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 the multitude of exams and assignments they are faced with.

Schools usually need to cater to a large number of students which means that the teaching style is very impersonal and one size fits all. Many students struggle to keep up if they don’t understand the content and start falling behind in school. This can also cause them to build up resentment towards school or lose interest in learning entirely.

In this article we will explore how one-on-one tutoring can help your child successfully navigate the many 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 individual learning style. This will not only help to boost their confidence but also teaches them a range of skills that will help them to excel both in high school and beyond. Here are some of the benefits that one-on-one tutoring can offer: 

Personalised learning approach

Tutoring offers a personalised approach that can be adapted to each students’ unique challenges, goals, and learning styles. Tutors will use a range of effective and engaging strategies to help teenagers overcome any challenges they are facing in their learning and can offer immediate feedback and guidance for what they are working on. Identifying any gaps in the students’ knowledge also helps them to build a thorough understanding of the subject and makes them feel confident in their abilities.

Academic confidence

Tutoring provides targeted assistance to help students tackle difficult subjects and concepts. Having a solid understanding of subjects can enhance students’ confidence at school and means that they are much better prepared when exam season comes around. Tutoring can also reignite a student’s enthusiasm for a topic as it helps them to see learning in a more positive light and equips them with the necessary tools to tackle any challenges that come their way.

Reinforcing understanding

Tutoring can help students review topics that are being covered in class as well as enhance their knowledge and understanding of the subject as a whole. Having this added layer of support can be especially beneficial given the fast-paced nature of the high school curriculum. Tutoring can help students not only keep up with the requirements of high school but also helps to reduce anxiety as they will feel fully prepared to tackle tasks and exams to the best of their abilities.

Development of essential skills

Tutoring goes well beyond academic support and can teach students many important skills that they will be able to utilise well beyond high school. Tutors can guide students to develop valuable study skills such as time management, note taking, and exam strategies as well as life skills such as time management, communication, independence, and critical thinking. Having these tools at their disposal sets students up for success both during high school and later at university and in the workforce.

Emotional support

Tutoring can also offer a range of other benefits to students apart from improving their confidence and boosting their academic success. Tutors often act as trusted mentors, offering advice and emotional support to students. Having this support can help to mitigate some of the stress related to academic challenges and can help students have a more positive and rewarding experience at high school.
