For a lot of parents, homework time can be a struggle. It’s a struggle to find time to sit with each of your children during homework hours. Not to mention juggling after school activities, competing schedules and the needs of other family members. When you finally get a chance to help, you’re battling to get your kids to sit down and concentrate.
There are two main reasons why you should persevere.
The first, is the harsh reality of the world we live in. No matter what the gender of your children, the quality of their careers can be determined by their performance at school.
The Australian Government is forecasting “40% of all 25- to 34-year-olds in Australia to have a degree by the year 2025”. This means that its likely your child’s future income will be decided by their ability to keep up with their classmates in school, or forge ahead of them. The most prestigious universities want the students with the best grades. The most successful companies want the students from the best universities.
The second reason is that the “homework years” are when your child develops an important discipline that has benefits far beyond just getting good grades. This is a time where kids learn to “fish for themselves” and master critical thinking and leadership skills that set them up for life.
Think twice when someone tells you homework is not necessary. Think twice about what they’re really saying.
The worst thing in life is to have talent and not be able to use it. To have brains and not be able to harness them. To have potential that never becomes more than potential because someone doesn’t show you how to actualise it.
Your child’s self-confidence, advancement in school, future salary and success in life, may depend overwhelmingly on their ability to learn and squeeze every ounce of power out the brain nature has built into it.
Is it really that hard to get good grades?
The answer is NO.
If your child struggles with study skills or finds homework cumbersome then helping them through it can make an overwhelming difference in their performance in school.
We’ve found that students who are struggling at school are struggling because no one has ever taught them how to learn efficiently.
Without the proper learning skills it’s possible for students to only understand half the concepts of what they are being taught in school. Teachers are overwhelmed with their workload and students are falling through the cracks and being categorised as a “half-doer”.
There’s also another simple reason – overcrowding. Packed classrooms. Thirty or more children to a teacher. Not enough personal attention. Not enough explanation of difficult concepts and problems.
A good online tutoring solution works as a team with parents and school teachers to make sure each child gets the individual help they need. Such as lessons specifically tailored to meet each individual student’s skill sets. This is an important aspect because each student has their own challenges that they face.
By mastering these skills online kids improve in the classroom. School lessons suddenly become twice as easy and twice as fast to learn. The burden is lifted from teachers as kids are sent to class prepared to absorb new information.
Your child does not have to be brilliant to succeed in either school or in life. The only thing separating an average student from getting into university is direction – the ability to get the best possible results out of his or her own efforts.
Given the right direction EVERY student can improve. In fact, kids who have been taught at their level, one step at a time, can get results far beyond their expected grades.
The difference is having face-to-face tutors who are available to talk students through any difficult concepts they have covered in class or that may have cropped up in the homework. Likewise, they can review essays and maths for exam preparation or other written tasks for school and provide structures and useful feedback before or after these are submitted.
Online Tutoring is now a 20-year-time-tested, proven method that can turn B’s into A’s, C’s into B’s, and provide D students with dramatic improvements.
These improvements may be what your child needs to get them into an advanced class or it may be just what they needed to feel confident and happy about going to school.
Technique… direction… guidance… method! These are the secrets to success in school. Not an IQ. Not some mysterious hidden talent that allows only a few gifted students to solve problems while others will never understand the concepts no matter how hard they work.
That’s all nonsense. Learning is a skill and it can be improved with practice just like any other skill. Online tutoring can start your child on the road to improving their grades within the first month. This can be achieved in as little as twenty short minutes of online tutoring every day. You may even get the teacher actually call you up to see what happened!
What a great thing to do for your children… to help them get out of school everything they should get out of it.
