Learn why kids could benefit from the support they need this autumn.
Itís June! Weíve made it out of the woods of a brutal winter lockdown, and the summer we all so badly need is almost upon us. After all the anxiety, stress and disruption youíve had t0 put up with, you and your kids are more than entitled to some R&R and a chance to unwind.
After you enjoy a richly-deserved holiday, we hope the new school year will look a lot more like those pre-2020, with no enforced gaps to disturb your childrenís education and complicate your childcare arrangements. But given how much children have had to deal with, your child might very well benefit from some teaching that goes over and above their normal lessons.
TuitionWorks was launched in April 2021 to help parents and children overcome lost learning and triumph over all their maths assessments, from Key Stage 2 to A-Levels via 11 and Oxbridge entrance exams. TuitionWorks call upon a team of qualified, experienced teachers to provide impactful maths tutoring that helps kids reach their full potential.
Tutoring makes a difference
Maths is something a lot of children struggle with even during those years when their schooling hasnít been subject to sudden cancellation for months on end! But the exact nature of those difficulties can vary hugely from child to child. Fractions are like kryptonite for some kids, while geometry causes others to dash for the classroom door.
With such a range of potential Achilles heels in a class of 30 or more, even the most attentive classroom teachers will struggle to bring every child up to speed with their specific areas of weakness in the curriculum.
Thatís where private tutoring comes in. At TuitionWorks, the very first thing they do is send you a free maths assessment corresponding to your childís stage of learning. Tutors follow that up with a free 15-minute meet and greet session with your tutor to discuss the results in more detail.
This all lets TuitionWorks build a precise picture of your childís current maths skills, so that your tutor can target the specific aspects of the curriculum that they find the hardest.
Real teachers make the best tutors
Being an effective tutor requires more than an encyclopedic knowledge of a chosen subject. Whatever the setting or topic, educating children takes patience, empathy and top-level communication skills. Naturally, the people who do this best tend to be seasoned professional teachers.
Every tutor at TuitionWorks is a fully qualified teacher with a wealth of recent classroom experience. They know the curriculum from top to bottom, and they know how to get it into childrenís heads.
Mentors help children recover
After such a potentially traumatic period of uncertainty and isolation, many children could really benefit from the kind of personal guidance that a great tutor can provide. Having a close relationship with a capable educator can inspire a child and reinvigorate their self-confidence.
That is another benefit of learning from a qualified teacher, who will be trained in the emotional aspects of education and will have direct experience of pastoral care.
New technology has changed the game
If thereís one thing weíve all learned from the last year, itís being in the same room as the people you work with is much less important than it used to be. Thatís certainly true of education today too. In a one-to-one context, distance learning is by no means a poor relation of face-to-face tuition.
New digital platforms have made online learning a hands-on experience. TuitionWorks runs on a cutting-edge educational technology platform designed to make maths lessons fun and engaging.
Tutors can pull out amazing learning aids at the click of a button, while pupils have fun playing in an interactive space. TuitionWorks are very proud of our digital whiteboard, which lets pupils explore new concepts and work problems out with their tutor.
The last year has been a rollercoaster for parents and children, but hopes for a return to normality have never been higher. If you think your child has suffered some setbacks in their education, then some guided instruction from a trained teacher could quickly get them back on track.
TuitionWorks will match your child up with a qualified teacher for a bespoke course of maths lessons that will zero in on points of difficulty. If you think your child could benefit from this kind of personalized learning, all you need to do is arrange your free assessment and one of their tutors will be in touch.
