How You Can Help Your Child Improve Their Grades

If you have received your child’s first report card for the school year and know that they are capable of achieving grades higher than the ones you are looking at, The Tutoring Center, Cypress TX has prepared an article which can help.

Your First Reaction

A parent’s initial reaction to low grades on a report card is often anger or frustration. After all, we all associate poor grades with a student who isn’t trying or is disinterested in learning. However, this isn’t always the case. There is a large range of causes for low grades. As an example:
  • Your child struggles to write sufficient notes, which prevents them from completing their homework correctly.
  • They aren’t able to find enough time to complete their homework.
  • There are learning tools they need which aren’t in their backpack.
  • Their lessons are just a bit more complex than they were expecting.
Each of the above points can be a genuine cause for low grades and each can be addressed. You just have to remain receptive and always willing to help. Continuing on from the above examples:
  • Give them tips on how they can write notes efficiently and be more prepared for their homework.
  • Show them how to rearrange their routines, schedule, and priorities to allow for more homework time.
  • Head to the stationery store and fill up their backpack with what’s needed.
  • Help them a little more each night with their homework and assignments.

If Additional Help Is Required

Every parent wants to help their child achieve, but with the complexity of modern lessons, most find it difficult to even read the questions, let alone work out the answers. However, there are other additional learning resources your child can benefit from:
  • Group study sessions at school can provide a great environment for your child to learn informally from their peers.
  • If your child struggles with their textbooks, look for alternatives which present each lesson or class in a different way which is more relatable to your child.
  • One-to-one tutoring has been shown to drastically improve a child’s abilities, including preparing for exams and achieving higher report card grades.
