Our tutors at GeoVLE offer homework study sessions and independent learning support for children of all ages over Zoom. Our homework study sessions are geared towards helping a small group of children with their schoolwork when local lockdowns mean that they haven’t got such easy access to their teachers. In addition to personalised tuition, small group study sessions encourage independence - these are all about teaching students how to structure their days and use online tools to support their learning during the times that they aren’t in direct communication with their teachers.
Top tips for home learning...
Talk with your child about what subject areas they can tackle on their own, and where they may need your support. You may find that your child can breeze through their history assignments, but needs some assistance staying on task with reading. When you know where your child can fly on their own and where you need to help, you're able to have set times that you can dig into your own work.
Be sure to get fun time as a family as well. When you're working to get the most out of your child's blended online education and manage your own work schedule, it's easy for the day to feel full of work, from start to finish. It's important that you still spend time together as a family, even if that just means going for a walk around the block and not talking about work or school.
Stay in close communication with your child's teacher about where your child is doing well and where they need some extra help. While your child's teacher may not be able to tailor everything to your child's needs, they'll be able to look at overall feedback from parents to figure out where students need a little extra help.
Home education and blended online education can be tough, but it's not an impossible task, even if you're saddled with working from home. At Geovle Limited, we're here to help you make the best of this time at home with your student(s).
