The benefits of working with a tutor
A tutor can provide the type of personalized instruction your child needs to catch up in certain subjects or stretch their academic muscles to stay ahead of the class. In addition to raising GPA, there are several benefits to working with a tutor.
A judgment-free zone
Tutors provide learners with a comfortable, judgment-free zone that doesn’t include the stress that sometimes comes with working with a parent or teacher. Students can feel comfortable around tutors because the relationship is more relaxed and objective. Some parents are not equipped to help their children with schoolwork because of a lack of time or unfamiliarity with the subject.
Individualized learning brings academic success
Tutoring allows students to receive the one-on-one attention that they would not get in a classroom. Students grasp difficult subjects like math much better when they can verbalize their thinking and problem-solving processes. This can be a game-changer because many students do not speak up in class. With a personal learning plan, learners will not be frustrated, rushed, or bored and can work at their own pace.
Overcoming learning obstacles
Tutors help identify and manage learning challenges for students. For many kids, this brings an improved attitude toward school. Tutors often pick up on learning differences that may get overlooked in a classroom setting. If your child struggled with remote learning last year, use the free time of summer to get him or her extra personalized instruction. Tutoring will give parents a clear picture of where their child stands in a subject and an action plan to achieve results.
Keep students on track during breaks from school
A summer tutor is a great way to strengthen subject comprehension, boost confidence, and build important skills. While it is necessary to make time for fun and relaxation during the summer, it is also a great way for students to use the time to review, relearn, and improve skills and concepts that they struggled with during the year.
Tutoring utilizes active learning strategies
Active learning strategies help students to comprehend the subject matter and retain it. The premise behind the active learning philosophy is to deeply engage students in the learning process. They are asked to think about what they are doing and find answers through critical learning. Active learning bridges the gap between the worksheet and the mastery of a subject.
Improved prep and study skills
Not only do tutors build on academic knowledge but they also improve study and preparation skills. These skills create readiness and build confidence. Great study skills give students a solid foundation on which to build academic and lifetime success.
Tutoring encourages independence and responsibility and ensures that students stay on track with their coursework and follow through with tasks. Learners see that with dedication and persistence, academic difficulties can be overcome. Tutoring programs require students to complete schoolwork, homework, and other school-related tasks. Accountability boosts self-esteem and confidence. What’s more, when a student feels capable in academic settings, their overall confidence increases.
Summer is the best time for families to have fun and relax. It’s also a great time for young learners to utilize tutoring to stay on top of the material and have their comprehension soar. Tutoring can be a truly positive, confidence-building experience that prepares students for any challenges that a new school year may bring!
