The first step in getting started at Hyperion Language and Learning Services is signing up for an initial consultation. This is a risk-free way for you to learn more about our services and for us to learn more about your child’s needs. Together we can determine if our center will be a good fit and if so, we can come up with a plan for moving forward. This initial meeting does not mean that you must sign up for our services- it is more of an informal conversation where we can get to know each other.

After you complete our consultation request form we would love to learn as much about your child's history as possible. This lets us be better prepared for the consultation meeting. You can either snail mail records to our office at 19 Main St. in Kennebunk or you can securely email them to email@example.com. Helpful records include the following:
At the time of the meeting we will ask you any clarifying questions we may have based on the documents you shared. Additional questions we may ask include
After getting all this helpful information we will tell you all about the services we offer at Hyperion including talking about our tutors, our teaching methodology, and how we structure our services.
If it seems like we are a good fit for your child's needs then we can generate a plan for moving forward together.
The beginning of the school year is always a crazy time. Getting back into the routine of the school day, after school activities, and earlier bedtimes can be rough. Sometimes it can seem easier to let your child get settled into the school groove before adding tutoring services back in. Before you make this decision though, please check out this quick video that outlines several benefits of starting up with tutoring right away. Then, whatever decision you make, you know have viewed both sides of the coin!
“Summer slide” is the term used to explain how a student can lose skills they learned during the school year over the summer months. Doesn’t sound as fun as you expected right?
Multiple researchers have studied this phenomenon and have found that students can lose 20-30% of school year gains over summer vacation AND that this can have a “snowball effect” so that these loses build on each other every year.
So what can you do?
Keep kids learning over the summer! Try a combination of structured and unstructured learning activities. Structured activities can include reading books, working through math problems, online learning games, or direct tutoring instruction. Unstructured activities could include cooking (reading recipes and measuring ingredients), going on a nature walk (take notes, describe and count objects), or playing a game that promotes language, math, and/or reading skills (Scattergories, Cribbage, Shut the Box).
The key is to keep kids learning, imagining, and playing. By finding the balance your child can avoid riding the summer slide! Let us know if we can help!
