How to assist underperforming students

assist underperforming students

Honestly, many students have been falling behind due to the change of school dynamic. As classes have been online, young kids have lost the opportunity to socialise with their friends and the chances to run around the school playground. With the favourite parts of school being stripped away from young children, how can they continue to enjoy school? How can we expect them to continue to be enthusiastic and keep on top of all their schoolwork positively?

So, if your child is struggling, it is not an uncommon problem and here are some things you can do:

  • Pay attention to your child:

    • Look at the homework they’ve been handing in – do they need you to go through some confusing concepts with them?
    • Look at their body language and emotions when they attend online class – are they bored and not responding to the teacher?
  • Book an appointment with the class teacher and ask about your child’s progress – can they do anything about your child? Are they also noticing the same problems?

    • Please remember that teachers are also working very hard to support their students and are working exceptionally long hours.
  • Talk to your child about what you and the class teacher have noticed. Does your child recognise these issues too? Are they able to seek help from school or have they tried to do that but failed? Are they willing to share their problems?

  • If none of those steps have worked, we would love to assist you – whether it’s for us to give you some personalised advice or to introduce you to some of our 1-on-1 tutoring sessions that would possibly stir the motivation for your child to enjoy school again.
