Help Your Children Study at Home Without a Physics Degree

Helping their children with homework is something that every parent aims to do and is something which is actively encouraged. However, what happens when the homework being attempted is too difficult for a parent to understand? If this sounds like you, all is not lost. The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ understand the importance of parental involvement in their children’s homework and has a post which can help.

What to Write/Draw?

What you put on your flashcards is the most important aspect and one which is not as difficult as you might think. The first step is to hesitate asking your child to make the cards themselves. As educationally ambitious as they may be, when it comes to homework, if there is a chance to make it easier, each student will take it. Instead, ask to see their notebooks and look for notes which posed a particular challenge. The best way to identify these is by searching for poorly written notes, notes which have been crossed out and rewritten, and incomplete notes. These are good identifiers of areas or subjects which should be revised. Once you have these, ask your student about any other notes which they are not entirely comfortable with and add these to your ‘cheat sheet.' Armed with this information, create small flashcards which can fit in your purse, handbag, or even a storage compartment in your car. On one side you will write or draw the equation (in the event of math) or famous historical figure (if your student struggles with their history lessons) and, on the back, the correct answer. There you have it! Without having to return to college yourself, you are now armed with a powerful tool which can help you prepare your student for large exams or even smaller pop-quizzes which the teacher has planned.
