A strong organizational framework is key to reducing the stress surrounding studying and homework. If your child can’t find the book she needs to complete her English homework, or she left her math workbook in school for the third time this week, she’s likely to be upset, and you are likely unhappy, too. And this is before she’s even cracked a book open to start on the actual work. If this scenario sounds familiar, you’re not alone.
At Teachers Who Tutor, students succeed with their schoolwork because our tutors ensure that every child has a system in place that allows her to be effective and efficient, from her desk at home, to her backpack, to her locker at school. Our team of educational experts first identifies where students struggle organizationally. We then work with students to create targeted solutions, whether setting up a own system of reminders, helping to establish a filing system and weekly backpack and locker clean-up or creating a checklist of when to check the school homework site and which materials to bring home each day. With these new systems in place, better organized students are able to thrive and focus on the actual content of the homework itself.
Our tutoring programs ensure that each child has a system to be productive and successful, from their desks and rooms at home to their backpacks and lockers at school.
