Improving students’ grades is most easily achieved and maintained when it is approached as a team effort. Parents offer motivation and guidance, while a private tutor provides the extra push and one-on-one support. Involved teachers will know that students have worked hard and taken the steps to better study habits. When it comes time to report grades, this steady effort and improved initiative on the student’s part can mean the difference between a C and a B.
If students are making New Year’s resolutions to improve their grades, simply committing a goal to memory isn’t enough. Talk about it, write it down, and reflect on the progress daily. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and grades don’t improve overnight. Big changes are accomplished through small daily wins. Consistency is key.
Resolutions don’t have to be life changing to make a lasting difference, but by sharing that unwavering desire to improve their academics with those around them, students will soon discover their goals actualized and grades improved.
Happy New Year!
