Each parent wants their child to succeed and be the best student that they could be. The best students are the ones who come to school  prepared to pay attention accept their assignments,and do their best in school,whatever they may be. Here are 5 tips to help your child  become the best student that they could be.

  • Make your child understand that disobedience is not an option

A teacher would consistently say that the best student is those who are well behaved. Good behavior  would start at home not at school because even the best teachers would find  it difficult to discipline a child who has been raised as a disrespectful child. Ensure that your child knows the rules of proper behavior .When they break the rules,enforce them with a firm and even hand. A few research shows that the child’s level of self-control would be positively associated with their school achievement.

  • Assign your  child  a fair share of day-to-day housework

Time and time again, teachers would say that the best students are those who continue to their daily homework.Remember the more responsible a child  is within his or her family,the more responsible they will become.

  • Limit electronic entertainment to non school days only and even then only allow them not more than  5 hours a week.

Screen time of any sort would decrease a child’s attention span. Learning from a real life, flesh-and-blood teacher would require  a student to ask questions, answer questions, and more to memorize some things and listen to what teacher has to say about their paper and correct their mistakes accordingly.

  • Always be interested in your child’s progress in school but do not  get involved to the extent that you will be the one to do the work for him/her.

There is huge difference between being interested and being involved. An interested parent would say that “I am concerned about your studies  but you to be responsible for it.”  An involved parent  would most likely say, “Your education is my responsibility.” Unfortunately, there are  a lot  of  well-intention parents  who accept the responsibility which is supposedly for their children. The result would be  child that would difficulties  taking the proverbial bull by the horns.

  • Whenever your child’s teacher would report a problem, give the teacher the benefit of the doubt not your child.

As a rule, a teacher is more committed into the better welfare of children than any other class professional. Whenever  your child’s teacher would say that your child  has a problem, academically or behaviorally speaking  then it is your child’s best interest in mind. Curb the tendency to become defensive.Instead,listen to your child’s teacher with an open mind and an open heart. You might  learn something that would help you become a better parent.

It is also important to understand  that there are billions of dollars spent on English learning every year. It’s time to get your share  of those dollars. The truth is you have to know the local english learning  labour market to get high paying TESOL salaries and here are some techniques  as you can land a lucrative and high paying job teaching  English or abroad.

    • Get Qualified

 

The supply of English teachers are currently high hence teaching qualifications  have become a rule but not exception. In order for you to stand a chance of landing a job, let alone one  that pays  high, you need to invest  time and money into getting qualified. An entry level TESOL qualification would comprise of Certified TESOL programs that’s usually  lasts for about a month  and would cost  around  $1,500-$2,000. A TESOL Course would teach  how and that’s what an employer  would expect from you. For you to get highly salary you have to aim  to achieve the highest grade there is on the course. TESOL Certification would not officially award you grade but getting above than passing rating would show that you’re  a competent teacher and will be dedicated to this profession.

  • Choosing your country wisely

You should learn to study the market  for English learning carefully. You might want to consider  the pros and cons of the following TESOL countries: -Western Europe offers high salaries but is accompanied  with a higher cost of living.

  • The Job Search

If you are serious about earning money, do not apply for jobs online through sites like 51talk.com or anything. The best job deal is seldomly found online.

  • Choosing a Language School Carefully

Don’t be desperate and go signing up for the biggest language Link,etc since these schools only offer you meager salaries and would have higher turnover of staff. In conclusion, a highly paid English teaching job would depend on your knowledge of the  English labour market and how you can turn that knowledge in your favor. Just a hint of advice though, you should market yourself as an experienced professional  English teacher for the long haul. Strive to be the best English teacher  you can ever  be and you will be rewarded with a salary that would make  English teaching a highly profitable career.

The Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull signed bilateral agreements for the roll out of the NDIS in New South Wales and Victoria a couple of weeks ago, but he also removed a dedicated disabilities portfolio from Cabinet in the recent reshuffle, and Christian Porter who is the new Social Services minister will now oversee the NDIS. A review of the legislation that underpins the NDIS is also underway, including a review of the costs. So where is the scheme at under the new federal leadership—is good corporate governance in operation or not?

Dr Ken Cruickshank is an Associate Professor in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at the University of Sydney. “I think it’s spin for the election,” he said. “These [are] 50,000 to 60,000 extra students… money will be given to schools, but no permanent teachers. “There’s no indication that the money will keep going next year.” NSW Greens MLC John Kaye said even if every dollar of the Gonski funding was spent on ESL teachers, it would not be enough.$14 million, welcome as it is, will only buy another 140 teachers at best,” he said. “That’s only a 16 per cent increase above the existing, roughly speaking, 900 teachers of ESL in NSW public schools.”

In a statement, Family Day Care Australia chief executive Carla Northam told SmartCompany there’s already been significant growth and demand from families for quality childcare and this growth is continuing across the board. “We have also seen a change in Australia’s workforce,” Northam says. “Gone are the days of the nine to five workday and there are an increasing number of parents employed outside of standard hours who are seeking flexible care options. Family day care is well placed to meet this demand with many educators providing care late at night, early in the morning, overnight and on weekends,” Northam says. “Family day care is an important part of Australia’s childcare landscape providing 104,130 families with quality, flexible and affordable early childhood education and care.” Northam cites flexibility, affordability and accessibility as key issues facing the government and the early childhood education and care sector. “It’s important that key stakeholders in the early childhood education and care sector work together to ensure adequate funding is provided to meet the growing demand for quality, flexible and affordable childcare options,” Northam says. In its statement, IBISWorld senior industry analyst Lauren Magner said demographic changes within Australia will fuel demand for a range of products and services, including childcare. “An increase in the population that uses the industry’s services will lead to strong growth in demand for childcare,” Magner said.\r\n\r\n“This will be aided by the continued rise in the female labour participation rate and ongoing government assistance through the Child Care Rebate and Child Care Benefit.”
