In today's competitive education environment, one of the toughest questions for parents is identifying if their children need additional support to succeed in school.
With back-to-school just around the corner and the SAT/ACTs not far behind, parents can start to work with their child now to make the most of the coming academic year.
Based on a wealth of experience, Revolution Prep has compiled 10 things parents can listen for from kids to determine if their child needs academic assistance:
1. "I work hard and study, but I still can't understand all of the concepts."
Never miss a local story.
2. "I'm taking two Advanced Placement classes next year, and it's going to be a challenge to maintain my 3.8 GPA."
3. "No matter how much I cram or what approach I try, I struggle on tests."
4. "I've always gotten As and Bs, but I want to get straight As."
5. "I'm so busy with sports, band and other extracurriculars, I can't find time to do all the schoolwork I need to do."
6. "I think I'm doing OK, but you want me to do better."
7. "AP tests are coming up soon, and I need some help to make sure I get the score I want."
8. "I try to pay attention, but I find myself daydreaming in class."
9. "The teacher explains things in a way I don't understand."
10. "I need to do great on the SAT/ACT to get into my first-choice university, but didn't make the minimum score on my PSAT or practice tests."
