Nobody said that school would be easy. Growing up is hard, as it should be. The countless obstacles you see your child encounter, both socially and academically through lower, middle, and upper school, are shaping him or her into one day becoming a functioning member of society. So when you see your child struggle, you can rest assured that he or she isn’t alone. A few bumps in the road are good for any young person to endure. And to that extent, you should allow those bumps to happen.

However, that is a policy that most certainly has its limits. Your job as a parent is to maximize your child’s development. So when you see him or her struggling with something to the point that you suspect that he or she may not get past it, it’s your job to step in and make a difference. The first step to making that difference is knowing that signs that it’s time to step in. Look out for the following in case you suspect that your child could use extra help from Big Apple Tutoring’s Private Tutor NYC services.

Actively avoiding homework

After a long day in school, it’s understandable that kids may not want to get right down to business doing their homework as soon as they arrive home. But they have to do it if they want to keep up in class. The key is demonstrating to your child the consequences of what will happen if they neglect to do it. If you notice that your child, not on occasion, but routinely makes the effort to not do his or her homework, that means it’s time to make a change. With the right private tutor, your child will learn the importance of doing homework each night, and will gain the motivation to do it well.

Falling grades on exams and report cards

There is a delicate balance between being a helicopter parent who constantly hovers over our child’s every move and being an overly lax parent who pays no attention to what your child ever does. While you may not want to interrogate your child on his or her performance and each and every exam, you should be keeping tabs to a certain degree. Report cards are a good balance. Once you’ve noticed that your child is having trouble in one or more subjects, you can start to pay a little more attention. If you notice that those grades are continuing to fall, that’s when it’s time to look for solutions. The right tutoring service is probably the answer.

Heavy studies not leading to better results

This might be the most significant indicator of them all. If your child is indeed doing his or her homework and is demonstrating interest and drive to no avail, that is probably due to poor study and organization skills. These are the kinds of things that are necessary. And if your child lacks those skills, it doesn’t matter how hard he or she works towards better grades. They will not come without the proper guidance. That’s why Private Tutor NYC services are so important.
