Johnny, your grades have begun slipping. How do you think the class is going- is everything ok?
I don't like to ask for help.
What can I do at home to help him?
Errrrr. I'm ok.
I'd like to meet with your parents. I'll email them today. Please talk to them too and tell them we've had this chat.
Not at all! Don't worry, I'm here to help.
Am I in trouble?
Johnny's grades have slowly gone from a B+ to a C-. In class he's quieter than usual. I think he feels a little overwhelmed with the learning material and class content. Has he spoken to you about this?
Hmmm. He has been quiet at home too. He spends a a lot of time in his room - he says he's studying
Please don't worry, many students go through this. I suggest you can ask him about his studies and encourage him to do his homework somewhere you can see & help him. I will email you some resources that may help too.
Johnny, your last piece of homework was great! It shows you can use the words in context- well done! Did you use the extra material I gave you?
Thank you! It really helped me....and my Dad helped me to check over it.
I'm happy to say Johnny is making good progress. He seems happier in class and his grades are improving. ....so thank you for your support.
I will be sure to keep in touch, but please email me anytime if you have any questions or concerns.
I'm very happy to hear this. Thank you. Yes Johnny has told me he feels more confident doing his school work.
