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 Hazlet

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.

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 to. 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.

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 Aberdeen, NJ, we offer one-to-one tutoring customized to the needs of your child. Call us at 732-705-3636 to schedule a free diagnostic assessment to determine the best plan for your child.

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.

Easing Transitions

Even with Common Core, there are differences between schools in different states and neighborhoods. Tutors can help your child adjust if you are moving to a new school. There is also considerable anxiety about moving to the next level of middle school or high school. Tutors can also help with these transitions as well.

Avoid Summer Learning Loss

While students are away from school, they will forget a lot of what they learned. Much of the new year is spent trying to regain the level they had achieved by the end of the year before. By hiring a tutor year-round, your child will continue to work the skills gained and prepare her for the year ahead. It is not an excuse to push an A student to becoming an A+ student, but to help with the transition to the new year.

Standardized Testing

Entrance to college and even private middle schools and high schools is becoming intense, and these institutions rely heavily on standardized tests. Tutors can help prepare your child for these tests so she can perform her best.

Homework Help

Many parents are too tired after a full day of work to be adequate homework monitors for their children. Tutors are trained professionals who dedicate themselves to helping students improve their study and work habits, taking a lot of pressure off of parents. Instead of fighting with your child to do her homework, she can do it with a tutor who can spend quality time helping her with problem areas.

Tutoring for Struggling Students

Tutors can teach your child that they are not alone in their struggles. Your child is not struggling because she is dumb but just needs time to figure things out. As she works with her tutor and realizes that she can understand what she thought she could not, she will feel better about other struggling areas as well.
