Making spring break tutoring more interesting for your child

They say tutoring children is more effective when they are interested in the subject. The question is, how you make the tutoring session interesting? As a provider of in-home spring break tutoring Santa Clarita, CA for years, Santa Clarita In Home Tutoring was able to identify strategies to make the tutoring session more engaging to children.

Some of these are the following:

Make it fun and enjoyable

How can you make it fun and enjoyable? There are plenty of ways. Here at Santa Clarita In Home Tutoring, one way to do it is to introduce a strategy that is, shall we say, unconventional; something that your child does not usually experience in a classroom setting. It could be in a certain learning process that has ‘game’ elements in it.

Another is through recognition. A good tutor should never fail to recognize accomplishments. For instance, when a child was able to answer 10 math problems in a shorter time or when it got 10 out 10, the child deserves some recognition.

Make the session participative

Here at Santa Clarita In Home Tutoring, we give great importance to communication in all of our tutoring sessions, including in our spring break tutoring Santa Clarita, CA. With decades of experience in the tutoring industry, we have understood that communication is key to effective tutoring. If there is a communication gap between the tutor and the child, then there is a great chance that the whole tutoring session becomes a failure. For this reason, it is imperative that any signs that can lead to communication gap should be addressed early on. With established communication, the tutoring session becomes participative. A child can easily open up on the issue he/she has with the subject being learned. In the same manner, the tutor can address any concern right away. In other words, make the session more engaging by making it sure that you understand the child’s concern and issues and that the child understands your thought as well.

Tutoring session with peers

Studies show that ‘interaction dynamics’ make studying more effective, which means that when a child is having a group study with his/her peers, it allows to absorb the lesson more easily. Sharing of thoughts/ideas among them makes them polish their learning. So, if you are having a tutoring schedule with your child over the weekend, you might want to invite his/her friends from the neighborhood to join in.

With A Class Size Of One, The Sky’s The Limit

Study after study shows the enormous power of one-on-one tutoring. The reasons are as obvious as they are compelling. The instruction is delivered at a pace that is comfortable for each student. The subjects are presented in the way best suited to each student’s learning style. The tutor can add depth and meaning to subjects that just can’t be delivered in crowded classrooms where the teacher is under the gun to race through the curriculum.

With one-on-one tutoring delivered in the comfort of the home, the experienced tutor can form a bond that just cannot be created in a one to many classroom environment. The result is great grades and a level of interest and motivation that just doesn’t happen in larger groups, or when the instruction is delivered by software, or by a less qualified teacher.

On Average, Our Students Improve 2 Letter Grades In 60 Days Or Less

Yes, that may sound unbelievable. But at Santa Clarita In Home Tutoring, we have tutored nearly a half a million students over the past twenty years, and the data doesn’t lie. One of our expert tutors, working one-on-one with a motivated student can do remarkable things. Just three hours of tutoring each week, focused directly on the problem subject, using the student’s own classroom materials and curriculum, will deliver rapid improvements in understanding, and raise the student’s homework grades, and quiz and test grades. The payback goes beyond better grades too. The student is more confident, less stressed and develops a stronger foundation for future classes.
