Making Use of Winter Break


To be clear, the most important purpose of winter break is just that: taking a break! After a bevy of final exams, challenging assignments, and mental exercise, you and your family deserve some time off. 

That said, it is possible to get some rest and relaxation without completely turning your brain off for two weeks. With that in mind, here are a few things you can do to emerge into 2020 feeling rejuvenated, inspired, and accomplished.

A few great uses of free time during your December break:

1. Pick up a book that you’ve been meaning to read

You can find AJ tutors’ personal book recommendations on our blog here and here. Make sure to leave your phone in the car or another room for maximum undivided attention.

2. Check out local events around the Bay Area

You can find events in San Francisco, the South Bay, and more! Or simply grab your sneakers and try out a new trail with your family!


3. Come in for tutoring

Even though school’s on break, there’s still plenty of learning going on at AJ. School break is a great chance to get ahead in your class or start thinking about spring test preparation.

Taking the March or May SAT? We can also add an extra session or two of SAT prep to use the week productively.

4. Check out the AJ Educational Blog
