How to Avoid the Summer Math Slide – A Comprehensive Summer Program That Won’t Ruin The Fun

Posted By Ryan Duques

It shouldn’t surprise us: the final bell rings, and knowledge begins to slip away. Math is one of the subject areas that students can loose ground in quickly during the summer months.

Test scores are negatively impacted by summer vacation, according to a report from the American Educational Research Association. The negative impact increases with age, likely due to a students inability to regularly practice skills, like math, over summer vacation.

TutaPoint’s summer math academy is one way student’s can combat the “summer slide” – the program, which is provided by expert math instructors, live online is an effective one-on-one program that reinforces a student’s previous-learned skills and prepares them to be ahead of their peers next fall.

An effective summer math program should assess what the student has retained from their last completed math class, reinforce skills learned and then prepare the student for their next class, which ensures they enter the next year ahead of their peers, with math confidence. TutaPoint’s summer math academy does this by providing the online Stanford Diagnostic assessment to all program participants. Results from this math diagnostic are uses during the summer program.

Unlike many summer math programs that group students together, TutaPoint works with students one-on-one, working with each student as an individual. This attention ensures that the summer math program is meeting the specific needs of the student.

Parents seeking to avoid the “summer slide” should consider a program that helps their child retain last years math and prepares them to enter next year ahead of their peers.

Instructors  meet with students in our secure, classrooms at times convenient for our students – our instructors work around a students busy summer schedule. This is one summer math program that will not get in the way of your child’s fun summer activities.
