Although term is just ending we need to remember that learning takes places not just in a classroom. Whether you are about to go on your travels or are having a staycation your children will still be learning. The benefits of travel and learning outside the classroom is huge and offers your children many new experiences and and opportunities however it is never to early to get prepared for next academic year. Chloe will be heading into y11 and whilst she is on track to achieve the grades she needs she has expressed an interest in having a Maths tutor. I think it is for confidence aswell as for teaching her Maths. As a teacher I certainly see the benefit in private tuition and I have tutored in the past to A Level Sociology students that just want some support. I am considering advertising myself more next year and would certainly look at TutorFair because I love their ethos.
TutorFair acknowledges that education is far from meritocratic and that inequality exists. I know this firsthand from 12 years in the classroom. However TutorFair are doing their bit to give back. They recruit and train volunteers that will go into schools and mentor and support students. This approach plays its part in reducing inequality in thhe system.
Here are top 5 benefits of summer tuition, which promote new learning, engagement and retention.
- Increase Confidence
Use the long summer holiday to practice, reinforce and work on topics that your child has struggled with during term time. Too many students “hate” a subject, because they don’t feel confident or competent.
- Avoid Boredom
Maintaining a regular structure over the holidays helps to keep children from becoming bored. Also, promoting new ways of learning (unconstrained by a rigid syllabus) throughout the summer will help with an easier transition back to school in September.
- Prevent The Summer Slide
Students experience learning loss over the summer months, as they tend not to participate in any learning activities. Practicing skills learned over the past year, and getting a head start on the upcoming curriculum can help jump-start learning, and confidence, come September.
- Smooth the Transition into a New School
Moving schools can be a stressful, difficult and anxious time at any age. Students are learning in a new environment, making new friends and working to a new set of expectations from their teachers. A tutor can teach some of the new topics and learning strategies to help ease students into their new school.
- Works Around You
The tutor can work around your schedule, and also tailor lessons to meet the interests and individual needs of your child.
