Continue reading to explore the top five benefits of hiring a SOL Learning Center tutor. We offer personalized online tutoring, with 1:1 and group sessions available. We take pride in curating learning experiences that address the interests and needs of our community.
Co-created Learning Experiences
The average classroom has 20+ students – all with different learning needs and capabilities, and personalized attention to weaknesses is often overlooked. On the other hand, homeschooling parents may not have the expertise or resources to differentiate their approach for their children. A private tutor provides the opportunity to learn at one’s own pace and in the comfort of one’s home. With a private tutor, your child co-creates their learning experience and feels much more involved in the process.
Leveraging Individual Learning Style
Each child has a unique learning style. Some children are visual learners while others are auditory learners or hands-on learners. Nowadays, in larger classrooms, teachers typically create lessons that cover all learning types. However, a one size fits all approach does not work for all students. Finding a private tutor who has experience working with diverse learning types makes learning more effective.
Strengthen Foundational Skills
Most children who struggle with their schoolwork are students who did not fully grasp the basics in earlier years. Hiring a tutor helps your child master the basics of difficult subjects. Ultimately your child will have an easier time following along in class. In the long run, your child will be able to understand more advanced material because their basics are strong.
Instill Discipline and Routine
Hiring a private tutor is a great way to instill a sense of discipline and routine in your child. For long-term success, sustained effort and revision are critical while studying a subject or learning an art. Irregular learning can lead to a deficient mindset or boredom which often leads to learning loss. Consider hiring a tutor to supplement your child’s education during extended breaks from school.
When children start to struggle with a subject at school, they begin to think that they are not intelligent or that learning is not for them. Often children’s confidence in their ability to learn, work hard, and achieve their academic (and other) goals starts to lower when they are struggling to keep up with their peers. Before your child becomes too disheartened at the idea of school and learning, reinforce positive aspects of learning by hiring a private tutor.
Seeing themselves improve and achieve their academic goals will help them love learning and increase their self-confidence. If you hire a private tutor, your child can be honest about where they are struggling and would like more attention. A private tutor can help your child feel comfortable with challenges and boost their self-esteem.
