Tutors Can Help the High School Transition

The first year of high school is a period of adjustment. High school brings new academic challenges with harder workloads and a pressure that every grade will now matter for their ultimate college choice.

A tutor can help a student adjust to the new environment and build successful study habits. Help from a tutor can ease a student’s anxieties in addition to providing expertise in subject areas. Students will face a heavier academic load in high school and have the new experience of self-reliance when dealing with their teachers. A tutor can help a student adjust to the faster academic pace of high school and manage the increased amount of homework.

As a parent there are things that you can do to help with this transition.
-Introduce yourself to your child’s guidance counselor early on and consider opportunities to involve yourself in school committees and activities.
-Encourage your child to involve themselves in the extracurricular activities that interest them.
-Help them develop academic independence and accountability.
