An ideal time to obtain tutoring is the month prior to the beginning of the new school year. Tutoring at this time begins to orient the student's mind to the discipline of schoolwork. Important concepts can be reviewed and strengthened, and new concepts can be anticipated and prepared for. The student can be reminded of certain principles of learning and of proper school behavior. Their reading skills, math skills, English skills, and geography skills can be built up to give them a firm foundation to begin their new school year. Parents, take advantage of the month prior to school starting to get tutoring, even once a week, for your student!
