13 -15 years
Those teenager years can be tough. The whole brain is getting rewired and there are times when it actually is NOT working.
I like to ask parents how much they can remember of their eighth grade, most parents pull a blank and have no idea. The only important thing becomes our changing body and the other sex (or the same for that matter). Unfortunately it is that time where school work picks up and it suddenly becomes very important to keep up with school work in order to lay a good foundation for upcoming tests and exams. We as parents want them to have every chance in life (great university, good job) but find ourself with a 14 year old who couldn’t be bothered with school work at all.
There are ways in which to change this predicament, so that they do not fall back in school and can still enjoy that first party and that first kiss.
Other age groups
6 - 9 years
Congratulations! You have a schoolchild! Do you find that after a promising start at school, it suddenly has become hard? In this age group we try to keep learning as fun as possible.
10 - 12 years
Now that your child has grown it starts to do lots of things by himself. He wants to become more and more independent but somehow this independency has not reached the schoolwork yet.
How I Work
In order for you children to be successful learners I have established a 3 - step system
Creating an optimal working environment
Children are ver suceptable to their surroundings and the atomsphere. They will only thrive in an atmosphere that meets their basic learning needs.
Did you know that there are four different kinds of learners? Do you know which type you are? Maybe your child is a very different type than you and maybe his or her type does not work well with the way things are taught in school. I have seen children from failing to thriving in a matter of weeks, just because we changed the way they learn. I will help you to find out what type of learner your child is and then we will gather ideas how best to learn with him or her.
Giving responsibility back
Now that you’ve created an optimal work environment for your child and we know how your child learns best, it ist time to give back the responsibility. I want you to be able to go back to your work and your child to do his or her work on its a. I will teach you how to gradually reduce your input until your child is able to do all his schoolwork by himself.
Has homework become a major issue in your family life? Have you caught yourself in finishing homework or doing whole projects for your kids? I bet you know that doing the work for them is only a short term solution. But what to do, when every word they need to write becomes a battle and the clock is ticking and you do not want them to get into trouble in school?
I am here to help and to offer tools how you can help your child gain back their responsibility for their work so that you have time to do your own.
