|When to Get a Tutor|
|Nowadays more and more parents decide to hire a private tutor for their children. Standardized testing established in schools speeds up this process. Some parents get a tutor for their child after first low grade that child brings home. Other parents delay the hiring of a tutor thinking that children are able to manage this situation and improve their grades by themselves. In fact, a child needs a tutor only when school lessons are not enough to understand the subject and parents also aren’t able to explain it.|
Modern parents have too much work and they are not really eager to help their children with the homework after 8 p.m. And very often it’s the time when children make the last preparation to sleep. The best variant for this type of parents is to hire a private tutor.
But what age of a child will be the best for training with a tutor? It depends on performance of a child. But, as usual, small children don’t have problems in school till the age of 7. A lot of children experience troubles with understanding some subjects at this age.
Many children have attention deficit disorder. Sometimes this diagnose is true, but a lot of such children are just not motivated enough. When doctors prescribe drugs for them, they are guided by the performance in school. Sometimes what you need to do for improving your child’s grades is to discipline and motivate him or her.
First you should ask your child about subjects, with which your child has problems in school. Then meet the teacher and inquire about your child performance in these subjects. Very often a child just doesn’t do the homework. In this case you should help the kid to perform the tasks for a couple of weeks. If you don’t see the improvement in kid’s performance in school after this period of time – hire a private tutor or enroll the child in after school tutoring lessons.
It doesn’t matter in what age your child trains with private tutor. The main question is why your child is doing poorly in school: is it because of certain emotional disorders or personal problems. Remember: a tutor will simply teach your child and not solve psychological issues. And sometimes the reason of the child’s underachievement is rather simple.
