Get better grades with a professional ESL tutor
Our ESL tutors know that good grades in the Okanagan are built upon a good understanding of the English language. That’s because if your children have a good grasp of English, they can understand the directions teachers are giving them in other subjects at school. Without good comprehension, success in school becomes exponentially harder. Learning something new is often a challenge. But trying to learn something when you have difficulty understanding the instructions is even tougher. That’s why Okanagan ESL tutors can be a big help to getting better grades.
When is ESL tutoring necessary for your kids?
It is true that there are ESL programs available in and out of school. So why would your children need to get a private in-home ESL tutor in the Okanagan? The best way to decide is to observe your children. Are your children:
- Frustrated when talking to others in English?
- Uncharacteristically withdrawn or isolated?
- Scared or angry before going to school or social events?
- Taking an excessively long time to read or understand directions?
These could all be clues that your child might need some extra help with learning English.
What makes a good ESL tutor?
The best ESL tutors treat every school subject as an opportunity to learn and master English. For example, let’s say your kids are learning about GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in economics class. A professional ESL tutor may teach them related English vocabulary that would be essential to helping them understand the concept of GDP. So in this case, some examples could be: money, cash, value, and so on. Our ESL tutors have years of teaching experience and are masters at helping students break through language barriers.
How ESL tutoring makes students better at other school subjects
ESL tutoring utilizes special methods to help students understand their lessons.
Here are some examples:
- Structural and linguistic learning: emphasizes grammatical structure.
- Affective and interpersonal drills: helps students understand how to communicate in everyday in-person interactions.
- Written and compositional understanding: revolves around comprehending and crafting the written word.
- Cultural learning: familiarizes students with the cultural peculiarities and colloquialisms of the English language.
All of these drills give your children the tools to improve in every other subject in school. That’s because understanding English is crucial to understanding lessons in class.
