There are many tutoring benefits for your child. These include improved study habits and confidence in lessons, as well as better social and behavioural skills. Below are some of the ways that tutoring can make a difference at home and at school.
Individual and unique learning experience
Individual and group tutoring benefits your child by providing an environment for children and students to receive one on one attention. This type of attention and teaching is not always available in a busy classroom during school days. The one on one time will allow the tutor to get to know a student’s preferred style of learning, allowing them to adapt their teaching style accordingly.
By being in a smaller group or class and by having access to one on one time with the tutor, the student will be able to have the freedom to ask more questions and attempt to overcome problems and questions that may have previously been an obstacle, unmanageable or too difficult to tackle alone. The guidance of the tutor during such circumstances serves as training wheels for the student to take on more difficult questions in their own time.
Improves academic performance
Tutoring with an experienced educator can improve work and study habits in a child. The tutor can help to provide insights on methods of exam and testing preparation, as well as study skills and tips. Whether the advice is general or specific, tutoring benefits children in picking up smarter ways to study. These skills eventually help your child to develop independence and responsibility as they learn to adapt to study skills and apply them to homework and school work without heavy guidance from a tutor. This is crucial in building confidence and encouraging personal growth in a child.
Tuition and tutoring also provide a challenge for the child as the tutor can specifically target different aspects of learning that the student may have difficulties with. This will allow the child to build confidence in areas that were previously difficult.
Improves attitude towards learning and school
Tutoring sessions allow a student to take initiative, as learning can be self-paced and self-directed. This means that the student will learn to identify his or her own strengths in different areas of learning. The tutoring environment also encourages freedom to ask questions in a positive workspace, free of distractions. By doing this, students will build self-esteem and confidence as they gain practice and become more knowledgeable in areas that seemed too difficult to approach. The child will be more confident in lessons at school and will be able to participate further in conversation and questions.
Financial Tutoring Benefits
Tutoring for your child can be considered an investment as it leads to open doors in the future for your child. While tutoring may be a small out of pocket expense, it can lead to the possibility of scholarships at private schools or entry into selective schools.
