Hi Everyone, I wonder if I can tap your knowledgeable brains? I have a student that; to put it bluntly is plain lazy. She's in Yr 10, studying for her GCSE in English Lit/Lang with me only. She often doesn't do any homework, turns up late (at least a half hour late for an hour lesson), she says doesn't know what poetry, texts etc she's doing for he GCSE's and has even said her teacher's hasn't begun doing the English Literature yet with them, just the English Language part of the course! I think she's lying, as I've been onto her school's website it says they will begin to study for English lit/lang in Yr 10, however it doesn't say what and when they will do it. I know what she should be studying GCSE English lit, as it's my job to know what the GCSE English lit/lang subjects contain. She says she only knows she's studying the Love & Relationship poems/Romeo & Juliet, but says they haven't done anything towards learning about the 15 poems/novels/Shakespeare yet??? Also other Year 10 students that school & in different schools I'm tutoring are well on the way with regards to studying the poetry etc! But she keeps saying her specific teacher hasn't started doing English Lit with them yet at all. I've suggested to her mum to ask the school/teacher's and she has given me a list of what she should know/be doing, but she is still saying they are just concentrating on the English Language & not the English lit! As she will be in Year 11 next (the year that is mostly a revision year), I'm a bit worried that she appears to not know anything. I always write an a review about each student/how they're doing etc at this time of the year & her mum has asked me to do one. My question is: How do I approach mum about this (I've spoken to her many times about this & she seems to be a bit oblivious as to how to forge forward with this). Also what do I write in her review? Any relevant advice would be appreciated.
