Is your son or daughter struggling in school? Are her grades so poor that you worry she’ll be left behind? Are her chances of attending a top notch school slowing slipping away?
As a good & caring parent, you care about your child and her future.
Sometimes kids and teenagers lose sight of their purpose—their future—of what’s important. Right now, students are facing an incredibly challenging time as schools have closed or shifted to online learning during the coronavirus. Research shows that during the coronavirus pandemic, American students are losing 6-8 months of prior learning gains. Further research from McKinsey has shown that young students will see their life-time earnings decrease by $80,000. And that is assuming they are back with in-person education in January 2021. There is no doubt—the pandemic and distance learning have been very challenging on children, teens, and families. Teenagers, who have the biggest need to connect with peers, have been mostly socially isolated. Psychologists have reported that during the pandemic levels of anxiety and depression have increased to nearly 66% among young adults and teenagers. This is astounding. I fear that even once the pandemic ends there will be lasting damage done to our society and to our future generations. We need to take care of them. We need to provide our young-ones with support and guidance for years to come.
As a responsible and future-looking parent, you likely agree with this. You want to ensure your kids are getting the attention and education they deserve. Now is a great time to enroll your students in a tutoring membership—one with focused, dedicated, local tutors who can seamlessly transition between in-home tutoring and online tutoring.
Many of our tutors are now vaccinated and doing in-home tutoring.
America will recover from the pandemic. As I write this, more and more Americans are becoming vaccinated. This is good news for our country. But it will take time to heal. I suspect that students will struggle with learning math & science for years to come. Teens will struggle with higher rates of eating disorders, depression, and anxiety, even as the lockdowns lift and things get back to normal. It will take a team of helpers to get our best generation back on the right foot. But we can do it together.
This pandemic has also been difficult on mothers and parents. I’ve heard countless stories from mothers telling me how they are juggling their career working from home, taking care of the house, while also attending to their kid’s homework and school schedule. Many moms feel like they are being pulled in one-hundred different directions all-day long: “Moooooooommmmmmmm!!!!!!!!! Come help me!!!!!” “My zoom isn’t working!!!!!!” “MOM! MOOOOOOMMMMMMMMM! Mom. Mom. Mom.” Some moms have told me they don’t feel cut out to be a mother any more. They need some semblance of normalcy. They need their kids back at school. They need it to be quieter. Moms need a moment to just be by themselves with their thoughts. To have a moment to relax. But these moments have all but vanished for most mothers. It has been a really hard year for moms. Moms are ready to stop worrying. Moms are ready for life to get better.
