More Information About Why Your Student's Grades Are Slipping

A previous post provided information on two of the most common reasons why a student's grades may be slipping. To help you and your student further, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ has an additional post to share which can help you to understand why your child's grades may be declining.

Peer Pressure

Do you remember how important it was for the ‘Cool Kid’ to like you in school? Well, things haven’t changed; kids still look up to the cool kids in their school. When this happens, many students are afraid to ask questions or complete their work correctly from fear that it will make them appear silly or, can you believe it...smart! While this sounds silly to adults, the social influences in a school can be very powerful.

Change of Mind

Imagine that you are in school and that a few years ago you decided on your future career path. However, years later, when you are on the right track, you decide that it isn't for you. In this scenario, students feel that they have come too far to change now and often don't speak about their conflict. This can lead to a student 'going through the motions' of their classes. The big problem with this attitude, however, is that the student is capable of achieving great grades if they only studied something they were interested in. If you have noticed your child's interest in their future career path wane, speak with them frankly and ask if they are still interested in the field. Be sure to let them know that you ask because you want to ensure they are enjoying their study and are focusing their brilliance on something they like and something which can provide a future.
