It’s Report Card Time!

Your child’s report card is either on its way or sitting in your hands. If you aren’t convinced that the grades shown reflect your child’s abilities, this article from The Tutoring Center, Humble can help.

What’s the Cause?

The best place to start is with a comfortable and supportive talk with your child over a snack. During this discussion, keep your mind open to the fact that low grades don’t always mean a child who isn’t interested or trying their hardest. There is a range of other causes of low grades, such as:
  • There isn’t enough time to complete their homework.
  • They aren’t able to take enough notes during class.
  • Your child isn’t prepared for more complex lessons.
  • There are tools needed which your child doesn’t have.
Once you have identified the cause, consider ways which you can both help resolve it. Keeping with the examples above:
  • Help them adjust their routines and schedule to accommodate more homework time.
  • Teach them how to take effective notes quicker.
  • Give them some extra homework help or look for learning resources.
  • Make your way to the store and get them the tools they need.
Whatever the cause, be sure that you are open to it and you both work together towards addressing it. No good comes from simply getting angry or frustrated at low grades on a report card.

Do They Need Additional Help?

Sometimes it can be difficult for parents to provide the level of homework help needed. Not because of a lack of interest or even time constraints, but simply because modern lessons are difficult for most parents to understand. Consider other options:
  • Group study sessions with their peers can be a great informal way to help improve their understanding of a class.
  • Finding alternative textbooks and reading materials which explain lessons in a different way can be a great benefit.
  • Formal one-to-one tutoring in Humble is an excellent idea for students who are struggling with a specific class or even just a lesson.
