Hello Amit.. do you find mistakes in her studies very often? Grown up children don't like to be corrected very frequently. Moreover, l think she is feeling discomfort as her drawbacks are getting traced by her parents. Another thing l would like to inform you... according to educational psychology there are some factors that are responsible for a successful teaching-learning session. 1) correct methodology: don't follow lecture method; for you child conversation method is the best one. Ask her several thought provoking questions related to the text to her... as if you are learning from her. 2) Time management: it does not matter how efficiently you teach your child... after few hours she will lose the interest and attention also. So teach her for not more than 2 hrs at a stretch. 3) Content knowledge: if you can tell her something extra that is not mentioned in the text books.. she will feel some interest... and will feel an inclination towards your teaching. For example, before teaching a chapter on any king... try to tell her a true story about that king. 4) Incentives: lncentives work as positive reinforcement. Give her small gifts if she can score good in a short pen and paper revision test to you.

hi Amit Jain! before u begin to teach her , tell yourself u will not scold her, u will be really patient with her , even if it that means repeating yourself a 100 times till she understands. keep priasing her for her genuine efforts.. avoid saying negative things for instance' it's so easy, u can't even do this' ....so on... the more u will be patient towards her the better will be her performance.
