In addition to your child meeting their new teachers, parents are also provided with an opportunity to formally meet them to discuss their child’s learning. Be sure to make the most of this time.

With the limited time and resources available to a teacher, regular catch ups and meetings with parents just aren’t something they are able to maintain. Not because they don’t want, but simply because they don’t have the time.

Tips to Help You Get the Most from Your Parent-Teacher Meeting

For this reason, it’s important for every parent to take advantage of the small amount of time they are afforded during each parent-teacher meeting. The Tutoring Center, Aberdeen NJ knows just how important this is and has prepared some tips below which can help.

It Starts with a List

It’s not uncommon for parents to leave a meeting with their child’s teacher and suddenly remember a range of concerns and questions they wanted to discuss, only to realize that it’s too late. The best way to prevent this from happening to you is to make a list of everything you want to speak about. Sit down with a cup of tea and really think about what you would like to speak with your child’s teacher about. Whether it’s a large or small concern, be sure to include it on your list. Once you have finished, keep the list close by for the next couple of days in case you suddenly remember anything to include. Once you are confident that the list is complete, sit down and prioritize it. If you don’t get enough time to speak about all of the items on your list then you will want to make sure that you do discuss the most important ones first.

Don’t Forget to Ask About the Teacher

Along with learning about your child's progress and how they can improve their grades, be sure to ask the teacher about themselves. Learn about their classroom structure and their teaching style, as an example. Often the discussions which come as a result can answer many of the questions you have on your list without you having to ask each one. It also gives you a better understanding of the learning space your child is going to be in for the next year. If your child struggled during the previous school year or you just know they could have achieved higher marks with a little bit of extra help, one-to-one tutoring in Aberdeen can help. To learn more about the benefits of subject-focused one-to-one tutoring programs, give The Tutoring Center, Aberdeen NJ a call at (732) 705-3636 and book your free initial diagnostic assessment. During your visit, your child and you can ask any and all questions you have about how tutoring in Aberdeen, NJ can help raise last year’s B to an A+.

It Isn’t Just About Academics

In addition to your child’s classes and their lessons, how your child feels at school and how well they have integrated socially can impact the grades they achieve. After all, a child who is being bullied or struggling to make friends isn’t likely to enjoy being at school and often won’t pay their studies much attention. Find out if your child is being bullied or even if they are the bully, along with asking about any friends they have or struggles they are encouraging joining a social circle. If you find out that there are hurdles in this area, be sure to help your child overcome them early on in the school year. Not only is this important to help them enjoy school, but it can do wonders for their report card.

No Complaining

Are you unhappy with the new principal? How about the lunch menu? Do you have concerns about how the education department is running the curriculum? These are all valid concerns and are all concerns which your child’s teacher can’t help you with. Instead, raise these with the relevant people and government bodies. It’s important that you spend the valuable time you have talking constructively about your child, how they are doing, and what you can do to help.
