How do I know if my genius (child) needs tutoring?
Your genius will tell you by exhibiting one or more of the five signs below:
1. Low Self-Confidence
–When homework-time comes around, they tell you they don’t understand how to do it and want to easily give up. Having a successful tutor, can increase your genius’ confidence in and out of the classroom.
2. Declining grades
-Your genius’ grades were declining the previous year. If your genius was struggling the year before, this means they are STILL behind in meeting the standards for their grade level the previous year. Get them caught up with the standards they were struggling with by getting a tutor.
3. Poor Time Management
-Your genius takes too long to complete their homework. According to the National PTA and the National Education Association, children should get 10 minutes of homework a night per grade level. For example, a fifth grader would have 50 minutes of homework per night.
4. Lack of focus
-Your genius’ teacher notifies you that your genius was being disruptive in class and has trouble paying attention. Your genius may act out by being disruptive because they are not understanding the material being taught. Their lack of focus may be a cry for help. A tutor can help pinpoint the areas your genius is struggling in and create a learning plan that best suits their needs.
-Your genius tells you, “I don’t care about school. I hate school. I don’t care about my grades.” Your genius may be feeling unmotivated in school because they are not understanding the way they are being taught and feel like there is no point in trying. Your genius may want to know ‘what’s in it for them?’ With the help of a tutor, the three of you can work together to set goals and a create reward system. For example, your genius loves playing video games. Use this as a reward to motivate your genius to complete the task at hand.
