Getting a well-rounded education means studying a wide variety of subject matter. Imagine the limitations of only studying those subjects at which you excel! So for many students there is at least one problematic subject that causes them consistent strife throughout their school years.
Rather than allowing your child to suffer through their education consistently relying on the traditional educational model of classroom tutelage consider hiring them a private tutor (in home, or online). The benefits of long-term tutor education include:
One of the greatest down falls of today's public schools (and even some private ones as well) is the class sizes. In many public schools today your child might be sharing one teacher with as many as 30 students. In this setting it is difficult if not impossible for your child to receive specialized attention that is tailored to their specific problem areas.
With a private tutor your child should receive one-on-one attention that is all about their learning, making it easier for the tutor to zone in on their problem areas and help them find solutions. Sometimes all a child needs is for someone to assess why their having difficulty understanding a problem and helping them work through it in a way that fits with their thinking.
One-time tutoring might temporarily solve a student's problems in a given subject but long-term attention can be truly beneficial in the long run. As your child goes through school many of the subjects will gradually increase in difficulty, so one-time tutoring might help them clear the hurdle at hand while not necessarily preparing them for future changes in the subject matter.
For instance, a child who is performing badly in math might see improved scores with temporary tutoring only to fall behind again the next year when the subject matter becomes more advanced.
Keeping your child in long-term tutoring with a tutor who truly understands their best learning approaches means success in the long run as they'll always have that tutor's aid to help them as the problems become more advanced. After years of tutoring in a given subject they'll eventually master the best problem-solving skills with relation to their poorest subject.
Helping your child succeed at school in the early years of education will not only propel them through their childhood, it will give them the skills and knowledge that they need to eventually continue on to an institution of higher learning.
By providing a tutor to give them one-on-one, specialized attention that is attuned to their specific needs and deficiencies your not only helping them pass to the next grade, you're helping them learn skills that can be used over a lifetime of learning.
