Have you ever thought about what kind of life you would have if you would have had a tutor? Does your child struggle but you know just how smart she is? Does your happy and funny child suddenly saying he’s dumb or stupid? Your child might just need a tutor.
As a parent, one of the most challenging experiences is noticing that your child is having a tough time with school. However, once you recognize that your child might benefit from additional assistance, your child may begin to enjoy learning! After all, I’ll bet your kid loves learning the latest video game or popular song so they could love other kinds of learning with a little help.
How do you know if your child can benefit from having a tutor? For starters, he might start disliking a school subject that was ok for him in the past, maybe allowing his grades to slip or stay low, and probably show increasing evidence of frustration. You might also see signs of low self-esteem during homework sessions. The tension might be obvious or subtle.
HERE ARE SOME RELATED ARTICLES ABOUT KIDS AND PARENTING:
A kid who’s struggling with math or science might refrain from talking about those particular subjects. When you ask him about a subject you’re concerned with, he might even fake it like he didn’t hear you.
If you hear comments like, “I hate reading! It’s so boring!” ask your child more specific questions about it. Also, get his book and ask him to show you the parts he “hates” about reading.
Maybe you’ve already tackled a school subject together and thought you had it handled. When your daughter’s grades are lower than a C over a months’ time even though you worked on helping her improve, you may want to consider a tutor. It’s sometimes easier to learn from someone who isn’t family.
If one of your kids shows signs of unhappiness or frustration with school, inquire about what’s bugging him. Hopefully, he’ll tell you. But if he doesn’t, keep observing and watch for other signs on this list.
A child who’s struggling with learning will likely begin to lose confidence in himself. He may make statements like, “I’m so dumb” or “I can’t do anything right.” He might not want to spend time with friends he previously stuck to.
Although this sign by itself doesn’t indicate the need for a tutor, misbehavior during homework time indicates a need for paying closer attention.
If you’re in tune with your child, you’ll most likely notice when he might need a tutor. A tutor can help your child learn to study the subject that’s a problem. And tutors are trained to understand the connection between self-esteem and learning. This can also take the pressure off of you.
So, not only will getting a tutor help your child with his grades, but it may also increase his confidence level.
Use the behaviors above as a jumping-off point to help you decide whether your child would benefit from a tutor. Even if academics aren’t your kid’s greatest strengths, learning confidence early on in school can lead to greater success later in life.
