As children progress through school, they will experience ups and downs. This is normal. Sometimes they are related to a specific subject or content. COVID and virtual schooling seem to have enhanced these challenges over the past 18 months. As we head into the new school year, a lot of questions linger. How will students adjust to being back in person? How will they get back into learning? How will not learning as much last year impact then. Here at Galin, we are getting a lot of requests for tutors from parents, so we thought we’d lay out the reasons for a student to work with a tutor during the 2021-2022 school year.
Higher Level of Understanding: We often get requests from students in advanced courses that want to better learn the content and get supplemental instruction in addition to what they receive in class. For students in Honors and AP classes, this will help them master the material better.
Get an A Instead of a B: In college admissions, one of the most common questions we get from parents is “Should my student get an A in a regular class or a B in an AP class?” Whether it’s this scenario or a similar one, students don’t have to be stuck in those two outcomes. Working with a tutor can help a student enhance their learning and get an A instead of a B or a B instead of a C.
Struggling in a Subject: This is usually the most obvious reason to most people. If a student is not performing well in a class, they can get 1-on-1 support to assist them with their learning and help them better understand content.
More Personal Sessions- Most students will learn better in a one-on-one setting instead of a classroom environment. Being able to work with a tutor for just one hour a week can have huge upside for a student’s ability to learn content and build their confidence in a class, especially when that tutor is customizing material to the student’s specific needs.
