Press release - After a year of academic upheaval, many young people have had to face setbacks or will have to catch up this summer in order to be ready for the start of the school year. This is why Alloprof would like to remind you that its student support services will be fully accessible from July 12 to 27, 2021.
A real need
“We have seen throughout the year that adapting to learning conditions has been more difficult for many young people. It goes without saying that Alloprof will remain present to support them this summer, particularly in view of the repeat exams ”, underlines Marc-Antoine Tanguay, spokesperson and director of strategy for Alloprof.
The organization also invites students and families to use its resources to prevent learning slippage, which occurs after a long break without school. “In response to the challenges posed by the pandemic, Alloprof has created several tools to help young people consolidate basic knowledge. Among other things, they will be used to reduce the height of the step that the students will have to climb next year, ”he summarizes. Last summer, students turned to these tools 518,000 times.
Since 2014, Alloprof has maintained all of its services in July to help students succeed in their summer courses, their assessments or their remedial schooling. Thus, the organization will answer questions by instant message, text or phone Monday to Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Students will also be able to ask their questions about the Mutual aid zone, open seven days a week, and offer explanations to their peers, validated by professionals.
Tools that facilitate learning
The MiniRecups, online retrievals used 40,000 times since their launch on May 12, aim to provide high school students with an interactive review of the fundamentals that pose the most challenges. Several other tools facilitate study and help to slow down the decline in learning, such as exercises, the top notions where the notional videos and educational games.
Remember that the organization also offers free support to parents wishing to ask for tailor-made help from professionals, such as remedial teachers, to prevent summer slips, or get plenty of advice to support their child in their school career.
School tours for students and teachers
