It is very difficult to get kids to study and do their homework these days – what with television, the iPad, computer games and Facebook. Parents have to compete with all these sources of fun and stimulation. How can Math, Filipino and HeKaSi ever compare?
The reality is that studying is seen as a chore – difficult, tiring, boring, and sometimes painful – by the child. Similarly, as a parent, motivating your child to study can be very challenging as well.
Luckily, help is here -- Tutoring 101 for Parents. Facilitated by Karina Therese G. Fernandez, PhD. of the Ateneo de Manila University’s Department of Psychology, the goal of this seminar is to equip parents with knowledge and skills on positive discipline, academic motivation, and social support grounded on psychological theories and empirical research. Parents will learn how to create an encouraging atmosphere of learning, along with practical tips on what to say and not say, do and not do while reviewing your children.
Tutoring 101 for Parents will be held on September 22, Saturday, at the Faber Hall of the Ateneo de Manila University in Katipunan from 9 am to 12 noon. Seminar fee of P500 includes all materials. To reserve a slot, call 426-6001 local 5268 or 399-0693. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org. Limited slots available.
