Your child has been working hard all school year and, whether they’ve been making strides in their learning or struggling, it’s important to use the summer months wisely to alleviate the frustration and stress in September. Studies have shown that if children take a break from learning completely over the summer, they could lose months of learning, especially if they were unmotivated during the school year. That’s why it’s a good idea to consider getting a tutor, for as little as once a week, which can provide educational support to keep your child’s mind sharp.
