I think she needs more time. Each and everyone of us have different learning abilities. You need to be a friend of hers and try and make her learn only those things in which she is not force upon her.
Hi Mike,
Thanks for the reply.
I feel that one of her primary needs is to be sure she's doing well enough, otherwise she is discouraged which obviously affects learning. It's been two months now, and I've been supporting and praising her, and it goes like this: today she has her homework ready and does OK in class, but isn't very confident. I praise, it helps, she gets too confident and doesn't do homework for the next class.
She's one of those who really need to do homework or they'll fall behind. This is a group of four and everybody else is doing much better.
