After school tuition is becoming an increasingly popular activity for many parents and guardians to help further their child’s academic ability. Tuition isn’t just great for those children who might be behind with school work or struggling in the classroom. In fact, we’ve seen how after school tuition can benefit kids in varying ages and abilities. Here are just a few benefits of enrolling your child into an after school tuition program.
1. It helps children enjoy learning
Children are naturally curious and enjoy learning new things. Just like adults as well , they enjoy things that they have fun doing and are good at (in most cases anyway!). This means that while they may enjoy learning new things in the classroom, if they encounter any difficulties with a certain topic, that can quickly deteriorate their “fun” and passion for learning. Thinking that they are “bad” at the subject or topic can lead to a hatred of that subject. After school tuition focuses on helping kids at all levels of learning to improve and excel at school while having fun. Tuition assesses and works with your child’s individual strengths and gaps in learning and provides an opportunity to get extra assistance in a fun and supportive environment.
2. Tutoring improves confidence
The more confident your child is with their knowledge, the more confident they become. Years of research support the notion that believing in your ability to do something enhances your ability to do it. Generally speaking, the more confident children in a classroom are the ones more likely to participate, ask and answer questions as they don’t feel embarrassed when they do so. Children who lack confidence will often remain silent – keeping to themselves at the risk of feeling “stupid” if they get something wrong. Classroom confidence comes from learning in a supportive, judgement-free and positive environment- just like at Lynn’s Learning Tuition centres. Tuition in these type of environment encourages children to open up and ask questions (however silly they may think they are!) and ultimately improve their confidence in the process.
3. Tutoring can improve your child’s grades
Every child learns in their own way. Lynn’s learning tailors tuition programs to suit the individual child. This means top first identify and address any gaps in learning, and then strengthen and expand on academic concepts – all at the individual level. We also help prepare students for test and exam conditions (something that many students may get stressed or anxious about). By completing tests under exam conditions leading up to school exams, children can familiarise themselves with the examination process and become comfortable with these pressurised conditions. The more relaxed children are leading into an exam, the better they will perform – usually leading to an improvement in their grades.
4. Your kids will experience less frustration when learning
It’s no surprise that the school curriculum is packed to the brim! Teachers are under a lot of pressure to successfully get through the full term curriculum. Unfortunately, this means that a concept quickly touched on in the classroom could be easily forgotten, or a child may not fully understand a certain concept before the class moves onto the next topic. Both of these cases can be quite frustrating for children, and can dampen their self esteem as they feel a little lost and maybe left behind. All children need a little extra attention at some stage, and this is where after school tuition can help. After school tuition offers a welcoming and positive environment where children are encouraged to ask questions. This helps mitigate any frustrations they might have in their understanding.
5. Tuition forms good learning habits
Tutoring fosters good learning habits in children. Children who attend tutoring are more likely to clarify problems by asking questions of their tutor or school teacher. Tutoring also gets your kids into the routine of doing schoolwork outside of school hours. The skills and routine that tuition provides will help your children with their academic learning from the primary level well into their university studies.
