Do math skills really matter later in life? They come in handy when your student needs to pass a test, but is there any other arena that calls for math skills? Good question. Let's look down the road of your child past elementary, secondary, and c..
We've all been there..... it's evening time and you find that your student is resisting doing their homework. So now, in addition to being a parent, provider, chef, taxi driver, etc, you get to be the homework enforcer. (P.S., it's a thankless job)
Harvard Graduate School of Education says, "Many parents are under the impression that they shouldn't have anything to do with their student's homework. This comes from schools emphasizing that homework is a child's responsibility, not the parent's. While it is absolutely true that a parent should not do their child's homework, there is a role for the parent."
We call that role 'homework manager'. What do the most effective managers do? They know how to delegate.
This is where Mathnasium of North Fresno comes in. Our instructors are specialized, one-on-one homework helpers that keep your child on track. The truth is homework matters. It increases understanding and confidence in academics, but it also has huge benefits outside of the subject matter. The Center for Public Education says, "Some primary-level teachers may assign homework for such benefits, which include learning the importance of responsibility, managing time, developing study habits, and staying with a task until it is completed."
Here are what some Mathnasium parents have noticed:
"My student is able to get help with those hard homework problems!" -T. S.
"My daughter is thriving! She feels supported in her homework" -N.I.
So if you're tired of the nightly homework struggle, let Mathnasium of North Fresno design a better routine for you and your child. Your child will get the benefits of completing their homework, and you will have the peace of retiring from the dreaded "homework-enforcer". You're welcome. :)
