Is your child hurtling down a slippery slope?

 stressed girls

Imagine this:

On a daily basis, you feel you don’t measure up to your peers.

Every report, letter, project or whatever it is you do that requires confirmation from your boss, returns to you smothered in amendments.

You find meetings stressful and have learned to stay quiet for fear of being rebuked or your ideas rubbished.

This is the embarrassment of failure

It’s a downward spiral that becomes increasingly difficult to return from. There are children in every class who face this daily onslaught to their self-esteem. It doesn’t take many years for them to develop such a loathing of a subject that an almost impenetrable brick wall is built preventing further learning development.

There is hope!

While I’ve painted a desperate picture, and there’s little doubt children like this exist, the majority who encounter such difficulties are not yet beyond rescue. But you have to move quickly. Start while they are still young. Don’t wait until your child has several years of this miserable school existence under their belts. As soon as you suspect, or are told by their teacher that trouble is brewing, act now before it’s too late. Don't leave your child hurtling down that slippery slope!

There is Hope

The Solution

1 to 1 tuition, from an experienced practitioner, can help to save drowning children from these seemingly hopeless depths of despair. It isn’t easy, and it takes lots of time and commitment from both child and parents. But it’s entirely possible.

Why does it work?

1 to 1 tuition is…

  • The only place a child is not constantly aware of their failings compared to their peers.
  • The only place they can speak freely and ask questions without fear of ridicule from ‘friends’.
  • The only place where the learning experiences are tailored precisely to their individual needs.

With the right attitude, support and commitment, they can claw themselves back, giving them hope, peace of mind and better prospects for the future.
