Get the Most out of Your Parent-Teacher Time

Now the new school year is in full swing and your child has had their chance to get to know their teachers, it will soon be time for you to have a similar opportunity. To help you prepare for a parent-teacher meeting, The Tutoring Center, Greer has prepared the following post.

Make a List

The first place to start is by making a list. This will help you prevent the all-too-common scenario in which parents return home only to remember an important item they wanted to bring up with their child's teacher. Of course, by the time they have returned home, it’s too late and there is no certainty as to when the next opportunity will be. Start by writing down questions or concerns about your child’s weaknesses, including any particular challenges they faced during the previous school year, then move to their strengths, and finally their academic or career aspirations.

Prioritize

As much as you would like to speak about each of the items on your list, some of the items take longer to discuss than you thought. For this reason, it’s important that any crucial items are at the top of your list so that you can ensure these are spoken about. Then, rearrange the items on your list with the mindset of not having sufficient time.

If the Teacher Can’t Help Then Don’t Bring It Up

It is all too easy to complain to the teacher about how the new principal is running the school, the state-set curriculum, or even the quality of the food being served in the cafeteria. However, none of these are items which the teacher can directly help you with. Talking about items such as these during your parent-teacher meeting only works to waste your valuable time. Instead, take up these issues with the person or body directly, and stick to your list and items which the teacher can directly assist with.
