Do you help her with her homework, so that you know WHAT it is she isn't getting? What does the teacher say about it? It's possible she may need a tutor unless you are able to find a way to help her understand the concepts on your own.

Have you spoken to her teacher about it? It may be worth discussing this with her teacher, because they are often trained to identify certain issues, and she may know where your daughter is struggling specifically. It is important to work together with her teacher. I know, for instance, that my daughter (2nd grade) is coping really well with long addition at the moment, but one of her friends is actually failing at that particular task. Not all children are ready for these tasks at this age. It comes down to a bit of abstract and logical thinking, and every child is different with respect to the age at which they develop this. This is why it is important to discuss with the teacher where the issues actually are.

DEFINITELY sit down and do her homework with her so you see where her trouble areas are. I would also speak with her teacher. That is very concerning for a 2nd grader to be failing anything. I agree with everything Dove has said, especially about the tutor.
