Tuition can help your child develop study and learning skills that will help set them up for success for his or her entire life. Listed below are just a few of the many benefits that parents tell us their children have received from tuition:
1. Individual and unique learning experience
Your child will receive an individualised learning experience they can’t always receive in a classroom setting. Tutors can customise the lessons and activities so that they are bespoke for your child.
2. One-on-one attention
Tutors get to know your child’s personality and individual learning style, and can adapt teaching methods accordingly. They act as your child’s own private teacher.
3. Raises academic performance
Tutors can identify problem areas and work with your child to overcome them. Tutoring will prepare your child for tests and exams, and your child’s grades and understanding of the subject should significantly improve.
4. Boosts confidence and self-esteem
Your child’s confidence and self-esteem will often increase through tutoring, by providing them with the resources and skills he or she needs to excel in the classroom.
5. Helps overcome learning obstacles
Your child’s tutor will specifically target whichever aspect of learning he or she is having troubles with, whether it’s essay writing, algebra or Spanish grammar.
6. Challenges those who need it
Tutoring helps bored or under-stimulated children reach their full potential.
7. Improves attitude towards learning and school
Learning will become a lot more fun for your child. With constant encouragement and regular praise, your child will no longer feel as overwhelmed or frustrated with school.
8. Encourages self-paced and self-directed learning
With tutoring, your child will learn to take the initiative his or her school work. Your child will also learn how to control the learning pace.
9. Improves work and study habits
Through tutoring, your child will learn work and study habits he or she will use for life. They will learn how to create study plans, develop advanced study skills, and learn superior time management skills. These skills will help prepare your child to successfully achieve his or her goals both inside and outside of school.
10. Positive work space
Tutoring provides an environment free of distractions, with fewer students and disruptions around so your child is better able to focus on learning.
11. Promotes independence and personal responsibility
Your child will gain the ability to do school work on his or her own, without your help. Your child will realise his or her own personal growth and will learn to take responsibilities for his or her studies.
12. Encourages the freedom to ask questions
At school, your child may not always feel comfortable asking questions in front of his or her peers. Tuition provides a space your child to be comfortable asking questions, big or small, without feeling self-conscious.
