As your students gets older, the subjects they need to learn become more complex and advanced. Luckily, they are also at an age where they want a bit more independence, so one idea is to give them that independence by providing online resources and other materials to allow for some independent study.
Don't underestimate your ability to master new subjects either. Remember that as you've been teaching, you've also been learning, and that learning has laid a great foundation with which to chart new territory. Also, by the time your student has reached middle school level, you've already instilled a love fand motivation for learning that will keep them moving forward.
