How every child can benefit from tutoring

The start of a new school term can be overwhelming for many children, especially when it comes to homework loads and subjects getting that little bit trickier. A tutor can really help improve grades and exam results but can also give your child the opportunity to learn the skills they need to become confident, independent learners. Here at Tutor Doctor we want to spread the word about why tutoring can be so beneficial and how every child can be successful.

Improve Grades

Improving grades is one of the most popular reasons for getting a tutor. You may have started to notice that your child is struggling to keep up or maybe they need certain grades in upcoming exams to get into a specific college or University, or perhaps they aren’t reaching their potential and need to be provided with some more challenging material. Whatever your situation, a tutor really can make all the difference when it comes to achieving great grades. The tutors we connect you with always work hard to ensure your kids have the right resources and enough learning time to go through difficult topics to help them reach their targets and beyond.

Building Confidence

Not being at the top of the class can make some kids lose confidence in their academic abilities, which can in turn affect performance, contribution and behavior during lessons. All of the tutors we work with work hard across each one-on-one session to help individuals recognise their strengths, build up confidence levels and encourage them to be enthusiastic about their studies. By setting achievable targets together and taking small steps in the right direction, your child can enjoy a journey of success and progress.

Build Executive Skills

Executive skills such as the ability to organise time, prioritise tasks and memorise data aren’t easy to acquire, especially as they aren’t always taught at school. A private tutor can help your child grasp these vital skills and make them feel as though they are in control of their studies -- and that their schedules are less hectic. Honing these skills means no more excuses for being disorganised or missing important deadlines! We’ve even developed the Academic Game Plan to help students learn these important skills outside of the classroom.

One-on-one Attention

Full classrooms can make it difficult for quieter students to ask questions and get the extra help they might need. Tutoring will give your child undivided attention to work through any problems, ask questions and talk over anything they’re not sure about in a focused environment without distractions.

Adapt to personal learning styles

Every child has a preferred learning style which might not be specifically catered to at school. Whether they prefer working out loud or writing down their thought process, a private tutor will tailor learning programs around your child’s specific needs in order to help them reach their full potential. They can also help improve your child’s ability to work in a range of different learning styles, which can really boost understanding at school.
