There are many students who do not want to spend any more time at school than they really have to. Yet these students still need additional support with their studies and a homework club is a good idea.
Everyone likes a little help now and then, and dealing with homework is no exception. With many parents out at work these days, it is not always possible for them to be home early enough to sit down with their child and help with the homework.
Nor indeed may the parents actually feel like doing that after a hard day at the office! Often tempers are short on both sides and homework can become an uncomfortable and unpleasant experience for both parent and child.
In short a battleground!
Not everyone is lucky enough to have a smarter sibling to ask and by the students simply working together on class work, their skill levels can improve.
