How can a tutor help you with summer tutoring?
School may be out of session, but the learning doesn't have to be. The summer is an excellent time for your child to review concepts they may have been confused about during the past school year. The summer is also an ideal time for your child to get a head start on the upcoming school year. Private summer tutoring in Washington, D.C., can help your child continue their learning throughout the summer months. Varsity Tutors can help you in your search for one such tutor. You child can meet with them online or in person, at a place and time that you choose.
Washington, D.C., summer tutors can help your child avoid the common problem of summer learning loss. All that hard work over the past school year can easily be lost and forgotten if your child spends several months not utilizing the information they learned. The last thing a child wants to do during their summer break is spend it working on schoolwork. However, their private tutor can work with them in a one-on-one environment, making lessons fun and engaging so that it doesn't feel like work. Say, for example, your child struggled with word problems in math during the school year. Their tutor can work with them by creating funny word problems for them to solve, helping them have fun and learn at the same time. Because it is just your child and their tutor studying, the lessons do not have to be as structured as a classroom. The sessions can provide a relaxed environment, with more room for learning games and fun, educational activities.
Washington, D.C., summer tutoring does not have to take up your child's whole summer break. Just two to three hours per week has been shown to prevent summer learning loss in students. This means that just a session or two a week may greatly help your child without interfering in their summer fun. Their tutor may even decide to simply have your child read a challenging book and then discuss the chapters read every time they meet.
Much of the first month back at school in the fall is spent reviewing and re-teaching concepts from the year before that were forgotten over the summer. A private tutor can help your child during this first month back. The tutor and your child may even decide that your student is ready to begin covering concepts they will learn in the upcoming school year. This could give them a jumpstart on their next school year.
