Tutor helping struggling child with math and science
12/17/2014
While we are about to enter winter break, we know that the second semester will be here before we know it. At the beginning of the school year we at The Tutoring Center in Bear gave you some tips on how to stay organized this school year and now we’d like to take it a step further by giving you tips to help your child create a study schedule for the second semester. 

This is especially important if your child is in middle school as middle school students are given significantly more homework each year, especially as compared to elementary school. Know that your child should be expected to do between 1 and 2 hours of homework each night in middle school. 

The skeleton for your study schedule should revolve around the school calendar provided by your district. Make sure you make room for vacations, holidays, and standardized tests. 

Sit down with your child and determine when the best time for study and homework is. Your child may be involved in a sport or other extracurricular activity that calls for his or her attention right after school. Remember that academics should be a priority for your child. 

You should also schedule in a weekly meeting time with your child to talk about how things are going. Ask him or her about teachers, classes, any tests coming up, and so forth. Make sure you make space for studying for those in the calendar as well. 

If you begin scheduling study time with your child in late elementary or middle school, by the time he or she gets to high school it should become second nature and rather easy, even without your assistance. Be sure to take the time to see how your child is progressing, talk with him or her, as well as the teachers who are supervising. If you should find that your child is in need of extra academic assistance, be sure to keep The Tutoring Center in mind. For tutoring in Bear, contact us at (302)-832-2400.
