All children face challenges in school at various times. The main reasons parents contact us is to foster their children's love of learning, self-esteem and academic success whenever possible. Tutors can often help with these goals.
Here are several examples how tutoring can make all the difference.
1. Helps Establish an Early Foundation
Children in the Primary School have a lot of work to do. They are learning mathematical building blocks and acquiring reading comprehension. When kids struggle to master these early skills they can have difficulty grasping more challenging concepts, yet funding for extra support is becoming difficult in schools.
These gaps become greater as children get older, but tutoring can support their ability to acquire comprehension skills and decipher concepts before the situation becomes too stressful.
2. Supports One-on-One Learning
Overcrowded classrooms are another issue which often affects a child's ability to learn. A class of 20 or more students by definition, limit a teacher's ability to give kids one-on-one time to explain concepts fully or to answer every child's question. Children may also become embarrassed to keep asking questions if they are struggling. Tutoring gives your child the opportunity to take as much time as they need to understand the work in front of them.
3. Builds Confidence and Self-Esteem
A good tutor will take time to get to know your child, creating a safe space for them to discuss issues that might be affecting their ability to learn. This can enhance their feelings of self-worth and esteem as well as bolster up their skills at school.
4. Gives Your Child Permission to Struggle
Author and mother to two teenagers, Karen Mishra, Ph.D. has seen first-hand how beneficial tutoring can be. "Working with a tutor, my kids got individualized attention from someone who let them know they actually could understand the material -- they were not dumb and just needed to take the time to figure things out. Having the extra time and attention gave them permission to struggle without shame and then succeed away from the eyes of peers who might make fun of them, or teachers whose expectations might not be realistic."
5. Helps Maintain Acquired Skills During the Summer Holidays
Tutoring can be beneficial to children during holidays, if you have concerns that they will lose some of the ground they gained over the past year.
Holiday tutoring can help transition to the next grade and consolidate skills.
6. Eliminates the Parent-Child Homework Wars
The most stressful part of the child-parent relationship is homework! "By the time it's homework time, most parents are pooped. Tutors can take the pressure off and add to the family's quality of life while teaching kids to be responsible for their own work.
Most children can benefit from having someone focused on them who can support their learning and help them to understand and accept their own learning styles. Every kid is a rock star, even if they have areas where they feel challenged. A good tutor can help them to unlock the door to self-confidence, love of learning and self-acceptance, to boot.
