There are countless benefits to home tutoring and online tutoring , the most obvious being improvements to your child’s academic score. The purpose of tutoring is to help students become independent learners, providing them with the skills needed to succeed in school. However, tutoring is not just for improving school work. There are endless benefits to working with a tutor, such as improved study habits, organisation techniques, increased confidence and attitude, or improved social and behavioural skills and a love for learning.
In a busy classroom of dozens of students, teachers cannot focus individual attention on each student. Resultantly, some will fall through the cracks. In a recent study, our Sydney tutors at TutorTime have found that an overwhelming amount of students have ‘holes’ in their knowledge. In other words, they are missing foundational and key blocks of learning. By engaging with a private tutor, the tutor can quickly identify and patch any educational holes, immediately helping students catch up to their peers.
On the other hand, tutoring is incredibly important for gifted students. Teachers and schools are discouraged from elevating students beyond their grade boundaries, and consequently academically gifted children can find themselves bored and/or unchallenged by schoolwork. Tutors can assess their learning abilities and expose them to increasingly stimulating academic tasks to meet their full learning potential.
TutorTime thinks of tutors as more than just academic assistants, but as mentors. A great tutor helps a child with their academic confidence, offers words of encouragement and lets them know that it’s okay to make mistakes. Without the distractions of the classroom environment, a great tutor can be the difference between a struggling and an excelling child.
