Does my Child Need a Tutor?
All parents hope that their children will do well in school and achieve the best results, but sometimes they need a helping hand. If you have noticed a drop in your child’s academic performance or a reluctance to complete homework, then it could be time to consider a private tutor.
Private tutors can offer a number of benefits. They can help your child to learn more about a particular subject or they can offer support with their overall academic development.
When your child feels more confident in their knowledge and skills, it will have a positive impact on their performance at school.
To help you decide on the right time to seek the help of a tutor, Parsons Green Prep School, have outlined some of the possible signs to look out for…
- If you have noticed a substantial drop in your child’s grades or they are falling behind their fellow classmates, then this is usually a good indicator that they require additional learning support.
- Does your child seem unusually emotional when you discuss schoolwork? Is your child reluctant to go to school or do they get easily frustrated when completing homework? These issues should always be discussed with your child to try and identify the cause. Perhaps you could offer to help or suggest a tutor?
- Has your child’s teacher noticed a lack of effort in class? This could be because they are struggling to understand a particular subject. A tutor can provide extra support in these areas, to help maintain their interest and keep them feeling motivated.
- If your child is continuously missing deadlines or their homework is taking a very long time to complete, then tutoring could help them to get back on track. It could also provide them with better time management strategies.
