You want your child to have fun over the summer, but you don’t want to compromise their academics. Yet, it can be so hard to engage your student in learning over their vacation time. Whether you’re looking to prevent summer slide, or just looking for help keeping your kid on track for summer assignments, Acadomia is here for you.
Avoiding Summer Slide
Summer slide, also known as summer setback or summer learning loss, is the phenomenon of students losing knowledge over summer break. It is a sad and unfortunate fact, but studies show that students lose, on average, between 25 and 30 percent of the knowledge they gained in the past school year over the course of a summer.
Another study acknowledged that students lose two months worth of reading skills, as well as two and a half months worth of math skills during summer vacation. And these losses build on each other over time; they are cumulative. By the time your student enters the sixth grade, they have lost the equivalent of two years of knowledge due to summer learning loss.
Tutoring Prevents Summer Setback
On the bright side, studies also show that children who are engaged in some form of learning for just two to three hours per week prevented summer learning loss. This is what makes summer programs for kids so important. When you combine this with the knowledge that students with tutors massively outperform their peers, it is natural to want to find the right tutoring program for you and your child.
Yet, finding the right fit for your student may feel more complicated than it has to. That is why Acadomia is here for your summer needs. If you’re looking to place your child in summer tutoring programs, check out our fantastic options below.
Our Summer Tutoring Options
This one-on-one tutoring method is the best way to set your student up for success. We are available for both in-home and virtual options, providing personalized access to tutoring across the country. Private sessions can be held for math, science, language arts, and even French. Plus, we guarantee a custom tutoring plan that adapts to the student’s program, skills and learning style.
If you want to add a social aspect to your child’s tutoring program, this is the best option for you. Our small groups of up to five students allow our tutors to balance personalized tutoring with a classroom setting. This way, your student is growing both their academic and social skillsets over the summer months. We offer group tutoring for math, French, Spanish, or any other class. Additionally, we have multiple settings for your convenience, including in-home, virtual, and tutoring office settings.
If your child has AP, SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, or SSAT testing in the coming year, it is important to give them the best tools for success. After all, many of these tests directly relate to what their college application process will look like. Give them the preparation they need with Acadomia’s in-home or virtual tutoring options. Not only can our tutors aid your child to grasp the material they need for the test, but they can also provide key test-taking insight. Test-taking, after all, is a skill set of its own. Make sure your student is prepared without having to cram for these tests in conjunction with their regular school work.

We will help you make smart academic and extracurricular decisions, identify the best colleges for your student, and develop an optimized testing calendar to help your child reach success.
Learning a New Language

No matter the child’s current comprehension level, our tutors will develop a personalized study plan and provide books and activity workbooks.
