Taking the Hell out of Homework

Homework can often be a source of family strife and argument, particularly for students who struggle academically. All too often homework is seen as having to do more school work at home and an unwelcome intrusion into private time when students would rather be listening to their favourite music; watching the TV or a DVD or chatting online with their friends.

Taking the Hell Out of Homework is a rich source of ideas and strategies to help students complete homework more easily and with less stress. It is also a book for parents and carers who are desperate to help their children with homework but who sure not sure how to do it. Simple strategies and tricks of the trade are presented which are easy to use and effective for 6 year olds to 16+.

The techniques have been used in special "Parent and Child" workshops throughout the UK and in New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore. Parents that have taken part in the workshops, know that these techniques work, now you can learn them, too.

Client Feedback

I was part of the group of Salford teachers who attended your training last Thursday and wanted to thank you. As SENCO I was responsible for organising our involvement and was greeted on Friday by the majority of colleagues not only with a smile - unusual in itself on a Fri morning - but also with thanks for the training. That was a first. The most common words used to describe the training were practical and inspirational.
