Now that the summer is winding down and schools are starting again, this is a great time to start thinking about tutoring for the school year! Many students need a little pre-school refresher on some of their past subjects, while others want someone who can help them get back into the swing of things with the new material they get to learn.
In particular, subjects that build on themselves over the years such as math and science can be intimidating to start again, especially if the student doesn't fully remember what they learned the previous year. This is a great chance to nip in the bud any worries about falling behind or getting lost; a tutor can compensate for forgotten concepts with extra review, or explain newer material in the context of reteaching the old.
Perhaps on the most practical level, as school schedules and activities fall into place it becomes possible to figure out when tutoring could fit into a busy week! Parents can start to get an idea of what their child might need a hand with, and they can set up tutoring now to have ready for when their child gets stuck on a concept or subject during the year. Planning ahead like that isn't just a good idea for students, it can save parents a ton of stress later.
