Many students are bright, hardworking and eager to learn but it’s not uncommon for some to struggle with homework and getting the grades they want in school. Whether they don’t respond well to a particular teaching style or can’t get their head around a problem, sometimes all they need is someone willing to sit down with them and understand how they work. Tutoring can be a great solution when this problem arises.
Not only can one-to-one tutoring boost a student’s grades, but it can boost their self-confidence too! Suzanne Sachinidis is a parent who’s seen the benefits of learning with School is Easy first-hand after hiring a tutor for her son, Nickolas, who was in his last year of high school.
“My husband and I really want our children to do well in school, so when we found out that Nickolas was getting a B in his calculus course, we wanted to help give him that push to get a better grade. He’s getting close to going to university, so we want him to do the very best he can. Nickolas is bright and often performs well at school, but he couldn’t grasp calculus for some reason. After talking to his teachers, we all decided that we had two options, re-take the whole course or get a tutor and re-do the exam. We decided on the latter and sought out School is Easy to give him a helping hand,” explained Suzanne.
“The team at School is Easy interviewed us to assess what kind of help Nickolas needed. I asked for someone quickly and they wasted no time pairing us up with a tutor who only taught calculus – which is exactly what he needed. The tutor, who was a university-level professor, had a style of teaching that Nickolas hadn’t previously experienced. However, it really benefitted the way he learnt. The tutor explained things in an easily digestible way and even showed Nickolas some handy tips and tricks that he’d never seen before.”
At School is Easy, we only work with highly qualified, strong subject matter experts with great patience and communication skills. Every tutor goes through a thorough screening and background check, a face-to-face interview, and a subject expertise assessment. Our tutors can either work with their students in-home or online. If it works better for the student, the tutor can also meet them at a public place like a coffee shop or library.
“Due to the pandemic, the quickest and most comfortable way for Nickolas to learn was online. It was the first time we’ve hired a tutor, so I was apprehensive about online learning at first, but it worked out fine. Doing all the learning over Zoom was actually really easy for him and despite everything being virtual, Nickolas managed to form a great connection with his tutor. I understand that online learning might not be for everyone because you must be really motivated to do the work after sessions, which is why it’s great that School is Easy give people the option of in-person learning.
“Nickolas definitely saw the results of studying with his tutor. He achieved an excellent grade on his test the second time around and he’s become far more confident because of it. He’s even started tutoring some of his friends, which is lovely to see! My advice for parents thinking about learning with School is Easy is to go for it. When your child needs help, it’s often required straight away, so act now. The further someone falls behind the harder it is to catch up. I didn’t think we’d experience such positive results from School is Easy but having a different teaching style worked wonders for Nickolas – it was worth every penny.”
