There are many benefits that come from having a private, one-on-one tutor. Private tutors do so much more than just helping a student improve grades. If you are a parent of a student in Ann Arbor or the surrounding communities, here are a couple ways that a private tutor from College Tutors of Michigan can help take your student to the next level.
Learn to Study
Knowing how to study and the best way to study for your learning style is something that students should learn prior to heading to college. A tutor’s second pair of eyes can help a student notice their trends and habits while studying and use that information to come up with more productive and efficient strategies for studying. Tutors are experienced individuals that can offer tips and recommendations on skills like studying, test taking and retention.
In a classroom setting, the noises, peers and the environment of the classroom can be distracting and hindering to learning. With a private tutor, one can choose to work in an environment that encourages productivity and is free of distractions.
Tutors also customize their teaching styles according to each student’s needs. Whether your student is a visual, auditory or hands-on learner, a tutor is able to adapt lessons and exercises in a way that would benefit your child most. They can monitor a student’s attention span and take necessary breaks or changes to help get back on track- something that is often overlooked in traditional classroom settings. This service is especially helpful if a student struggles with focusing.
One of the main ways that tutors help students is by helping them improve their grades. If a student is falling behind because they don’t understand a topic or concept in class, a tutor can be there to go over the material in a way that makes the most sense for the student.
Tutors are also agenda-less, meaning they can take as much time as the student needs to go over a concept in order to fully understand it. Oftentimes, parents are very limited on time to help their kids with advanced concepts. A tutor is able to offer students the answers they need to understand a topic but also offer the tools they need to learn and improve on their own.
Find Your Passion
If you are working with a tutor in a specific subject, odds are that they really enjoy and are passionate about that specific subject. That type of enthusiasm and passion is contagious, and a tutor can help your student grow their interest and fascination towards a subject they might not have enjoyed before. A private tutor can help students improve their grades by expanding their knowledge base but also positively changing the way a student views a subject or problem. This type of progress is morale-boosting and before you know it, your student will be more confident in their school work and academic abilities.
These are just a couple of the many ways that a tutor can benefit your student. If you are interested in finding a tutor for your student, contact College Tutors of Michigan today.
