There are many benefits to private tutoring...
Beyond raising your student’s grades, one on one tutors can help develop better study skills, boost enthusiasm for school and build academic confidence. Here's our top 10 reasons to find your child a private tutor:
1. Fewer Distractions
Classroom settings are full of friends, noises and constant interruption. In home tutoring or video tutors make it easy to access tutoring and dedicate the time and focus your student needs to complete their work.
Private one on one tutoring is a much more controllable environment, and therefore far less susceptible to interference.
2. Choose Your Tutor
If your student’s learning style and needs aren’t being met during the school day, after school tutors can offer a tailored personal approach. With individualized tutoring one on one, your student is more likely to fully grasp difficult concepts and get the help they need.
3. Focus on Specific Subjects
A private tutor is able to focus on specific areas that your child may be having problems with.
Whether its calculus tutoring online, finally cracking Spanish conjugation or chemistry homework help, an expert tutor that specializes in the subject brings useful experience and reliable help.
A tutor will be able to impart a fresh perspective on the subjects your child is covering. Sometimes hearing a tough concept explain a new way is enough to get un-stuck.
Especially when it comes to AP exam practice or writing college essays, tutoring helps your student develop their approach as well as their subject matter knowledge.
If you are using a specialized tutor—say for algebra homework help—they are likely to have a passion for their subject.
This can be infectious for your child, who may discover their own interest and fascination for the subject they're learning.
Sometimes your child may need a tutor because they missed key points in the syllabus that are building blocks for understanding the more advanced concepts.
A classroom-based teacher is unable to go back over topics on an individual basis. A personal tutor will quickly be able to identify areas that need work and bring your child up to speed.
This is especially important if your child has been ill and missed a few lessons.
7. Shy Children Can Ask Questions
A lot of children may be too shy to ask questions in class and therefor fall behind in their subjects.
When subjects build on past skills (think algebra, chemistry, Spanish), this shyness has a ripple effect on academic success.
Tutoring one on one helps students catch up, where they are more comfortable asking questions. It may even build future confidence to ask for help in class!
A private tutor is able to cover a lot of detail in a short time.
They can work at your child's pace and become very familiar with your child's capacity for learning and the methods that work best with your child when explaining sometimes advanced concepts to them.
Every child is different and a good tutor should be able to identify and adapt to the individual needs and capabilities of the student.
9. Help with Homework
After school tutors in a certain subject can help work through homework that may otherwise feel daunting.
Sometimes at the end of a long day in the office you don't want to come home from work for 2 hours of learning calculus with your student!
A private math tutor can provide the help your child needs and the tools to find the answers themselves, without the added frustration and drama.
10. Handling Attention Span
Your child may only be able to concentrate for 10 minutes before their mind starts wandering onto other things.
This is completely normal and almost completely overlooked in the public schooling system.
A private tutor will easily be able to recognize when your child's attention span is wavering.
The House tutors are available for in-home or tutoring online - both of which give your student the flexibility to stretch, have a snack or drink a glass of water to help reset and get back on track quickly.
