For a parent, the first sign that their child needs tutoring is when they read their report card. However, there are signs that can help you pick up any challenges early. This article has a few to share. When a student goes out the door in the morning, there is very little a parent can do to know whether their child is struggling. Of course, if something significant occurs then their teacher will mention it. However, if they are just flying under the radar, then by the time you're reading their report card, it's probably too late. From years of providing tutoring in Upland, CA, The Tutoring Center, Upland CA has the following post to share with information on what identifiers to look out for.

"I Have an Assignment Due Tomorrow!"

When it comes to tutoring, it isn't all about the lessons in the textbooks. It is also about how to manage your time, both with a calendar to plan out assignments along with how to utilize time in the best way to maximize points from a test. If your child seems to live in a perpetual state of always having an assignment due the next day, then their challenge is time management. While it may seem trivial, poor time management skills can prevent intellectual students from achieving grades representative of their abilities. The reason wasn't that they didn't listen during class or that they don't know the answer, the reason is simply that they didn't plan enough time to complete the report or assignment, and now they are rushing to finish. The result? An incomplete assignment or report being handed in by a student who could potentially give the class a lesson. In instances like these, students can feel defeated and lose confidence simply because they feel bad about not planning ahead.

Homework Takes Too Long

Your child's teacher will never give them so much homework that they can't possibly complete it in one night. So if you notice your young student spending more time on their homework than you would expect their teacher to assign, there is a strong chance that they are struggling with the lesson. With lessons becoming more and more complex, many parents don't give late night study sessions a second thought, often considering their student to be extra conscientious. The next time that you are preparing for bed and see your child's study light is still on, ask the question: Do you need help with your homework? You will be surprised by the response you receive. Often, students, who struggle with their homework can feel uncomfortable asking for help if they see all of their classmates handing in their homework without any concern. It can sometimes just take somebody asking the question for them to take up the offer.

Erm, Yeah...I Guess I'll Do Okay

This is not the response of a student who feels confident in their abilities when asked about an upcoming exam or assignment. If this is the response that you receive when you ask about their upcoming exams or due assignments, then it could be a strong sign that they aren't confident in how they will perform. When students respond like this, it can often be because they don't want to raise your expectations as they don't hold high expectations for themselves. If you notice this response, quiz your students a little on the subject and gauge their responses. If they are a little slow to provide their responses or you know their answer is wrong, similar to the tip mentioned earlier, ask the question if they need help.
