What Are the Benefits from Tutoring?

Written by 


As a child, it can be daunting to learn and also be confident at every academic subject in school. That's why extra private tuition can be a useful 'helping hand' in various ways. Here are some top reasons why you should consider extra tuition at a private tutorial centre like Maple Education.

Second opinion

If you don't truly understand the current academic capabilities of your child, it can be really useful to get a second opinion on how well they are doing. Many of our parents initially claim that their child has been labelled 'distracted' or 'struggling' in school. However, when in a different learning environment like Maple - they seem to flourish. At Maple Education, we offer a free no obligation assessment where the head teacher will give feedback and advice on how to get things on the right track.

Smaller groups

With class sizes, more often than not reaching around 30 pupils. This means that children have to share the resources during class time usually with one teacher. If your child is shy or lacking the confidence to speak up, this might further reduce the time they have for individual learning. Tutoring one to one in small groups is a great alternative and enables children to feel more confident. It ultimately gives more time spent with a professional on their individual strengths and weaknesses.

Helps homework time

Homework is such a bore we can't deny it. 80% of children who dread doing their homework have some feeling of lack of confidence in different topics areas. When there is a professional teacher out of school helping on tasks and knowledge, the work becomes more approachable and less time consuming.

Increases social skills

When we go into adulthood, we meet many people from many different social settings. At school it can sometimes be limited to your class and immediate friends. Going to a tuition centre like Maple Education helps children bond with new people from different ages and different schools which is only a good thing for confidence and people skills.
