The new school year isn’t just about your child meeting their new teachers, there will also be an opportunity for you to meet their teachers. Make sure you make the most of this time.

It’s no surprise that every parent wants to speak with their child’s teacher as much as possible, however, with the limited time available, regular meetings just aren’t realistic. For this reason, it's important for all parents to make the most of every parent/teacher meeting they are afforded.

How to Make the Most of Your Parent-Teacher Meeting

With this in mind, it’s important for every parent to get as much out the limited time they are given as possible. To help you achieve this, The Tutoring Center, Arlington has prepared the following post with some tips to consider when planning for your next parent-teacher meeting

A List

Have you ever left a parent-teacher meeting and suddenly remembered a number of questions and concerns which you wanted to discuss with your child’s teacher only to realize that it’s too late? The best way to overcome this is by making a list. Make some time to sit down with a coffee and create a list of all of the items you want to speak with your child’s teacher about. Be sure not to rush the task and even take the list around with you over the following couple of days in case you suddenly remember something and need to include it before you forget. Once you are confident that you have everything on the list, remember that you may not get to each item. With this thought in your mind, prioritize each of the items starting with the most important. This way you can ensure that you get to speak about what matters most before your time runs out.

Ask About the Teacher

A parent-teacher conference isn’t just about finding out how your child is doing and asking the teacher a hundred questions about how your child can achieve higher grades. It’s also a great opportunity for you to learn about the person who will be helping your child through the next school year to reach their goals and achieve success. Questions about their teaching style and classroom framework are great starting points, and the answer and conversations which ensue can often tick off a range of questions you have on your list. If you are worried about your child falling behind this school year or you just know they could have achieved higher grades on their report card last year, tutoring in Arlington, NJ can help. To find out more about subject-focused tutoring programs or the benefits of one-to-one tutoring, call The Tutoring Center, Arlington at (817)-969-5100 and book your free initial diagnostic assessment. During your first meeting, you and your student can ask all of the questions you have about how tutoring in Arlington can help your child reach their learning potential.

Don’t Be Restricted by Academics

It’s important to remember that, in addition to your child’s lessons, how they fit in at school and their social standing can have a significant impact on how well they learn and achieve. For this reason, it’s important to ask questions about how they fit in at school. For example, are they being bullied or are they a bully? Do they have a lot of friends or are they struggling to join a social circle? If your child isn’t happy at school then they aren’t going to feel motivated to learn, leading to lower grades than what they can achieve. Tackling any social challenges early on can not only help your child to feel good when they are at school but can also help them to learn better.

Don’t Ask About What Their Teacher Can’t Help With

It can be easy for a parent-teacher session to become a time where you just complain, whether it’s about the school lunch menu, the new principal, or even the structure of the education department. Whatever concerns you have which the teacher can't help with, address them with the relevant bodies or people. Instead, do your best to keep your conversations on message and flowing in a constructive way. This will help you to get through your list of questions more efficiently and also build a strong relationship with the person who is going to be teaching your child for the rest of the school year.
