School reports and interviews
No matter how well your child has been doing, school reports and parent/teacher interviews can be stressful for everyone in the family. If things haven’t gone well, or they’re just not quite as good as you expected, it’s important to avoid the blame game. The trick is to celebrate what has been achieved and focus attention on solutions to areas of weakness.
Getting individualised help
Whether you’re confronted with bad news or simply puzzled by the challenge of ‘could do better’ comments, we’re here to help. It doesn’t matter whether your child is getting ‘Achieved’ that should be ‘Merit’, or ‘Merit’ that should be ‘Excellence’, our individualised programmes will find and address the missing links that will lift performance.
“My son suddenly began to struggle with maths, a subject he had always enjoyed and done well in. He started at number works and by the time he had completed two terms he returned to being confident and happy in the subject.” (sic)
Motivation comes from success
If you suspect your child just hasn’t been making the required effort, or has become disenchanted with school because it all feels too hard, you need something to break the downward spiral. A spell of expert tuition will get them back on track, so that they’re motivated and confident about the rest of the year.
“I love the way Number Works and Words have inspired my son to learn math and have made it fun for him. He actually looks forward to his lessons and has had such a boost in his overall personal confidence. That is, in itself priceless.” (sic)
Fix problems before they grow
The sooner you get onto the issues the better. Knowledge gaps can create roadblocks to further learning that no amount of tough-love parenting can remove. It’s much easier to fix a small problem than a larger one and although we like to say ‘it’s never too late’, obviously there are limits to disaster recovery.
