Is Your Child the New Kid at School This Year?

While you may have many fond memories of your school years, it’s likely that none of them are about your first few days at a new school where you didn’t know anybody and everything was new. However, for many students this year, this is exactly the adventure they are experiencing. To help to help your student make a smooth transition into a new school this year, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ has the following post.

Don't Use the Map!

It can seem counterintuitive not to use the very item given to you to help you find your way around your school, however, by not using it and instead asking fellow classmates around you in the schoolyard you have the perfect icebreaker to make potential new friends. Each time that you need a question answered, look around for somebody you recognize from class, first, and use it as a way to introduce yourself.

Don't Be Somebody Else

There are many movies that will have you believe that you should use this time to change who you are so that you can be the ‘cool kid’ in your new school. And while this may make for a great movie, in reality, it isn’t as fun. Instead, focus on being yourself and finding friends who enjoy spending time with you for your personality, not because of somebody you are pretending to be.

Learn About Your Teachers

As much as you should spend this time connecting with new friends, it’s also important that you meet your new teachers. While you won't’ be expected to have lunch with them, simply learning about what they expect from their students during each class and during each exam, along with their teaching style and planned lessons can be a great way to ensure you behave appropriately in each class and hand in work which will receive a high mark.
