Another email from a parent during distance learning
About a week and a half prior, a parent emailed me upset at how her daughter was doing in math. We had just had a test and the student was so overwhelmed by not understanding that she was crying and had to take a break from the quiz to calm down before continuing (my quizzes are usually 10 questions long, simple answers). For the next quiz, which would be happening on a Wednesday, I reached out to the parent the Friday before and asked if her daughter would benefit from a little one on one with me before taking the test since she isn’t getting any extra support like she would at school. Her mom replies:
You’ve brought tears to my eyes!This is so kind and considerate of you to give your time for her.She has done pretty well with the fractions part but any additional help would definitely be beneficial, absolutely.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!She’s thrilled at the idea of it being just you and her!
