As a parent, we are always looking out for our children and how to provide for them in the best way possible. As students, we are always looking for ways to improve ourselves to achieve our academic and social goals.
As a Math tutor, I always find students and parents approaching me with the question “Should I enrol in math tutoring?” or “Will math tutoring be beneficial to my child?” and the simple answer is YES!
Tutoring is more than just extra help and support outside of school to help understand and comprehend concepts taught in class.
These are the benefits of a Math Tutor:
- Confidence Boost
Providing your child with a Math tutor will significantly benefit your child. Students will develop confidence as the math tutor will focus on what they are learning at school to solidify every concept. Students who are usually shy to answer questions in class will feel confident enough to volunteer their answers as they receive extra help and support from a maths tutor who helps them learn at a level that best suits their abilities.
- Gain an advantage in learning new concepts
While we do cover the concepts taught at school, we often get ahead of the school and students are provided with an advantage as they have started to learn content that their peers have not. This acts as a confidence booster for the student, and they can rectify the concepts they struggle with faster.
- Learning different methods
Often, students struggle to understand and interpret concepts that their math teacher has taught them as they deem the method challenging. A math tutor will help your child understand a concept and answer questions most quickly and efficiently for them. The main goal is to ensure that students can understand and apply the content appropriately and accurately.
- One-on-One attention from the tutor
In a large class setting with approximately 30 students, it is difficult for a teacher to walk around and help every student individually. A math tutor can provide each student with the one-on-one attention they deserve, whether through small school-based classes or in a one-on-one lesson.
The class will focus on school content, help with assessments, and prepare for exams to guarantee that they reach their full potential.
- Better Marks
A math tutor will not only be there to support each student during their learning experience; they will be there to provide extra help and resources that will ensure they ace each topic they taught. As a result, they will begin to improve their test scores at school.
- Improved Attitude
A math tutor can be gratifying for students as they will be placed in an engaging and encouraging environment that will motivate them to perform their best. The math tutor will make students feel comfortable enough to ask questions to strengthen the concepts and skills they need to perform to the best of their ability.
There is an excellent focus on improvements and triumphs no matter how small they may be. This essentially promotes confidence in each student, significantly contributing to a better attitude and better marks overall.
- Developing new skills
Math tutors have a rather prominent role in helping students develop the skills they need to ace the mathematics course and other subjects, as well as other aspects of their lives. They teach students how to stay motivated, how to structure their work, how to study, how to manage their time etc.
We highly recommend in a math tutor who will be there to support you or your child in their educational endeavours to unleash their full potential and perform better at school.
