At School is Easy, we know hiring a math tutor can be a big decision for any parent. So here are some tips that could help you decide if professional tutoring is right for your child. Students who are prone to distractions and struggle in a classroom environment often benefit greatly from one-on-one math tutoring. These learners sometimes get intimidated by asking questions about math problems during class time. A fear of embarrassment can cripple learning when students are in a group setting.
Other students have difficulty connecting with the way a teacher explains math at school. For example, some students do best when the teacher shows them how to solve math problems on the board. Others do best when they are given a sheet of written instructions. And some need to learn by doing math problems over and over again.
Often, it is isn’t laziness on a child’s part. But the reality is that classrooms make it very difficult for one teacher to cater to the different learning styles of each child. We all learn in different ways. Unfortunately, school teachers may not have the time or resources to get to know each child very well. They have 20 to 30 other kids to look after. Now, we’re not saying they’re not doing a good job, because we know teachers care greatly about their work. But they may not have the time to teach every student in the way that best suits each child.
For example, if a teacher is demonstrating fractions, one student may be struggling because he hasn’t grasped how fractions relate to pieces of a pie. Another student may be struggling because she is a visual learner and the teacher is giving verbal instructions. Yet another student may have a learning disability (that’s why we can also send teachers experienced with special education tutoring to your home for those cases).
Our professional, private tutors in Vancouver, Vancouver Island, the Fraser Valley, the Okanagan, Comox Valley and Mississauga can diagnose these problems and fix them. They will devote all their energy to helping your child. It’s an advantage you can’t find with a teacher who’s serving a large class.
So observe your child carefully. If it seems like his or her problems aren’t being addressed in a classroom setting, perhaps a local tutor from School is Easy might be the right way to go!
