What Shall I Do?

I am really having a hard time teaching my eldest daughter for civics, it’s just a simple memorization and a little bit of analyzing the question to get the right answer, she could not still get it.

Her tutor told me this afternoon that she cannot start teaching Mj today as she had some errands she needs to attain for, so what else can I do but to wait her to start on Monday. However Mj quizzes cannot wait until next week, we need to review her notes especially in CIVICS. Math has always been her favorite subject so I don’t have any issues with that, but GOD forbid why is that CIVICS subject is really hard for her. Could anyone tell me the techniques on how to teach her at such? I graduated in Commerce major in Accounting so teaching was really not my field, maybe there are some ways of teaching kids who are not into analyzing or memorization, they said I should not be objective; instead I should assist her to understand the contents. But what are the ways to do that?

I know I should gave her a break as she is adjusting yet to her new school, but I can’t just let her with low scores, not with Math though, Oh Civics! Why are you so hard to understand? Please comprehend. Waahhhhhhhhhh,

    Well, there are kids that don't like memorization and such. You just need to be patient with her. I have no patience to teach that's why I am not a teacher. But we can't show our kids that we are aggravated or the more they won't study. Ask her what part of the subject she cannot get. If she understands the topic, but won't memorize it, she probably is not paying attention to it. No TV for a while?? Just a suggestion..
