As we are currently deep in the middle of the Coronavirus Pandemic, students across the country are either learning remotely or sitting idle while their schools are closed. Total Tutoring Services has some great suggestions for how to use this time productively and turn this crisis into an opportunity for personal growth. Our recommendations are as follows -
FILL IN KNOWLEDGE GAPS: In normal circumstances, there is a lot of pressure to complete assignments and study for tests. Normal life is busy and does not leave much time to work on crucial knowledge gaps. In a subject like math, which builds on itself, learning higher level topics can be exceedingly difficult when more fundamental topics are not well-understood. Students can use this idle time to dive into areas of weakness and make themselves into a stronger student and better learner. Our tutors are experts at identifying where your child needs the most work and helping you drill through exercises that will improve their knowledge and ability in any subject.
STAY SHARP: When students don’t see academic material for a prolonged period, they can suffer from “brain drain”. This happens to many students during summer break. Meeting with a tutor a couple of days per week is a great way to keep your child’s brain sharp while school is closed. Our tutors can help to keep your child on track, both keeping up with online schooling as well as to provide enrichment.
SAT/ACT PREP: This is a perfect opportunity to study for the SAT or ACT if your child is a sophomore or junior. While the tests have been cancelled this month and next month, they are currently scheduled to resume in June. Use this time to work through some SAT/ACT concepts and strategies to help boost your child’s score on the test. Our tutors can help students master essential concepts and testing strategies. It is much easier to study for these tests when no other homework or classwork is due. Give us a call today to learn more about our program.
