Most children face challenges with learning at various times of their school journey. Here are 5 reasons how a private tutor can make the difference:
Children just starting secondary school have a lot of work to do. They are learning mathematical building blocks and acquiring reading comprehension. When children struggle to master these early skills they can have difficulty grasping more challenging concepts, yet the school system will not typically offer added support unless they are behind. These gaps become greater as children get older, tutoring will support their ability to acquire comprehension skills and decipher concepts before the situation becomes too stressful.
Overcrowded classrooms are another issue, often affecting a learning. Large class sizes limit a teacher’s ability to give children one-on-one time. Children may also become embarrassed to keep asking questions if they are struggling. Tutoring gives your child the opportunity to take as much time as they need to understand the work in front of them.
Children are so eager to please their parents that sometimes, they don’t communicate their struggles fully. A good tutor will take time to get to know your child and discuss issues that might be affecting their learning.
There are, however, individual differences between schools that might make it harder for your child to learn if you have moved to a new area. Throw in a change of classmates and unfamiliar environment and your child may be craving the support of a Cardiff & Vale tutor who is focused solely on their needs.
The most stressful part of the secondary school child-parent relationship is homework! By the time it’s homework time, most parents are exhausted. Tutors can take the pressure off and add to the family’s quality of life while teaching children to be responsible for their own work.
