Keeping Your Child's Learning Momentum

As the end of the school year vacation period gets closer, a student's mind begins to drift away. Not to thoughts about their school. No, to dreams about their vacation. This can make it hard to maintain any learning momentum. If you have noticed this behavior, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ has some tips which can help.

Study for Chores

Despite them believing that chores are the end of the world, parents know them as jobs that need to be done. Next time, instead of listening to your student tell you how hard their life is, offer them a deal. For example:
  • 30 Minutes extra reading = Favorite meal for dinner
  • Read one extra chapter of a school book = No taking out the trash
  • Help a sibling study after school - Favorite breakfast the next morning

Access to the World

Your children see internet access as the be-all-and-say-all of the world. Without it, they are lost. While restricting their access to the internet also restricts their access to learning, you can make it a learning tool. Each day they are at school, change the wi-fi password to be the answer to a study question they are struggling with. It could be the name of somebody influential throughout history or the answer to an algebra equation. Whatever it is, prompt them as they walk in the door.

Students Who Attend Tutoring in West Caldwell Achieve Higher Marks

It is important that you don't take your incentives too far, where your child expects them. However, small instances such as these are negligible for the parent but are great simple ways to keep challenging information fresh in a student's mind. If you know that your child is capable of achieving more and want to put them in the best position for their end of year exams and assessments, speak with The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ at (862) 210-8600 about how one-to-one tutoring can help.
