private tutor teaching a child

With school disruptions being the norm during this challenging year, many parents had to dig deep and be resourceful in their efforts to keep their children stimulated and learning. It’s worth noting that this is a mammoth task that very few of us were prepared for. Many parents found it challenging to provide the necessary guidance while also managing their careers and households. This is to be expected – we don’t have the necessary tools, skills, and environment at our disposal. This is why tutor services should be considered an important resource within our reach.

It’s important to note that professional services provide a number of benefits aiding the development of your child other than merely keeping up with the school curriculum. Some of the main benefits of tutor services include:

They Offer a One-On-One Learning Experience

Most schools feature large classes that range anywhere from 25 to 50 pupils in a class. This often makes it challenging for a teacher to provide personalised attention to individual students. Tutoring provides dedicated attention.

Comprehension Is a Priority

Often, the objective in school is to get all the work covered to ensure the progress of the majority of students. This focus on progress often comes at the cost of ensuring comprehension. Tutor services tend to focus on ensuring an understanding of the work covered, rather than just a push to get through the volume of work that needs to be covered.

Fills Possible Gaps

In a class of 30 or 40 pupils, it can be challenging to ensure that each and every student has mastered every single aspect of every subject. This can lead to gaps in knowledge or understanding. The personalised nature of our academic services is designed to address such gaps.

Learning Is Set at the Child’s Pace

Because of the one-on-one focus and emphasis on comprehension, learning through tutoring happens at a pace that is suited to your child. More time can be spent on challenging topics, while the pace can be picked up where necessary to avoid boredom.

It Improves Confidence

Knowledge development, a safe and secure space, and the ability to improve communication skills and ask questions freely, all contribute to the development of a child’s self-esteem and confidence. It could also improve their attitude towards school and school work.
