Primary school to Year 9 Tutors that come to you



Why homework has a positive effect on children.

During my time in Primary School, I was so focused in class to do the best that I could that I was continuously tired, run down and ‘couldn’t be bothered’ when it came to doing my homework. I simply didn’t understand its relevance in relation to my school work. I have now realised that homework benefits you as an individual.

As Robert Forest states: “No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise for the writer, no surprise for the reader.”

I once knew of a child whose Primary School did not teach him the key Mathematical concepts until Grade Five. This was a major educational barrier for the child when learning new topics. The parents were aware that this was an area of concern, so they knew that if it wasn’t handled now it may jeopardise his future studies. His parents tried to seek help but were unaware of what strategies to utilise and therefore were having little to no success in assisting their child’s learning boundaries.

Did the child receive the help needed to get back on track? 

The child was assisted in the areas he found difficult by a tutor, through accommodating for the child’s learning needs as well as positive reinforcement. The child quickly understood that the real reason for homework was to revise and reinforce what was learned during the day.

Believe it or not, after being so far behind, he is now happily above the curriculum standard in Mathematics.

How did he build confidence to reach the standard level?

He was able to build confidence through ongoing support and guidance, as well as the supportive and determined relationship he formed with his parents and the tutor through daily exercises.

His confidence grew further with a decision made by his parents of moving him to another school that covered Mathematics more thoroughly. He found that his new school had positive aspects of learning which incorporated fun and innovative techniques with what was being covered.

So, what’s the purpose of homework?

Homework is not meant to be additional learning, it is there for the child to reinforce what topics were tackled in class and figure out where they are having trouble. Having a routine was a proven changing point for the child to excel and skill build as an everyday task. This benefits children with their auditory processing for their future learning.

It is a proven fact that children beat around the bush when it comes to education. Have you ever stopped to think, why?
