Benefits of a Private Primary Tutor

Having a private primary tutor for your child can be a very beneficial investment, especially if your child is struggling to keep up with their peers. A private primary tutor can be of great help where the teacher or you as a parent can't be available to have one-on-one sessions, or perhaps you'd simply prefer to have a professional tutor your child, rather than cause more confusion with outdated methods. 

The majority of children (not just those who struggle academically) will need extra attention for them to grasp concepts in certain subjects, at one time or another. Studies show that most children benefit enormously and so do their grades, from just an hour of private tutoring each week. 

There are many benefits in giving your child private tutoring. Among them are:

 • Helps to improve your child's self-esteem and confidence

Many children struggling with declining grades will most likely not tell their parents, fearing a reprimand or being a disappointment. Very often parents only find out at Parents' Evenings, by which time the problem could be worse. Struggling children often fail to engage in class for fear of embarrassment, which compounds the issue. Private primary tuition removes this barrier, enabling children to speak in private about their work. This will help your child to be confident in class, attentive and have improved self-esteem.

It provides your child with one-on-one attention

As much as primary teachers want to help their students excel in all their subjects, they have very little time to give on an individual basis, given that they may have more than 30 students in a class. The children who most demand attention tend to get it, those struggling invariably sit quietly and let things pass over them. A private primary tutor can give your child the attention that will identify and tackle the difficult areas until your child is able to understand. The tutor will also be able to identify with your child's learning style and tailor the teaching methods to suit them.

Helps your child to overcome their learning obstacles

Your child may be struggling to understand certain aspects of writing, maths, reading or spelling. A private primary tutor with many years of experience 'at the chalkface' will quickly be able to identify those areas and create learning experiences to tackle them.

It is convenient and flexible

You will be able to schedule tutoring sessions at a time to suit you with primary tutors in Wigan or primary tutors in Warrington. Many parents use the hour to do some work of their own or go shopping. Despite some initial reluctance, the majority of children very quickly get into the routine and soon see for themselves the benefits it gives them back at school.

Your child will improve their academic performance

Having a private primary tutor can be beneficial to a child who is struggling when it comes to sitting their Year 6 SATS or end of year tests. The extra private sessions will allow the tutor to cover certain aspects of exam technique, and give them hints and tips on how best to tackle certain questions. Past paper practice is essential to optimal results.

Investing in a private primary tutor can be the best investment you can make for your child's future. See How To Find The Best Private Tutor for a more detailed breakdown of how parents can ensure the very best tutor for their child.
