Particularly when your child is in elementary school, you’ll want to ensure you as the parent are doing your best to keep in communication with the school about what your child needs in order to continue progressing well. Specifically, you’ll want to be in touch with your child’s teacher. There are multiple ways you can maintain contact, and today The Tutoring Center in Roseville would like to remind you of some of the most tried methods that work. 

At the beginning of the school year, be looking for your invitation to the Open House at your child’s school. This may happen prior to the school year’s beginning or it could happen during the first week of school. The purpose of this meeting is to invite all of the parents and their children to see the school, the classroom, and of course, to meet the teacher. If this is your first meeting with your child’s teacher, make sure you let him or her know that you are available for any communication they wish to have about your child. Make yourself open and available to the teacher so that he or she knows you can be contacted and are concerned. 

Later in the year, you should receive notification that it is time for Parent/Teacher conferences. These conferences are generally between the teacher and the parent(s) of one child at a time. Here you’ll be able to get feedback from the teacher on the progress of your child, as well as having the opportunity to ask questions or address any concerns you have. Again, take this time to let the teacher know of your availability. 

Though you may not be able to volunteer to be at the school on a regular basis during the day, find ways to get involved. If you can take one day out of the week to volunteer to read to the class, decorate for the holidays, or even help organize, do so. If you are completely unable to help during the day, find out when the PTA meetings are and get involved there. They’re usually in the evening so that working parents have a better chance of being able to attend. 

Do not be afraid to periodically check in with your child’s teacher. You can do this by email or stopping by, but keep in mind that a teacher will generally prefer you make an appointment. Checking in regularly can help you indicate areas in which your child is in need of assistance, as well as having a better understanding of where your child is doing well. 

Once you’ve had an opportunity to discuss with your child the ways he or she can become a better student and established open lines of communication with your child’s teacher, you may find that your child could use some extra assistance in an academic area. Remember that The Tutoring Center has a ready and professional tutoring staff here to help. For tutoring in Roseville, contact us at 916-771-4100.
