Summer School, for students a time to get away from the day to day headaches and worries of school, for parents it can be a great time to work a little and catch up with some studies or get some ahead. Public schools run on a strict time line for curriculum, because it is a must that it all get delivered.
Daily lessons are changed and added to. Time for repetition or practicing is just not there. Parents are stepping in in the evening and helping as much as possible, but that is usually after a full day's work and other chores.
Summer can be a great time to work on some catch up or review. On the last child report card, usually there are remarks as to what is needed to work on. Programs can easily be put together for each students and worked on at home or if possible with a tutor or with a small group with a tutor. A lot can be accomplished in a few hours a week.
One company that can help with providing this, is the Time4Learning program. They do summer school programs.
I have written a earlier BLOG on them, feel free to read it. You can center the program on whatever the student needs work on.
I personally am counseling some of my students to get signed up for this program, so that their child will feel ready to start their next grade.
