What’s the point of tutoring?

Education can seem like a vast tumultuous ocean of daunting challenges that many students have no idea how to tackle. While school can offer a range of opportunities to students, it can be difficult for students to navigate their way through large amounts of exams.

Schools often cater to a large number of students which means that the teaching style is impersonal and one size fits all. Consequently, students struggle to keep up if they don’t understand the content and start falling behind in school. Therefore, causing them to build up resentment towards school or lose interest in learning entirely.

In this article we explore how one-on-one tutoring can help your child successfully navigate the challenges that high school poses.

How one-on-one tutoring can help your child excel at high school and beyond.

One-on-one tutoring is designed to offer a personalised learning approach that is uniquely tailored to each student’s learning style. Here are some of the benefits that one-on-one tutoring can offer: 

Personalised learning approach

Our tutors adapt to each students’ unique challenges and learning styles. Tutors will use a range of effective strategies to help teenagers overcome challenges they are facing in their learning. Identifying gaps in the students’ knowledge helps them build a thorough understanding of the subject.

Academic confidence

Tutoring provides targeted assistance to help students tackle difficult concepts. A solid understanding of subjects can enhance students’ confidence at school. As a result, they are much better prepared when exam season comes around. Furthermore, tutoring can reignite a student’s enthusiasm for a topic as it helps them to see learning in a more positive light.

Reinforcing understanding

During the tutoring sessions, students will review topics and enhance their understanding of the subject as a whole. This added layer of support can be especially beneficial given the fast-paced nature of the high school curriculum.

Development of essential skills

Tutoring goes well beyond academic support and can teach students many important skills. Tutors can guide students to develop study skills such as time management, note taking, critical thinking and exam strategies. Having these tools sets students up for success both during high school and later at university and in the workforce.

Emotional support

Tutors often act as trusted mentors, offering advice and emotional support to students. Having this support can help mitigate some of the stress related to academic challenges. Thus, students have a more positive and rewarding experience at high school.
