How Do I Know If My Child Needs a Tutor?

There are many reasons that parents choose to hire a tutor for a child. Some of the signs that your child may need extra support can include:

  • Struggling with homework exercises
  • Concerned feedback from class teachers
  • A drop in assessment results
  • General concern from your child regarding their studies

On the other hand, you may want to consider hiring a tutor for your child in order to:

  • Increase confidence in a subject
  • Supplement classroom teaching
  • Ensure the best results for university places 

Whatever the reason for deciding to use a tutor, it’s important to discuss the reasons with your child. If a student is happy to use the services of a tutor and thinks it will make a difference, there is a higher likelihood that the tuition will be effective.
