Today, the world of education is very competitive. In order to gain a place in a selective high school or a university course, students are required to work harder than ever. Many parents decide to send their child to tutoring in order to give them the competitive edge, and improve their grades. But tutors do much more than improve grades. Tutors can also help with motivation, organisation, comprehension and understanding. Tutoring can even be used to provide a challenge for gifted students that don’t feel as if they are being adequately challenged at school.
Here are the top 5 reasons why your child may need a tutor.
1. Does your child have trouble organising their work? Do they often lose important assignments and documents?
Good organisation skills are vital for students throughout school, university and later life. Often, poor marks and poor motivations are caused by a lack of organisation. A tutor can help teach your child valuable ways of keeping their work organised.
2. Does your child often seem unmotivated or unhappy at school?
There are several things that can cause your child to be unmotivated at school. One of them, which is fairly common, is that your child may be unconfident in their abilities. When a student feels that they are unable to complete a task given to them by their teacher, it is common for them to feel anxious and unhappy. Tutoring can help by giving your child a child a chance to develop their skills in a smaller environment, so they are more capable, confident and happy when they go to school.
3. Does your child have great ideas, but struggle to communicate them effectively?
We find that a lot of students who come to use for help with their writing have a lot of fantastic ideas and opinions, they just don’t have the skills to communicate them. Fortunately, these skills can be taught. You’d be amazed at how much your child’s writing can improve once they have learnt a few basics on how to structure and express their ideas effectively.
4. Does your child get confused by mathematics?
Mathematics is very important. Falling behind in maths can have a dramatic impact on your child’s confidence and performance throughout their schooling. A tutor can help to get your child back on track, so that they are more capable of dealing with the work that they will face at school.
5. Does your child feel bored and unchallenged by his or her schoolwork?
Tutoring is also a great option for students who are excelling in school. Often, these students feel bored and unchallenged with their schoolwork, which can lead to a lack of motivation. At Spectrum Tuition, we place students in classes based on their abilities, so that your child will always feel adequately challenges by the work covered.
