Tutoring can be used for a variety of educational needs. Your child can get help mastering specific subjects, developing writing skills, or preparing for an exam. Tutoring is helpful in multiple situations, but when does it move from helpful to necessity?
Home tutoring becomes a necessity when you can no longer communicate with your child about their school work. You may feel exasperated with trying to get your student to do their work. Or, you may know your child is struggling, but they won’t talk to you about it. They may feel shame about not being able to keep up with their peers or fear of disappointing you. A tutor can communicate with your student about their grades and school work without any outside pressure or anxiety.
Solutions for Learning
In a one on one tutoring situation, your student can express their specific challenges with school. A tutor can help identify challenges as well. Then they can teach solutions, such as time management, focus and concentration, and note taking, in addition to helping your student comprehend specific subject material.
As a tutor troubleshoots and teaches, they should also be boosting confidence. A tutor should never belittle or make a student feel bad for having a difficult time with any material. A tutor should encourage and point out your student’s strengths. Your student’s confidence will start to improve as they begin to understand key concepts. They will be able to participate in class without anxiety and face exams and papers with lowered stress.
When your student is stressed or falling behind, an outside resource such as a home tutor may be your best method for helping your student catch up and feel confident and happy about school. Tutors are a valuable resource for your student and will help them do their best throughout their education.
