English and literacy skills are very important for your child’s success. A solid understanding of language can allow children to grasp difficult concepts as well as communicate effectively and eloquently. English is a subject that is mandatory all throughout your child’s education, therefore creating a solid foundation is important for your child’s success. Frequently, students do not obtain the one on one attention and support they need from their teachers, as time is limited, and class sizes can be quite large. Finding an English tutor for your child is a great way to support your child and develop integral literacy skills, carrying them through school and into post-secondary education. Here at Success Tutorial School we have seen first-hand the benefits of English tutoring and the improvement in students work. If you are on the fence about hiring an English tutor for your child, read and consider the following benefits that English tutors provide:
Develop Reading and Writing Skills
Having one on one support when reading literature and writing essays, can really help students develop and refine their skills. English literature can have a lot of in-depth undertones and themes, or even words that may be difficult for some students to read and understand on their own. However, with additional support from a tutor, students can develop those skills and begin to pick up and understand complex words and themes throughout many types of literature. Additionally, when it comes to writing, students often benefit from developing their voice. It is common for students to be stuck in a repetitive voice that may not fit the theme or expectations of the assignment. Therefore, having a tutor can help develop student voice and practice using multiple voices and perspectives in their writing. This will make them stronger and more confident writers.
Engage Students in English
For some students, English may not be their most favoured subject. Often, students may find literature and writing to be a boring task. Having a personal English tutor can help keep students engaged. English tutors can create engaging lessons and activities targeted to their student’s interests. Here at Success Tutorial School, our educators pride themselves on engaging their students in order to help them understand and learn. It’s also important to create meaningful real-life connections for students. These connections help make lessons more realistic and purposeful for student learning.
Create Confidence in your Student
For some students, frustration surrounding English could be rooted in feeling unconfident in their language skills. If students do not feel confident in their reading skills, they may become frustrated with reading and try to avoid it when possible. This also goes for writing – if students do not feel confident in their skills, they will likely try to avoid it as much as possible. However, with a private tutor their confidence will increase, encouraging them to continue to read and write. The more the students practice reading and writing, the more they will develop their skills and gain confidence, in turn creating stronger readers and writers.
Help Students Become Organized
When it comes to writing, brainstorming and organizing are key factors in a successful writing piece. This may not always come naturally, as students often just want to get their writing started and over with. Encouraging students to lay out their initial ideas and brainstorm their points and the information they want to communicate, will be integral to creating a strong writing piece. Over time, this encouragement and practice will create a strong and confident writer.
Improve Vocabulary and Communication
By providing your child with an English tutor, their language skills will improve. An increase in understanding of unfamiliar words can create a stronger vocabulary for your child. This will create a wider vocabulary and increased communication skills in your child. Being an effective communicator is important not only in academics, but in a multitude of areas in life. A supportive tutor will positively impact their writing skills as well as their oral language and presentation skills, making them competent and confident speakers.
