How to motivate my ten year old student to study

Postby purebeauty » Mon Mar 09, 2020 8:45 am

Hello.

I work as a private math tutor.

I have a student, she is 10 years old. Her mother has asked me to provide assistance in preparation for the admission process to the eight-year high school.

My student is extremely unmotivated to study math. Last week she told me that she has lost all her papers containing examples, that I gave her as a homework. Her mother has found all the papers later - the examples there were not computed. In addition, when I come to their house, my client, at least in the last couple of lessons, always comes late and sits late (5-7min) to her chair.

My analysis is that she has no desire for acquiring new knowledge in mathematics.

question: What can I do to motivate my young client to study?

I have talked to one friend, who already has a child, and he told me, that if a child is ordered to do something, it can either work or the child can create even a stronger resistance than before.

Thank you.

what not to do:
shouting or bribing. that will only make it worse

instead study with the child. you can study advanced maths while keeping the book of general math before the child.

watching the teacher learn n put effort is inspiring. at least it was for me.
