Math Help in Honolulu, HI.

If your child feels stressed already about their new classes or they aren’t enthusiastic about going back to class each day, this article can help to explain why.

Despite what all students would like, the first couple of days or even weeks back at school during the new year aren’t dedicated to making new friends and exploring a new school. Instead, the reality is very different. Teachers know just how many exams and learning milestones are coming in the year and want to utilize every lesson they have to help prepare their students.

Tutoring Can Prevent Your Student from Falling Behind

Below is a post from The Tutoring Center, Honolulu about how this shock to your student could present a challenge and how tutoring can help.

How Often Did Your Student Study over the Summer Break?

There are many students who maintained some type of education routine during their summer break. Whether it was spending a few hours a week reviewing the last year’s textbooks or just going over their homework assignments to see where they could have improved, this academic work has its benefits. However, there are many more who, instead of the above, spent the majority of their summer break hanging out with their friends, ‘liking’ every social media post they could come across, or sitting on the couch all day and night in front of the television continuing to ‘like’ even more posts they were able to find! As important as it is for students to take a break from their studies during the year, completely neglecting any type of review or revision can have serious negative effects. The cause is the summer learning slide, which a previous post explained in detail and gave tips on how to avoid it. During this phenomenon, children’s brains, much like a sponge out of water, begin to drip or lose valuable information. It could be a science class here, a calculus algorithm there, or even an entire math lesson that are lost over summer. While the effects seem inconsequential during the break, when it comes time for a student to attend class again and begin learning, it can leave them falling behind their classmates before they have even learned the names of their classmates. If you are worried about your child struggling in school with their lessons, one-to-one tutoring can help. Book your free initial diagnostic assessment by calling 808 377 5500. During your first visit at The Tutoring Center, Honolulu, a trained learning expert can answer any questions you have about the benefits of one-to-one tutoring and how subject-focused tutoring programs can help your child achieve high grades this school year.

Tutoring During the Back-To-School Period Can Help in Two Ways

The first step is to fill in any learning gaps which were caused by the summer learning slide. This could be a few tutoring sessions to help relearn foundational math equations and lessons right through to entire science classes. Between your child and their tutor, they can identify where your child needs help and address those areas. The second step is to help each student understand how their previous lessons correlate with the new lessons they are being taught, along with providing them assistance with these lessons. With limited time in the classroom, teachers aren’t always able to answer every question. This can leave children like yours with unanswered questions and doubts about their new and more difficult classes. One-to-one tutoring provides students with a learning space without distractions and without any other students for the teacher to tend to. This gives each child the opportunity to ask any and all questions they have about their new lessons until they have a solid understanding of each subject. Children who are provided with the above help and tutoring are in the best position to attend their new classes and not only be at the same level as their classmates, but often levels ahead. As you can imagine, this makes it much more likely that they will raise their grades and reach their learning potential.
