Some Do's and Dont's of Home Provision.

Unread post by admin_bbw » Jun 13th, '17, 11:35

Do's
1. Before starting the home provision always have the tutor speak with your childs school resource teacher to plan a priority list of subjects.
2. Always have the room being used calm.
3. Make sure your child understands that the tutor is there to help them and that its ok to ask questions.
4. Ask the tutor if there are any workbooks you should get.
5. Have plenty of note paper, pens, pencils, colouring pencils and a ruler ready.
6. Keep any home provision work items in a clear plastic A4 binder clearly labelled with their name.
7. To help with their organisation skills, always have your child organise their own items before and tidy up themselves after each session.
8. Always have nice biscuits for the tutors tea break.
9. To help your childs organisation skills always
a. - For older children 10/11/12+: have your child make a tea/coffee for the tutor and organise the milk, sugar, biscuits and do the tidy up after.
b. - For younger children: have your child organise the milk, sugar and biscuits for the tutors tea break and do the tidy up after.
10. Discuss with the tutor about maybe leaving a radio talk show on low in the room to mimic background classroom noise.
11. Ease your child into the sessions by only doing an hour or hour and half for the 1st day or two.
12. Always check in with tutors at the end of sessions. We'd suggest a short review at the end of every week of no more than 10 or 15 minutes.
13. Give your tutor a copy of the confirmation letter and keep your copy in a safe place.
14. When you and the tutor have completed the payment claim diary sheet keep a copy for your own records.
15. At the end of the home provision, if you're happy with the tutor, give some thought to asking them to continue working with your child during the school year once a week.
16. Make sure the payment request forms are returned to the Dept of Ed before the August deadline.
17. Practice items 9a and 9b in the days and weeks before the home provision starts. Let the tutor know that's the plan and let them supervise. Mammies and daddies must resist the temptation to get involved.

Don't
1. Start the home provision if you have not received your confirmation letter.
2. Be constantly checking if everything is OK.
3. Allow other children in the house run around during tuition sessions making lots of noise creating disturbances. If necessary take other children in the house out for a walk or to the local playground.
4. Start noisy washing machines or vacuum cleaners while tuition is happening.
5. Spend too much time discussing what tutors will be doing during a session, have this discussion after they speak with your childs school resource teacher before the home provision starts.
6. Get involved if child is misbehaving, unless its a major meltdown or major tantrum. After the session finishes when all is calm and settled then discuss it with your child. Chat about what they could have done instead, if they were frustrated or annoyed. This takes practice, no one approach works with all children.
7. Do more than 40hrs in total, 10hrs per week.
8. Use the home provision for day trips or excursions.
