Looking for additional ways to put your summer to good use?
 1. Take a deep breath

Burn out is a real thing that can hurt your grades. Whether you are an overachiever whose extracurricular activities include interning with Numerade or you’re fighting just to get by in school, you can not push yourself year-round. You’ve done a lot and you deserve a break!
 

       2. Adventure social distancing style 

At school the grind can become repetitive. During the summer you have a chance to see and experience new things. This is not only part of being a well-rounded person, but is proven to be a powerful anti-depressant that can fuel you with fond memories to escape to when school gets hard again in the fall. 
 

       3. A lil’ practice makes a lotta’ perfect

Ok ok, you know we weren’t going to let you spend the whole summer goofing off, now get back to work! The big problem with summer break is that any pause from school can cause students to regress. To combat this you do not need to carve out a big chunk of your break for an academic summer program. What will have the greatest impact on your academic transition from spring to fall is studying and thinking critically about your academics for a little bit everyday.  

That is why our academic summer camps are designed to give you little daily doses of video lessons to keep you sharp and learning consistently throughout break. 
 

      4. Freestyle your education 

Don’t let your major or focus in school limit what you get to learn about. Being able to master skills and knowledge from related or completely unrelated subjects you’re interested in can help you perform better in general education classes and just flat out make you a smarter and more interesting person. Whether it’s on Numerade, Google, or anywhere, look up lessons on topics you find fascinating and learn away! 

      5. Look at me, I’m the teacher now

Studies have proven the best way to cement knowledge and refine your understanding of a subject is by teaching it to someone else. See if you can volunteer to tutor, help a friend, or just pretend your dog needs calculus help. Point being, thinking about a complex topic and simplifying it to teach someone else requires you to truly understand the material and consider it in a new and valuable way. If you really understand and can teach a certain school subject well, you might qualify to become a Numerade educator and get paid to teach. This is the ultimate cheat code, where you suddenly are getting paid to master your knowledge of a subject!
