How to be Productive Over Winter Break
Sure, I will get some work done during winter break . . .eventually.
It knows when you are sleeping
It knows when you’re awake
It knows when you are bad or good
So be good for goodness sake
You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Procrastination is coming to town!
Case in point…I REALLY did not want to sit down and write this article for December. Winter break is a time to sit back, relax, recharge, and recoup. It is certainly tempting for students (primarily middle and high school students) to spend their days mindlessly scrolling through social media, watching TV, or playing video games. After all, they have three weeks, and there will be plenty of time to get to any schoolwork that may need attention. Sure, they will get some work done . . .eventually. But suddenly, it’s the last day of break, and they are stressed out for the upcoming semester because they got nothing accomplished.
As parents and teachers, we know this year has been extremely challenging for students; many have fallen behind due to online learning.
Winter Break is the perfect opportunity to get students caught up so that they can begin their journey into 2021 with confidence, in-fact, winter break is an even better time than the regular school year to seek private tutoring. For starters, tutoring over the winter break gives students the ability to catch up or get ahead in a stress-free manner.

Groza Instructors are experience, and many, are credentialed teachers who will go above and beyond to ensure your child’s success.
When it comes to tutoring and academic advancement, Groza goes far beyond simply finding the correct answer. We seek to enhance, and even entirely reshape how a student thinks about each subject. We work with families to identify learning objectives and hit their goals.
Because every student learns differently, we carefully monitor and optimize their unique learning plan as they advance, giving special attention to their unique learning style, how to effectively engage and inspire the student, and what the individual progress suggests moving forward.
Your child is unique. So, don’t settle for a one size fits all approach.
Instead, give them a learning experience that meets their individual needs.
