Check with local churches or other non-profit groups. Some churches sponsor tutoring. College students may come in once a week or once a month to offer help to students.
Add Exercise to Your Child's Daily Routine
Exercise helps get the brain moving. Research has shown that children that participate in regular exercise do better on tests and are less fidgety in school. Incorporating exercise into your child's daily routine can help him settle down, focus better and get better grades.
Understand your Child's Learning Style
Your child learns best when many different interactive approaches are used and he is actively participating in learning. Even so, each of us has a specific way we learn. For some, it can be visual, for others hearing the lesson helps the most. If you understand your child's learning style, you can create study strategies that are most likely to help him retain the information.
Encourage Group Learning Experiences
It is easier to become actively involved in learning in a group setting, rather than sitting and reading a chapter alone. The internet offers many different learning groups your child can participate in to help him understand the work.
