Kids’ tuition tips
Considering tuition? Read these expert tips first to help your child get the most from the experience
Is your child lacking confidence in a subject or needing help to prepare for GCSEs, a scholarship or entrance exams? Targeted tuition can help them make better progress. If you’re considering this route, check out these tips from Hayward Heath’s Sussex Tuition Centre.
Identify your child’s academic strengths and weaknesses and determine what help he/she may need.
Talk to them about tutoring. It’s crucial that they understand how it can help them so they feel committed to lessons.
For GCSE and A level exam preparation, make sure that you know their exam boards, syllabus and timeline for exams.
Gather information from school reports, past assessments and any predicted grades so that the tutor can understand how best to support your child.
Choosing a tutor
There is no legal minimum qualification for private tutors so take care to check experience and qualifications along with DBS clearance for your child’s safety.
Getting the best from tuition
Come Prepared: Bring school books, a notebook and pen and any corrected assessments, reports or mock papers which will help identify areas to focus on.
Identify target areas for each lesson: Encourage your child to make a note throughout their week of any issues or questions they would like the tutor to cover in the session.
Ask questions: A tutor is there to answer all the questions your child has, even ones that may seem simple or relate to the previous years’ curriculum. It’s important to clear up any lack of understanding to build a strong foundation for learning.
Sussex Tuition Centre has a host of subject tutors under one roof in Haywards Heath in an environment where children can be taught on an individual or small group basis without the distractions of home. They offer no-obligation consultations.
