Bad Report Card? What To Do #8: Ask Questions
Sometimes a student tries their best but still receives a poor grade on their report card. Some questions to ask are:
Is the class too large for your student to get the individualized attention they may require?
Could the time of day of the class have an effect on your student? (For example: early morning, before lunch, or after gym)
Report cards can be stressful for many students. If your child’s first term report card does not have the grades you would have hoped for, it does not pay to panic and add to the stress. Some children and their parents outrageously consider a bad report card a death sentence. This is simply not true. A report card can be used as a tool to help a parent have a clearer vision of what strengths and weaknesses their child has. Then once a weakness is on the radar, a parent can begin to address the problem.
There are many factors that go into the grades your child received on the most recent report card. Over the next several days we will take a closer look at first term report cards and what you can do to help your student improve future report cards.

Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Keeping Skills Over the Summer Tip #2:
Look over last year’s schoolwork. Review saved tests and papers throughout the year. Try doing this for several minutes each day.
You can prevent your child from losing math and reading skills over the summer by hiring a tutor to make sure your child’s knowledge doesn’t get hindered by a long summer break. A lot of parents think that people only hire teachers if their child is getting low grades in tests but this isn’t the case. Yes, tutors help students failing to get better grades but they can also be used to take your straight A’s child to straight A*’s. A long summer holiday allows students to have a much-needed break from school but it doesn’t mean they can stop learning. For example, you can hire an English tutor Brisbane to work with your child over the summer holidays so when they go back they have more of a chance of understanding the new things they will learn.
Of course, it all depends on what subjects your child enjoys, struggles with, and does good in. And remember, you don’t want to push them too hard over the summer and get too many tutors in as they want to have time to relax and will end up pushing against learning new things. You don’t want your child to have a negative view on learning new things so Y3K Tutor In Your Home will offer simple tips you can do over the next several posts.
Y3K Tutor In Your Home’s Keeping Skills Over the Summer Tip #1:
Keep writing. Encourage your child to write emails, letters and keep a journal of fun activities. Support your child’s creativity by not focusing on editing mistakes. Make it fun which in turn will give your child an opportunity to practice writing.
Having a ton of homework can be overwhelming for a student. Students (and adults) may be paralyzed with fear as to how to get all of the homework completed. Have your child identify and start the hardest assignments first. This way their brain will be the least tired and most focused.
