During the school year, most parents and students are highly alert and performing at a high level. Why? Well, this has to do with the fact that during the school year, most of us are on an extremely organized, tight schedule. This keeps us sharp. The summer slump is healthy for a while to recover, sleep, relax, etc. If we allow it to go on longer than a month, we actually negate so much of what we spent an entire year building. The reason for this is that it usually takes 21-30 days to make or break a habit. If you are experiencing the "summer slump," here are a few tips/ideas to lift you up: 1.

Never give up. I learned this from my Dad. My father somehow instilled this voice into my head that remains with me as an adult that I have what it takes to achieve any dream. Above and beyond the mastering of mathematics and science, I want my students to know that they are cared for in a manner that I believe in them, and I can help build their confidence, not just in mathematics but as a life coach. When we have confidence, we can attempt things that we never ever pictured ourselves doing. For all students today, no matter what age you are, I encourage you to NEVER GIVE UP. Keep on keeping on! You can do it. Sometimes, all we need is a little cheering and a voice whispering to keep going....keep going...you can do it! I hope this encourages and uplifts everyone who reads it today, and even more so, I hope it inspires you to keep going or start a new goal or task that you are afraid of doing. You will surprise yourself of what you can achieve! -Shara
