Significant Challenges in Education

This is the second in a series of blogs on some significant issues in education in the US. It is about the “teacher shortage” in the US. Why did I put that in quotes? Well, because if you look at the literature and follow the media, and if you talk to teachers and to...

Math- You Can’t Just Love It or Leave It

No Choice: They Are Both Important

If you live near a high school, you’ve probably already heard the marching bands practicing, the skirmishes in football, and maybe even the activities on the soccer and lacrosse fields. School is open, the teams are working and the spirit is soaring.

But what about those kids who are faltering? Those who are finding it hard to stay on the team, or keep to their academics because of the athletic schedule, or just finding the time and energy to do it all? And then we have the parents who must be the home academic deans and athletic directors to help their students juggle it all. Would everyone be better off if schools eliminated sports in order to focus more on academics? While there is a movement in that direction, several studies have shown that athletes are more likely to finish high school, and with higher grades, than non-athletes.

So what are we to do? Visit the link below to read our entire post on the topic and how New England Tutors can help your student excel!

With summer vacation coming to an end and many of our students heading off to college for the first time. For many students, moving away to college is the first chance they have to step out on their own and be responsible for their own lives. Being in control of finances is just one of the many new responsibilities for freshmen in college, and all too often we hear of students calling home in just the first few weeks to ask for more money. Poor money skills and a lack of financial discipline is a recipe for disaster.

While it isn’t easy, there are ways to make sure this does not happen while still making sure our student is happy while away at school. Our latest blog post is a great overview of how to help your student get on a path of managing and budgeting his or her own money. Just check the link below!
