Whether your child is attending school this fall or taking classes online, they’re still coping with learning loss due to the pandemic. Academic experts agree that math has been the hardest hit subject. Because math knowledge is cumulative, this loss must be remedied before students can move forward. The time to fix it is now.

Parents, who used to just worry about a “summer slide” with their child’s education, now have a larger concern-“The COVID Slide”. Children typically lose between two and three months of academic growth during the summer. This year, with most schools closing mid-March, that academic loss, particularly in math, could be much more dramatic. According to NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association), the so-called coronavirus or “COVID slide” will be significantly worse”, says a new article published by Education News. “Depending on the grade, students were projected to lose anywhere from half to all of their math academic growth from the last year, compared to normal student growth.” The article states that the NWEA study found upper elementary students faced potentially the biggest losses during school closures, in part because 4th and 5th grades are usually a time of rapid academic growth.

What can we do?

Educational leaders suggest that supplemental education, especially for math is even more critical now. Parents agree that math is usually the hardest subject for them to help their children with-oftentimes leading to frustrations at home.

Finding the right supplemental math tutoring company can be rather challenging. Parents need to evaluate the programs closely. Tutoring should not just be someone helping a child finish a homework assignment or worksheet. Rather effective tutoring will help the child understand the math concepts and not just memorize something they will later forget. When a child understands a math concept that makes sense to him/her, they gain true mastery- a skill they will keep with them.
