Parents and guardians turn to tutoring for many reasons. Tutoring is the perfect supplement to school learning and gives students the time and support needed to excel. Of course, as we’ve already explained there are lots of benefit to using an online tutoring service like ours, but just what are the benefits tutoring has on children?
Improved grades/academic performance
One of the main aims of tutoring is to improve a child’s overall understanding of a subject and help them attain better test, exam and assessment results. Results that may help your child secure a place at their dream university, college, sixth form or secondary school.
Tailored learning for your child
Unlike in schools where there is a class of 30 children to teach, our online tutoring is delivered one-to-one (although small group tutoring sessions can be arranged) which means that our tutors are able to adapt their teaching to your child’s learning style.
Our tutors are happy to work with kinesthetic, auditory or visual learners and will typically try to establish their learning style prior to your first lesson or during your free trial so that they can plan appropriately for future lessons.
When our children are doing well and getting recognition, we notice a difference in their behaviour and their attitudes. Tutoring helps to motivate your child to reach their academic full potential and can have noticeable differences in their attitude.
Online tutoring provides a private learning environment away from prying eyes and pressures of peers in the classroom. This gives your child the opportunity to speak openly without worrying about what someone else might think leading to a more productive lesson.
Plus as lessons are online they are completed in your own home, where your child is likely to feel more comfortable and relaxed.
Easy to share resources
Our state-of-the-art tutor room makes sharing resources easy. Your child can even take snapshots of textbooks or worksheets using just their webcam. One less reason for them to complain!
