Tips for Getting the Most from Your Parent-Teacher Meeting

The new school year isn’t just a time for your child to get to know their new teacher. It’s also a time for parents to learn about the person who will be helping their child prepare for exams and assignments throughout the year.  The Tutoring Center, Roseville has the following post to help parents prepare for their first parent-teacher meeting of the new school year.

Start With a List

The best place to start is to make a list. Set aside some time to sit down and think about all of the items you would like to speak about with your child's teacher. This could include your child’s strengths, their weaknesses, any challenges you expect them to have, as well as their learning and career goals. Be sure to add everything you can think of to your list. When this is finished, carry your list with you over the next few days so that you can add to it when you suddenly think of something you forgot.

Narrow It Down

It may be that you won’t have enough time to talk about all of the items on the list, so it’s important to prioritize. By doing this, you can minimize the chances that you will arrive home after the meeting only to realize that you didn’t speak about some of the most important items on your list simply because you remembered them last when you wrote your list.

Don’t Forget About the Teacher

In addition to speaking about your child, make some time to ask about your child’s teacher. A good way to do this is to start by asking about their experience, their preferred teaching style, what’s ahead in the coming year, and any challenges they expect your child to face. Often, these questions can encourage answers to items on your list, helping you to both learn about the teacher and answer your set questions.
