How to Use Your Parent-Teacher Time Wisely

Now that students have had a chance to settle into the new school year and get to know their teachers, it’s soon time for parents to learn about the person who will be helping their child reach their academic goals. Below is a great post from The Tutoring Center, Houston TX which can help you to make the most out of your parent-teacher meeting.

Start By Writing a List

Many parents attend their allotted parent-teacher interview without a list and without much preparation. Unfortunately, this often leads these parents to return home after the meeting only to suddenly remember a range of important items they wanted to speak about but have now missed the opportunity to do so. Avoid this by setting aside some time and creating a list of items you wish to speak about. When creating this list, consider items like any learning challenges your child experienced last school year, their strengths, and even their academic or career goals.

Prioritize Your List

Once you are sure that you have every item listed, the next step is to rearrange them so that the most important items are first. By doing this, you can prevent important items not being spoken about because your time was cut short or your discussions about other items took longer than you expected. When you take your list with you, be sure to work your way through it starting from the top. It can be easy for the conversation to make you jump around your list, so do your best to stay on track.

Don’t Waste Time

If you have any concerns, ranging from how the school is being run to the healthiness of the food being served, instead of bringing them up during your parent/teacher meeting, direct them to the appropriate person or body which can help. It can be easy to start complaining to your child’s teacher about aspects of your child’s school experience which their teacher can’t help you with, leading you to lose valuable time when you should be talking about what they can help you with.
