When schools let out for summer, it leaves room for the infamous “summer slide” where students may regress academically.

The average student loses between 17-34% of the prior year’s learning gains each summer.

Additionally, the pandemic has been deemed the largest disruption to education in history, setting back over 1.6 billion students the past two years.

Jamie Lee, the owner of Tutor Doctor, South Tampa, joins Gayle Guyardo the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show Bloom with fun activities to prevent the “summer slide”.

Bloom airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at Noon on WTTA: Spectrum 1006; Frontier 514; DirecTV 38; Dish 38; Comcast 43, and look for Bloom early mornings on WFLA News Channel 8.
