Fun Summer Learning Ideas From Study Wizards Tutoring, San Jose, California

Just because school's out for the summer doesn't mean your child has to stop learning. To get you started, try these tips from the expert private tutors at San Jose, California's Study Wizards Tutoring.

Harness your technology. Google, Apple, and Amazon offer a dizzying array of fun, colorful, educational math games for children of all ages. If you're looking for a resource with an impressive pedigree, have your kids try Calculation Nation from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.


Encourage reading. Summer is a great time for children to explore reading materials that interest them, without homework to get in the way. When developed at a young age, the habit of reading for pleasure is one that will last a lifetime. For inspiration, consult Choices Summer Reading, a compilation of recommendations from librarians containing recommendations across a wide variety of genres.


Family outings. Interactive activities can be an excellent way to keep your children intellectually engaged. Check with your local museums for event ideas. Many institutions, such as the San Jose Tech Museum, have summer programming designed to engage children in a variety of topics, from natural history to art lessons and astronomy. A trip to the zoo or a national park also presents exciting opportunities to indulge your child's curiosity about the natural world. Simply by answering questions and letting kids follow their interest in the natural world, from living creatures to interesting weather patterns, a family outing can be a great primer on the natural sciences.


In-home tutoring is the best way to make sure your children are prepared for the academic challenges ahead. Visit Study Wizards Tutoring online to learn more about their range of services, or just call (408) 883-8660.
