Before tutoring sessions, check to see that their backpacks contain plenty of paper, notebooks, pencils, erasers, and binders. From time to time, remember to periodically stock up on school supplies!

School supplies are a must, but please leave cell phones and game consoles at home. At ICan Education, we encourage parents not to pack toys, games, or anything that might distract your child during their tutoring session.

Also, make sure your child has packed their homework along with any important documents such as report cards, incomplete homework slips, and evaluation reports for their tutors. At ICan Education we also provide reference materials. Make sure to check if your child has packed them in their school bags.  If you have any questions on what your child should be bring to their tutoring sessions, please call the ICan Education location your child is enrolled in.

Step 3: Prepare a Snack 


Be sure to prepare a light snack for your child such as sandwiches, some cheese and crackers, fruits, or a smoothie with carrots. You don’t want your child to be starving during the tutoring sessions. Keep snacks healthy and stay away from fried foods or something really heavy like cheeseburgers and fries.

Heavy meals make students lethargic during tutoring hours, so let them have something light to keep their tummies full! When students are well-nourished, they’ll be far more ready to concentrate on material addressed during their ICan Education tutoring sessions.

Step 4: Arrive On Time

After snack time, it’s time to get the kids to their tutoring session on time! Make sure your kids are dressed for the weather and also include an extra sweater in their school bags, if it’s a little chilly outside.

Finally, give yourself enough driving time to arrive at least 5 minutes earlier than the scheduled tutoring session. Drop them off at ICan Education, kiss them goodbye, and off they go to conquer the world!
