Tutoring – four benefits of 1:1 learning

Students enjoy learning when they have the support they need inside and outside the classroom. But it can be difficult for teachers to meet each student’s needs in a classroom setting. This is where tutoring can help.

Tutoring provides young learners with individual attention and support, where a teacher may not. Tutoring can help strengthen skills, challenge young learners, boost confidence, and build essential learning habits. 

1. Tutoring is tailored to each student’s learning style
Every child has their own learning style. A key benefit of tutoring with NumberWorks’nWords is that we tailor the learning for your child. In a tutoring session, tutors can understand a child’s learning needs and adapt their teaching style to best suit the student. You may find that your child is behind or maybe even ahead of their peers, and so tutoring can offer personalised programmes to suit their unique and specific academic needs.

2. One-on-one support
One-on-one time with the tutor gives your child individualised attention that they wouldn’t usually get in a classroom, and it allows them to learn at their own pace. Your child may experience the feeling of not keeping up with their peers or lack the confidence to raise their hand to answer questions, which can negatively impact their learning progress. They may simply need extra time to work and learn at their own pace. This can help your child develop a positive attitude towards their learning and feel more confident.

3. Improved academic performance
Each child faces different challenges in school. If you think that your child has come across certain obstacles within their learning, tutoring may come in handy. In a tutoring environment, tutors can help your child overcome specific learning barriers by individually targeting whichever aspect of learning they are struggling with. For example, your child may be struggling in particular areas of maths, such as addition or subtraction – tutoring can help them overcome those difficulties. 

4. consistent and direct feedback
In comparison to a classroom setting, tutoring can guarantee consistent, direct and personalised feedback on your child’s academic performance. Tutoring enables your child to receive one-on-one attention from their tutor, making it easy to assess their strengths and weaknesses and where there is room for improvement. At NumberWorks’nWords, parent reporting is an integral part of our tutoring programmes. We provide regular and detailed updates about each child’s progress, allowing parents to be involved in their child’s academic success and goal-setting. This is important for young learners and their academic performance, as it fosters growth and boosts confidence.

Tutoring is, without a doubt, beneficial for young learners. If your child requires additional support with their learning, or needs an individualised learning programme tailored to them, get in touch! Our tuition model helps young learners reach their full potential and boosts confidence by providing them with the necessary resources and skills to excel in their learning.
