dedicated tutor by their side, however, they can focus a lot more clearly and adapt to their teaching method smoothly. It is similar to that of a classroom but with even fewer distractions.
Tutors can ask the right questions and evoke good answers without students feeling rushed. Discussions can be had, and engagement will be boosted now that far fewer students are involved than a full class. This is something that cannot be replicated in any other shape or form (unless you are a tutor yourself!) and is perfect for getting your child mentally stimulated before taking that plunge into the next academic year.
At Aim High, we would be delighted to speak to you and your child to see how our services can help! We put them first, as we should, and will promise you results. Just be sure to book in before the school year starts so that they can get a head start on the competition. Please do not hesitate to book an online trial lesson either by contacting us today!
