ASHLEY TUTORS TELLS NBC4 VIEWERS HOW TO KEEP KIDS SHARP OVER THE SUMMER BREAK
Ashley Tutors can help your student avoid the “brain drain” this summer
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. – Ashley Tutors (http://www.ashleytutors.com) will be featured prominently in a NBC4 6 p.m. news story next Tuesday, May 20, discussing how to make sure students can keep learning all summer long.
Research shows children can forget some of what they’ve learned over the summer, according to Harris Cooper, director of Duke University’s program in Education. Cooper and his colleagues reviewed 39 studies, and the results showed achievement test scores declined between the spring and the fall on average.
Typically, the first quarter of the new school year is often based on catching students up, learning new routines and expectations, and relearning previously taught materials. Visit the Ashley Tutors blog on the Ashley Tutors web site for great tips on how to keep your student sharp this summer so they’re not a step behind next September. Tips include walks to the library, keeping daily journals and just getting outside to play and be active.
Ashley Tutors believes learning should be fun, and offers the perfect opportunity for your child to receive both an entertaining and educational experience. The Ashley Tutors team that can make even summer learning entertaining consists of 12 experienced and energetic instructors who offer their students knowledge from their exceptional college and graduate educations, and also come from differing backgrounds with intriguing personal stories or jobs.
