The year 2020 means setting new intentions for the new decade, including exploring opportunities for your little one. Tutoring services are nothing new. In fact, they have evolved. At Spark Academy, we focus on holistic development elements in addition to improving grades for maths, English and science. If you agree with any of the below, your child may need tutoring services.
Their marks are dropping
This is the first sign that may indicate that your child could need tutoring services. Unless there are external factors, such as high absenteeism or a family matter, your child’s grades should more or else stay within the same average. If they start to drop despite the same level of commitment to the work, a tutor may save the day. Start by approaching your child’s schoolteacher to speak about your concerns and they will likely recommend avenues for extra help.
A decline in grades is only a short-term challenge as a change in curriculum or subject matter may require an individualised approach for understanding.
Their confidence is low
A quiet child does not mean lack of self-confidence, however if they are withdrawn and struggle with interaction with their peers, then this area needs work. Choosing a tutor that caters to your child’s individualised approach will help them become more independent and confident in their abilities. Benefits of tutoring services include developing problem-solving skills, a supportive structure where students are comfortable with asking questions, and an environment that encourages interactive learning and a high-performance mindset.
Tutoring services are in line with the curriculum
Tutors don’t necessarily teach anything new, and rather focus on teaching the same work differently. Being up to date with the curriculum prepares your child ahead of relevant exam and assignment topics so they are familiar with the work even outside the tutoring centre. Tutoring centres have relationships with schools, guaranteeing the quality of work your child receives.
I cannot help with homework
Parents struggle to find the time to immerse themselves in their child’s homework, let alone understand it. Methods and approaches have changed since the last time you sat in a classroom and we know how frustrating it is to not understand the homework presented before you. Tutoring services offer packages that offer homework help so you don’t have to worry about it. At Spark, we also check for any upcoming projects so that you prepare for them on time.
We know how much your child’s development matters to you and we foster relationships with our students and their parents. We provide weekly reports on their development, self-study material they can use during holiday periods, and frequent tutor check-ins for your convenience.
