Parents, we all know that 2020 has proven to be a difficult and challenging time. This is particularly true for families with school-aged children given the drastic changes in the academic world with the transition from the classroom to home-based/virtual/distance/remote learning. Parents were abruptly becoming homeschool teachers while balancing work and life. Further, no one knows exactly what the fall school semester will bring or if the school will be ‘normal’ again anytime soon.

Moving forward, I have heard directly from many parents who are concerned that their children may not be learning and progressing at the expected rate. They ask, “will my child be ready for the next school year and be prepared for the next grade level?

If your child has been struggling at school, or with home learning, or both!! — you may want to look into individualized, custom tutoring to help them with their academics.

Tutoring has been proven to give children the individualized attention that they are unable to receive in a large classroom to help them to maximize their academic success. While a classroom setting can make a student feel left out or lost, tutoring may offer a number of benefits. Here are a few ways that customized tutoring can benefit your child.

Provide Ample Information Processing Time

In a classroom setting, each student may have a different style or speed of learning. They do not all process the information the same way or at the same rate. Classroom setting can be a problem for the children that need more time to process the information they are given.

In order to advance in any subject, a student needs to be able to build a strong foundation of the subject. If they are unable to do so, they may fall behind.

There are studies that indicate information processing time is essential to learning. Students need to be given enough time to process and assimilate subject information. When they are given that time, they are able to yield more significant results in class. While a large classroom setting may not be able to offer that, a tutor can.

Boost Self-Confidence

While self-confidence is not an ”’academic skill,” students’ self-esteem goes a long way when helping to obtain the long term positive benefits and results that you are looking for.

A student that is self-confident is more likely to raise their hand in class to ask or answer questions. They are less afraid of making a mistake in class and are more willing to participate. Self-confidence is essential for a child to be able to take full advantage of learning in class.

With customized tutoring, children can boost their confidence levels. They get the additional help they need to understand subjects they are having trouble with. In turn, a boost in self-confidence can also result in an increase in motivation to learn.

 

Get One-on-one Attention

In a large classroom setting, teachers are not always able to give each student the amount of attention they need. However, having a tutor means your child can get customized lessons and activities in a one-on-one setting.

Tutoring is a much more personal way of instruction which can greatly enhance a student’s ability to learn. Tutors are able to really get to know and understand a child’s individual learning style. They are also able to give them the attention they need and adapt their teaching methods to meet the child’s needs.

Conclusion

A child can get the right individualized attention, information processing time, and a boost in confidence from customized tutoring. These benefits can also result in a number of other positive results such as improving study habits and academic performance.

Attn new HS Juniors.  It’s that time of year… Test Prep Season.

Good news …  there is help 🙂

A Free Practice SAT (by the College Board) is available on the College Board site. mAke the grAde recommends that all students planning to take an upcoming SAT should take advantage of this ‘offer’.

PRACTICE COLLEGE BOARD SAT EXAM

There are a number of ways to prep for the SAT (and ACT) exams.  One is to simply practice that test as much as possible.  Practice makes perfect.

Practice also helps to demonstrate both areas of need (which you may choose to ameliorate with a tutor) and areas of strength (which is may be just fine with).  Areas of need may include specifics in the 3 main sections of the SAT: Reading, Math and Writing, but may also expose needs in your timing and pacing for the questions and for the sections (remember the SAT (and ACT) is a timed exam!)

To access this practice SAT click this link:

PRACTICE COLLEGE BOARD SAT EXAM

The SAT is administrated 8 times during the academic year: October, November, December, January, March, May and June.  This year is a watershed year however as the “old” SAT will be administered up to and including January 2016 and then a “new” SAT will be administered starting in March 2016.  mAke the grAde recommends taking the “old” SAT while is is still in play since it is a known commodity and there are still several unknowns concerning the ‘new’ SAT.

What do you think? What is your test calendar plan?
