Parents are recommended to sit in on 5-10 minutes of their student's lesson so they can have a chance to review with the student and teacher about the progress that is being made in lessons. This is also an excellent opportunity for the student to showcase what they have been working on and for the parents to ask questions to the teacher, if they have any.
