"A Friend In Need Is A Home Tutor Indeed: When Teachers Give Up On You, The Tutor Helps!"
06 Nov 2017 ,Teacher,Team Tutago
When teachers give up on you, how can a tutor help? This is exactly what most of us have faced back in the day, and time and again it has been proved that home tutors can be the friend we need to run to for help. Now here is exactly why tutors can be more than just someone that teaches us to tackle studies; they are the friends, philosophers and guides that are there for us. Read on to understand why tutors would not give up on you!
As a tutor, you are helping a student catch up
It is a fact that not all students would understand a particular subject in on go, and this is when a tutor can help bolster the confidence of the individual. Irrespective of how well the class teacher may have taught the student, he or she might still need that extra help. One on one sessions with a tutor can be a boon for the student. They get to catch up and stay on par with the rest at school and in class.
Students need that extra time
Sometimes and because of strict timings in school, teachers are not in a position to explain concepts on a one on one basis to more able students. This does not allow the young minds to think out of the box and to stretch their ideas, tackle more complicated scenarios, and to debate or to discuss as well. We think that the teachers have given up on their skills to teach the young mind, but it is actually the system that does not allow them to go further. With a tutor at home, the time constraints are out of the window. It helps the pupils to think more, to push their limits and understanding, and to prepare them in advance for the next lessons and careers at large too.
The building of strong interpersonal relationships
Other than what parents and teachers can do or offer the kids, tutors are in the unique position to support and build strong interpersonal relationships with the learner. This is what makes the student feel wanted and connected, and helps with self-esteem too. Respect and trust are created, listening skills are applied by the tutor and this helps the student build a strong relationship with his mentor. Tutors thus get to personalize their teachings to that of the student's needs, strengths and areas for improvement too.
Do not be in a state of dismay should you find that your child’s teacher at school says they have given up on your young one. Professional home tutors are around to help with their expertise and one on one mentoring. There is always light at the end of the tunnel!
