Starting a new session without preparing is like heading a cross country without a map. You can do it, but it is rarely an efficient way to travel. Planning is very essential because it gives you a clear sense of what are trying to accomplish and how to accomplish it. Below are tips to help your child prepare for the new academic session; Set goals; to help your child achieve better performance in the new session, help them set a goal they can strive to achieve.
The starting point is to review their performance for the previous session. Since this is a new session and term, take a look at their performance in the first term of the previous session, then benchmark the goal for the new term against their last performance. For instance; if they achieved 45% in Maths, 63% in English language, 58% in Social Science, the goal for the new term should be, at least 30% more than the past achievement. Maths could be 75 %, English language 93%, etc.
If this is their first time, assume some daring figures based on your perspective of their ability. Get a home Tutor. If you want your child to get ahead, a good thing to do is to make them take extra classes with a home tutor to get prerequisites out of the way. If they’re in a school that offers more classes than the number of credits they need, these are advantages of it instead of them just taking study hall. Attend a summer school; summer school is a great way to help your child prepare for a new academic session.
If their school will not allow them to take summer school courses or they have too much planned in the summer, they should try online courses; these are often costly although they will get you the credit you need/want. When looking for online school courses make sure you check the accreditation, if the class isn’t accredited you won’t get credit for it. Prepclass has an online test prep that will help your child prepare ahead for exams. Nobody can go back and start a new beginning but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
