Quality education is not just about a child being enrolled in a reputable institution. Quality education is about having the right avenue for holistic learning and sometimes, school in itself is not enough. But in a world where the adults need to spend so much time at work, personally teaching the kids is usually not viable. 

This is the reason why there is a growing patronage for tutors. And if you have a child going to school, then hiring a tutor, especially from a trustworthy tuition agency, is definitely something that you should consider. In order to help you make a decision, here are 7 reason why hiring a tutor is the best choice for your child:

A tutor can craft a personalized learning experience for your child

There’s no one-size fits all approach when it comes to learning. That is why progressive learning institutions limit class sizes so that teachers would be able to work on a personalized teaching strategy. The challenge with this is that even if the class size is small, for as long as there is more than one learner, there would be variations in learning styles. 

With the help of a private tutor, your child will benefit from a tailored-fit teaching strategy that would help him get the most learning. A tutor can focus on areas where your child may be having difficulties before moving on to the next topic. In a classroom setting, a student having challenges in a certain topic will face difficulties with the following lesson. 

A tutor can help instill values to your child

Holistic learning does not mean being able to cover multiple subjects. Holistic learning means going beyond the corners of the classroom, and touching other facets of life including values. While good conduct is hoped to be taught in class, it’s not as easily instilled into a child. With a private tutor, a child can benefit from a more effective way of teaching character which he will definitely carry as he grows.

A tutor can reinvigorate your child’s passion to learn

As mentioned in the first reason, a child who has troubles with a certain lesson would struggle to keep up as the rest of the class moves on to a different topic. This cycle continues and puts a child in a stressful situation. Furthermore, when a child feels that he is not as good as his classmates, he starts losing confidence. This may also lead to a child distancing himself from his peers.

With a tutor helping your child catch up on his studies, and especially addressing topics a child is having challenges with, a child would be able to perform well in class. And with that, a child will be happy and confident, and would find studying to be a rewarding and positive experience. 

A tutor will work on identifying your child’s learning challenges with the aim of addressing them

When a child finds himself behind on a particular lesson, it is rarely voiced out. It’s because a child understands that the whole class won’t wait for him to catch up. Without the help he needs, these unspoken challenges will just translate to poor test scores. And even from there, the issues rarely get addressed. 

A tutor will work on identifying such challenges, and would come up with a teaching strategy that aims to address them. It also helps that the tutor is not the one giving report cards, so a child can be more honest with areas where he is having troubles with. A tutor will also foster an avenue for a child to be honest about his difficulties without feeling the pressure that students would normally have in trying to tell their teacher.

Education is said to be the key to success. But it’s not the institution that matters, it’s what the students learn. With a tutor, your child can receive the true essence of quality education – holistic learning. With a tutor complementing what is taught in school, your child will be able to achieve great heights.
