The school holidays maybe just around the corner and for younger children this will mean lots of fun as they enjoy all the chocolates and beach days but for households with teenagers this will mean revision time as many will be returning to important exams in May and June.
Make sure your child has a revision plan for the holiday and ask them if there is anything they need help with. It may simply be testing them or you could discover there is a topic that they don’t understand fully. Hopefully as the parent you will be able to explain it in a clear & precise manner however, it could turn out to be more complicated. Many parents are discovering that the way subjects such as Maths is taught these days is not how they were taught in the old days! Or it could simply be that your child does not work well with you. What ever the reason help is at hand in Dubai with companies offering tutors.
