Don't Waste Your Precious Teacher Interview Time

Most students are now settling into the new school year as they begin to reconnect with old friends and make new ones, along with meeting their new teachers for the first time. It is this experience which is also on the mind of every parent as they prepare to meet their child’s new teacher. To help make your meeting as productive as possible, The Tutoring Center, Dubai has the following information to share.

It All Starts With a List

Just like all good activities, this one starts with a list! Take some time to think about any of the learning challenges your child faced during the previous school year, along with any social hurdles they overcame and write it all down on a list. Once you have this, take a few days to think about any new items you might want to add, and then prioritize all of the items to your list so that you can mark them off as you progress.

Don't Talk, Just Listen

Sure, it’s a line used in many movies, and it’s also one used here. When you sit down to meet with your child’s new teacher, just sit and listen. It’s likely that the teacher has prepared some information to tell you, such as their teaching style and what they expect from their students. If you hear anything which you would like to discuss further, wait until they finish and make it part of your list discussion.

Stay on Track

Speaking of your list again, it’s time to put it to good use! During your time, be mindful that the teacher's time may be quite limited in the future, so make sure that you use all of your time wisely. With this in mind, take out your list and make your way through it from top to bottom. If you can see that the conversation is starting to veer away from your list, be sure to bring it back on topic.
