Would Your Child Benefit From Home Tuition? Here’re 10 Benefits Of Home Tuition You Should Know

When it comes to home tuition, it seems I’m well-positioned to discuss about such an interesting topic. And the sole reason for this is not far-fetched. My biological mother, Ms. Oduigwe Mariah, was the brain behind EVERYTHING concerning my academic development and success right from childhood.

That well said, because of COVID-19 and its crises, many parents today are considering home tuition as a way of supporting kids from home especially in these times that most schools are still closed.

Many parents are looking for In-home tuition, that is where tutors meet face to face with students others are looking for online tuition where tutors meet with students online using applications like Zoom or Google classroom.

Choosing between in-home tuition and online tuition is perfectly ok since there is no one size fits all approach to education. Home tuition, in general, has its own benefits. However, below are few you might want to consider:

Focus on difficult subjects

A tutor has the opportunity to focus on the specific subjects and areas that your child may be struggling with. At school, a teacher can only give limited individual attention to each student, as there is limited classroom time available and the requirement for the teacher to meet the needs of the whole teaching group.

Little distractions

There are fewer distractions in a home setting, with little noise or distractions from classmates, which can often impact on your child’s concentration and performance.

Personalize their learning experience

A tutor will quickly gauge the current achievement, future potential and learning style of your child and will be able to adapt their teaching to this to bring the greatest benefit.

Can provide academic challenge

A tutor can provide academic challenge for your child, if they do not find this at their school. This can enthuse and invigorate learning and enjoyment for a particular subject, which can infect other areas of their school life.

One on one assistance

A tutor can offer academic support to your child, if they have missed out on some of their learning, whether through illness, absence, a lack of understanding at school … or a lack of effort.

A short, direct and intensive course of lessons can have a profound impact on your child’s performance and confidence.

Boost children’s confidence

A tutor can help develop your child’s confidence in a subject. The more confident a child feels with their schoolwork, the more they are able to develop and progress their skills and knowledge.

Kids prepare well for exams

A tutor can help your child develop the right exam technique, so that they are able to perform to their full potential in an exam situation. Often children to need a lot of practice doing trial exam papers, with a tutor alongside helping them to be precise and concise, to spot the traps that are set, to organise their timings, …

Kids overcome shyness

If your child is shy then often they will not ask questions in the classroom. In a one-on-one teaching, your child will feel more able to ask questions when they are unsure of a concept.

Support for homework

If your child is struggling with homework from school, the tutor can provide support to help him or her with this. If your child is not receiving enough homework from school to consolidate their learning, the tutor can provide this as well.

Maximum focus

Regular lessons with a tutor will help a disorganised child begin to focus on their work, with the responsibility that they will have to be ready for the next lesson.

Once momentum builds, your child will begin to feel less anxious and more enjoyment, as they begin to sense that they are making progress.
