Children deal with the challenge of changing bodies and new social expectations in middle school. It is a time when students may consider academics to be low priority. Our tutors can help move academics to a higher priority as they share with their students the importance of obtaining both short-term and long-term goals.
As students are realizing more independence, they also are finding themselves moving between multiple classrooms throughout the day, managing lockers, hauling backpacks, organizing binders, and balancing an increased homework load. Furthermore, they are also facing more difficult subject matter and concepts.
Chesterfield Learning Center tutors can have a tremendous impact on students at this age. Because adolescents often feel ashamed of slipping grades, it is important to prepare them thoroughly for exams and school projects. Tutors can help students prioritize their homework and manage their schedules, helping them ultimately become more confident, independent learners. With an emphasis on time-management skills, proper usage of a planner, and effective study habits, students can become better prepared for eventual entrance into high school.
Middle-school students often value independence and are reluctant to work with their parents. However, tutors offer a relationship that allows students to open up, feel more comfortable, and be more willing to learn and accept advice.
