Tips for a Successful Parent-Teacher Interview

A parent-teacher interview is a valuable opportunity for every parent to gauge how their child is performing in school, both academically and socially. It also allows parents to gain insight into behaviors their child displays at home. However, with only a short period allocated, it can be difficult to ensure a fruitful meeting. For this post, The Tutoring Center in West Caldwell has some tips on how to prepare for your next parent-teacher interview to make the most of your session.

Create a List

Many parents talk to each other about what they want to discuss with their child's teacher, however, often leave the meeting realizing they forgot crucial questions. A week before your meeting, sit down and write a list of what you would like to discuss with the teacher and what outcomes you are hoping to achieve. Over the days leading up to the meeting, add items to the list and prioritize each one to make sure you cover important items first.

Ask About Repetition

Asking the same type of questions or struggling to understand lessons presented in a particular way provide great insight into how your child learns and what they need to learn successfully. Ask your child's teacher if any repetition is present, and obtain suggestions on how to address this.

Ask About In-Home Behaviors

If you observe your child displaying behaviors at home which you feel are not beneficial to their learning, speak with their teacher about whether these behaviors continue into the classroom. If it comes to light that your child is attentive during their school lessons but not when they study at home, tutoring in West Caldwell could be an excellent way to formalize their after-school study sessions.
