When you are thinking of ways to teach your children English, you will find that there are many options to choose from. However, when it comes to the quickest way to improve your child’s reading and writing skills you can’t go past high-quality English tutoring.

How an English Tutor Can Help your Kids with Their Language Skills

An English tutor can identify learning gaps quickly and easily

A qualified English tutor has access to the latest diagnostic tests and tools to quickly identify any learning gaps your child may have. And with the right tools, tutors can assess the proficiency and language skills of your kids more accurately

With an accurate assessment, tutors will be able to come up with a better and more personalized learning plan for every child.  

Your kids will feel more open with their tutor

In a regular class setting, there are a large number of students. Introverts will find it difficult to open up about their struggles in reading and writing. 

Some may fear being ridiculed in class. And if your child is falling behind (and the kids in class are quick to work this out), it will definitely affect their self-esteem.

On the other hand, kids are more open with their tutors because they are not afraid of being judged by them. They feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings with them. This is because the kids have developed a sense of trust with their tutor.

There are many benefits that come with this relationship, some of them being:

  • Kids will be able to express themselves better.
  • They will be more confident in themselves and what they have to say.
  • Kids will develop better social skills.
  • The child will develop a sense of belongingness, which is very important for children's development process.

Your kids’ tutor can personalize their learning

With a large number of students, teachers find it more difficult to personalize learning for everyone. 

There is also limited time. So teachers have to stick to the curriculum regardless if a few of their students may benefit from more time being spent learning and understanding the specific topic they are working on.

It’s all-or-none. 

If your child is falling behind, they need to catch up. And if they are excelling already, they need to slow down so that he will be on the same page with his classmates.  

A private tutor, on the other hand, can design a learning plan based on your child's proficiency. No time is wasted. And no one will feel embarrassed if they are falling behind.

And students learn at their own pace.

So even if the tutor decides to advance to the next step or delve into the present one, the student doesn't have anything to be embarrassed about.  

It will make your child feel more confident

A lot of kids feel anxious when they are called out in class. When everyone is watching and hearing what you’re about to say, it can be nerve-wracking. And this can be a big hurdle to learning. 

That can make learning a horrifying and embarrassing experience. 

Tutoring, on the other hand, does not possess this problem. 

Your kids can make mistakes but they need not worry what other children are going to think or say. So this can help your child develop more confidence. And this can make learning English, reading and writing a more pleasant experience for them.
