Believe it or not, the school year is winding down. We know, we feel like it just started too. But before your kids can run off on their summer adventures, they have to endure the wrath of tests and final exams. While some students are able to go through the motions without much effort, others find the process to be absolutely excruciating.
Math and science subjects can be particularly stress-inducing for many, but according to Vanessa Vakharia, a lot of that can be reduced with a few simple steps, and having a teacher that understands that not all students learn the same way.
Vakharia failed high school math twice, and was under the impression that she just wasn’t a “math person,” until a new teacher took a different approach with her and she flew to the top of the class. Impressive, right? It’s this lesson that’s most important for your kids. If they begin to think that they simply aren’t meant to understand these subjects, their anxiety will grow since they know they still have no choice but to get through it. If they can see that everyone has the potential to learn and improve, then they will likely be able to approach their tests and looming deadlines with a fresh, and more relaxed perspective.
