Does my Child need a Tutor?

All parents want their children to succeed in school, but some youngsters aren’t as academically inclined as others. If that sounds familiar, you may want to consider hiring a private tutor for your child to help them get through their school years so that they can thrive as an individual. An independent college in Kew have shared the following signs to look out for that might indicate your child would benefit from a tutor.

Grades are Slipping

 This is probably one of the most obvious signs that your child needs help from a tutor. If their grades seem to be consistently slipping in a particular subject, or maybe multiple subjects, they will probably benefit from some one-to-one tuition. Private tutors can work on the areas that your child is finding particularly challenging to get them up to speed and feeling more confident.

 Reluctance to Attend School

 Of course, there could be many reasons why your child feels reluctant to attend school. Perhaps they don’t like their teacher or maybe another child is picking on them. However, it could be because they are struggling academically and need some extra support. Try and get to the bottom of why they might be keen to stay at home before you make any rash decisions.

Exams are Looming

 Even if your child is performing reasonably well already, a private tutor can give them that extra push that they might need to truly reach their full potential during exam period. Exams can be stressful for young people because there’s so much pressure on them to succeed, so a private tutor will help them feel more prepared and confident.

Emotions are High

If your child seems overly emotional or frustrated, particularly where school or homework is concerned, they might be feeling overwhelmed with the course content. Try and get to the bottom of why your child is feeling this way, and then consider hiring a private tutor.
