Foreign language can be one of the hardest skills to continue over the summer months. To help with this, we spoke to one of our top language tutors, Annalee, to get some ideas for the best ways to not lose last year’s progress. Annalee has an MA in Hispanic Linguistics and worked as an Instructor of Spanish at University of Illinois at Chicago while she was getting her degree, we really appreciated her insight!

The second post in our summer blog series is all about reading. Most students have assigned reading for the summer, but those select titles aren’t the only things they should be picking up! As promised, we asked two of our fabulous tutors for some tips about assigned summer reading as well as keeping up on general reading skills. Below is what Katie Goetz and Amanda Balgaard, tutors extraordinaire recommend.

Homeworks will be publishing a summer blog series on fun ways to keep your students engaged and active in reading, languages, science and math. But to start it off, we thought the best place to start would be to focus on getting everyone organized. With locker clean out and the switch to a summer wardrobe, this can be a tough battle for parents, so we looked to our talented tutors to get some great tips for making the task easier.
