Every student faces challenges at school, whether academic, social, or self-esteem. Hiring a tutor can help your child overcome their obstacles, and not just by improving grades. Here are ten of the many ways a tutor would benefit your child.

Benefits of Tutoring in Plano, TX

Fewer Distractions

In a classroom with thirty other students, your child can get distracted easily. Working one-to-one with a tutor will eliminate outside interference, allowing your child to focus on studying and learning.

Improved Study Habits

Tutoring will build upon the learning your child does in the classroom, helping her to plan better. She will approach her class assignments and projects in a more organized manner.

Advancement

It is not true that tutoring is only for struggling children. Tutoring can also give your child a leg up on the competition, going more in depth into her subjects and learning more advanced areas before her peers.

Self-Improvement

Learning on your child's own will help her build confidence and self-esteem. Your child can go back and improve those skills that were not mastered initially or were lost and no longer taught. Many subjects, especially mathematics, are cumulative, meaning that they build upon knowledge gained in previous years. If your child is struggling in a subject, tutoring will find out why and help her improve.  When she improves, she will feel better about herself.

Self-Managed Learning

The individual attention your child receives in tutoring builds her interest in learning. As her confidence grows, so does her academic performance because she has a better attitude toward school.

Strengthening Foundations

Ideally, you will start your child with a tutor early. In elementary school, students learn the basic fundamentals of math and reading that will serve as the foundation for their advancement. If they fail to grasp these topics early, it will cause serious struggles in the years to come. In the classroom, the teacher will often not have enough time to spend making sure your child is keeping up. A tutor has the luxury of focusing entirely on your child's needs to make sure she builds the foundations she will need to have a successful academic career as she advances. If your child is starting a tutor later, the tutor can identify weaknesses in your child's educational foundations and work to fill the gaps. The earlier you start your child with a tutor, the better.

One-on-One Learning

With thirty or more students in a classroom, it is nearly impossible for even the best teachers to ensure every student's progress. There simply is not the time necessary to explain every topic in sufficient detail for every student. Continuing to ask questions in front of peers can be embarrassing. At The Tutoring Center in Plano, TX, we offer one-to-one tutoring customized to the needs of your child. Call us at 469-277-8177 to schedule a free diagnostic assessment to determine the best plan for your child.

Build Confidence and Self-Esteem

Many children cannot or simply will not articulate their struggles for fear of embarrassment, ridicule, or punishment. A tutor offers a safe-haven, an adult the child can trust and confess problems. As your child works to improve in these areas, her self-esteem and confidence will grow. As she sees her self succeeding, they will grow even more.

Strength-Based Training

Tutoring is not only for students who are struggling. A successful student can advance further with her tutor in subject areas that are strengths. A child working with a tutor only on weak areas can feel like a failure, but building on her strengths at the same time will further boost her confidence.

Common Core Standards

The national Common Core Standards have been implemented nationwide starting in 2014. These are federal guidelines that all states' education systems must meet. Unlike most standardized tests in the past, the Common Core focuses on writing short answers and essays, requiring more mental application. Tutors can help your child transition to the new standards.

Individual Pace

Because the tutor does not have any other students to help, your child can advance at her own pace. If she is struggling in a certain area, the tutor can work on it with her until she gets it. Conversely, if your child is already up to snuff with her current materials, she can go more in depth or move ahead of her classmates.

Improved Social Skills

Although tutoring is one-to-one, it helps build your child's confidence in the classroom. She will communicate better and become more comfortable interacting with an adult authority figure. This boost in self-esteem will improve her relations with her peers and conflict-resolution abilities.
