We all learn things in different ways, and of course, that also goes for your children. If you notice their grades and comprehension levels are slipping, it could be a variety of factors that are causing this, including class size, not getting the individual attention they require, style of learning and so much more. That’s where tutoring can become an invaluable tool for allowing your child to progress in a one-on-one environment, with lessons that make sense for them. Here’s just a few ways your child could benefit from tutoring this summer.
During those long summer months, it can take no time at all to lose and forget a lot of what your child may have learned. Without constant practice, it can be easy to forget those important concepts that took all year to grasp. It’s always a good idea to keep your child mentally engaged, and that’s where tutoring can help.
Tutoring enables your child to receive the individual attention that often simply isn’t possible during the regular school year. With class sizes increasing, it’s next to impossible for teachers to give each student the type of attention that focuses on their comprehension and learning. Tutoring puts your child in the spotlight for learning and focuses on their progression.
When a student doesn’t understand certain concepts at school, it can easily lead to avoidance of homework, poor grades, and eventually them falling behind. This lowers their confidence and can foster a negative cycle of failure and avoidance. With a one-on-one tutor, they can take the time to explain certain concepts properly in a way that your child can understand them. They can feel comfortable in learning, and confident when they return to school.
Since each lesson is focused for your child, they can be tailored in ways that allow them to retain and understand the work. For many students, they can differ between being visual and auditory learners. Tutors can recognize and identify what ways your child is grasping the material best, and tailor lessons so they can learn in the most effective way for them.
If your child is struggling with poor grades at school, it’s important to address this as soon as you can. With the abundance of free time during the summer break, it’s provides the best opportunity to get them to stay on top of the material they’ve learned, or simply gain a more thorough understanding of material they’ve been struggling with. Tutoring is a great way to keep them engaged and avoid the “brain drain” during those summer months.
