The benefits of tutoring over the summer months are many.  Educators have found that students lose between one to three months of academic learning over the summer. Engaging your son or daughter in individualized tutoring, will give them the opportunity to retain information from the previous year in school and reinforce the concepts before it is lost.

Individualized instruction can also give extra attention to concepts that may have been challenging or not entirely understood from the previous school year.   During the summer, students have more time to focus their energy to catch up or even get ahead in a particular subject before the school year begins again in the fall.  

Whether you have an elementary or high school student, consider setting some time aside to prepare your child to succeed in the upcoming school year.  Call Sarah Ribeiro at Four Points Tutoring. I have been in the business of providing well qualified tutors in the Steiner Ranch area for the past twelve years.  Our tutors provide one-on-one tutoring in all the basic subjects as well as test preparation, foreign language and study skills.

Keep your child’s academic skills up over the summer

Decades of research has clearly shown that enjoying a few months off from school in the summer can lead to setbacks in children’s academic performance. Children not only experience a loss of general academic knowledge over the summer months but multiple studies indicate that students routinely score lower on standardized text scores once students return to school in the fall, than they did on the same test a few months earlier.

 Teachers report that they spend the first month or more re-teaching and reviewing material that their students have lost over summer vacation. Valuable classroom time is therefore lost which could be spent teaching new material.

 Loss of Math computation is the biggest problem, where students lose about two and a half months worth of grade level math skills that have been forgotten over the summer. Reading and spelling abilities also show a decline but appears to be less significant than the loss of Math computation skills.

 Make sure your child will have the knowledge they need to be successful in the upcoming school year. I have a team of well- qualified tutors ready to help your child over the summer months.

Cell phones in the classroom

October 10, 2014

 

iStock_000008177672LargeI was recently in the car with a group of teenagers and was interested to observe their social interactions.  They were all carrying on conversations with their friends, but were equally engaged in their text conversations.  It made me think about the classroom and wondered if their social media was a distraction or if this new generation could thrive with this new form of technology.

According to most educators, interaction with phones and other technology can at times be a distraction but the reality is that it’s proving to be a real advantage in the classroom.  Educators see the following as very clear advantages of cell phone use in the classroom:

-Students have the world at their fingertips and can draw on this for classroom studies.

– Teachers are now using applications on smart phones that allow students to work on collaborative projects.

– Teachers are incorporating programs that allow them to gauge student response in real time with activities, games and quizzes related to class material – all through phones.

-Students can record class lectures for review at home.

-Teachers are using texts to interact with the students as opposed to e mail.

The bottom line is that electronics are going to be a part of the 21st century, and students and educators are in new territory learning how to incorporate these devises into the classroom.  They want to use it to the advantages of technology while preserving classroom teacher student interaction.  While it “appears” that phones have the possibility of distraction the vast majority of students and educators feel that it is a huge benefit to their education
