MAKE THE REST OF THIS YEAR COUNT!
February: The Halfway Point of the School Year
It’s February. It’s a big milestone in the school year. For thousands of students, February means a new semester. For all students, it means it’s the halfway point in the school year. That’s right, there are only four months of school left until June.
That means that there are four months left to make this grade the best grade ever!
In order to take full advantage of the remaining time, Oxford Learning recommends parents and children take an inventory of the struggles that they encountered over the last four months. The trouble spots that your child dealt with during the last semester/last four months are a good indication of what struggles your child will face in the upcoming months.
Take inventory. Did your child:
- Leave homework until the last minute?
- Stay up late cramming?
- Get frustrated?
- Hide assignments?
- Dislike teachers?
- Have falling marks in a particular subject?
Did you answer yes to any of these questions? (We think that you may have, because, let’s face it, most kids struggle with these issues.)
Any ‘yes’ answers mean that your child could probably benefit from a tutor for the remaining months of school. More than just bringing up a mark in a particular subject, professional tutoring can help your child:
- Study better
- Get more organized
- Think more clearly
- Manage frustrations
- Avoid last-minute studying
- Improve his or her attitude towards school
Make the rest of this year count. The clock may be ticking on the school year, but there is still time to make this grade the best grade ever!
