Here we are racing to the finish line of another school year! We have just a few weeks to go which should be a time for celebrating accomplishments and planning for what’s ahead. If you think your child has fallen behind their peers academically, celebrating and planning for next year may seem out of reach.
In a recent article, Education Week reports that “high school students lost on average the equivalent of 3.4 months of instruction in reading, 3.3 months in math, 3.1 months in science, and 2.3 months in English even as schools continued to offer remote instruction through the worst of the pandemic.” This loss has a long-reaching effect on their learning and readiness and will take time to overcome. What can be done if your child is struggling to keep up with just a few weeks to go in the school year?
Here are three ways you can support your child and get help:
Request a Teacher Conference
Seek Additional Help
Some kids work better with one-on-one support or need a combination of school-based support and individualized tutoring to make steady progress. At Tutor A Team, we build a team of support to help your child reach their goals. This includes the teacher, the caregivers or parents, and the tutor. We offer tutoring year-round and find that summer tutoring can be just the right fit for many families!
