Everyone can use a little break from school. Students take the summers off to grow in other ways, whether it be through extracurriculars or socially. With that said, much like anything else that requires practice, leave the books on the shelves for months on end and students risk losing the progress that they’ve worked so hard to achieve.
Recent studies by Brookings have placed summer learning loss figures at an average of twenty-five to thirty percent as students advance in their K-12 education. This is learning loss that can be overcome simply by scaling back rather than completely separating from academics during the summer months. Furthermore, students that perhaps just made it through a subject area in the past school year can use this time to work out their difficulties and play catch-up so they’re ready for the upcoming school year.
The Tutoring Rocks summer tutoring and study skills program is the premier way for students in the Sacramento, Folsom and El Dorado Hills areas to keep their mind active in an environment that both encourages growth but also understands that the summertime is a period for relaxation. Our summer tutoring programs are designed with flexibility in mind, so your family won’t have to worry about going away on vacation and missing out. Our team of tutors work with parents directly to identify scheduling needs and academic areas of focus, then turn their attention to the student to develop a learning curriculum that will both assist their learning during the summer months while simultaneously retaining their interest. Our study skills program moves beyond subject-specific content and is a must for any student looking to build on their organization techniques, while our classic summer tutoring assists students with specific content needs in ensuring that they get to where they need to be in order to succeed in the next exciting year of school that awaits them.
