How can a tutor help you with summer tutoring?
During the summer, many children experience a phenomenon referred to as "summer learning loss." According to research, when students spend their summers out of school, they lose a significant amount of academic skills. It may be seen in students as young as first grade and may be the equivalent of two years lost by the end of fifth grade. With a summer tutor, your child may continue to improve their knowledge, allowing them to retain the information they learned. A tutor may provide ongoing learning opportunities, chances to practice skills, and allow them to explore specialized areas. Call Varsity Tutors' educational directors to match your child with a summer tutor in Indianapolis, Indiana, who is knowledgeable in a host of alternative teaching methods to best teach to your child's particular learning style.
Varsity Tutors may help you find a tutor for your child. They may consider your child's grade level, past curriculum, reading and math skills, interests, and learning personality, among other factors, to identify the instructor who may best meet these needs.
A summer tutor in Indianapolis may help your child work to try to attain more confidence in their academic skills. Your child's tutor may encourage them to challenge themselves with books, activities, hobbies, and games that have a basis in academia. They may explore a variety of topics that they may not learn about in a traditional school environment, which allows them to develop independent skills. Your child's tutor may have them participate in unstructured activities that encourage creativity and learning simultaneously, making their study times more effective and efficient. If your child wants to explore potential careers, find a great book to get lost in, play logic games, or learn valuable strategies to improve their comprehension of various disciplines, your child's tutor may do help them do it. Your child may benefit from being able to ask questions on a one-on-one level to receive feedback immediately.
Your child's summer tutor may meet with them wherever in Indianapolis that is convenient for you. You may arrange to have them meet at a local library, your home, or anywhere else at anytime of the day. In addition, you may arrange for your child to have face-to-face online tutoring sessions, which may be ideal for those who have vacations during the summer.
Our educational directors in Indianapolis, IN, may locate a summer tutor who might help you meet your goals and excel on your exams.
Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
After math, we moved on to his roots packet. We finished with time to spare.
He has two more things to do, one a small essay, the other is organizing and filling in his notebook.
He remembered his mantra, and hopefully he will stay on track with his focus and motivation in the future."
SECOND STUDENT: After finishing his math homework, he requested help prepping his computer to be returned to the district. Together we backed up his files to the cloud and cleared his computer of old files. He then looked through his homework and found out he had a short reading for religion. I checked for comprehension by having him summarize the text and asking questions. We then finished the session by practicing Spanish vocabulary. He took a few minutes to look it over, and then I quizzed him."
Student J - We spent the time discussing studying techniques for his AP World test. He agreed to continue to take practice multiple choice questions and go back over the ones that he got wrong to make sure he understands the topic. He was also explaining to me what he has to do in order to get a higher score on the essay questions. By talking through it, I think he was beginning to feel more comfortable with what he can change as he approaches thesis statements and what they are looking for when grading the test.
Student L - She read me her paper she was working on as she proofread it. Next week, I will discuss her current work load so we can make sure she stays ahead of any studying."
For new material, we reviewed strategies and techniques for note taking as the student is getting ready for finals. We reviewed outlines, flashcards, methods of note taking, and mind mapping. We practiced each of these and discussed which subject they'd work best for.
He needs to commit to his planner or list tool, and also would greatly benefit from section dividers for his binder (discussed last session). Other than, we're making good progress!"
His Chemistry teacher has also noted that he is learning the material but is having difficulty demonstrating that on exams. This acknowledgment seemed to really boost his spirit and he no longer says that all his extra work is wasted time. In fact, he has decided that since Algebra II summer school is inevitable, he will devote even more energy to Chemistry in hopes to avoid Chemistry summer school.
His other school work is still maintained. There is room for improvement in History which is rare because this is his favorite subject. He says that he is struggling a bit with finding interest for the topics being covered in this unit of History. We had a discussion about how those historical events are still shaping current events and ways that some trends are cyclical.
I am happy about his renewed push towards graduating from this school."
