4 easy ways to get back into the tuition term…

Oh holidays…sometimes it can feel like they take FOREVER to arrive and then they’re gone in the blink of an eye!  We hope you had a wonderful school holiday!

So, In the face of a new term how can you ease your child back into tuition?

1. GET ORGANISED:

•Your child might need a little
extra help getting organised in
the first week back. Prompt
them to think about what they
need for their session and where
possible have it ready the day
before.

• Lacking motivation? Encourage
your child to write down-
a) One thing they need to ask
their tutor about.
…OR….
b) Something they need to work
on in tuition this week.

2. REST:

Remember that your child
will most likely be extra tired in the
first week back and may need an
earlier night the day before tuition.
If possible, get your child outside
(with lots of extra winter layers!)
and out for a run around before
their tutor arrives.

3. FOOD:

Back to school hunger will
likely strike in the middle of a
tuition session so have some
healthy snacks (nuts, avocado,
fruit, cheese & biscuits) and water
on hand to keep your child’s
concentration up during a session.

4. REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS:

Know that it usually takes a week or so to
get back into the routine of tuition
(even more so with younger
children). With the return to school
and the onslaught of extra
curricular activities students get
tired quickly at the end of the
school day. So, encourage your
child to talk to their tutor and use
part of their first session back as a
space to regroup, check in with
their organisational skills and get
on top of school homework and
assignments.

With these handy tips up your sleeve your child will be back into the swing of tuition in no time! And remember, if you have any concerns about your child then have a quick chat with your tutor and/or contact us  so we can help.

Happy term 3 & happy learning!!
