During summer vacation students usually stop thinking about the coming school year. But research indicates that this could be a costly mistake.
According to the National Summer Learning Association, students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer.
In addition, most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months.
To get kids ready for the next school year, Northbrook's ClubZ! In-Home Tutoring Services is holding a "Learning Summer Camp" where tutors provide in-home one-on-one instruction. From July 22nd until Aug. 30th, 2013, this 6-week program will preview the school curriculum to ease students into the coming year by honing study skills and test taking.
From July 11 to July 20, ClubZ offers a comprehensive ACT/SAT test preparation series.
"We invite students and families to experience a free in-home consulting session where initial evaluations can be made in core curriculums or take a sample ACT/SAT test to gauge readiness," said Hank Song, president of ClubZ! In-Home Turing Services. Song notes that the summer session fills up quickly.
