Over their long vacation, most students experience a phenomenon known as
the summer slide where they lose much of the academic gains they made
over the last semester. Summer academic losses are also cumulative so
students who experience the summer slide will drop further behind every year.
According to the authors of a report from the National Summer Learning
Association: “A conservative estimate of lost instructional time
is approximately two months or roughly 22 percent of the school year.”
While academic losses happen across the board, most of the studies which
focus on the summer slide deal with reading and math abilities which are
so important for today’s students who want to compete in an increasingly
tough job market.
Better learning means a better life
The antidote to the summer slide is to take just a couple of sessions every
week for in-home and online tutoring. Here your kids get personalized education that
suits their personalities, abilities and learning style. Watch their confidence
grow as they not only avoid the summer slide but fill in the gaps in their
learning, and acquire the study skills they need to succeed in the new year.
