Win the Homework War with Sylvan Learning!

One of the most commonly waged battles between parents and children is over homework. Even with the best of intentions, tackling this ongoing dilemma in positive and constructive ways can be a constant challenge.

The following tips from the education experts at Sylvan Learning, the leading provider of tutoring to students of all ages, grades and skill levels, are designed to help you work more effectively with your child:

  • -Be a homework manager.  Don’t do your child’s homework, but provide the structure and tools needed to complete assignments successfully.  Often, it’s the lack of planning that makes homework seem overwhelming.
  • -Know your child.  Because each child is unique, with different learning styles and academic needs, it is important to personalize the learning process.  Develop a work schedule and study environment based on your child’s personal learning style.
  • -Break long-term assignments into smaller segments.  Larger projects will be less overwhelming when viewed as a series of incremental tasks.
  • -Set milestones.  Teach your child to display completion dates on a calendar to help stay on track and complete projects on time
  • -Celebrate success.  A celebration gives your child a sense of accomplishment and pride.

I’m so glad my husband and I called Sylvan Learning Center. This was the best decision we have made regarding our daughter’s education. She needed help with reading and math. Now after attending a few months, she is like a new student. The staff is amazing. These very special teachers are so kind and patient with each and every student.”
