Helping Your Child Improve Their Grades

As the first semester’s report cards start to make their way out, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell has prepared a post to help parents manage lower than expected grades.

A Helpful First Reaction

Parents often associate lower than expected grades with a student who is disinterested in learning or isn’t trying their hardest in school. This can often lead to frustration and anger. However, if you open a report card with low grades, it’s important to remember that there is a whole range of causes.
  • Taking effective notes was a challenge and affected their study time.
  • Your student struggled to find enough time to study or complete their assignments.
  • The new school year's lessons were more difficult than your child prepared for.
  • Some classes require learning tools which aren’t in your child’s pencil case or backpack.
Of course, this list isn’t an exhaustive one, but the items on it can be genuine cases for low grades and can each be rectified with your help.
  • Teach them techniques which can help your child take more effective and thorough notes.
  • Help your child to manage their schedule and resources better to accommodate more study time.
  • Give your student some extra attention and assistance with their homework and assignments each night.
  • Make a quick trip to the stationery store and stock up their supplies.
Whatever the reason for your child’s grades is, your first reaction should be to find out the cause and offer help to remedy it.

If Additional Help Is Needed

Some parents struggle to give their children as much help as they need, whether it be due to time constraints or simply because their child’s lessons are too complex for parents to understand. Look for additional ways they can get help:
  • Lunchtime group study sessions can help students fill in any gaps in their notes or understand a lesson better in an informal environment.
  • Look for alternative textbooks which can teach the same lessons in a different way, helping your child to understand better.
  • Tutoring in West Caldwell can give children more attention and time than their classroom teacher can, helping to fill in any gaps and answer unanswered questions.
