We've been working on something BIG for you and your child this summer!

Most libraries host summer reading challenges. Reading daily is an AMAZING way to combat summer slip and make sure your child develops as a lifelong learner...BUT what about the other part of the puzzle...math?

Your child didn’t just work hard on reading and language arts during the school year, they busted it to improve their math skills too. You probably busted it to help them! Even though we’re all well aware of the summer slip dilemma of losing the skills you don’t use, there aren’t normally fun challenges to help kids and parents incorporate math into their daily summer routine.

That’s why we created the summer math challenge! No boring worksheets or drills (we don’t believe in those anyway). We know you’re a busy parent, so we took the work out of it for you. Just print one document, do the challenge with your child, and submit a form for their prize when it’s completed. No need to come up with ideas on how to sneak math into your child’s day without them complaining about it- we’ve done all that work for you!

3 Things to Remember When Switching Schools

Switching schools this summer? 3 things to remember.

06/03/2021

Summer is just starting, but the first day of school will be here before you know it! If your child is changing schools, there are a few things you need to make sure you take care of before the first day creeps up on you. Don't worry, we've compiled a list!

Before the first day at a new school be sure to:

- Take a tour of the new school with your child and talk to as many people as you can!
- Print out the new school calendar- get familiar with any new breaks
- Know when school starts and when it lets out!
- Practice the drive to the new school during rush hour- record how long it takes
- Make sure the school has all the records they need in order to get your child into the right class(es)
- Meet new friends that attend the school (if you don't know some already)

Your child is changing schools- that means you need to have some documents on hand just in case! Most schools communicate with each other pretty well, but it doesn't hurt to have a hard copy of your child's files and documents on hand just in case they're needed for a smooth transition.

Here's what you need to keep in a file:

- Most recent IEP (if applicable)
- Most recent 504 (if applicable)
- Most recent report card
- Records or reports from any recent assessments
- Vaccine and physical records

Even if your child isn't switching schools, it's always a good idea to have these on hand for a variety of reasons. What do you keep in your child's "school record file"?

Not all schools are created equal- the perfect school for one child might not be the perfect school for yours. School selection is a very personal choice and depends on a lot of factors. When thinking of choosing a new school, here are some factors you should consider over the "grade" you see for the school online.

- Teacher turnover or tenure- Are teachers sticking around at the school or are they heading somewhere else after a year or two?

- The programs your child might need or want- Does the school have programs that are a good fit for your child. If your child has an IEP, how are the special education services? If your child is into STEM, is there a place for them to explore within the school programs? Is there a dual-language program if you want your child to learn another language?

- The culture as it relates to your child's and family's needs- Do the school's values and culture fit within what you believe as a family?

- Distance from your home or work

- Before and after school programs that you might rely on

- The curriculum the school uses- Does it fit with what you want for your child? Are they changing curriculum often?

- How the school does grades and assessments - Are there grades given, or is another metric used to measure growth? How is student learning usually measured?

This is just a short list of things you might consider depending on what matters to you and your child. Which of these had you not thought of? Which do you consider often?

"Who should I talk to at the school that I'm considering?" We made you a handy checklist!

- The principal or assistant principal - ask questions that are important to you (ex. how do you handle discipline?)
- The school counselors
- Parents who have children at the school *make sure to talk to multiple! not everyone's viewpoints will be the same
- Teachers and facilitators for any special programs your child will use such as special education, gifted education, clubs, sports, etc.
- Other community members who have experience with the school

Sliding into summer: Activities to ignite your child's learning once school's out

This year children have learned to navigate Google Meet, the Internet, computer cameras, and more - and that’s JUST the students working virtually! For those students attending in person classes, many for the first time in at least 6 months. They’re readjusting to being around more than two or three people at a time, needing to be at attention for more than a few moments at a time, lugging around Chromebooks in backpacks bigger than they are - about as far from normal as one can possibly get.

We can set our children up for classroom success come August in many fun, easy, and inexpensive ways - in a manner that will work for everyone, by keeping learning alive during the summer months.

Sliding into summer: Activities to ignite your child's learning once school's out For many parents, myself included, this school year has been a blur of synchronous, asynchronous, in person, hybrid, and just about every other learning model possible. For children, they’ve learned to navigate Google Meet, the Internet, computer cameras, and more - and that’s JUST the students ...

I don’t know who needs to hear this...but remember to clean out backpacks and lunch boxes on the last day of school. I’m just trying to help you avoid finding a 2 month old sandwich in August 😬.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever found in your child’s backpack?

[05/21/21]   Happy #founderfriday! We have quite a few new faces around here, and I wanted to introduce myself.

Hi, my name is Zoie and I'm the founder of Hoffman Tutoring Group. I started this company over five years ago as a way to keep my educator skills sharp as I moved around with my active duty husband. I soon fell in love with one-on-one education and realized that struggling students had a big need for individualized connection and instruction. In 2018 I took it all online and brought on the BEST educators I could find to help kids get the out-of-the-box education they need.

My goal is to help each parent that comes to our practice find the exact right tutor for their child. Once I've done that, I don't consider my job done. I want to be a part of each family's education "team" and I'm always looking for new resources, information, and encouragement to share. Parents who work with us hear from me frequently as I check to make sure they have everything they need to feel like their child is being supported.

When I'm not working with families and tutors here at HTG (or showing up in your reels), I'm hanging out with my twins who are having their first birthday soon (😭) and my spouse. On the weekends we enjoy exploring the #raleigh area and #raleighbusinesses where we currently live. When I get a moment alone you can find me with a *hot* cup of coffee and a good book under the softest blanket I can find.

New here? I want to hear about YOU too!

School's out! Help your kids reflect on the school year

The school year is ending- DON'T forget to help your kids reflect on the school year. Here's how to do it simply:

05/20/2021

Help your child continue learning during the summer by planning an experience around their interests!

Have a dinosaur lover? Visit a museum!
Are mermaids on the mind? Try a trip to an aquarium!
Is “Hocus Pocus” a family favorite movie? How about a trip to Salem, MA like tutor Melissa is doing this summer.

Experiences like this are wonderful for children of all ages, bringing added depth to oftentimes boring subjects. So if you live near museums, planetariums, or botanical gardens, add them to your summer bucket list, particularly on those hot, humid (or rainy) days.

What's at the top of your summer bucket list?

Schoools out for SUMMER... well almost.

One of our favorite things to do during the school-free, beautiful summer months is enjoy the outdoors; from hikes at state parks to lazy afternoons at the beach, there are many opportunities to extend learning.

Talk with your kids about the types of trees and leaves you see for mini science lessons. Track how many minutes you've walked or what time you started a hike to when you finished to sneak some math in for the day.

Where do you like to go outside with your kids?

Our Story

Learning isn’t one size fits all, even though mainstream education systems try to force students to follow the same education track. At Hoffman Tutoring Group, we work with students who don’t fit the mold. Your child’s education should work for them, respecting and celebrating what makes them unique, not the other way around. Our goal for your family is experiencing less stress when it comes to your child’s education. Our goals for your child are to experience less fear and fewer limitations in learning, and instead experience freedom and inspiration in their school days. Want more information? Visit www.hoffmantutoringgroup.com or reach out via Facebook message. We can’t wait to help your child get the education they deserve!
