SAT prep in West Caldwell, NJ

06/08/2017
Despite students putting themselves into ‘vacation mode’ weeks ago, only now has the real summer vacation period begun. While there is no doubt that your student worked conscientiously throughout the school year to obtain the grades you see on their report card, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ has a post to share on why now isn’t the time for a student to take a complete break from their studies.

Don't Let Your Student Forget Important Lessons

Many, if not most parents who receive a report card from their children with excellent grades reward their student with a complete break from study over the summer vacation period. While this sentiment is true to a degree, a total break can be quite detrimental when school starts again. Consider a sponge and your student’s math lessons. A strange combination, but keep reading. If you submerged a sponge in liquid it would continue absorbing until it was completely full. This is a good yet very rudimentary way to think about a student’s brain; it's always active and ready to absorb any and all pieces of information presented to it. Of course, just like a sponge, once you remove it from the liquid source, it begins to slowly lose the liquid it once held. Now, imagine that the liquid mentioned above is your student’s math lessons they learned during the school year. Similar to a sponge, once your student’s brain is removed from an environment of constant learning, they begin to slowly forget crucial pieces of information. In the case of their math lessons, with math being a progressive subject, the lessons forgotten are fundamental base lessons which need to be learned before moving forward. What this means for a student as they return to the new school year is valuable class time spent relearning the information from last year’s lessons instead of being able to jump straight into new lessons. As you can imagine, this isn’t the best start for any student to have for a new school year. This can leave them behind their classmates before they have even had a chance to finish their first day back.
