English, Reading, Writing, & History
Organization, Time Management, and Self-discipline. These are life skills that will always benefit your student. Implementing them now will create habits for the future as they take ownership of their binders, class notes, tests, and homework assignments. The details matter! Occasionally we discover that our student is not struggling with the concept, but rather keeping their schedule clear. If a student is forgetting assignments, losing papers, or cramming for a test at the last minute, this can result in a lower grade. By learning how to self-manage, students will not only improve their grades but also reduce their stress levels.
Do random commas or dangling clauses pop up in your student's work? Do they understand how to put together an essay outline, rough draft, and final draft? Writing with eloquence and correct punctuation go a long way. We equip students to own their writing -- from proper punctuation to their main thesis idea. Perhaps memorizing people from history has always been a challenge? Or dates and timelines are hard to keep straight?
