At Scholars, we recognize not every student learns the same way, which is why we use specialized learning resources customized to your child’s style of learning to ensure the Keep Ups, the Get Aheads, and the Catch Ups see results that matter. The Catch Ups are the most widely recognized category of students who rely on additional tutoring support. However, all three types of students can benefit from working with a professional tutor.
Tutoring can provide value for students of all ages across a range of subjects. From science to English, and math, tutoring can help your child develop the knowledge and skills they need to thrive, both inside and outside the classroom. There are a few common misconceptions about tutoring and how to know when your child needs professional support. It can be easy to overlook the benefits of tutoring, especially if your child is already achieving good grades in school.
3 Benefits of Tutoring with Scholars
Here are three main advantages of signing your child up for tutoring support:
1. Improved grades and academic achievement
The most recognized benefit of tutoring is the improvement in academic performance. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to learning; every student has a different set of needs. Specialized tutoring programs can supplement what your child has learned in the classroom. Working with a tutor to build academic skills and identify problem areas will help your child see success inside the classroom. Students at Scholars see impressive grade increases after just 40 hours of tutoring. On average, students see a 1.59 grade level increase in reading and a 2.08 grade level increase in math.
2. Improved attitude towards learning
Working one-on-one with a tutor or as part of a small group presents a great environment to teach your child to feel comfortable asking questions, without the fear of judgement they might feel when asking questions in front of their entire class. If your child is not afraid to speak up when they need help, they are more likely to become a stronger communicator and form better relationships with their teachers and classmates.
When students get along with their tutor, they are far more likely to share their ideas since they know they are in a supportive learning environment. The positive reinforcement they get from their tutor will help build their self-esteem and confidence and help them develop an improved attitude towards learning.
3. A fresh perspective
Taking on the role of a tutor in addition to the role of a parent can be incredibly challenging. Along with attaining subject knowledge and teaching skills, it can be difficult for parents to communicate with their child on the same level as a tutor. It can be confusing for children to have their parents act in a new role. An experienced tutor can provide students with a fresh perspective on their studies they don’t encounter at home or school.
