Taking the Hell out of Homework

Homework can often be a source of family strife and argument, particularly for students who struggle academically. All too often homework is seen as having to do more school work at home and an unwelcome intrusion into private time when students would rather be listening to their favourite music; watching the TV or a DVD or chatting online with their friends.

Taking the Hell Out of Homework is a rich source of ideas and strategies to help students complete homework more easily and with less stress. It is also a book for parents and carers who are desperate to help their children with homework but who sure not sure how to do it. Simple strategies and tricks of the trade are presented which are easy to use and effective for 6 year olds to 16+.

The techniques have been used in special "Parent and Child" workshops throughout the UK and in New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore. Parents that have taken part in the workshops, know that these techniques work, now you can learn them, too.

Client Feedback

I shared the ideas and methods that I learned in the course with my colleagues in a sharing session after the final examination in the 2015-2016 school year. I recommended colleagues to attend this course as this is the most stimulating and inspiring course that I, as a teacher with more than 20 years of experience, have ever attended. Not only is the course presenting theories, it also introduces a lot of practical teaching ideas, teaching aids and resources such as websites to colleagues. I will suggest the principal to allocate funds and human resources to build up teaching materials and aids such as vocabulary writing cards with sound boxes, alphabet arcs and clothes line and pegs for sentence building, etc.
