Private tutoring has several benefits in addition to better grades at school. Here is a list of the top 10 reasons your child needs a private tutor.
#1. Little or no distractions
In a classroom environment, a child’s performance can easily be affected due to noise and other interruptions from peer groups. If your child suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder this will happen frequently. A far less susceptible to interference and much more controllable environment is a private one-on-one tutoring.
#2. Select your tutor
Choosing a tutor that has the personality and style that’s best for your child is good and if you think it’s not working you can choose another one. In a school environment, if there is a personality clash with your child there’s pretty not much you can do about it because you are stuck with the teacher you are given.
#3. Focus on specific areas
If your child has problems in specific areas, a private tutor can focus his coaching on those areas to help him or her improve. School teachers are constrained by tough targets and time for subject coverage and therefore won’t be able to give the required attention their students needs.
A tutor has the ability to impart a new perspective on the subjects your child is learning. Your child can really get the upper hand with different techniques in teaching and extended knowledge when it comes to exam time.
Specialized tutors are likely to have passion for the subject they teach, for instance, maths tutors. Your child could also be infected and develop the fascination and interest that tutor has for that subject.
It’s possible for your child to sometimes miss key points in the syllabus that are now preventing them from understanding the more advanced topics. A classroom based teacher is not able to revise topics on an individual basis. But a private tutor can; he or she can locate areas that need work and bring your child back on track. This is especially important if your child missed a few lessons due to illness.
#7. Shy children can ask questions
Some children are shy or timid to ask questions in class and may therefore not fully understand what the teacher taught. This can have repercussions for a long time, like a big rock in a fast flowing river. But if they are in a one-on-one tutoring environment, they are much more likely to ask questions.
A lot of concepts can be covered by a private tutor in a short period of time. They know what works best for your child when teaching advanced concepts and can become very familiar with your child’s capacity for learning and can work at your child’s pace. A good tutor must have the ability to identify and adapt to student’s needs and capabilities because every child is different.
#9. Help with homework
A tutor can help your child if he or she is struggling with homework! They may sometimes be asking questions your mom or dad just can’t answer. And you probably do not want to come home and spend 2 hours with your child’s homework after your long day at work. A private tutor can be of help by providing the tools your child needs to answer the questions themselves.
#10. Handling attention span
Your child may only be able to pay attention for 15 minutes before their mind starts to wander onto other things. This is almost completely overlooked in the public schooling system and completely normal. But a private tutor has the ability to easily know when your child’s attention span is declining. You can reset the clock to an extent and get your child on track quickly by taking a minute or two having a biscuit or a glass of water or discussing something else.
