It’s perfectly normal for a student to have difficulties from time to time with one or more subjects in school. And as Eileen Huntington, co-founder of Huntington Learning Center says, “Many students who did fine with basic reading, writing and math may experience problems as subjects become more complex.” How can you recognize the warning signs before your student brings home a poor report card or becomes totally discouraged? Huntington offers several red flags to watch for in subjects such as math or science:
Huntington Learning Center offers subject tutoring for students in middle school and high school. “We offer one-to-one tutoring in all math and science classes and in other subjects,” Huntington says. “We work with students who want to improve a grade, those who are struggling to do homework and everyone in between,” And though many students seek help once they begin falling behind, others may be less forthright with their struggles, Huntington reminds parents. “The obvious red flags are poor grades and elevated frustration at homework time, but if you suspect that your student is lost in class and could use individualized help, it’s never too late to get started.” Contact the Huntington Learning Center at 1 800 CAN LEARN or www.huntingtonhelps.com
