Here are five signs your child needs a tutor and would enjoy school more as a result.
1. Slipping Grades
If you believe your child can improve on his latest report card, or if you've noticed a decline in test scores, you should take action to improve his grades.
2. Poor Time Management
If your child puts off projects and postpones homework, he or she may not be able to keep up as workloads increase. A tutor will help improve study habits in order to keep pace with upcoming assignments and tests.
3. Test Anxiety
If your child repeatedly expresses anxiety about tests and is defensive when you try to assist, a tutor can help with subject comprehension and test-taking strategies that build confidence.
4. Need For Extra Support
If you don't have time to help with a difficult project, or with ongoing homework assignments, a tutor can be a good idea.
5. Learning Disabilities
Students with learning disabilities such as ADHD or an executive functioning issue often have to work harder to stay on track. Key Academics tutors who are experienced in teaching children with disabilities give these students the attention needed to master subjects and establish good study habits.
Even the best schools and teachers can't provide individualized attention for all students and learning styles. Key Academics one-to-one tutoring reinforces skills and improves subject comprehension. Our tutors review lessons taught in school, motivate students and assist with homework.
