Home Tutors can be a source of academic support to your child. They maintain an overview of their tutees’ academic progress/development and provide regular one-to-one feedback and guidance.
Home tutors guide, encourage and support their tutees in developing independent learning skills enabling them to complete set tasks in the negotiated time. A good relationship between personal tutors and their tutees encourages students to talk about their achievements and any difficulties they are experiencing.
Because home tutoring is such a personal experience, home tutors are aware of the different needs of their students, recognise the signs of potential problems and identify the most appropriate support for them. They are able to recognize the child’s strengths, weaknesses and learning patterns which is very important to helping children master difficult concepts.
