Homework Tips

The benefits of knowing your child’s learning style will alleviate homework frustrations and battles while building parent-child relationships. What was once an unpleasant experience can now be empowering moments of achievement!

We will teach your child how to work independently using their specific learning style techniques.  When children know how they learn best they develop a “can do” attitude and the self-confidence to tackle learning tasks.

Additional Tips:

Some children use a combination of styles but have a defined preference for a specific one. Once you know your child’s learning style, you can help their classroom teacher with specific activities that will help your child learn best. What is really great about this is other children in the classroom will benefit also.
