Tutoring Offers Individualized Attention and Instruction
One of the main ways that tutoring helps in increasing a child’s self-esteem and building their confidence levels is through the process of offering individualized attention and instruction. A dedicated tutor will tailor their teaching approach based on the unique needs of the student, and the skill level in which they are working. In an environment where there is just the student and the tutor, a child is likely to feel more confident in expressing themselves and explaining what they do not understand about a particular subject. Naturally, when this level of understanding is reached, it will increase the child’s self-esteem and confidence.
The Desire to Succeed
Tutoring has been found to be highly effective in producing a desire to succeed; that is, as a child learns more, they will be motivated to keep learning.When students are taught in a comfortable one-on-one environment, they can work on what they don't understand, and develop the aspiration to excel academically.
Many parents decide to hire a tutor when their children are having difficulties with school, which is often reflected in their homework and test grades. As class sizes continue to increase, it's becoming difficult for teachers to ensure that every child is keeping up with the material and receiving the personal attention he or she needs. A tutor can develop a learning strategy for specific problems the student is facing. The tutor can even develop approaches that use the student's strengths and help decrease student's anxiety about the subject.
Basic Homework Help
Some students may not face major difficulties with school, but need ongoing homework help. They may need help writing papers or working through math problems. Some students feel more comfortable working with a tutor, rather than with their parents. Furthermore, many parents struggle to find the time and energy to consistently help their children with homework. A private tutor provides support to both the student and parents, by taking some of that pressure off!
