Summer School: A means to stay on track and get ahead over the summer months.
It’s the time of year when the questions surrounding summer school begin pop up. Should I enroll my child in a summer school course over the next two months? What are the benefits and drawbacks?
Summer school can take a variety of forms for our students. Some choose an online approach while others prefer a face-to-face classroom experience with a teacher. Both approaches, depending on your child’s needs and plans for the summer, can be very successful. Summer school can help students who need to retake a course or wish to get ahead for the year to come. An online approach will require children to be more independent in managing their time to ensure that they are completing the course requirements regularly and on-time. A classroom approach takes the shape of a typical day at a school where a course is condensed into one month.
At Prep Academy Tutors, our tutors are accredited teachers who have an expansive knowledgebase on how to assist students taking summer courses, both in on-line and face-to-face formats. Prep Academy Tutors can help you choose which program approach is best for your child and offer support all the way through to the final exam. Our tutors can assist students with time management and creating a schedule to ensure that they are putting full efforts into their course while still having time to enjoy their summer.
