4 Signs Your Child Needs a Tutor*


*This is a collaborative post* 

It would be wrong to expect our children to be fantastic at every single one of their school subjects; they will likely be better at some than they are at others. Some children love to engage their imaginations and are excellent at writing, but don’t feel particularly confident with numbers. Others thrive at sports and other physical activities but struggle to concentrate in traditional classroom environments. However, if that struggle seems to be quite extreme, or is the case across the board, it might a good idea for you to consider hiring a private tutor. This is nothing to be ashamed of, it’s just a fantastic way to give your child a little extra support so that they feel more confident and positive about those areas that were previously getting them down. I have teamed up with a prep school in Hampton to explore some of the signs that your child might benefit from a tutor.


1.       Your Child’s Grades Are Slipping


If your child seems to be having a hard time maintaining their grades in one or more subject, or they are falling behind their classmates, they might need some extra support in certain areas. Unfortunately, it can be difficult for teachers to focus on one child who is struggling, because they have to work at a pace which suits the majority of their students, so a private tutor would be a good option.


2.       Your Child Lacks Confidence


When children seem to have low self-esteem where school in concerned, it may be because they are struggling and feel that they are doing as well as their peers. A private tutor will be able to help them with their confidence by focussing on the areas that need a little more time. Once your child is able to grasp a certain topic, they will start to have more faith in their abilities in general.


3.       Homework is a Nightly Battle


Homework is important because it helps the teachers understand how much your child has understood during their lessons. It’s not unusual for children to become frustrated or emotional when completing their homework every once in a while, but if this becomes a nightly problem then they may benefit from some extra support.


4.       Your Child Isn’t Interested in School


If your child seems to really dislike school or is demonstrating a complete lack of interest in their learning, it’s likely because they are struggling. Of course, there could be something else at play, such as friendship problems, so be sure to get to the root of the problem before you jump to conclusions.
