Does she know why she did poorly? Does she know how to fix it? Does she have a plan to work on it? If she can answer those questions to your satisfaction, then maybe you can work out a timetable with her and some goals to hold her accountable. Is there someone who can give her ad hoc help rather than regular tuition? Just a couple of sessions on a particular topic may do the trick.

If your kid knows exactly which topics or which concepts/areas she is lacking,
she can work on them by seeking help from her subj teachers or by asking close friends to help her out....in addition to self-learn fr the net....
This is quite a norm practice in secondary schs when kids do not have tuition, or unable to have tuition,
becos of tight time schedule or financially.....
