My 2023 Goals

 My 2023 Goals

 Gosh, time flies. The year 2022 is over, and 2023 is here. Another year has come and gone!

 For those of you who have been following My Tutor Helps Me or The Literacy Skills Club for Parents since last year, I really appreciate your support!

 It’s the time of the year again for some much-needed reflection and introspection to set the right tone for the new year!

 I have been busy coming up with my goals for 2023, and I wanted to share the biggest ones with you.

The first goal I have for 2023 is to provide more reading and writing strategies in the parents’ Facebook group, The Literacy Skills Club for Parents. I have this set as a goal because I know how much you want to help your child become better readers and writers so that they become more confident in school. Feel free to join!

The second goal I have for 2023 is to continue to provide unique courses that my tutoring scholars have been asking for. For instance, this month's sessions will be infused with yearly goal setting and Black History. I personally believe that students perform better when they have a chance to analyze themselves in their areas of strengths and improvements and goal setting will help achieve this. As for Black History, I want the scholars to learn more about African American achievements and people that are beyond the people they will learn from the state standards recommended curriculum list.

The third goal I have for 2023 is to interview and accept more scholars and families into the programs offered at My Tutor Helps Me Educational Services. In addition to tutoring, other educational services are: family sessions for ADHD/ Executive Functioning, IEP services, arts & crafts infused with literacy, and adult English as a second language sessions.  

Report cards will be issued over the next several days, so be on the lookout. If your scholar is not performing to the best of their abilities, send an email to their teacher(s) to determine what area(s) in the grading system (classwork, homework, assessments, projects, warm-ups) they need help with. I’ve found that many students opt not to complete or turn in their homework and those zeros quickly add up. 

I remember how hard it was to get my daughter to do her homework. I thought I was going to lose my mind. If you ever felt this way then read this article I wrote, How to Get Your Child Excited About Homework.   

What about you?  What is your #1 goal for 2023? Hit comment and let me know or share with your trusted family or friends.


Here’s to an AWESOME 2023!
