After your kids have worked hard to achieve what they want, have them take the time to enjoy it. Give them lots of praise when accomplishing a goal.
The Rivers School of Weston Parent Testimonial
“My son made high honors for the first time! He has been at the Rivers School for over 3 years and in the Weston Public Schools before that. During his entire schooling he always struggled. He battles with executive function which has held him down since he started school. Before we met you, he was turning in around half of his homework assignments and many of them late. Now all of the homework is handed in on time and receiving full credit. You taught him organization and study skills that helped him cope with his executive function. My son earned high honors at Rivers in just a matter of 3 months time. We are thrilled! Thanks Y3K Tutor In Your Home.”
Wellesley Parent Testimonial
“The owner has tutored my children for several months. His patience and time that he has spent was wonderful. He was flexible with the my hours and he was able to understand my needs. My kids’ math and English test scores went up after learning study skills and test prep. I would recommend Y3K Tutor In Your Home to my friends and their kids.”
Thorough preparation makes its own luck.
Wellesley High School in Wellesley, MA is considering revamping its grade point average system (GPA) in controversial fashion. They would go from a weighted GPA system where GPA is adjusted based on the difficulty of classes to an unweighted system where an “A” in an honors class is worth the same as an “A” in a lower level class.
There are no state or federal regulations as to how GPA is calculated and is left up to each school system. Currently Lexington High School in Lexington, MA already switched to the new unweighted system while Belmont, MA is in the process of doing the same. For the communities of Newton, MA and Arlington, MA, both weighted and unweighted GPAs are calculated.
Many school systems including Natick, MA make available a software portal that allows middle school and high school parents the opportunity to access their student’s grades online. Be sure to take advantage of this computer program if offered by your school.
Needham Parent Testimonial
“Y3K Tutor In Your Home really made a difference. The quality sets it apart from other programs. The founder is phenomenal as he went above and beyond to help my kids to achieve their goals. We had the founder of the company and I believe he helped my kids immensely. Both in development as students and as people. He embodies many admirable qualities in particular his selflessness and devotion. To have him as a friend and mentor is rewarding. I highly recommend this tutor and organization.”
A divorce can affect all aspects of a student’s life including academics. Even if separated and at odds, BOTH parents must insist on maintaining high academic standards.
Achievement is only 1% aspiration and 99% perspiration.
High test grades go to kids that take their time and LAST to hand them in. Tests finished early get the lowest grades. Check over your work!
