The minor aches in life today with assistance from Y3K Tutor In Your Home, will pay off handsomely tomorrow.
Sometimes students struggle with homework because of learning difficulties, not because they don’t want to do the work. If you suspect this, act at once. Some options include contacting the teacher, calling the special education department and requesting a neuropsychological evaluation, you the parent working with your student at home, or calling a Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor to catch them up and move them forward.
Some students need time to play or relax right after school as they mentally burn out. Others students prefer get to their homework right away as they can remain focused and want to finish so they can have the rest of their evening to themselves. For this reason, Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutors are available as soon as school ends and up to 11:00 PM every day. It is important to allow students the ability to do their homework once they are mentally ready to do so as long as enough time is allotted to complete all assignments.
Has the following scenario ever happened to your student? They claim they have completed an assignment, but they cannot find it. The class then reviews the assignment but your student is not able to go over their work with the class and feels upset that they can’t participate in discussions. How about this scenario? Your student’s important papers end up being crumpled up messes. Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutors and classroom teachers notice frequently students anxiously looking through disorganized backpacks for missing assignments. This lack of organization often occurs with students that have executive function and ADD/ADHD issues. It is important to stay on top of this issue, as it can be the main cause of poor homework and classwork grades. Some students even use class time searching for items rather than focusing on their work.
Whether a student has organizational issues or not, their backpacks should be cleaned out and maintained at least every month if not sooner. It is essential that your student keep track of assignments, permission slips, notices and other items needed. Sometimes important papers are found buried at the bottom of the bag or placed in the wrong section.
Children that are prepared for school each day and organized tend have reduced stress and anxiety. We tutor students with organizational issues and teach how to be organized so call Y3K Tutor In Your Home today!

The easiest way to learn information is to ask questions and listen carefully to the answer. The best students are not shy. Teach your children to ask as many questions as necessary until they understand. Let one question lead to the next. Stress the importance of asking the teacher, another student, their parents, or an experienced Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor. Questions are stepping-stones to self-improvement and good grades. Truth fears no question.
