Many students seem are good at understanding concepts at school when the teacher is there to help. However, once it is time to do their homework, they can easily become confused and lost. Homework is already a chore for students after spending all day at school so to help, The Tutoring Center in Long Beach would like to offer a few homework help tips to make things a little smoother for your child.
Have a Routine
Just like many aspects of everyday life, having a daily homework routine will really help in the long run. It is a good idea to allow a short break between school and homework so your child doesn’t feel overwhelmed. Establish the amount of time that you will allow your child to have free to themselves. If they typically arrive home at 3:30pm, maybe allow an hour to relax and eat a snack before getting into homework. Whatever you decide, just stick to it in order to develop routine.
Designate a Space
Getting work done is always easiest at a work station. You’d be hard-pressed to find a business man’s office without a desk. Similarly, your child needs a designated space in which to work. You and your child should agree on a set place for them to work at. The ideal place should be free of any distractions
and comfortable enough to spend long periods of time, but not so comfortable that the child falls asleep.
Lend a Helping Hand
Don’t disadvantage your child by doing their work for them, but have someone present in case they need assistance. In many situations using a private learning center can give the one-on-one instruction your child needs, as well as a wonderful, motivating working environment.
