Morris Tutoring is well-equipped to help with specific academic needs over the summer, but the time you spend with your kids during summer vacation is full of learning opportunities as well.
For reading and general knowledge, don’t forget that the Phoenix Public Library has lots of free offerings for kids. Here’s the list: https://www.phoenixpubliclibrary.org/browse/Interest-Guides/Pages/Seasonal/Summer%20Reading/Summer-Programs-for-Kids.aspx
PBS, in addition to having many educational programs, published this article giving suggestions to keep math brains stimulated over the summer. A few are:
- View road trips as a mobile classroom
- Use everyday errands as learning opportunities
- Transform routine chores into fun lessons for young children
Here’s the whole article: http://www.pbs.org/parents/education/math/math-tips-for-parents/summer-math/
Math computation practice can be done using a variety of math websites, many of which are free. Scholastic offers this list for parents: https://www.scholastic.com/parents/school-success/learning-toolkit-blog/online-summer-math-programs.html
I encourage you to also consider summer tutoring, of course, especially when the student is behind, nervous about the next school year, or has a pattern of doing poorly in a subject or two. There’s nothing quite like a one-on-one, stimulating connection between tutor and student to get things moving academically. Obviously, some kids resist the idea of doing “school” over the summer, but we’ve seen even resistant kids surprised by the enjoyment they get from a few sessions with someone who listens and cares.
We work around your vacation schedule, and are geared to do everything from “catch-up” to “forge ahead.”
