School lessons and regular home studying are great opportunities for children to learn. However, these learning environments are only opportunities. To benefit from them, a student needs fight off distractions and pay attention.

How Students Can Battle Distractions

If their teacher has provided feedback that your child appears distracted during class, or you have noticed the behavior at home, below are some tips from The Tutoring Center, Ocoee FL for you to share to help any student stay focused.


Are They Bored?

This is often the last thought on a parent or teacher's mind when they think about and see a distracted student. However, more often than you may believe, distracted students are actually eager to learn.Their challenge is that, despite having an interest in the subject, it is being delivered too slowly or the information is not satisfyingly substantial.

This makes them very susceptible to distractions as the material being taught is not engaging them.

If this is the case with your student, additional learning opportunities are the best choice to remedy distracted behavior. In addition to their teacher providing addition reading materials and homework to complete, consider enrolling your child in formal one-to-one tutoring where targeted programs can push and stretch a gifted child's mind.

If your child is not being challenged at school or they are too distracted in class to concentrate, speak with The Tutoring Center, Ocoee FL at (407) 614-5980 and ask about how the subject focused 'Geniuses in Training' programs in a distraction free learning space can benefit your child.


Is the Distraction Outside the Classroom?


Classrooms are pretty well designed to minimize distractions and promote learning, however, they also have windows. It doesn't matter if it's football practice, the track team, or just the groundskeeper doing their job. The fact is that students love looking out classroom windows.

The simple way to combat this distraction is with seat placement. If you notice, during their study sessions, that your child gazes out their bedroom window, speak with their teacher about moving to a seat closer to the board and away from the window.


Cellphones and Tablets

Mobile electronic devices have so many useful features and benefits. Unfortunately, their ownership comes with one big caveat; they are complete distraction devices. With the ability to quickly and easily chat with their friends, it is no surprise that cell phones are a huge distraction for students.


Below are a few tips to solve this challenge.
  • If you consider yourself tech savvy, change the wifi password in your home during your child's study session. Not only will this severely limit their cellphone functionality, but you can also use wifi as an incentive for a completed study session.
  • As always, education comes first. Sit down together and have an open discussion about the appropriate times and places to be using a cellphone. Explain to them and help them understand the correlation between being distracted by their mobile device and returning home with low grades.
  • Use parental control features available in cell phones to restrict the type of applications which can be installed to limit the devices to educational apps only.
  • Of course, if the problem continues, the most obvious solution would be not to allow cell phones to be taken to school.
  • Try as they may, many parents find that their children always find ways to access electronic devices which studying at home. Either sneaking in a text or watching a quick video clip when nobody is watching.
  • If you consider yourself tech savvy, change the wifi password in your home during your child's study session. Not only will this severely limit their cellphone functionality, but you can also use wifi as an incentive for a completed study session.

Household Sounds

Another common distraction is something most parents wouldn't even think about - cleaning noises. Whether it's the sound of the vacuum cleaner moving up and down and knocking against the walls or perhaps the lawnmower noise in the backyard, students are easily distracted by household sounds.

If possible, find a time where your child can study at home where there are no noises around them. While this may mean moving some of your chores or duties around, the benefits to your child can be great.
