At this time of year, students are typically exhausted and the prospect of doing academic work in the summer is not appealing. This is absolutely understandable. However, summer brain drain is real, and summer review, particularly in math and science, can give your children a boost for the upcoming school year. In addition, it is imperative to fit in some reading and writing.
Here are my recommendations for keeping minds sharp this summer:
- Take a break when school ends for some much needed brain relaxation.
- Talk with your children about academic areas that may need a boost. Set up some review time, with or without a tutor, during some free slots in your summer.
- Read for pleasure.
- For high school students, do some practice SATs and ACTs.
Summer tutoring can actually be inspiring and motivational. We hope to hear from you!
