3 Tips to Foster Optimal Learning in Kids, New York, New York

As a parent, you want to do everything possible to give your child a leg up in their academic pursuits. Fortunately, there are some tasks you can do to support their studies and help them realize their full potential. Below, the reading and math tutors at FasTracKids in Brooklyn, NY, share a few tips to encourage better learning skills and habits.

Reading & Math Tutors’ Guide to Encouraging Effective Learning

1. Make Subject Areas Practical & Accessible

It's typically easy for a child to see how basic subject areas, like reading and algebra, are useful in everyday settings. But more complex topics, like geometry and science, can have a less-clear connection to daily applications. When your child is tackling these challenging areas, bring the material into the real world. For example, demonstrate a simple real-time experiment, such as exploring what happens when vinegar interacts with baking soda.

2. Inspire Independence

math tutorOne major goal of any learning—whether at home, school, or with a reading or math tutor—is to inspire the student to work independently and love the topics being taught. As a parent, this means giving them space to explore a subject on their own, allowing them room to make mistakes and experiment with their own solutions. Don't hover over them as they work on complicated subjects; instead, give them ample room to understand the topic on their own and learn from their mistakes.

3. Don't Be Afraid of Technology

Technology is a major part of life, and many parents are concerned about the potential downsides of our hyperconnected society. But when it comes to learning, technology offers some excellent ways to engage students in challenging subjects. Incorporate online interactive learning games into their regular study routines; it’s another way to approach the material and can make a dull subject more interesting.

The reading and math tutors at FasTracKids are invested in using educational techniques that foster optimal learning. They also offer after-school programs, gifted and talented test prep classes, and other opportunities for students to learn, grow, and thrive.
