The holidays are here again and many students especially kids would be so happy for getting breaks from school.
Now that school has come to an end for vacation, children will look forward to relaxing days at home, days out with their friends, maybe even a holiday abroad with the family.
However, holiday is a free time, and after this extended break many students will return to school having forgotten much of what they learned before the holidays.
It might not be any student idea of a perfect holiday afternoon, but small refresher lessons during the holidays can ensure your child does not slip behind over the break.
This is what is sometimes known as the vacation slide.
Hiring a maths, english or science tutor to provide weekly one-to-one tuition or small group tuition can be very useful in preventing this from happening.
It guarantees that important knowledge is not forgotten, something that is especially significant as students approaches their exams.
If you are considering doing this as a parent, you certainly would not be alone.
A study conducted; found that one in four parents plan to hire private tutors over the holidays to guarantee their children do not suffer from the so-called vacation slide.
With one-to-one tuition, you will be able to instruct your tutor to focus on a certain topic that your child may be struggling with to ensure they do not squander the progress they have made over the holidays.
Alternatively, small group tuition is available for pupils who may be struggling with one particular subject, allowing them to catch up with where they should be before returning from the holiday.
We can’t promise that your child will be thankful for it, but hiring a tutor over the holidays can be a proactive way of ensuring they don’t fall victim to the vacation slide.
They will be able to return to school with a fresh memory, ready to face what the year ahead has in store for them.
