Personally, we have found the past year to be a time of growth and transformation.
However, after months of missed schooling this year, you may be concerned about your child’s education, and, even more concerned about their confidence and wellbeing, which affects their ability to sew seeds of opportunity for their future.
It is an unsettling and unstable time for children
Many children have been affected, with the stress of online learning setting in, the fear of lock downs, and mixed public messages. This can have an adverse affect on their confidence.
With this in mind, parents have been turning to online tutors in droves to help their children catch up. At the same time, other parents remain concerned about whether tutoring is the best way to help their child.
Of course, most teachers are doing a fantastic job keeping education going. The fact remains, many children are being lost in the shuffle. Online group learning has not lived up to its engagement promise.
Here are some things to think about when considering online tutoring as a parent:
A problem often faced in the classroom is that with so many other students, there is little opportunity for the teaching methods used to be personalised to your child.
A tutor doesn't face this issue and is able to personalise learning to the students own individual needs. This can lead children to feeling like they are being ignored.
At Leaarn we use our own AI-powered personality-based matching system to ensure that the tutor and student are more likely to have matching teaching and learning styles.
Online Tutoring can boost your child’s academic performance by allowing them to directly work on areas of a subject they have a problem with.
This will help your child to understand that they can perform better than they may have realised, which will boost their confidence and self esteem, helping them get back on track.
Lifelong learning is key to success
Attitude Toward Learning
By providing your child with an encouraging individualised learning environment, it could lead to them seeing learning as less of a chore, but instead as an opportunity to grow.
This will be a massive benefit to them in their later life, as lifelong learning is key to success. We believe that learning is a gift that is important to provide to as many as possible.
Many parents are concerned about the safety of tutoring, letting a stranger have one-on-one time with your child can be nerve-wracking.
At Leaarn, we have our own video-calling platform integrated into the website, helping enhance the safety of our system by ensuring your children aren't taken to external websites or applications.
It is better to ask than to never understand
Encourages Asking Questions
At school many children often find themselves too nervous to ask questions in class, worrying their questions 'will sound dumb'. Of course, there are no dumb questions, but in school with your peers around you it can feel like it.
Tutoring will help your children understand this, as by having a person dedicated to answering them, it will help them realise it is better to ask than to never understand.
This can help your childs self-esteem, by giving them a chance to have their voice heard.
