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.
There should be absolutely no pressure and we want to do everything to preserve the curiousness and creativity that every child brings into this world. This is a vital time in which we lay the base for life long learning.
Now is the time where assumptions about oneself are built. Suddenly someone gives you a grade and your parents start comparing these grades. Before you know it your child can make the subconscious decision that school and learning is too hard for them and give up.
We absolutely want to prevent that and I can show you how.
Other age groups
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.
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.
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.
