Tutoring can help children to improve in ability and build their confidence. Surprisingly it’s also used by parents of high-achieving students that want to help their children get ahead at school. To help you decide on whether your child needs a tutor, we have teamed up with an independent school in Edgbaston to share 5 signs to look out for.
You’re Having Trouble Understanding the Curriculum
This is perfectly normal and felt by a lot of parents. The curriculum has come some way over the years and even in the last few with more prominence being given to STEM to bridge the gaps currently in the UK.
Your Child’s Bored of By Their Work
If your child is bored by what they’re doing in class, it could indicate that they aren’t being pushed or as stimulated as they should be. In a class full of 20 to 30 students it can be difficult to differentiate teaching. A tutor can push your child to the next level in their learning and cover new content with them that they may not have even had the chance to look at in class. This can help them to reach their full potential and achieve more than if they were to be left to their own devices.
Your Child Is Falling Behind
This is a sign that a child is struggling or simply disinterested by their work. Tutors can help to change that by offering dedicated one-to-one at a pace that suits them to help them understand and retain information.
Your Child Has a Learning Difficulty
Children with learning disabilities are capable of great things when they have the right levels of support to flourish at school. Some schools however are better equipped at doing this than others which is where a tutor can help. Many tutors are trained at teaching SEND students and the additional tutoring that they offer helps them to grasp their classwork.
They Have an Exam Coming Up
Tutors can help in the lead up to an exam. They can make sure that your child’s getting in the revision that they need and work with them to overcome the problem areas.
