Huntington Learning Center Helps Families Fight the Summer Slide
Every summer break students face a risk of significant learning loss. Studies show that on average, students lose up to 30% of their previous year’s reading progress and 50% of their previous year’s math progress. With COVID-19 interrupting traditional classroom learning, students are dealing with a risk of academic decline that is compounded by social and emotional stressors. Therefore, it’s extremely important that we invest in our children’s education over the summer, which can be fun and engaging with Huntington’s help.
In response to the pandemic forcing school closures earlier this year, Huntington launched a virtual, live and individualized tutoring and test prep platform called HuntingtonHelps LIVE, enabling us to keep our doors open online, even if our brick-and-mortar centers closed temporarily due to state mandates. Since the platform’s launch in March, Huntington’s certified teachers and accredited programs have provided hundreds of thousands of hours of personalized online tutoring to students across the country.
In an effort to further support families this summer, Huntington now offers free supplemental learning resources online. Families can enjoy programs like Huntington’s Reading Adventure and weekly Reading Live sessions on Youtube, as well as our free weekly webinars covering topics like how to build skills outside the classroom, how to write a great college essay, how to support your child’s mental health during the pandemic, and how to navigate the challenges of remote learning for students with ADHD and other learning disabilities.
