I believe that if you feel your child needs support, you need to seriously consider a tutor. Why? Teachers are very busy people, and I know we all want to believe that they can drop everything for our children. But, that is not always the case. Sometimes we need to work with another qualified individual to support our child’s learning goals.
Teachers are very busy people. They spend hours planning and creating wonderful lessons for our children. How do I know this? Because I am one! I know the time and energy it takes to create and implement those lessons.
I know that teachers have a full plate. They work with large groups, small groups, and one-on-one to support their students. But the fact remains, there are only so many minutes in a day during school hours. Those hours are spent learning all kinds of things. Sometimes your child just needs support in one particular area.
Maybe your child is a very fluent reader. They can read anything you put in front of them. However, they don’t understand what they read. They need support with their comprehension skills. Maybe they need a tutor.
Perhaps your child can figure out the steps to complex story problems, but they can never get the right answer. They might need more support on computation skills.
Perhaps your child has a brilliant mind and can write wonderfully crafted stories. However, your child cannot spell words, thus the reader cannot understand the brilliant masterpiece. You might need a tutor.
Tutors can target areas for growth and development. You can work together with the tutor to create a plan that will work for your child.
Your child will obtain one-on-one support and will have growth just due to the fact that they are getting support for their needs.
But wait, perhaps your child does well in school, but needs a challenge. Tutors can do that for your child as well.
