Strategies and Resources
Let them solve problems
This might be hard for you, but its essential that you stop solving problems for them right now. In fact, the best thing you can do for your teen is to start asking them to solve problems that come up in the household too.
They might still need your guidance but please try to step back and let them try first.
Help them learn how to study effectively
Basically, the method helps students actually learn what they are reading about in their textbooks rather that just memorizing it temporarily.
