Don't Waste Your Precious Parent-Teacher Time

The new school year has begun and your child has settled in and learned about what is coming up in the year ahead and learned about their new teacher. Soon, parents will have a similar opportunity. The Tutoring Center, Garland TX has prepared the following post aimed at helping you make the most of your parent-teacher meeting.

You Need a List

Too many parents return home after their meeting and are suddenly reminded of an important item which they wanted to speak with their child’s teacher about, but forgot to bring it up during the meeting. Of course, by this time it’s too late and there is no certainty around when there will be another opportunity. The best way to prevent this is to create a list. Set aside some time and consider what you want to speak with your child’s teacher about. Center your questions and concerns around their strengths, weaknesses learning challenges, and even their career goals.

Rearrange Each Item

As much as you would like to speak about each of the items you have on your list, it may occur that you run out of time and aren’t able to tick each item off. To prepare for this eventuality, prioritize each item with the most important ones at the top. This way, if you do run out of time, you will have spoken about what matters the most. Once you have this, don’t be afraid to take it to the meeting with you and mark it off as your meeting progresses.

Can Their Teacher Help With It?

If you have any concerns about the school or the curriculum which your child’s teacher can’t directly help you with, it’s best not to bring it up and, instead, raise it with the correct person or body. While it can be tempting to speak with their teacher about your grievances, if the teacher isn’t able to help then it will use up your valuable time when you could be talking about areas which can impact your child and their learning.
