Often, it may require the support of a professional tutor or Educational Therapist.
Here we discuss the factors that signal the need of a tutor.
1. YOUR CHILD'S GRADE HAVE SLIPPED AT LEAST ONE LETTER GRADE
If you notice a decrease in the test score of your kid, the first line of defense is always to talk to his/her teacher. A teacher's insights into the child's performance can really help shed light. Perhaps, it is a learning difference that has gone undiagnosed, an issue with the teaching style of the school or individual teacher, or sometimes it is simply the subject matter that has eluded your child.
Make sure the teacher tells you about the concepts in which the child is lacking. This will help give you a clear idea about the kind of tutor you may need to hire.
2. DIFFICULTY IN MANAGING TIME
You notice that your child has difficulty prioritizing homework and tests. Often, homework is left unfinished or not turned in. You may also notice your child starts postponing homework and projects, in which case a lot of work accumulates. Many children who have inattentiveness also have difficulty with things like task initiation or task completion. A tutor can often lend support by coaching your children through the homework process.
3. LACK OF CONFIDENCE
Sometimes, difficulty in learning a new concept directly affects your child’s confidence. This makes it difficult to learn other subjects. You may also begin to notice your student shying away from participation in the classroom. A tutor can also act as a mentor, helping to restore the student’s confidence and encouraging him/her participate more during class.
4. SUBJECTS BECOME COMPLICATED
As the students enter a new class or grade, the subjects might look complicated to him/her. To cope up with the increasing complexities of the subject, it is may also be necessary to seek the help of tutor.
5. LEARNING DIFFERENCES
Sometimes, the issue is not because of the factors discussed above. You can contact a tutor if the child has been diagnosed with a learning difference, such as dyslexia, ADHD, or issues with visual processing.
