Programs: Summer Tutoring Program
The direction in which education points a child will determines his/her future
Amazing Tutors' Summer Tutoring Program is designed to help students succeed by providing ongoing opportunities to learn and practice essential Math, Reading and Writing skills. For many students, summer learning loss can be detrimental to their knowledge base, especially for those who are already struggling. Parents consistently cite summer as the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive activities.
Our caring Summer Tutors understand that all young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. Additionally, research spanning 100 years reveals that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer (Downey et al, 2004). We are here to help with this problem.
The Amazing Tutors' Summer Tutoring Program assists students of all grades and ability levels with their development of core academic skills. Studies have shown that most students lose a significant margin of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months. For students who already experience problems with Math and certain subjects, this loss can affect their performance. Our supportive Summer Tutors understand that low-income students also lose significant amounts of progress in reading achievement, while their middle-class peers make only slight gains (Cooper, 1996).
With the aide of our Summer Tutoring Program, students also receive the individualized guidance they need in order to develop these in Math, Reading and Writing. Our Summer Tutoring staff teach students to become independent learners by enabling them to be organized, create personalized study routines, and manage their time to advantage. As with any task or challenge, if one wishes to become successful and proficient at something, he/she must continually practice. If one ceases to practice, he/she will have to work extra hard to reposition his/her skill level. It is therefore important to keep academically stimulated over the summer by practicing these core skills.
At Amazing Tutors we understand that more than half of the achievement gap between lower-and higher-income youth can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities. As a result, low-income youth are less likely to graduate from high school or enter college (Alexander et al, 2007). The good news is there are many ways to prevent the regressive effects of summer learning loss, and our Amazing Summer Tutoring Program is dedicated to helping your child continue their learning over the summer by providing extensive support with your child's Math, Reading and Writing skills.
Strategies to Avoid Learning Loss
There are a number of methods and strategies that can be implemented to avoid this regressive "summer learning loss."
Continued literacy development:
Encouraging students to continue their literacy development by reading, either on their own or with others. This goal can be accomplished as easily as visiting the library with the child, or having him/her attend story time. Finding books that appeal to your child(ren)'s interests will make reading a fun endeavor and will increase the likelihood that your children will want to read. After reading books, it is also helpful to discuss the main events with the children, to help develop their comprehension skills.
Engage children in every day activities:
Involve students in daily activities which will peak their interests, while exposing them to a number of daily activities to develop their life skills. This could be as easy as getting children involved in cooking or shopping.
By practicing their skills on a continual basis, students will not only maintain their skills, they will strengthen them. For students who are struggling with certain subjects, continual practice will ensure an improvement in academic performance. The most effective way to prevent summer learning loss is to continue instruction while your child is not in school. Only 1-1.5 hours tutoring per week during the summer holidays can make a significant difference in how well your child adapts the new school year.
Use play time as an educational tool:
We live in a time where technology is very advanced. Take advantage of the many educational games that are on the market. Encourage them to take some time out of their day to play educational games. Even if it's only for 30 minutes a day, playing educational games can improve academic skills while making learning a fun endeavor.
"I am very grateful for my experience working at Amazing Tutors. The company is a great resource for students at all learning levels. The BC certified teachers and tutors that make up the team come from a variety of educational backgrounds, which ensures that every student can be matched with a tutor who suits his or her educational needs. I myself have a B.A. in English Literature and I am a certified ESL instructor, with experience teaching ESL at the elementary level.
"Part of what makes Amazing Tutors so useful for students is that its program focuses on skill building. Although students can, of course, bring their homework to tutoring, they are also encouraged to work on the Amazing Tutors' proprietary Math and English curriculum during their sessions. In the long run, building skills to consistently get better grades is more beneficial than specific help with one piece of homework. The executive team of Amazing Tutors recognises this; however, they are also very flexible with their program. Whatever your desired educational outcome is, you can be sure it will be professionally addressed."
