Managing Underwhelming Grades

Now is the time that report cards will start to make their way home, leaving some parents feeling a little underwhelmed by the grades on them. If you know that your child is capable of achieving higher grades than those on their first report card, below is a post from The Tutoring Center, Plano to help you address the matter.

What’s the Real Cause?

Parents often and immediately associate low grades with a child who is disinterested in learning or doesn’t pay attention in class. However, many interested students can perform poorly due to a range of factors. For example:
  • They aren’t able to get all of their homework done in time.
  • Your student struggles to take notes.
  • Additional learning tools are needed.
  • The lessons are too complex for them to understand.
Each of the above is a genuine reason why your child is struggling in school and neither of them has anything to do with a disinterest in learning. Find out what the real cause of your child’s low grades is and address it:
  • Help them to rearrange their schedule to allow for more homework time.
  • Show them how to take effective notes.
  • Make your way to the store and pick up what they need.
  • Give them extra homework help each night.

Is More Help Needed?

If your child needs additional help, and more than you are able to provide, there is a range of other methods. You can consider:
  • Group study sessions where they can learn from other students.
  • Find alternative textbooks or reading material which teaches the lesson in a different way.
  • Tutoring is a great option to help students who just need a bit more time and attention than their teacher is able to provide.
