Teenagers – back to school
So, it is that time of year again when our children go back to school. It is, I have to say, my favourite time of the year. I love the possibility that a new school year holds, but I also know that for some parents it can be really stressful and if your child is going into Year 10 or 11, I may be able to help relieve the stress. If your child is going into Year 12, you may also want to read this.
I do a lot of work with students to improve grades and I have to say that it is one of my most favourite things to do, because this is one of the things I am good at, I mean really good at! I am able to help them find the motivation that they need to do the work they need to do.
Over the last eight years, I have been using a Student Success Programme called Dare to Be Bright, which is a systematic, holistic approach to studying for exams and doing better at school. It is personalised to every individual child, helping them succeed. This system has been used again and again, and 90 % of students going through the system have increased their grades, with some raising grades in 5 subjects. Pretty impressive, I’m sure you will agree.
The system involves four distinct areas that I believe are important in helping a child reach their potential at school.
