1. Establishing a regular study routine is key to helping your child develop good study habits. Set aside a specific time each day for studying and make sure your child sticks to it.
2. Create a distraction-free environment for your child to study in. This could be a quiet room in the house or a specific desk or table. Make sure the area is well lit and free of distractions such as video games, television, and cell phones.
3. Praise your child for their efforts and recognize their successes. Let them know that you are there to support them and offer guidance and assistance when needed.
4. Encourage your child to take notes, review their material regularly, and break large tasks into smaller chunks.
5. Every child has a unique learning style. Be aware of your child’s learning style and accommodate it when helping them with their academic work.
6. Make sure your child enjoys learning. Find ways to make it fun and engaging for them. This could include incorporating games.
7. Ensure your child always has an age-appropriate dictionary to hand and knows how to look up any misunderstood words.
“Oh my goodness, I’ve learned so much in such a little time. But I am so grateful for my tutor. I’ve missed so much of this schooling (teaching) when I was younger. But I am so determined to go all the way.” -L.B. (adult GED math student) *L.B. pictured on right with her CLC Tutor, Sioux
Tutoring can have a direct effect on a student’s academic performance. Through one-on-one instruction, tutors can help students understand the material more fully and identify areas of weakness. Tutors can help students develop better study habits, such as taking notes, outlining material, and using study guides.
Tutors can provide support and motivation to help students stay on track with their studies while also building a student’s self-confidence.
Tutors can provide a positive environment for learning, which can help students feel more comfortable asking questions and trying new things. Tutors can help students build strong critical thinking skills and feel more confident in their ability to tackle challenging material.
Finally, tutoring can help students develop better time management skills and help them learn how to prioritize tasks. Tutors can help students plan out their studies more efficiently and identify areas where they can improve their study habits.
