5 Ways Elementary School Tutoring Helps Kids Succeed
Elementary school tutoring has a direct impact on students’ success in the primary grades and beyond! Here are 5 of the top ways that tutoring helps kids succeed throughout their entire education.
5. Develop A Love of Learning
Kids are naturally curious and love to absorb information about the world around them—but that doesn’t mean they love sitting in a classroom! Our tutors help students see how textbooks and formal lessons can connect them to the world around them.
In fact, when our tutors work directly with students, we learn what motivates and inspires them and then use those passions to connect kids to the lessons they are learning in school. When kids see that their love of baking is rooted in science, or their favourite video games were designed using math, they will care more about their studies. When students develop a love of learning, school becomes easier!
4. Improve Academic Performance
Many parents start researching tutoring agencies after their students start to struggle in school. If you’re in this situation right now, you are not alone. High student to teacher ratios and busy classroom environments can make it almost impossible for some students to learn everything that is (or isn’t!) being taught. Fortunately, tutoring can help fill in any gaps and get your students academics back on track!
Our tutoring philosophy is built around learning styles. We discover how each student learns best—whether that’s through visuals, audio, reading, or writing—and then cater our lessons to their natural learning styles. This makes learning new things significantly easier and can have a profound impact on performance within the classroom.
We also work with students to understand any of their emotional, physical, or mental limitations, and help develop tools to overcome them. For example, if a student is great at learning but freezes during tests, we will set aside time to help that student develop test-taking skills and overcome any anxiety.
3. Boost Confidence & Self-Esteem
Your student’s confidence and self esteem will impact their ability to learn, so it only makes sense that we tutor in a way that improves confidence and builds self-esteem.
Nothing is more discouraging than feeling like you aren’t good at something and some students genuinely believe they aren’t capable of learning certain subjects. Our tutors work with our students to show them first-hand that they are incredibly capable of learning, even when it’s tough. We take time to build learning skills in a positive way and then reflect on successes when they occur.
By teaching our students that they can learn challenging subjects like math or English, we build their natural confidence! And one of the best things about new confidence is that it improves every aspect of life, including those beyond the classroom.
2. Develop Skills For Life
One of the main ways that Tutoring…With A Twist*stands out from other tutoring agencies is our devotion to teaching skills that will serve students for life! In addition to building up knowledge in specific subject areas, we also help children develop skills based on their unique needs.
Every tutoring commitment starts with a meeting where we get to know the student and their family personally. We take the time to understand each student, including their motivations and challenges, so we can develop a learning plan that makes sense for them. For every student, this learning plan includes the development of important skills that will help them succeed beyond the classroom.
1. Create Healthy Routines & Habits
Elementary school students have years of school ahead of them, and the habits they create in the primary grades will help form the long-term relationship they have with their education. We work with students to develop healthy routines and habits that will help them throughout their entire schooling career.
When students attend tutoring on a regular basis, they automatically see that learning is part of their ongoing routine. Regular homework and studying just become an ordinary part of life and students truly reap the rewards when they enter high school.
Elementary School Tutoring Testimonials
“I would recommend you anytime. My daughter’s confidence soared and her grades along with that. Keep doing what you are doing.” -MP, Parent of an Elementary Math Student
“My Twisted Tutor believed in me. She knew I could do it so then I knew I could do it. Also, she was fun which made learning fun. She also taught me that if I did the harder work first, I could reward myself with doing something I loved.” -DF, Homeschooled Elementary Multi-Subject Student
“In our first session, it was explained that students could be two grades below or two grades higher in a particular subject area. This gave me such piece of mind because I knew my child was struggling but I didn’t know why. Tutoring…With A Twist gave us the solution – build back my son’s foundation by meeting his where he was at. Then, introduce grade level concepts. Thanks!” -GH, Parent of an Elementary Multi-Subject Student
“I love how my Twisted Tutor used the things that I LOVE, to help me learn. It was very helpful to get me to like and understand the material. Other students would really like my tutor because she has a sweet personality and is very open.” -GB, Elementary Student
“When it was explained that most schools primarily cater to a Read/Write Learner and that my child was a Kinesthetic Learner – I almost started to cry. My son that I was told needed medication and should go in a special class, just needed some tools and strategies to help him better understand how he learned. Tutoring…With A Twist went one step further as they worked with us, as a family, and my son’s school to ensure everybody was meeting his learning needs. His grades and confidence soared and he’s never looked back!” -BF, Parent of an Elementary Math & English Student
