Why do kids need tutoring?
As a parent, we may wonder this very question. ihelpmoms.com provider, BluPrint Learning shares some answers.
Whether in a private or public school setting, educators need to employ multiple strategies in an attempt to connect with the many styles of learning in their audience. It is a very trying task and inevitably, not all children achieve their goals. To assist parents, tutors can be an effective tool used to increase grades and heighten learning.
Here are three major reasons a child needs tutoring and keep in mind, tutoring is not only for the student who is failing.
- If a child does not learn to read by the age of eight, they will never be a competent reader. Don’t take my word for it. According the world’s largest reading organization, the International Reading Association, “…the early childhood years-from birth through age 8-are the most important period for literacy development”. Trained tutors assist in this endeavor armed with powerful tools so that your child can learn to read.
- Kids need help in the sciences and mathematics. Dr. Bertram, author of One Nation Under Taught: Solving America’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Crisis states “in 2010 only 26 percent of high school seniors in the U.S. scored at or above proficient level in math. Another 36 percent were failing. Only 3 percent scored at an advanced level in math, and only 1 percent scored at an advanced level in science”. We need excellent tutors to provide the additional support as they learn the basics of mathematics and science.
- Learning through one on one instruction occurs at a more rapid pace and is joined by the development of a mentoring relationship. One of the overlooked aspects of individual instruction is the development of a mentoring relationship. Tutors have the time to talk things through and to make sure all of the students questions are answered.
With a combination of individualized tutoring, personal mentoring, skill development, and self-empowerment, Bluprint Learning equips students for success in school and in life. We are dedicated to giving students the tools necessary to become life-long learners, highly-skilled individuals, and better leaders. We believe that education is the most important investment in a child’s future, so our passion is making world-class tutoring and learning opportunities available at an affordable price.
“I have a son in fifth grade who struggled in Math. His scores were low despite being able to do most of his homework. I hired a tutor, David M, through Bluprint Learning who came to my house to tutor. David, on his first visit, sat down with my son and had him do five problems, all dealing with division of mixed fractions. As my son was working the problems, David was watching and taking notes. When my son had completed the problems, David shared with us what my son was doing incorrectly and gave him strategies to use. David worked with my son for the rest of fifth grade and his math grade gradually increased to an “A”. What impressed me about David was his knowledge of the subject, his professionalism and his ability to teach my son math strategies. I would definitely use Bluprint Learning again and recommend the company for any parent looking for a tutoring company.”
